Choosing a removal company can be a daunting task. You are selecting a business to come into your home and move your possessions. Whether you are moving across the street or across the country you want to select the right company for your move.

Still not sure? Check out our top tips below:

Removal Quotation

In most cases, a survey would be required. This should give both you and the removals company some peace of mind that everything is accounted for! After a survey has been conducted a professional company will be able to understand the resources required for your removal. This should avoid any issues on the day. It is important that the removal company is aware of the requirements of your removal as it will avoid additional charges from being added at a later stage.


Quality Recommendations

Word of mouth is a good way to get an honest understanding of the level of service a company provides. Ask friends, family and neighbours if they have moved with any local companies and you will be able to get an honest opinion about companies in your area.

Excellent Reviews

Check reviews in several places such as Google Maps to ensure that previous clients have been satisfied with the service provided.

Environmental Impact

Ensure that the company you choose takes steps to reduce its carbon footprint. A professional removal company should be providing you with industry-standard materials from environmental sources and suppliers. It can also be worth ensuring that your chosen company uses vehicles that produce low emissions.

Additional Services

It is important to check that the company you contact offer the services you require, whether that be packing materials, a packing service or a company that can dismantle and reassemble your furniture.

Even if you do not require it initially, it is important to ensure storage is available via your moving company, should you have an issue with obtaining access to your new property.
