The less stuff you have to move the cheaper the removal will be and the less cluttered your new home will be.

Our house clearance team will take all items and dispose of them at designated, environmentally friendly waste disposal sites.

When considering how to save money when moving house it’s ok to consider low cost house removal firms, but make sure you are hiring a reputable moving company, sometimes the cheapest option is not always the best. It is important to check that your house removal company has a good reputation and are capable of completing your move to the highest standard. Recommendations from friends or family members are always a good idea.  Most house removal companies will always work to a customers budget and needs, so never give up trying to negotiating with them. Be honest and upfront about exactly what you can afford and have to be moved to the new home. Negotiating should not mean that you have to compromise on the quality of the service you receive.

  • Ask friends and family to lend a hand packing and unpacking at your new home.
  • Be sure that all contracts have been exchange and you have the keys to your new property before the removal men arrive at your new home, this will avoid lengthy waiting times and additional charges.
  • Book your move well in advance, many removal companies offer discounts when customers book in advance.
  • If moving a short distance moving a few essentials in the boot of your car can help to keep moving costs low.
  • If you are completing your own packing be sure every thing is taken down, boxed and ready for when the removal men arrive. If things are not ready your moving company may not take it and apply additional waiting charges.
  • If possible avoid moving on Friday’s, as this can be a busy day for removal companies.
