Whether you are moving next door, down the road, to another town, or even to another country, choosing the right removal company can make all the difference when moving home. And the same principle applies if you are relocating your offices or other commercial premises.
To help you decide whether you do actually need a removal company or not, the team at Easy Move Removals have come up with some important guidelines that you should consider before using this service.
Physical and Mental Organisation
Never underestimate the amount of physical and mental organisation it takes to move the contents of your home or office to a new one. Packing boxes is one thing, but lugging them in and out of vans and up and down stairs is another, and can be extremely exhausting, especially if you’re on a tight deadline to vacate the property.
If you’ve a sizeable amount to shift or large items of furniture; lots of valuable items, such as antique furniture or fragile pieces; or complex IT equipment and desks, it’s best to choose a removal company to take the burden off your shoulders, so you can concentrate on organising the rest of your move.
Make sure that you get several professional quotes well in advance of any proposed completion date. Take into account the price, the service you will receive and when the companies are able to carry out the move.
For extra ease and convenience, many professional removal companies will offer a packing service, too, so that you can be confident that everything will be taken care of.
Many will give you an instant indicative quote online, but it’s better to get a detailed assessment from the removal company. Most removal companies will send out a sales estimator to see what you have to move. This allows them to price the quote more accurately and should help you choose a removal company more easily.
The quotation process can take a couple of weeks and finding an available date might take another couple of weeks, so give yourself enough time to choose a removal company. Remember, many removal companies are booked up weeks in advance, so it pays to start looking for a removal company well before your completion date is due.
If you can, provide your removal company with details of your new property’s access points and layout, so they are aware of what to expect when they get there. For example, how many flights of stairs are there, will furniture fit through the doors, are there any alternative access routes?
Most removal companies will provide you with dedicated moving insurance against loss or breakages of your property while it’s in transit.
Make sure this is the case before booking anyone. You should also contact your home contents insurer to find out if your current policy will insure your property while it’s being moved, too.
Get a recommendation
The best way to choose a removal company is from a positive recommendation from a friend or family member or from the removal company’s website. This takes away much of the uncertainty surrounding service expectations if you can be reasonably sure of their performance with other customers.

If you can’t get a recommendation, then trust your instincts and go with the company that has demonstrated professionalism, helpfulness and friendliness in your contact with them.
Above all, make sure you have a good rapport with your removal company as you’re trusting them with your worldly goods and a good relationship will make the transition as smooth and painless as possible.
