Why You Should Use a Removals Company When Moving House

In this article, we discuss some of the top reasons why you should use a removals company when moving house.

When considering a move to a new home, the financial implications can be daunting.

From stamp duties to solicitors’ fees, the expenses pile up quickly. Often leaving many frantically searching for ways to cut costs.

It is therefore understandable why you may try to save some cash by moving home yourself.

There is no doubt that in certain situations, it makes sense. If you have a very limited number of belongings undertaking a DIY move is the most viable option.

However, a whole house move is a totally different situation.

Larger moves require the help of an experienced professional removals company such as Lund Conlon Removers & Storers.

Even though the prospect of saving money by handling a move independently may be tempting.

In our blog, you will learn that the benefits of utilising a removals company far outweigh the potential cost savings.

Lessen The Strain of Moving

Relocating is perhaps one of the most stressful experiences many of us will go through.

With such an array of different assignments to tick off of your checklist, it can be an extremely daunting task!

You can alleviate much of the stress of the move by choosing a professional removal company to conduct your move.

Once you have picked your removals company, you will have plenty of time to consider all of the other important aspects of moving.

This will not only minimalise the stress of your move but will also help to ensure your belongings are as safe as possible throughout the move.

Expert Experience

Removals companies have a great deal of knowledge and expertise when it comes to moving houses.

When you select a removals company, you can be sure that they have experience. They have moved nearly every household item you can imagine.

Most people who decide to move on their own quickly find out that it is not as straightforward as it first appears. It is back breaking, time consuming work.

Removals companies have a plethora of knowledge and provide customers with an experienced service.

You will be guaranteed that your chosen removal company are totally qualified for the toughest of house moves.

Bigger objects including any large furnishings you may have are often the most difficult items to move.

Professional removals companies have experience moving belongings like these on a daily basis.

By employing a professional removals company, much of the pressure that comes with relocating is reduced.

This will go a long way to making the whole process considerably easier.

Set of boxes

Booking a Pre-Move Survey

When you have sold your property, you are ready to move to the next step.

Here again, using a removals company provides even more benefits.

A pre-move survey will be carried out. This involves a surveyor visiting your home in person, or via an online video survey (a little more about video surveys later in our blog).

The role of a removal surveyor is to assess the specifics of your move.

This includes the amount of packing materials needed, the size and type of items to be transported, access to the property, and any special requirements.

Any potential risks or obstacles that may arise during the moving process are assessed. Narrow doorways, staircases, or fragile items requiring special handling will be identified.

Building a customised moving plan that optimises efficiency and minimises potential challenges means there are no nasty surprises on move day.

By conducting a thorough survey, the removal surveyor can provide an accurate cost estimate for the moving service.

All this information is used to calculate the cost of your move.

Timing is Important

Time is of the essence when moving. A professional removals company understands the importance of time efficiency.

You are most likely involved in a chain of others also having to move on the same day. Getting packed and out in a timely fashion is imperative.

The last thing you want is the pressure of having the new owners waiting for hours outside your old property for you to vacate.

A removal company, with their experience and streamlined processes, can expedite the moving process, saving you valuable time and energy (and not a little embarrassment)!

Professional Packing Service

One of the primary concerns during a move is the safety of your possessions.

Experienced removals companies take every step to ensure all your belongings in your move are thoroughly protected.

No need to beg, borrow, or buy any packing materials. The cost of these will be included in the calculation of your move quotation.

These materials include double-thickness cartons, specialist wrap for glassware and crockery, bubble wrap is used on larger items and furniture. Where necessary, custom wooden crates are made for more unique, fragile items.

Whether your move is local, across the UK or abroad, quality packing materials will greatly reduce the likelihood of items being damaged during transit.

The role of a removals company is to transport your belongings from your existing home to your new one as quickly and as safely as possible. It is as simple as that.


Insurance are you covered

Importance of Insurance

Insurance is one of the biggest factors in any house move.

If you are planning to move by yourself you will need to ensure your own insurance covers your belongings.

Most comprehensive house insurance will protect some of your items. The majority of insurance is unlikely to cover your items during the transport period between your old and new home.

The ideal method of protecting your belongings is by employing the services of a professional removals company.

Your removals company will offer you insurance coverage to protect you in the case that anything goes awry.

Removals companies typically present you with standard liability insurance, with added coverage being offered for objects that may require additional protection.

Video Surveys

Virtual Video Surveys

There are an increasing number of benefits that come with using a removals company. Perhaps the most recent of these benefits are video surveys.

Virtual video surveys are a new tool that lets companies conduct house surveys online.

These surveys can help gather the essential details of your move, all completely remotely!

In recent years, Coronavirus has had a huge impact on the ways companies interact with customers and it is no different in the removals sector!

Selecting a removals company that provide virtual video surveys will reduce any physical contact with people. Safeguarding you and any individuals living in your home.

Virtual video surveys are now a vital tool for removals companies.

The technology has become an everyday tool. It has become increasing popular with customers as it negates having to have time off work to be home for a survey.

Be sure to find out if your chosen removals company are conducting virtual video surveys.

Assistance With Organising the Move

Perhaps the toughest element of relocating is understanding where to begin!

If you choose to perform your house move by yourself, there are numerous tricky items you will need to organise.

Things like arranging a vehicle to transport your belongings can make the move feel like a daunting task.

By choosing a professional removals company, you will have ample assistance with these factors.

Your chosen removals company will not only conduct the move they will also provide you with a wealth of knowledge that is sure to help with your overall move!

Removals companies are capable of providing you with advice on all aspects of relocating.

Ranging from the best ways to tackle your packing to advising you on all the vital things you may wish to have on the big day.

Once you have selected your professional removals company feel free to ask them anything you like.

Their years of experience is sure to come in handy and they will be pleased to assist you in any way they can.
