Whether you are making a move across county lines, to a different country, or even just down the street, you will need the services of a reliable moving company.
Through the process of looking for the right movers, it does help to start by assessing your home/business moving requirements. The next step is to get recommendations for national removals firms or get online and find some.
Choosing A Moving Firm
More than likely, you have a family member or friend who has used the services of a removals company, and they can recommend one. Otherwise, you can get online to search for moving businesses located near you.
When settling on a moving company, make sure that they can meet all your removals requirements and check their online reviews to get feedback about their services.
What To Expect From A National Removals Firm
Regardless of your specific moving needs, a reputable and reliable removals business will offer the following services:
The removals company should let you know about the full list of services they offer. Knowing the particular services the business provides will allow you to decide whether or not they are the right moving company for you.
Give you an open and fair quote in writing indicating every cost related to the removals process.
The removals company should also provide a non-biased list of references who you can get in touch with for feedback about their services.
A good removals company should answer any questions you have about the movement process. Their communication with you should be responsive, polite, and timely.
Conduct a home / business movement assessment / survey and give you sound advice about your particular moving needs. The assessment also offers an opportunity to inquire further about their services as well as the movement process in general. Also, after the check, the moving business should give you a final quote for their services.
The removals firm should offer full disclosure regarding the type of vehicles they will use during the move, the extent of the transit insurance they offer, and their delays policy.
The removals company should also give you a list of contact numbers for the porters who will conduct the actual move on your moving day.
Last but not least, good national removals firms will offer some form of ‘after-sales’ services. Whether it is simply follow-ups to find out what your experience was working with the company and ask you to provide reviews about their services if everything went well.
