This often starts months before the actual moving day where you will spend quite a large proportion of your time going through your possessions and cramming them all into as few boxes as possible.
To streamline everything on the day and to take a little bit of the stress away, it is well worth hiring a moving company who have done this thousands of times before and know all the tricks of the trade to ensure a smooth running day.
But what should you expect from your moving company? When you initially approach moving companies, there are a number of questions they are likely to of ask you, not in regard to where you are moving to and from but also what they need to move - these two pieces of information enable them to put together a quote for your move.
Sometimes firms will ask for a list of number of boxes and furniture they are going to have to transport.
There are a number of different services moving companies offer, below are a few examples: • Single room or entire property move Most moving companies will just vacate and move one room for you - this can be especially useful if you are a business who are thinking of moving premises • Full packing and unpacking service Often the packing and unpacking stage of a move is described as the most stressful and really can take a significant amount of time.
Moving companies are used to working for busy people and this is why full packing and unpacking services have been developed - you can land in your new home only remembering to turn the other way on the way out of work.
• Packaging Although it sounds a little bit daft, finding actual packaging to place your possessions in can be actually quite difficult - especially reams of tissue paper to keep those all your fragile oddments in one piece.
Instead of scraping around for boxes your local moving company will most definitely be able to supply you with some • Short and long distance If you are moving a very long distance it is likely you are going to have to find a specialist removal company - especially if it is overseas.
However, it is very likely that they will be able to offer exactly the same services as those who can help you move just around the corner.
Before setting your moving company in stone, doing a little bit of market research is recommended, looking at reviews or going on suggestions from people you know is really beneficial.
With this research and a good reputable moving company your relocation should go swimmingly.
