By doing a bit of homework before your big move, it’s possible to experience a far more enjoyable, laid back day, without incurring unnecessary costs. Local removals firm Hadley and Ottaway share their top tips for a stress-free move.
1: Background checks
They say that planning is key, but attention to detail is just as important. When doing your initial research into reputable removal companies, be sure to check what their insurance does and doesn’t cover. This way you won’t have to replace valuable items that have been accidentally damaged during the moving process.
Check online reviews to find out which companies are truly worth their salt. Referenceline is a good port of call.
Finally, when requesting an estimate, ask for someone to visit your home before a quote is offered. When compiling a list for a quote yourself it’s easy to forget something that an estimator wouldn’t miss. This will prevent any additional costs that you aren’t expecting. And don’t forget to ask for an official estimate on paper, it’s always better to be cautious.
