But there is a way to make sure that moving day itself doesn’t end up this way, and that’s choosing to work with a removals company who will go above and beyond to make sure everything runs to clockwork. That way, you can focus your attention on settling into your new home, and celebrating a successful move.
Let’s take a closer look at the advantages of using a professional home removal company.
1. Saves you time and hassle
It can be tempting to try to make the move yourself but it’s rarely a good idea. It doesn’t usually work out cheaper either, once you’ve factored in van hire, fuel, packing and all the necessary insurance.
Entrusting your belongings to professionals will give you peace of mind that they’ll arrive at your new home in the same condition they left in, and will also free you up on moving day to deal with other things, like collecting the keys to your new home.
2. You can store items you don’t want to move right now
Your moving timetable not quite running to plan? Got too much stuff that you don’t know what to do with?
Downsizing with less space for furniture? There are many reasons self-storage can be handy during a house move, and it’s especially useful to choose a company that offers both removals and storage, like Spire. That way you can streamline the process and make it even easier for yourself.
3. You don’t have to pack up your stuff yourself
Don’t underestimate the time and resources involved in packing up your home, especially if you have fragile, high-value or unique items. Why give up days of your life to do it yourself when you could have a team of professionals do a better job in half the time?
Spire’s packing specialists know exactly how to pack your items with all the protection they need to stay safe in transit, and they can provide the materials you need too.
4. Insurance will be taken care of
Insurance may be a little boring, but it’s essential.
Working with a fully licensed and insured company with Spire means you don’t have to worry about it though, as they will ensure that your items are covered during every stage of your house move: during packing, loading, transit, unloading and unpacking at the other end.
And you’ll get a copy of all the paperwork too, so you know what’s what.
5. International or long-distance moves are made easy
If you’re moving a large distance, it’s especially important to go with a reputable company who have plenty of experience in international removals. For example, Spire will manage the entire process for you, ensuring that your items get from A to B safely and legally.
Moving overseas is complex, with plenty of room for error, but Spire’s experts will make sure everything is taken care of, from customs documentation, to load inventories and ensuring that all vehicles comply with international road laws.
