How to find a good removals company
As always, finding a good service provider can be hard, but not impossible! The issue with the task of finding a removal company is that, the general public do not move home very often, and more than likely your family or friends have probably not moved home recently either.
The top 4 sources to find a quality removal company could be...
1st - You could ask a family or friends for a recommendation; may be somebody has recently used a good quality removal company and offer help finding you a mover.
2nd - You could ask your estate agent for a recommendation; any good house removal company will have estate agents or solicitors who can recommend them.
3rd - You could check you local trusted traders, Yellow pages website, Thompson local or any other source which may provide a rating list.
4th - You could then have a quick look online first and view different removal companies and what they offer, you could have a quick call around and ask a few questions on how they can help you.
Hopefully the 4 suggestions above will supply you with a trust worthy, competitive and professional removal company.
What questions to ask a potential removal company?
Again there’s hundreds of questions flying around your head, and you may have questions that sound daft to ask, but at the end of the day, you may only move home a few times in your life and it certainly is not something you will choose to do regular basis.
A top question must be, are you insured? Ideally your potential mover should have at least £10,000 goods In transit insurance per van. This insurance will cover any accidental damage to your items.
I know it sounds hard to read but accidents can and do happen, and sometimes with all good intentions, the very best removal companies can have a hiccup and accidentally damage an item. If you witness something that gets damaged, just make a mental note or even write it down and then discuss this with your mover at the end of the day. It is best doing this, than jumping down your movers neck, as they will already be upset and disappointed in them selves for damaging an item, the last thing you want is your removal porter losing even more concentration which could lead to something else being damaged. I hope this makes sense....
Now a great start would be to invite your chosen removal company to your home, so you can meet them and discuss your requirements.
When the removal surveyor arrives, be as honest and open as possible, explain any problems you can foresee regards access, damaged furniture, heavy or very fragile pieces or if you have a particular item that is very sentimental to you or your family.
Please remember, there’s no daft or unusual questions, I am confident that most removal companies will have heard and answered so many questions from all walks of life, scenarios with different or unusual properties that you will struggle to shock or confuse a removal surveyor.
Most removal companies will explain how they would complete your removal, with the least amount of stress and hassle as possible. They may even advise you to have an extra service such as packing if they feel you need the help.
I hope this information helps in finding a good quality removal company.
