What to ask before you book a house removal service?
Does the company have insurance?
Clarify what type of insurance the company has. The most important are Goods in Transit insurance and Public Liability insurance. Both can help cover you from damages during the house move.
What type of vehicles will be used?
Confirm the vehicle size to arrange and prepare parking space and area for loading and unloading items for your house move.
Are you able to travel in the van?
There is usually one additional spare seat available, so you can technically travel in the van with the removal service. However, this is up to the discretion of the company providing the service.
How many vehicles will be used?
Your removal might be a bigger job than expected, and the company may bring two or even three vehicles to complete your house move.
How many helpers will there be?
Each vehicle will typically have 2-3 helpers depending on the number of items to move.
Do I need a packing service for my move?
Having a professional team that packs everything for you can save you time and headaches during your move. Typically speaking, the time you save on the packing is worth the extra cost. A professional home removal company can pack a 3 bedroom house in around 5 hours while providing all the boxes and materials needed to transport your items safely.
However, you should know that a packing service will pack everything on your property, including rubbish and the items you want to get rid of. The removal company does not know whether there are any valuables items so everything will be packed up and moved just in case. We advise you to discard all items you no longer need before the packing service arrives for your home removal.
