Moving home is complicated enough without having to worry about the furniture removals company you choose. But how do you know that you have hired the best movers in town? Long distance moves require that you compare a number of companies to ensure that you hire the best furniture removals companies.
Here's what you should look for in a furniture removals company:
The Moving Crew
A professional furniture removals company will employ permanent workers, rather than hiring guys off the street at a low daily wage.
Each driver should be equipped with his own cell phone to ensure that you can get in touch at all times.
The crew should be trained to provide quality, safe moving services. They should be able to move heavy, awkward or valuable items without causing damage to walls, floors and to the items they are moving.
Professional furniture removal companies have roadworthy, closed trucks.
They will also have packaging materials, wraps, covers and protective materials to ensure all your items, large and small are protected during the move.
Some moves require specialist tools to fetch and carry items safely, or to bring odd-shaped items into small spaces.
The company should provide a clear estimate that shows you how you are charged, based on your requirements. What is including in the estimate and what will you have to pay extra for?
Customer testimonials will give you an idea about whether the company is punctual and whether they are reliable. This is very important to know, as it will affect your arrival time at the new house.
Professional companies allow the trucks to only stop at national truck stops, which ensures the safety of your load.
You may need additional, specialised moving services. Be sure to include these services in your quotation request:
- Insurance cover
- Pet relocations
- Motor vehicle transportation
- Wrapping, packing and crating
While bearing all these issues in mind, be sure to ask the company all the questions that may affect your move. A reputable company will be happy to provide you with all the answers you need to make you feel at ease and they will gladly provide references.
