Home & Office Relocation From Surrey: Choosing A Removal Company

Posted on April 17, 2015 by W.H.Cox


Moving house or office can be a complicated and time consuming process – not to mention emotional and stressful. Finding a removal company that is understanding, professional and affordable is one way to help ease the stress and confusion on moving day. If you are looking for a removal company, consider these tips and tricks:

1. Know Your Budget

Before you meet with any removal companies it is important to know how much you are willing to spend. Do a bit of research and look at what is cheapest, what is at the higher end and what comes somewhere in between. Usually the cheaper companies are a bit too good to be true!

Try to find a happy medium between price and quality and what you think is value for money versus doing the move yourself. Set a budget and use this as leverage to get the price you want if necessary – most will be willing to accommodate.

2. Be Organised

Don’t look for your removal company a week before the move! Allow for at least a month, if not more, to ensure you can discuss all your needs, get the best price and have a solid plan in place. While it may not always be possible, organising the move well in advance has many benefits.

3. Go Local

Don’t let increasing fuel costs cost you. Choose a removal company within an hour of your beginning or end destination to avoid any hidden fees that may spring up. This also makes it easier to meet with the removers before the big day.

4. Meet In Person

Although emails and phone calls may be easier, they won’t give you the real feel of a company or allow them to give you an accurate estimate. Many companies will come out to your home and provide a free quote. Take this time to ask any questions and explain as much about the move as possible.
