Making sure you have the right moving services for your Soho move may seem a bit intimidating at first, as there are a large amount of services on offer, ranging from one man band man and van operations to fully fledged national removal companies. In order to make the right and most cost effective choice, there are a few questions you should ask yourself about your move, and some general advantages and disadvantages that should be considered when investigating potential movers, as some may be a better choice for your move than others.
Your moving requirements
Firstly, what type of relocation are you doing? Are you moving to another property in the Soho area, for example, or perhaps moving abroad or to another part of the country? Will you need to make use of any additional services during your move, such as storage or packing? How much can you set aside for a moving budget, and how much do you want to try and do yourself? These are all key questions when it comes to helping you identify the best service for you.
Soho Removal companies
If you are planning on moving over a fairly long distance or have a lot of things to move, then a removal company might be the best option. As it is very likely that your move will take over a day, you will get full value for money from a removal company, as they generally will charge you by the day. This means you’ll be able to make full use of their service, and if you have a very large amount of things to move, it’s better to hire a company that can handle everything in the least amount of trips. Also, moving companies will have a number of people on hand to pack and load, which will help speed things along and this extra help will be well worth the expense.
Man and van
On the other hand, if you are moving to a new property within the Soho or Greater London area, or don’t have much stuff to move, a man and van will probably work out as the better option. As you can probably travel to your new property in an hour or two, hiring a removal company that charges by the day will probably mean that you won’t be getting full value out of such a service. Conversely, most Soho man and van operators are very flexible with their availability and rates, meaning that if you only need to hire someone for a few hours, you can do so, which will be much more cost effective. You also get the advantage of another pair of hands to help you load and unload, which is an added bonus and will speed things up even if your move is fairly small.
Once you have a clear idea of what kind of service you want, you can start looking in the local Soho telephone directory or online for Soho moving services. It can be worthwhile asking around friends, family or colleagues who might have used moving services in the area recently too, as you can get good honest feedback and recommendations on who might be the best choice. Either way, try to get at least a handful of quotes so you can compare prices and choose the best option. If you get any quotes that seem very low or too good to be true, then double check that the company or provider is registered with the British Association of Removers, as this ensures a company is professional and accountable if they do anything unsavoury.
