When it comes to a domestic removal, the removals company that you chose can be a massive part of the success or failure of the process. You will find that you need to get a company whose team you get on with on a personal level, as well as a team who just work hard, or give you the best quote. It can be difficult to know how these things will pan out when you are looking at hiring someone however, as it can often be the case that you are unable to really sample the goods as it were! There are a few ways in which to gauge the likelihood of you getting on with a company, but it will always be a bit of a risk. No matter how long you spend ensuring that you think the company is right for you, it is impossible to protect against things out side of anyone’s control, like illness, traffic and the various other things that can affect a removal company’s performance on your job. You will no doubt find that the following tips and tricks should help you make a decent selection, but as always, remember that the process of finding a company for your move is entirely subjective; you may not care about whether the team are friendly, as long as the price is right, whereas someone else may be willing to pay a premium for a certain level of customer service. It depends on preference entirely.Given that no one knows you better than your friends and family, it is best to try and get a recommendation from someone that you know as to who you should be using for your move. You will find that many of the best companies of this sort are passed around by word of mouth, as they are very well respected. This means that you will be sure to get a good service, as the company will be looking to protect their reputation, given that it is the mainstay of their client base. A recommendation from a friend will also ensure that they think that you will get on with the team, given that the friend knows you, and has worked with the company... It’s a no brainer really!If you can’t make a personal recommendation work, then perhaps it is time to look into finding an advertised company. The internet is full of companies that are ready to do the job for you, but how do you know if they are any good? Well, it all comes down to your own intuition when speaking to them on the phone, as well as the recommendations that you find on online reviews sites. Independent reviews sites are a great place to find ideas about how certain companies have treated their customers in the past. Previous clients will upload their reviews and testimonials, outlining what they did and did not like about how their move went. You will be able to notice trends and traits emerging through these reviews, where you can then make decisions about what sound good for you and what is bad. Try to keep your mind on the overall picture, rather than just focusing on isolated incidents, as this will only lead to you focusing on the terrible moments, rather than the good! The final frontier is the phone. You can call up the removals companies for a chat about your move, and how they would approach it. This is both a good chance to get to know the team, as well as a time to extract valuable information about how they work, as well as the price.
