Whether you are moving just around the corner, across the country or to another part of Wales, there is one thing you want to be sure of. You want to ensure you choose a reliable removal company that is going to take care of your items and get them to your new home in the same condition that they left.
The problem is when it comes to finding a removals Swansea, there are so many to choose from. There are your large international companies to local companies to man and van options, all of which are promising to provide you with a service that you can rely on and trust. So how do you decide? How do you choose one removal company to manage your move effectively while you enjoy complete peace of mind?
It is important that any company you choose gives you a feeling of complete confidence. If you feel uneasy about the move in any way, then not being comfortable and confident when it comes to your removals company is only going to add more pressure to the experience. Moving home or office is already such a stressful experience and the company you choose should try and make the move easy and seamless, reducing the stress and helping you get through the move that little bit easier.
Ensure you meet the company before you make any final decisions. Get them to come in and give you a written quote for your move. This is an opportunity to see what they are like and to ensure they promote a professional image. A good test is to make an appointment and see what time they arrive. Do they arrive on time? Are they early? Do they arrive late? This can also help you get an idea on their reliability for moving day.
Look at the services provided by the removals company. Do they simply arrive, collect your items, pack them in a truck and take them to their destination or do they offer more than just a simple removals solution? You should choose a company that provides you with the added convenience of a packing service, furniture handling, joinery and more. They may even be able to assist you with rebuilding your furniture on the other side, helping you with plumbing and electrical and ensure that you enjoy a seamless move that is quick, effective and completely hassle-free.
Always pay close attention to the reviews you find online for the removals company. Don’t rely only on the reviews from their website, focus on independent review sites and online forums, giving you honest feedback from past and present customers and helping you to identify which removals company is the best match to move your home.
Take the time to ensure you are aware of how much experience the company has. One of the best tests is to identify if they are available for a short notice move, if they are, this should be a concern. Most removal companies require that you book at least a few weeks in advance. Any company that is available on short notice is one that should raise a red flag.
Ensure the removal company you have chosen is available on your moving day. Discuss a time with them and get your confirmation in writing. Some companies may require a deposit for the move, ensure this is paid in time to reduce the risk of losing your time slot, especially if you want the move early in the morning, so you can get unpacked on the other side and get your home in order before returning to work.
