What Services Do You Need For Your House Move?

There are lots of things to worry about when it comes to moving house and hiring the help of a professional removals company is a great way to cut-down on unnecessary stress. However, most removal companies now offer a range of different services, and it can be difficult to know exactly what you need for your move. You might find yourself overwhelmed and saying yes to all the services offered to you – but do you really need them? If you’ve never moved house or if you’ve never used a removal service before then have a look at this helpful guide to give you all the advice you need for picking the right removal services for you. Do I need a removal vehicle?Hiring a removal van can make your move a lot easier and definitely a lot faster, but hiring a removal van depends on what you want to move. Some people are lucky enough to have access to a van, which means they can easily move furniture and boxes with the help of friends and family, but sometimes it’s necessary to hire a vehicle. Hiring a removal van is perfect if you have a lot of bulky appliances or large furniture, but it might not be such a good idea if you’re only moving boxes and bags. Make a list of everything you’re taking to your new property and try to calculate how many trips will be needed in a small car and how much this might cost you in comparison to hiring a van for the day. Do I need a man with a van?A man with a van can make sure you have all the help you need on moving day. An experienced mover can help you out with tips and advice, you won’t have to worry about transportation and you’ll also have a strong pair of hands to help you with any heavy-lifting you might have. If you have lots of friends and family to help you out, you might not need the help of a man with a van, but if you know you’ll struggle to move your sofa, table or bookcases then this is definitely a service that could benefit you! Do I need to buy packing materials?Packing materials such as removal boxes and packing peanuts can be costly, but if you accidentally break your television or computer monitor on moving day then this could end up costing you a lot more! Some removal companies will discount your packing materials if you’re hiring a service from them, so try speaking to a few companies to see if they offer this. If you choose to use second-hand packing materials then make sure they’re well-enforced to ensure that they aren’t going to break on moving day! How many movers do I need?The number of movers you need depends mostly on the size of your property and how much you have to move. A team of movers can get the job done quickly and efficiently, but if you’re moving from a small flat to a small house then this could be a waste of your money! A good and reliable removals company should be able to advise you on how many movers you’re going to need, but make sure that you aren’t being overcharged for staff that you don’t necessarily need!
