When you’re moving house there’s a lot you need to know, and it can be quite daunting. We’ve compiled a list of some things you should know before you hire a mover in London – or anywhere for that matter!
It’s handy to know what type of mover you require – are you moving across the country, or just a few miles away? There are local removal companies as well as long-distance removal companies, so decide which one you need as the first step.
Before you hire anyone for anything, make sure you do your research: read reviews, compare prices, ask for recommendations. See who offers what, and for what price, and decide who has the best deal for you. Make sure you read the small print, too, so you know exactly what costs are involved from start to finish. If you find yourself in need of extra cash to cover moving expenses, why not look into applying for a short term loan? Click here for more details.
When you think you’ve found the right moving company, ask around a bit more – have any of your friends, family or colleagues used them, and what do they have to say? Ask the company themselves as many questions as you feel the need to – after all, that’s who you’ll be trusting with your precious belongings! Check their insurance and licensing, get a feel for the sort of people they are, and find out exactly how they work.
If the company are coming to visit your current house before giving you an estimate, make sure you show them everything they need to see – so everything you want to move! – to avoid any added costs later on. Keep hold of the estimate they give you, in case they want to change it later on and you need to challenge it.
When you feel confident about the removals company you’ve chosen, go ahead and hire them for a completely smooth move.
