When moving house, you have more than enough things to worry about and organize, so obviously you don’t want anything to go wrong on the big day. Here are some additional pointers for choosing a removal company, to ensure you have a little more peace of mind when moving to your new home.
One easy step is to check out some unbiased reviews relating to the companies you are considering hiring. Any old company can outsource a copywriter to make their service sound great, but customer feedback carries the most validity in identifying a good service.
Once you’ve narrowed your search down a bit, the next step would be to ask your first choice for a survey. All good removal companies should be available to visit you free of charge and draft a binding quote. By doing this, they are able to assess the volume of items that need to be moved while looking over any access issues concerning your property.
It’s always a good idea to ask a potential removal company about the protection they have for any goods they transport to give you further peace of mind that your possessions are covered.
Finally, you should find out well in advance how the company wants to be paid. Approach any firms that insist on a cash-in-hand payment or significant cash deposit with extreme caution. The most trustworthy companies accept payment not only in cash but in credit/debit and cheque as well.
