You may think that hiring a removal company is just a matter of picking the most experienced removers you can find. However, there are a few things that can affect the quoted price you get from your remover. In this post we highlight some of the ways that you can save money on your removal, without doing the hard work yourself.
Pick a removal company that is local to you.
For any removal company to travel long distances it has to be commercial viable for them to do so. So when choosing a removal company, picking a company that is local to you, or local to where you are moving to, will allow more flexibility for that removal company to offer you a competitive quote.
Provide as much information as you can when asking for a quote.
Taking the guesswork out of a removal job is a gift for a company when providing you with a quote. The more unknowns in your removal means that quotes can be a little off the mark, as without all the required info, a removal company will not know the amount of work involved. Be sure to have an inventory of your large items (like furniture), your removal date (if you have it confirmed), a rough idea of how many possessions you have, as well as any other info that might make your move a challenge (for example, if you live in an upper floor flat)
Avoid extra charges: Be prepared.
It is extremely rare for Ois Removals to charge outside of the quoted cost for our services (our current ‘quote accuracy’ is 100% over the last 12-months). We do our utmost to complete the job within your budget, and this happens in the vast majority of jobs. However, there are things you can do with any removal company to ensure you don’t get any extra charges:
- Be sure you give all information that is requested.
- Plan your removal day so that both properties are accessible when your removal company needs access.
- Make sure parking is available near your property on your removal day.
- Have your boxes packed and ready to go when your removal team arrives.
- Have a plan of your new house ready, so that your boxes are placed in the right rooms.
Get more than one quote.
It may seem like a no brainer, but ensure that you get at least two quotes for your removal, if both quotes are similar then you are sure you are playing the right kind of price. However, don’t just go with the cheapest quote, as not all removal companies are equal – and a company like Ois Removals have decades of positive customer feedback and we won’t let you down.
Pick a reputable removal company.
Just because a company is the cheapest, it absolutely does not mean it is the best. If something seems too good to be true, it often is, so make sure you read up on customer reviews before making your final decision on a removal company.
