You can get in touch with your house removals company at any time, even if it’s just to get some moving advice and tips on the services they have to offer. When booking a house removals company it’s not as simple as just getting a price.

We always recommend that you book a house removals company 4-6 weeks in advance if this is possible

Within 4-6 weeks of moving house you want to ensure that your move date is confirmed and your house removals company is booked in. This should be the cut off point and you should not leave it too much after this time to find a removals company that’s right for you. As mentioned early it could take time to find a good removal company so start looking for a removals company 2-3 months before moving home.

What To Expect When Booking A House Removals Company When Moving To A New Home

With so much planning and organising that goes in to a house removal, its understandable that timing is every thing when moving home. Your house removals company will need to arrange a visit to your home to discuss your moving requirements and assess all the furniture, belongings and items that need moving. They will assess the property on how the best way to conduct your move. They will also provide you with advice and tips and answer any questions or concerns you may have about the moving process. The home survey process won’t take long (20-30 mins of your time) and is the perfect time to meet your house removals company face to face, where you can decide if they are professional enough, care enough and able to answer and questions and address any issues you may have.

Once your home survey is complete your removal company will then go ahead and forward on a removals quote to you. Your removals quote will be based on your home survey and the volume of furniture and belongings you have to be moved to the new home. So showing your removals company every thing on the home survey is vital in getting a fair and accurate removals quote.

Removal quotes are based on wide range of factors which will be broken down below.

  • Full or part house removal
  • Full or part home packing
  • Dismantling plus assembling
  • Storage facilities
  • How many rooms you have
  • Distance of travel
  • Number of movers and packers required
  • Boxes and packaging materials
  • The layout to the property
  • Any stair involved
