If you are worried that moving house may be the straw that breaks your back, then you should relax, because tee are these wonderful companies who do much of the work for you, Removers! We know you are aware of home removals companies, but you may not be as clued up as to how much easier they can make your life, should you find the best removal companies for you. Getting the balance between service and cost can be the difference between the move being easy, and finding yourself amongst a living hell of dropped boxes and late arrivals!
The first port of call for finding the best removal companies for you, is research. Doing your homework is very, very important as it will give you the upper hand when you are calling around to get your initial quotes. Get yourself online, and look up the removers in your area, finding out who is closest to you, and who can offer the service most suited to your needs. Give some thought to how much stuff you have to get packed up and moved, as well as how far you will be traveling with all of it. Be aware that fuel costs and the like must be factored in to the final cost, as well as the labour costs, according to the amount of men you use on the day, and how many days the move takes.
Many larger removals companies will offer a home visiting service, which will give both you and the company an idea of the realistic scale of the move. If you go down this path, then get a few companies round, rather than just the first one that you find, as they may well attempt to convince you that you need a more full scale service than you actually do. There is no use in having two lorries and ten men for a small two bedroomed house is there?
Look online for reviews as to who is the best in your area, but be wary of fake reviews, either positive ones written by the company themselves, or negative ones written by the competition! It will be hard to discern them, but the genuine ones will usually stand out against any fraudsters!
When you feel like you have a good idea as to how much your move should cost you, and what kind of things you need from your removal company, you can start getting quotes from the companies that you feel are best for you. Having a variety of quotes will let you do the talking when it comes to haggling down the price a little, and getting the price right for you. Before you sign anything or put any money down, take a read through of the contract and the small print, and seek advice from a friend or anyone who knows more about the legal process than yourself, should you find something that you do not understand. It is very easy to be duped in to signing away the rights to irritating and sometimes game changing hidden fees, for things like overtime and boxes that are too heavy etcetera.
Hopefully you have found a trustworthy remover who has given you a decent price for the perfect service, and will be everything you need them to be. Our last bit of advice, once the remover is found, is to have a few conversations with the head of the move as to how you want the move to go, so that everything is as relaxed for you as possible.
