Removal nightmares – what could possibly go wrong?

It’s no secret that moving house is expensive. From paying solicitors, surveyors, builders and estate agents to buying new furniture and redecorating, upsizing or downsizing can put a serious strain on your finances.

As a result, it can be all too tempting to go with the lowest removal quote you get, or even to do the work yourself. And though you may think moving is easy – after all, it’s just packing, shifting and unpacking isn’t it? – you’d be surprised by the number of things that can go seriously wrong.

Damaged goods

If you hire a cheap, unprofessional man with a van, there’s a very good chance that your precious belongings won’t arrive at your new home in one piece. Poor packing can result in serious damage to crockery, ornaments and other fragile objects and carelessly handled boxes an cause their contents to rattle around, crack and chip.

Packing up a home is an art, and a good house removals service will take time and care packaging up your ornaments, photos and other precious objects in order to ensure they’re not damaged in transit. To make sure you’re completely covered in case of an accident, choose a company like ours with full transit insurance cover.

Damage to your property

Transporting large objects, like wardrobes, beds, cupboards and dining tables, out of one property and into another takes time and care. A cheap or inexperienced man with a van could easily cause chips, scratches and scuffs to your new home or to the property you’re leaving behind.

Not enough room in the van

Believe it or not, some companies turn up at a house removal with a van that’s not big enough to transport the contents of the property. A good quality company, on the other hand, will be able to accurately assess the size of the van required and ensure there’s plenty of space for everything – including the kitchen sink if necessary.

Demanding extra money

One of the most common complaints from customers who use cheap house removal services is that the company quotes a cheap price but then demands more money during or after the removal.

By opting for a slightly more expensive quote, you can avoid any unexpected extra costs, giving you peace of mind that the price you’re quoted is the price you’ll pay. A more professional company won’t just provide you with a man and van service, but a gentleman and van service, ensuring that all of your belongings arrive in one piece, on time and on budget.
