Making sure you hire the right removal company can be a difficult decision. After all, you are trusting this removal company to transport your most precious belongings. Not only that, but your removal company are also largely responsible for ensuring your moving day goes to plan with minimal stress.
Choosing the wrong removal company could result in many unwanted complications, such as an increased cost last minute, damaged goods, insufficient insurance cover, or more. These are of course amongst the last things you would want to happen when you are moving home.
This of course begs the question – how do you choose a removal company? Is it down to price? Who is available on the day? Which surveyor you preferred? In this blog post, we will talk you through how to choose the best removal company for you.
Find a Reliable Removal Company
The first step is to get a quote from a removal company. Whilst some companies use video link, but we always endeavour to visit the property in person. We believe that when a removal company visits in person the surveyor is able to get a much better understanding not only of your belongings and the overall volume of items, but also the property itself (to help plan the move) and your personal needs.
By doing this, the removal company is able to offer you a quote tailored especially to your needs, not a one-size-fits-all approach. By understanding your move, the surveyor can quote accurately upfront, reducing the need for any increased or additional charges closer to moving day.
It pays to be upfront with the surveyor so they can account for your needs from the start, reducing costs in the long run.
However, we argue that price is not the main thing to consider when choosing a removal company. Although it should be considered, it should not be the main criteria. Instead opting for a company that takes your needs into account and offers you the right service for you should take priority. For example, a fully-fledged removals company such as Cube Removal Company will nearly always cost more than a man-and-van service, however we provide a much higher level of service, with more protection for your belongings, and a greater capacity.
It is important to consider how different removal companies operate. Many removal companies have operated for generations and their working practices have not changed since day one.
