Finding the Right Moving Service
There are so many types of moving service, and companies can often bamboozle you with extra charges, leaving you paying more than you want for moving house. The best way to avoid paying more is to take a good look at your quote, and exactly what it covers.
The most basic heavy ítem Mover service you might look at is simply hiring a van and doing the whole lot yourself. If this is what you are after, you cut down on a massive amount of costs. Of course, you’ll probably wind up buying your friends a few drinks to say thank you if you’re getting a little help. Remember, you have no insurance for your belongings if you choose this route.
The next, and very popular moving service option is a man with van from the yellow pages or online. You need to know how much, if any, insurance they have if you go down this route. It’s also worth thinking about the size of the van here. Very often it will be a transit or a Luton-sized van, and you may have trouble moving larger pieces of furniture.
Getting a quote from a removal company is a common first step for most people when they move house. On this quote should be exactly how much money you’re being charged for boxing, packing and moving. Unpacking is a less common moving service option, but it can be a lifesaver if you are looking to do the whole move as easily as possible. Hiring boxes is one of those extra charges that you need to look at with this kind of moving service.
Boxes are often listed as fully refundable. Remember, though, if you write or damage the boxes, the removal company are unlikely to take them back. VAT is another concern, and is often left for you to work out. Payment for this moving service is usually done on the day, but it’s worth holding off payment until the job has been completed to your satisfaction, namely after all your furniture is in your new house.
