  • Provide information on accessibility. Remember that additional costs may apply if the removal involves hauling up or down stairwells, elevators or lifts. If you live in a narrow street is there access for a large moving vehicle or will the Removal Company need multiple small trucks to remove your personal belongings?

  • Do not choose a company simply because they have the cheapest estimate. Remember that whoever is operating your removal will be in charge of shipping your most valued and cherished belongings. The peace of mind that knowing that your shipment will be safe is often worth paying extra for.

The summer months are generally the busiest period for Relocation Companies. Nevertheless, the relocation should be arranged at a time most suitable to you.

Each move is different and so a precise estimation is very difficult to access. The amount you are moving, distances involved between collection and destination points as well as the time of day, weather conditions etc...can all have an effect on the duration of the removal. A removal specialist within each of your chosen companies should be able to provide you with a close approximation.

10. Should I pack my own belongings?

  • This is a personal decision. A packing service may incur an extra charge but it also helps to take some of the anxiety out of your move. A professional packing team will have access to specialised protective packing equipment that will ensure that your goods arrive in the same condition that they left in.
  • Beware that unless packed by a professional mover your goods might not be eligible for moving insurance. Breakages or damages caused by the move would therefore be your responsibility. Ask a moving representative within your chosen company for more information.

  • If you are not at the new premises to accept the goods the removal company may place them into storage until you can be contacted or available to sign for them in person- be aware this additional storage will incur charges.
