Moving is stressful. There is a lot to think about and do. Choosing the right removalists for your move is one of the most important things you’ll need to do. These guys should know a thing or two about moving – and you will have to trust them with your belongings. Basically, you are going to have a bad time if you go with some duds. So, here are some tips on how to avoid that fate and choose the best removalists for your move.
Do your research
This is something you are already doing: researching resources online and reading reviews. But it goes a little deeper than that. If possible, get personal recommendations and learn as much as you can about the companies that are on your radar. A quick Google search will turn up previous experiences or complaints about each company. This is all useful information that you can use to make your decision.
Consider their experience
Look at the websites, social media and other resources of the companies you are considering to get an idea of how long they have been in business and what their areas of expertise are. It is important to choose a company that has experience with the type of move you are making. For example, if you need to move a piano, look for a company that specializes in pianos or has successfully moved one before.
Check their credentials
You want to make sure that the company is legitimate and that their employees are trained professionals. The last thing you want is some amateurs coming in and damaging your belongings. Ask to see their licenses and insurance information. This will give you some peace of mind knowing that they are experts in the field.
Look for red flags
When looking at customer reviews, be sure to look for any red flags that may indicate a problem. These can include things like damaged goods, late deliveries, unprofessional staff, etc. If you see too many of these complaints, it is probably best to look elsewhere.
Get multiple quotes
This is always a good idea when hiring any type of service. Get at least three quotes from different companies before making your decision. This will help you to get the best price possible – and do not go with the cheapest unless you feel confident that they are also the best.
Do they do storage?
If you are moving temporarily into a smaller place or your new home cannot fit all of your belongings, a removalist that also offers storage services might be the best solution. This way you do not have to worry about finding a separate storage facility and paying for that as well.
