Finding removal services that you trust can be time consuming, but it is so important to take your time and make sure you hire a reputable mover. By having a reliable and professional moving company carry out your house removal, you can save yourself from a lot of stress and worry. Let the experts do the hard work for you – they know what they’re doing! So, how do you go about finding removal services?
Get a recommendation from family or friends
This is a great way to find a trustworthy mover! By asking people you know about their moving experience, you are getting first-hand information about who to select as you mover – or who to avoid.
If you don’t have anyone close to you that carried out a house removal recently, another option is to turn to social media. Facebook or Twitter are great places to reach out to your social network and ask for recommendations of removal services. You may even find helpful pages of moving company reviews that could assist you with your search.
Search google for a removal company near you
Another great place to begin your search is online. By searching for ‘removal services’, ‘international moving companies’, ‘house movers’ or ‘removal companies near me’, you can find top-reviewed companies near you who can carry out your house removal.
On Google, you should also be able to read reviews on different removal companies. This will give you a good idea of who is a reliable mover and who isn’t. Check out company websites to see what services they offer before requesting quotes.
Use a removal services finder site
There are several ‘middle-man’ websites that will ask for the details of your move and pass your requirements onto trusted removal companies within their network. The movers will then contact you directly with a quote for your move and you can compare them to see which mover offers you the best service for the best price.
Companies like Sirelo can connect you with up to five removal companies for free by filling out their online form. It is an excellent way to save yourself time and money on your move but, of course, you need to do some research for yourself. It is important to read the reviews of any company who sends you a quote before hiring their service as price does not always guarantee quality.
Check out local directories
By searching local directories, you can find removal services in your area. When looking up directories we recommend checking out the following:
Scoot: Scoot.co.uk is an online search directory you can use to find removal services near you. All you have to do is type in “removal services” and enter your location, and Scoot will provide you with plenty of removal companies in your vicinity. You can visit each company’s website and read reviews left on Scoot before you decide which company you would like to work with.
Yell: Yell.com is the UK’s leading online business directory. Here you can find removal companies in your area and get information about the services they offer. You should also find a link to their website so you can find out more about the company and read their reviews.
UK small business directory: Uksmallbusinessdirectory.co.uk is another online directory option that can help you find removal services you can use. By clicking ‘category search’ and typing in removal services, this directory will provide you lots of removal companies near you who can facilitate your moving requirements.
What you need to consider before choosing a removal company
After you have found removal companies who may be able to facilitate your move, your next step is to request quotes. Before hiring a mover, consider the following:
- Do they provide all the removal services you need?
- Can they facilitate your move from your current location to your destination?
- Are they part of a reputable moving association and have the proper credentials?
- Do they have good reviews and provide excellent customer service?
- Can they answer your moving queries in a clear and efficient manner?
When you request quotes from different removal companies, be sure to ask if there are any extra fees or deposits involved with your move, and what insurances and refund policies they have should something go wrong. If you have found a company who ticks all the boxes, you are sure to have a smooth and safe house removal!
