When it comes to choosing a removals service, you will likely find that you are bombarded with options from the off. With the high concentration of removals companies in the UK, there has never been as many options to choose from, and you will likely find that you are slightly overwhelmed by the various options that you have! There are ways in which to reduce the stress of choosing the right company for your removal services, as you will find in our set of handy hints and tips for making the right decision, when it comes to wisely choosing your removals service or man and van.
The first and most helpful thing that you can do for your choice, as well as for the whole move, is to give yourself as much time as possible. This may mean starting a good month or two in advance of the move, and getting the planning going alongside booking in your removals company can mean that your whole move is a lot less stressful. Getting in there early as far as booking is concerned, will mean that you can take advantage of potential discounts offered for advance bookings. If you are not offered these, then ask as to whether they are ever offered, and suggest that you may go elsewhere if not. It is always worth trying your luck a little with reducing the price in places, as you never know the kinds of savings you can make until you ask. With regards to booking early, you will also be at an advantage in that you will hopefully find that every company that you talk to will be free on your dates. Leaving the booking too late will potentially result in your dates being taken up by other advance bookers, which will throw a huge spanner in the works when it comes to selecting your removals company for their availability rather than your preference.
Only deal with companies in your area. There will be hundreds of removals services in London, but if you are looking for a removals service, then you should only deal with those within a 5 mile radius of your home. This will make the list of potential candidates shorter, as well as reducing the time spent getting to your house on the day of the move, which will speed things up a great deal. Once you have your list of potentials, you can have a look online to see whether any past customers have written any testimonials on how well the companies performed. These reviews sites will give you a great deal of outlook on the quality of customer service and work ethic that your potential removals company will have. Make sure that you read the individual reviews as well as the overall scores that are given, as this will be where the specifics of the move process come in to play, and you will be able to tell whether this company is right for you or not.
Once you have a few companies that you know are good for your job, you can use the information whilst getting quotes to work out who is offering the best value for money on their job. It is again worth haggling a little if you feel like you are being led astray, and letting each company know that you have read reviews on them, and that you are talking to their competitors will give you a great chance of getting a decent quote.
