Moving house is hard. Hard on parents, hard on kids, hard on grandparents. Hard on everyone. Any help you can get is so invaluable at such a tiring, demanding and stressful time.
Moving home is rated as one of the single most stressful life events, after divorce and childbirth (so you know what you’ve got to try next!) and as such, doing it with as much assistance as you can get is a must.
We spoke to Bristol removal company I Move Removals about how to find the right local removals company for your residential or commercial move.
If you’re one of those people who moves around frequently, maybe for your job, and you’re used to moving, you can look at doing it on an absolute shoestring budget, but if this is only your first or second ever big move, then you need to look at getting some serious help in, because mistakes made at this stage can cause major problems, hassles and cost for you later on, which no one wants.
What’s the point of using a removals company? Well, depending on how far you’re moving, how many possessions you’re shifting, and whether or not you’re staying in temporary rented accommodation and using a storage facility, using a great removals firm can be a very quick, convenient way to make an awkward situation easier, all the while being not much more difficult than having a quick conversation.
A great removals firm will handle all the awkward logistics, and make all those irritating little problems go away, they’re the convenient option.
Most Important is Trust
Garnering trust with a faceless company can be difficult, but once you’ve spoken to and met several staff, and seen other satisfied customers, you will find it easy to see the right company for you. You can’t be handing over all your stuff to a company you have any doubts about. You essentially need to find a great quality, great value removal firm that you can trust entirely. We can’t overstate the fact that one point, you will be trusting this firm with the vast majority of your worldly possessions, and as such you need to trust them. Trust comes down to a variety of other points, such as the company’s guarantees, their quality of staff and their training, and most importantly, the quality of reviews on the company.
Going online and reading through a variety of unbiased reviews can be a great way to evaluate the trustworthiness and reliability of a company. Make sure you’re reading unbiased reviews though, and not the ones the company themselves is presenting, as they’re not going to tell you if they’re not that reliable or great!
Find the right removals company, because there are lots of different removals companies are out there, and there’s bound to be variances in what they offer. There will be a great variance in price, quality and value, and it’s up to you to find the best option for your move. Comparing quotes from multiple firms is always going to be the best option for getting the cheapest and best value service. You always want to avoid going for the very cheapest firm, unless you particularly enjoy the prospect of your precious belongings, housed in simple cardboard boxes, being manhandled by undertrained, pressured staff. If you’re something of a gambler, then maybe that’s the route to go for you, but for everyone else, who needs that worry when moving?
Get Their Guarantee
A lot can rest on guarantees, so make sure you check out the guarantees the removal firm offers. The quality and confidence of the guarantees offered can really say a lot about the quality of the service that you can expect to receive. A company with thousands of satisfied customers and successful moves under their belt is going to be able to say with some confidence that they WILL get your possessions where you need them to be, and in great time too! And all at a great price! If you detect doubt and uncertainty, keep shopping, you want the confidence and certainty. However, remember not to be too taken by great sales technique, examine all the other elements of the company too.
