In this blog you will find all needed information about removal companies, furniture deliveries, and much more...
Removal hire services can vary in price; some companies offer reasonably low quotes whereas others may offer a much more expensive one. There are varying factors to consider when determining what is reasonable and what is extremely pricey, things such where you live and what services you require are part of it but oftentimes it may be a case of company preference and what they feel is a reasonable quote to offer their customers.
People assume that you get what you pay for, and if you go cheap you should expect a shoddy job or vice versa, this can often be the case but it shouldn’t be the determining factor to consider when looking for removals because it could mean that you only source those who offer higher quotes in the hope that you will be getting a better service. Bear in mind that there will always be cowboys out there who are looking to make money over anything else and try not fall victim to that. Remaining vigilant and doing a little research prior to booking may help to avoid falling victim to any such scenario.
Shop around a little before you buy!
It could be the single most important thing you do; those who take time to do a little research are less likely to make the wrong decision. This doesn’t have take too much time, a little online research and social network browsing may be all that you need to do, or you could go for the good old fashioned approach and ask others who they would recommend.
Top tip Beware of man and van hire that is offering fast, reliable and friendly services because that tends to be a standing quote for all however unfortunately not always the case for all so look beyond eye opening quotes that aim to please and delve deeper into the reality of the services they offer by doing your research first.
How to save removal costs!
Of course aside from hiring the right company there are plenty other things that you can do to help reduce removal cost too,
Let’s take a look:
•Shop for quotes first, gain as many as you can an go back putting your haggling skills to the test, it may not be for everyone but it’s certainly worth a shot if your desperate for a deal.
•Be aware of hidden costs, you should be getting what you pay for and you should know exactly what that is, look through the small print and check that there are no hidden costs which could be slapped onto the bill later.
•Ask around to see what services others have got and what they have paid for those services.
•Ask for cheaper rate days and times as sometimes some companies offer lower rates at certain times or on certain days.
•Do more work yourself and use the man with a van for a lesser proportion of the move, such as you could get extra helping hands from family and friends and hire less movers and use cares to load smaller boxes to cut journey times down to one straight run there and back.
Would it be cheaper to not use them at all?
This may be a case or personal circumstance and whether or not you have access to a removal van?
Also do you have a reliable team of movers on hand, and who will not let you down on removal day?
If the answer to those two questions above is no then your best bet is to opt for hiring a removal company instead as it may end up being extremely stressful to try anything else otherwise. You have to bear in mind that removal services are not that expensive and many companies offer a wide range of services which could bulk up prices if you decide to use them, but they are not a necessity, you don’t have to use them and cheaper services are usually available also.
