Choosing the right removal company

Choosing the Right Removal Company regardless of whether you are moving to the other side of the world or just across the street will make a world of difference to your house move and the stress levels that can be endured on such an exercise.
But what should you look for in finding professional house movers who are reliable and equipped to take the stress off your shoulders?…

Firstly, Why Hire a House Removal Company?

The physical and mental energy involved in moving from one house to another cannot be understated. Beyond just packing the boxes, hauling them into and out of the moving truck, up and down stairs, through and around the bedlam can be incredibly exhausting. Employing professionals to shoulder this burden for you can free you up to oversee the other details of the move and create an considerably more pleasant experience for you. At Bert Tarry Carriers we have been in business for over 70 years which means we have moved alot of furniture, household items and everything in between during that time. Pianos, horses, cars…. you name it we have moved it.


Shop Around for Quotes

Take the time to get several professional quotes well before your move out date. Factor in not just the price, but the services you will receive and what time frames the company will work within. Favor companies offering to provide free estimates. Consider whether you would also like additional packing services and enquire about what this entails. Beware of quotes that are not very specific; a more detailed assessment is best so that you know exactly what you are paying for and what is not included in the quote.

Allow Enough Time

Reputable removal companies can be booked up well in advance so book one in as soon as possible to ensure your first choice is actually available on the day of your move. The house moving quotation process itself can also take some time so be sure to get it underway as early as you can. Inform your movers in advance regarding anything they might need to know about your new house’s access points and general layout. Knowing for example how many staircases they will encounter and whether the property is particularly steep or hard to access will help with their planning.

Don’t Get Burned

Be sure to find a company that is trustworthy, given the fact that you will be intrusting them with all of your valued possessions. Look for a company that has been in business for some time, and who have established a good reputation for themselves. Ask around for word-of-mouth recommendations and check for client testimonials in their brochures or on their website. Don’t be tempted to pay slightly less, for an unprofessional service. A bit of research can save a lot of stress. Knowing that you have employed a reliable removal company who provide the right equipment and expertise will ensure your transition from one home to the next is smooth and hassle-free.
