How to choose a good removal company

If you’re moving house, it pays to choose your removal company carefully. After all, you will be entrusting these people with your possessions, and you need to be confident that they will deliver. So, what should you look for in a removal company?

A competent, highly-trained team

Safely and successfully moving lots of items involves a number of skills, from specialist logistics to safe lifting and driving. Look for a professional company that employs and trains its own staff, rather than relying on sub contractors who may not have the same diligence or expertise as in-house professionals.

They should be able to offer you a bespoke service, according to your particular requirements, and apply the correct level of care and attention to your belongings. If team members wear a uniform this is a great sign, too. It shows that the company takes pride in them as members of the team.

A personal service – and quote

If a company doesn’t give you a quote over the phone or online, that is actually a good sign. Every move is different, so expect a good company to send a member of the team to visit your home before giving you an accurate quote.

There are so many things that need to be taken into consideration besides volume – access, travel time, the level of protection needed to keep your items safe and the degree of involvement required from the removals team. The last thing you want is to not receive the service you expected because the quoted cost doesn’t reflect the realities of the situation. So it pays to look for a company that always offers fair, accurate quotes.
