If you have a lot of stuff that will be coming with you, including valuable items, antiques and fragile pieces, it would be suitable to opt for a removal company to relieve you of the duty of carrying out that task. It will allow you to focus on organising you actual move.

Obtain quotes

Ensure to gain several professional quotes well in advance of any proposed completion date. Take into account the price, the service you are going to receive and the date of when the companies will be able to conduct the move.

Allow time for yourself

Waiting for your quotes, which can take up to a number of weeks, and waiting for a date, an additional set of weeks, will need to be done in advance, allowing time for these to be processed and giving you more time to decide on a removal company.
Bear in mind that many removal companies will be booked up weeks in advance, so it pays to start looking for a removal company well before your completion date is due.

Plan

Highlight if there will be numerous flights of stairs and how many, if the furniture will fit through the doors and if there are any alternative access routes.

Insurance

Also, contact your home contents insurer to find out if your current policy can insure your possessions while it is being moved.

Negotiate

Depending if you are comfortable with negotiating a price, see if you are able to obtain a discount from the removal company. However, make you are aware that moving house at peak times, such as weekends and during the school holidays will be more costly because of the high demand.
If the date of the move doesn’t necessarily have to be on a weekend or during the school holidays, try to move on a weekday, possibly making your move cheaper.

Safety

Stay safe by checking if your prospective removal companies are members of either The British Association of Removers or The National Guild of Removers and Storers.
Both of these organisation are dedicated to providing excellence in the removals industry for the benefit of both removal companies and their clients.
They have standards and a set code of conduct that their members should abide by, thus you can be reassured of their professionalism.

Obtain recommendations

One of the best ways of selecting any removal company is through positive recommendations from your peers. This essentially takes away a lot of that uncertainty surrounding service expectations if you can be reasonably sure of their performance with other customers.
If you are unable to obtain a recommendation, rely on your instincts, whether the company has demonstrated professionalism, helpfulness and friendliness in your contact with them.
If you think they are quite expensive, enquire if the price would be up for negotiation. Ensure you have a satisfactory rapport with your removal company as you will be trusting them with your possessions – a good relationship will make the transition all the more smooth.
