How to Choose the Best Removal Company for your Needs

14May 2013

When it comes to moving house, choosing a good removal company to help satisfy your needs is crucial.  Whether it's distance they need to travel or cost, you should not settle for anything less than you desire. First of all look at the distance of where you need to travel and where you are. Try and find available removal services around one of those areas- if you try and get one on the other side of a county to where you are they may try and charge you extra when you could just have chosen one closer. Be sure they will not over charge you to go to where you need. Some may even have a standard rate that they charge per van. Always start closest to where you are/need to be and work outwards rather than starting from the outside looking in. Following on from distance and as I touched on previously, you should always look at the price. You may have a strict budget, on with a flexible amount either side or you are willing to pay anything to get the job done. Be careful with the latter: you could get overcharged. There will be a removal service (hopefully) on every point on the price scale however more and more companies are charging competitive prices, so you may find they are all similar or the same. In that case how do you choose? Research the companies. Try narrowing your selection down to about 5 and then research each one online. Pay attention to any reviews there may be as these could give crucial information that could make or break or deal with a company. Try phoning them up-the person on the other end of the phone represents a company and is really the face of the business. This will give you a feel for how helpful they are and what they are willing to do. You could even try and negotiate the price. If you don't feel there is something right at this stage, there is no problem in deleting them from your list of possible candidates. There are plenty more fish in the sea and there will always be plenty of other places to choose from. If you want to take things further to make sure everything will be exactly to how you want, see if they have an office or a base as such where you can go and discuss business with them. This may show you the people who will be moving your furniture and you could get to know them a bit further if you wished. Moving house is a bit task and you want everything during the process to go as smoothly as possible. There is no harm in doing extra research and checking places out-you are a customer and it is entirely your decision who you want handling your furniture. It is good to understand a company before you use them as they have to have a certain degree of care for your belongings rather than just wanting to get the job done. Happy hunting!
