If are you moving house there are so many things to think of, it can become quite overwhelming. Here are some simple tips for choosing the right removal service for you.

1 Delivery service type

You will want to choose the delivery service that is best equipped to meet your needs. This will of course depend the size and amount packages you wish to send and to where you are sending. For same day delivery within your local area, a local courier is almost always the most cost efficient choice. Long haul journeys or even abroad with huge volumes, a regional or national freight carrier is your best option.

2 Price

Everyone wants better bang for their buck and house removal services are no different. It is important to remember that the lowest price may not necessarily mean the best value. Make your decision on cost after you have confirmed that the courier can cover all your needs. Also if a company is cheap, ask yourself why. Are the vans they use dated? Are they using unskilled staff? Sometimes paying an extra few bob can be worth it in the long run if you know your valuables are safe.

3 Meet and greet

A good removal firm will come out to your home and provide a free quote. Use this opportunity to ask them as many questions as possible. Show them any objects that may be heavy and awkward to carry and remove. These people are professionals so should be able to answer any questions that you have about house removal services.

4 Insurance

When shipping valuable goods it is vital that you have insurance in case anything goes wrong. Any reputable courier should be able to provide you with an insurance policy to cover damaged, undelivered, or missing goods.

Good luck with your move, and may you be very happy in your new home.
