Or Big Moving Company vs. Man with a van
During our 5 years work in moving houses and apartments, we met load of clients, and its always been interesting to us, how our customers choose the moving company, how they search for it, what criteria they use to find the right moving company for them, and of course what’s better big moving company or local man with a van?
Moving Company – The Search.
Most of the people using recommendations, so if your friends or colleagues at work been moving to new place ask them what company they have used, did they liked the service.
It’s good because you will get all needed information from your friend that means it will be reliable, plus removal companies usually give discounts for recommendations. If none of your friends or colleagues used any moving company, the next thing you can do is of course Google search. When searching for moving company via Google use not only organic search but also, Google maps, because you will be able to find the closest moving company to your place – that means lower price, faster service.
Always check if the moving company has social accounts like Facebook, Google plus so you would be able to see client’s feedback.
If you do not have time for google search and reading all reviews, you can check specialized websites for such service, where you will find most of moving companies just in few moments.
Some websites you could check for moving service:
Most probably you could find much more on the internet, but these are the most used.
First of all you should decide if you are looking for best moving price, or for best service.
At present economic condition, everyone looking for the lowest price possible, but is the lowest price for moving is what you want. Before you use service with the lowest price think if you really want to trust your valuable things to someone you don’t know to someone who charges for moving only 20 eur or even less. For example would you mount china made tires on your new BMW, most probably not, so this is the same, with good price comes better service and guarantees that your belongings will be delivered with no harm. So don’t fall for first lowest price, cause lowest is not always the best.
Normal moving company would be able to offer you wide variety of moving service, like house, apartment moving, single item collection and delivery, piano moves, dumping service ect. Don’t trust the guy who does this as extra activity.
Always ask moving company what kind of transport they have, are the fully equipped for removals. In order to deliver your belongings safe the moving company should have blankets to cover your belongings, trolleys to transport big things to van, ramp to make moving easier, and of course all the straps. If you hired someone who just came with old van and have any of these necessary things for moving most probably, for this guys moving is just something extra, not full time job and he wouldn’t be able guarantee you safe and sound moving.
Most of removal companies declare that they can help you with the moving 24/7, but usually that’s not true especially when under moving company there is only one guy with one van.
So in the very end what is better Big Removal Company or man with a van? Actually that’s quite difficult question, with big moving companies most probably you wouldn’t have any problems with moving as they are prepared for every case, they have loads of vans available for your service, the only problem you can find is the price. The price for the moving with such company is usually huge, in the other hand man with a van is much more cheaper, but at the end of the day you do not know if you will get good service for the low price you paid.
So the solution is to take a look at the middle section of moving companies, the companies that have been in the moving market enough years to have all needed experience, would be able to offer you all moving service, deliver your belongings safe, but still would be small enough to treat every customer as its first, and keep the price low enough to make you happy not only with the move but also with the price.
Such moving companies are able to offer such good price and service balance because they don’t need to take care of 100 employees, pay for huge property they own.
