Removals Quotes

Moving house is always going to be an expensive business with estate agent’s fees, solicitor’s fees, Stamp Duty Land Tax and the actual cost of transporting your belongings from your old home to your new home. There is no opportunity to shop around for a good deal with regards to the Stamp Duty Land Tax, but for all of the other expenses it is well worth doing so.

Many house removals companies can provide standard quotes online for removal services based on the distance between your old and new home and the number of bedrooms in your current home. But because each house is different it is unlikely that a standard quote will meet all of your requirements so it is always worth talking to a number of removal companies in person. Not only can standard quotes be inaccurate but prices vary depending on the part of the country you are living in and moving to and also depending on the level of service on offer. So it is often very difficult to compare like-with-like and make a fully informed decision on which removals company is offering the best deal. Nevertheless, shopping around will give you an idea of the likely costs that you will incur for a certain quality of service.

Clearly the quantity of furniture items and boxes to be moved will have an impact on the cost so too will the distance between you old and new homes. If you then choose to use a packing service for your valuable items, or have furniture dismantled in your old home and re-assembled in the new, these will, obviously add to the overall cost. So too will the removal of special items such as pianos, grandfather clocks and valuable antiques.

So start by getting a few online quotes, compare them as far as possible and then speak to a member of staff from at least three of your selected removals firms for further advice and information on insurance, special items (such as pianos) before making a decision. And remember that cost is not always the most important factor if you have very valuable possessions or any unusual moving requirements.




“Household removals require careful wrapping and packing to avoid damage to
furniture and effects, so many household policies do not cover goods in transit
unless they are being packed, carried and unpacked by a professional remover.”

Packing to move to your new home can be a large job, but one worth taking the time to do right. If you have collectibles, they may be worth a great deal of money overall. Even if they aren’t, they are likely to be something very dear to you. Packing these collectibles safely will help ensure they are going to be ready to unpack at your new destination without any type of damage to them.

When searching for a reliable removal company you need to get information about them, as they ask you several questions when requesting a removal quote, you can also ask about Insurance policies, if there are third parties involved (some removal companies work in connection with truck rental services for the moving of your belongings to the new destination, same with the Insurance policies) [
