How to choose a removal company in Sussex
How to choose a removal company?
Moving home can be quite daunting and searching for a removal company can feel time consuming.
You hear so many horror stories these days in the news of removal companies that have taken money and not turned up or drove off with customer goods, it is so important to choose wisely.
There a few things to consider:-
Online survey Vs Home Survey?
Whilst it may seem an easier option to get and book a quote online it is potentially leading to problems on your moving day.
Did you forgot to tell them all that was in the loft? Or how many plant pots you have in the garden? Are you sure you will fit your kitchen into five large boxes? We all need to have a budget for everything in the current climate. While it may feel time consuming to have two or three removal companies to your home to quote, it really is the best way to do it! If it does not all fit on the van on the day it will be there problem to deal with at their costs – rather than yours.
If you choose to use an online questionnaire, please be aware you are likely to receive a low quote to get your business first. However there is likely to be an increase of charges come moving day.
Moved By Experts do offer video surveys which are just as easy and sometimes more convenient whilst juggling family and working life alongside moving home.
Where to find a removals company?
Word of mouth is always a go too. We all love to have tradesman recommended who have done a good job in the past.
When you find a company you are interested in research them a lot! www.checkatrade.com can provide a wealth of information on a business and you know that the company is investing their money to be part of it.
Look at google reviews and the feedback given.
Why you shouldn’t choose solely based on price.
Costings are important to all of us. Whilst some companies may be ridiculously high with their quote, please be mindful of quotes that are ridiculously cheap. It costs a lot to run a removal company – do they have insurance? Get some like for like comparisons – these will probably vary a bit. The middle ground is normally the best!
