It is often said that great removals firms make great removals, and this is certainly based on truth, however, as a first time or an inexperienced domestic mover, you will find that it can be difficult to know exactly how to work out if you’re getting a great removals company, simply because it is not clear as to what a good company would do for you as opposed to a less excellent one. Whilst for many it comes down to customer service and the ‘feel’ of the company in how they deal with you, for others it will be useful to get a full run down of the ways in which moving companies help during a removal. Have a look over the following ideas for a few pointers in the work that these firms do. Planning.A good moving service will help you will most questions that you have on the subject of moving house. You will find that this embassy that they can help rather a lot with the planning of your removals, and that is an invaluable part of the process. Planning well is massively important, but if you feel like your plans are more of a stab in the dark than a measured schedule of events, then there is little point in bothering! You will find that a few questions run by a removals company at an early stage will demonstrate how happy they are to lend a hand and help you out. That said, some companies may try to charge for their time over the phone, so clear this up in advance so that you don’t get stung!Packing.Most moving companies offer a packing service, which is great if you are extremely busy. Having an experienced team packing your things can be a massive weight off of your shoulders, and as they are so reliable in what they do, you will know that your belongings will be packed in a way that means that they are not going to get broken easily. The fact of the matter is that many removals companies will not offer you insurance on the contents of the removal unless they have packed the removal boxes for you, which makes sense, as otherwise it would be difficult to differentiate bad packing and bad handling. Loading and transportation.The main bulk of the work that the removals company do will be in the loading of the van and the transportation of the load. This is what people expect of a removals company, and it is indeed the most difficult part of the removal, that few people can manage without the company present. You will find that the experience that a team will have in loading a van safely and handling your heavier items will be invaluable, especially when it comes to getting a triple wardrobe down the stairs! You will find that some companies hire in their staff form agencies on a job by job basis, which means that you could end up with a team made up of people who don’t know each other, and may not have worked on a removal before. This needs to be avoided, as otherwise you will end up in a situation where their inexperience could cost you severely. It is worth talking over such things with the moving firms before you hire them, to ensure that you are completely clear on who is working for you before you get started with the removals process.
