When it comes to moving house, it’s important to remember that no two moves are the same. Whether you’re moving into your first flat or pricing up a move into a stately family manor, it’s important to take the time to prepare and plan for your move.
If you’re reading this blog post, that means you already understand that moving home is something worth planning for, but did you know that moving is one of the top five most stressful life events?
We might be biased but hiring a Removals Company to carry out your household move is one of the best things you can do to create a seamless, easy move. By pairing with a Removals Company like Doree Bonner International, you immediately hand all the hard work like packing, furniture disassembly, and finding insurance over to the professionals. You’ll also strike up a relationship with a knowledgeable team of Movers and Administrators who can assist you with any queries or concerns.
We’ve created an easy-to-follow list of tips and tricks that will help you choose a Removals Company that’s right for you.
1) Go with a recommendation
Choosing a Removals Company that has been recommended from a friend or family member is a great starting point, making you confident that your chosen company is trustworthy and reputable.
2) Plan in advance
Try to plan your move well in advance. Give yourself at least 4-6 weeks of planning time as this will allow you to make an initial enquiry with a Removals Company and ensure they are available to support you. Even if you don’t have an exact moving date in mind, it is good to start planning as soon as possible so you can ensure your Removals Company is right for you.
3) Use a company approved by the British Association of Removers (BAR)
What is the British Association of Removers or BAR? This organisation has been established for over 100 years, they’re an association dedicated to promoting excellent standards across the Removals Industry. If your Removals Company is an approved BAR member, you can be assured that you’re using a reputable, professional, and most importantly safe remover.
Choosing a BAR member to move your household gives you well needed peace of mind, whether you’re moving in the UK or overseas.
4) Get on with your consultant
The first time you meet your consultant will most likely be via virtual video call or on your property for a quote consultation. When it comes to choosing a Removals Company, we think first impressions always count. Ask yourself how you got on with your consultant. Were all your questions answered? Did they introduce different price options and services? Were any concerns appropriately addressed?
If the answer is yes, then you can progress with your Removals Company knowing that your move has been passed over to safe hands.
5) Ask if you’re unsure
At any stage of your move, you might feel uncertain about your upcoming removal plans. If this is the case, be sure to seek advice from the professional service you have hired. Reputable Removals Companies are here for you and your move and they’ll aim to address your concerns as soon as possible. When it comes to picking the right company for your removal service, no question is too complicated or silly – so make sure you know everything you need to know before making your final decision.
