Moving With The UK Removals Directory

Jul 1, 2008
With so many UK removal and moving companies offering the same services it is not easy to decide on the one that is best for you. To help shed some light on this matter you have to take into consideration a few points.
1. There are companies that will offer a pick up and deliver service, which would mean you would leave you with the responsibility of packing your belongings. You can decide to reduce the cost of your move by doing most or all of the packing yourself. This can be very cost effective if you have the time and the know how. However this is very time consuming and labor intensive and increases the chances of your belongings getting damaged.
2. Second there are UK removal companies that offer full pack and move services. Which as the name suggest, they will plan, supervise and handle every aspect of your move from start to finish. These services are a bit more expensive, but are recommended if you do not have the time to do the packing your self and if you have the budget to match.

When planning your move you must bear in mind how much you are prepared to spend on your move and what you can do to minimize the costs. This can be done by reducing the amount of unnecessary items you take with you to your new house etc. If you intend to store some of your items make sure this is included in your budget. Be prepared to negotiate prices with several movers. See if they will allow you and someone else to help out. This can help to cut the cost of the labor charges thus you will get a reduced pricing. It is a good idea to get up to 5 to 6 moving quotes before you decide on which mover to use.

After weighing up your options you might want to consider using a full service UK Removal Company; it will cost you a little more but it will work out better in your favor in the long run. They will handle all the planning and packing and will free up a lot of your time to arrange other things. Thus increasing the time it will take for you get your life back to normal after your move.

There are two ways of getting free moving quotes. The first one is by calling the companies. The benefit of this way is that you can talk with representatives personally and obtain needed information straight. The second means is submitting a call for quotes online. This method gives you your needed information right away. Once you have about three, four moving quotes you can compare them and choose which company suits you the most.

Although getting moving quotes online is quite a simple method, it has its advantages and disadvantages. If for example you forget to ask for some particular service (e.g. your very heavy item that you want to move), you will end up paying a lot more than you expected. You will also probably not know what exact questions you should ask when submitting a quote online. When that is the case, calling moving companies will turn out to be a better solution. That is the better option not only because you can talk with someone personally but also because they will ask you questions which can help you realize what services you need and focus on what you really require. Another advantage of calling the companies personally is that you can make an appointment and visit the company to learn more about the people you are doing business with?

What is more, UK moving companies should provide you with moving quotes without charging you for this service. You have the right to get your information free so beware of companies which ask you for money in such circumstances and pay attention who you are entrusting with your belongings.
