There are a ton of London removal companies out there. Obviously, some of them are going to be far better than others at what they do. This is why we have put together this guide. We want to help you to find the right London removals company.
First and foremost, you are going to need to think about the following things:
- Whether this is a commercial or residential move
- How far you are moving. Remember, not all companies are going to help you move outside of London! If you are moving within London, then most of the companies that you find should be fine to work with.
Once you have that information to hand, you can head online and start researching London removal companies. There will be quite a few of them to choose from. Make sure that they are able to do what you want.
When you are searching for a London removal company, you will want to check that they have been in business for a while. It is fair to say that anybody could rent a lorry and help somebody move. However, not everybody is capable of being a removal company. You will be surprised at how much planning has to go into even the most basic of moves. If a company has been in business for a few years, then it is likely that they are going to be good at what they do. You may even find a few testimonials on their website.
It is important to check whether the London removal company has insurance or not. If they do not have insurance, then avoid them. Sure, the chances of something going wrong are slim. However, can you really take that risk?
In order to narrow your list down further, you may want to read through as many reviews online as you possibly can. Remember, people are more likely to leave negative reviews online for a company. Therefore, don’t take them completely at face value. Obviously, if a company has an overwhelming number of negative reviews about one particular issue then you are probably going to want to avoid them. However, if there is a healthy balance of both negative and positive reviews, then the company should not be completely ruled out.
Finally, get in touch with the London removal companies that you have selected and ask for some quotes. The best London removal companies will actually come to your home (or place of business) and look at what they have to deal with.
Don’t forget that removal companies may charge extra for:
- Putting the furniture into boxes and removing it from boxes
- Parking in the area that you are moving to.
When you are talking to the company, you should also get an idea as to how easy they are going to be to work with. You only want to work with a company which you can gel with. It will make the process a whole lot smoother.
