Moving Companies: Tracking your Way to the Right Removal Service

Moving Companies: Tracking your Way to the Right Removal Service

08 September 2014

Removal companies are such a great asset when you’re taking on a removal. They will spare the stresses that are associated with a typical move. All of the heavy lifting, loading and all the other muscle numbing jobs will be taken care of with the care and attention that you would expect from a premium and professional service. And, thanks to properly trained staff and well maintained van fleets, you can also be sure that your move will happen on time, and all of your goods will stay in one piece. Reliable and dependable are two of the most appropriate verbs associated with a proper moving company.

So, how do you go about finding the right removal service for you? First, you’ve got to work out which type of removal company is the best fit for your move. After all, there are different types and sizes of moves, so it would make sense that there’s a removal company that is best suited for each. When it comes to home removal, the three types to consider are; courier services, professional removal services, and man and van companies.

For small moves, courier services are the best fit. Courier services are basically postal services, which means that your move will be taken care of by one person. That means that your move will have to be pretty small to make this type of service cost effective – one, two or three boxes are what I would recommend as the limit. They might not seem that practical, but they’re inexpensive and offer fast delivery, which make them perfect fits for first time movers, student moves or for those moving into an already furnished apartment.

Professional moving companies; the moving type that’s specifically designed for the job. You’ll be hiring one well maintained van, and a large group of staff who will take on all of the jobs I mentioned earlier; heavy lifting, loading and transportation. All of these jobs will be handled with professionalism and with great efficiency. And in the case that something goes wrong, full insurance cover normally comes as standard. Professional moving companies are the most expensive of the three options, but offer the most secure and complete moving service. I would recommend this company to those undertaking a large move, and for those who have a large budget.

I would describe man and van companies as a mixture of the above two options. It has the same framework as a professional mover; a properly maintained van with all of the same carrying capacity, but it’s usually handled by one (sometimes two or three) man. You can expect the same services as the professional mover, but due to the smaller amount of staff, you can expect the process to be slightly slower. But because of the smaller amount of staff, you can also expect to pay a lot less for the privilege. Medium sized moves, or small moves that require some furniture to be moved should definitely consider this removal type.

Once you’ve figured out which type of move you’ll be going for, you can start hunting for the company that’s the right fit for you. What’s the best way to start? Look around for advice. If you know someone who knows someone who’s moved recently, find out what company they used and whether they would recommend it. Consider reading removal reviews, too. Take a broad outlook, look at the pros and cons that each review lists, and make your decision based on that.

The right removal company for you is out there, it just takes a little bit of common sense and research to find it. As long as you take everything into account, like additional services, quality of service and price, you’ll find the company that’ll make your move a complete breeze.
