There are many moving companies in the UK, but how do you find the right one for you.  One who understands the complexity of the move, who fits within your budget, and who will go above and beyond to take the stress and effort away from you. 

Here are five key questions to ask when searching for the best UK moving company for you:

1. How long have they been in business?

You don’t want to choose a fly by night company, which offers little comfort when knowing that your assets are in good care. The best moving company for you, will be one which has been in business for many years and holds a demonstrable track record of quality service standards and delivery.

2. Is the moving company reliable and reputable?

Ask about their certifications and accreditations. Have they been certified by and are they affiliated with the right organisations, such as FIDI, FAIM, FHIO, The Movers Trading Club or BAR, the British Association of Removers, a true endorsement of their high-quality standards for international moving and relocation services.

3. Will they give you an accurate price assessment? 

Make sure you choose a company which offers a free, no obligation survey which gives you the opportunity to discuss your individual removal requirements and ask any questions. In this way you can ensure that the price you receive is tailored and cost effective. Also make sure to you receive a written quotation of services, so you can be assured of no hidden costs. If you need storage services, choose a storage company which bases its prices on the volume you use, meaning you won’t pay unnecessary charges for any unused storage space.

4. Does the moving company offer insurance? 

It’s important to ensure that the moving company you select offers a range of insurance cover options to suit your needs and protect against any unexpected eventualities.

5. Can they supply moving company references?

It’s always important to seek references from customers, helping you make a more informed choice. Companies which use Trustpilot, for example, collect feedback as a matter of course. So check these references and make sure that their service is as good as their promise.
