An incredible amount of stress is associated with moving house. There are so many things to organize and plan for – from packing up to transporting them safely to your new home. Having to deal with estate agents, solicitors, and mortgage advisors can be stressful. It’s no wonder that moving is ranked as one of life’s most stressful events! 

Packing made easy

Packing everything up ready for the move is time-consuming and often frustrating. Trying to find all the boxes, tape, and packaging materials you need can be challenging. And if you pack items the wrong way, they could get damaged in transit.  Professional removal teams will provide all the packaging materials you need. Their experts will pack items securely and efficiently. All you need to do is point to what needs packing and they’ll handle the rest!

Secure storage options

If you’re moving to a smaller apartment, or renting somewhere short-term before buying, you may need storage for some belongings. Rather than cramming items into your garage or asking friends, use secure self-storage. removal and storage companies offer storage facilities with 24-hour security. You choose between convenient indoor units or more affordable outdoor containers. And you access your belongings anytime with just an hour’s notice. Storage takes the stress out of downsizing or renting between moves.

Careful loading and transport

Lifting heavy furniture and fragile items into a van is tough work and things are likely to get broken or scratched. Professional removal teams use specialist equipment like trolleys, lifts, and blankets to load smoothly and safely. The removal vans are designed specifically for transporting households. So you don’t have to worry about your belongings getting damaged on the journey. The drivers are experts at navigating tricky access and tight spaces when unloading.

Cleaning and disposal duties 

When the van arrives at your new home, the removal team won’t just dump the boxes and drive off. They’ll place all the furniture for you in the rooms you want. Remove any leftover boxes and packaging so you won’t end up with a mess. Some removal services even offer a waste disposal service. They will safely get rid of any items you no longer need or want saving you trips to the rubbish tip.

Insurance protection and support

Despite the best efforts of removal teams, accidents occasionally happen, and items get lost or broken. Professional removal firms offer full insurance covering your belongings while packing, in transit, and unloading.  So if the worst does happen, you’ll get compensation. The company will also handle the insurance claim process for you taking away the hassle.

Choosing a removal company

With so many removal firms to pick from, how do you choose? Here are a few tips for selecting the best service:

  1. Look for recommendations from friends who have moved recently or check review sites.
  2. Make sure they are fully licensed and insured. Ask to see the documentation. 
  3. Get in-home estimates from a few companies so you compare pricing.  
  4. Read the small print – check what’s included and excluded from the quote.
  5. Enquire about their storage facilities if you need them. 
  6. Choose a company that’s been operating locally for a long time.
