Removal companies come in all shapes and sizes ranging from the small family business to the large international company and from firms selling general removal services to ones providing specialist services such as international transportation. Specialist firms might be just the ticket if you are planning to move the Steinway piano or expensive works of art, or if you are emigrating, but in the majority of cases general removal services are the more affordable option.
Before booking a removal firm there are several essential decisions which you need to make. The most essential decision is whether you are wanting to move under your own steam. Typically this becomes a courageous choice the older you are for the reason that the majority of the population gather more and more household items as they grow older.
If you do wish to move yourself, there are companies which can rent out appropriate removal vans and provide packing cases and resources and, if you need to store anything, a lot of towns now have at least one self-storage facility.
Many families, understandably, do decide to use professional house movers. The following hot hints can help your relocation to go smoothly.
Friday is the common day for house moving. Many removal companies are booked up on Friday than any other day of the week. It can be simpler, and maybe more affordable, to employ the firm you want if you can move on a day other than Friday.
Make sure that you get more than one quote. Prices may vary widely.
Look into getting references of any of the removal companies from whom you receive a quote.
Decide who does the boxing. There is an extra cost for this service if carried out by your removal service but the benefit is obvious. Remember that if you do your own packing up you can not be covered for breakages under terms of your contract with the removal company. In any case, you should read what the position is under your home insurance.
If you let the removers do your boxing, check that you have packed your purse, overnight kit and car keys in a secure location. Removal companies often move speedily through the packing up and finding that any of these items have been packed and relocated onto the van can prove to be a little stressful.
Ensure that you are sure about what needs to be moved. A debate on the morning that the removal is about to take place about whether your shed that is filled to the roof with garden tools, the young ones’ toys and DIY tools will fit in the van and is included in the price can be an additional cause of hassle.
Don’t pack the kettle, sugar, tea, coffee or teaspoons, and purchase at least double the volume of biscuits which you think and team of removers could possibly devour. They will all disappear.
Ensure that any pets are kept inside in a secure place from the night before you move. Hunting for the kittie whilst the remainder of the family waits to drive to your new home is no joy.
