Things to look out for when hiring furniture movers

No matter whether you are relocating your entire household to a new address, or you just need a single bulky piece of furniture to be picked up from one place in London and delivered to another, you need to know that you can trust the technicians that you hire to help you with the job.

On the importance of hiring a removal company

Some people think that they can save money by not hiring a professional moving company for their moving day. While generally speaking DIY projects may be a good idea in some cases, when it comes to furniture moving, it might not be the greatest of plans. A good moving company will provide you with a lot of comfort and peace of mind, as well as the assurance that you have capable movers with the right skills, equipment and vehicles to handle the job. Moving even single bulky pieces of furniture in your family’s car might very well turn out to be mission impossible, at least if you want to avoid accidents  – which we consider safe to assume that you do.

How to choose the right moving company for you

The trick to knowing that the moving company you choose is indeed the right one for you is, as it is to be expected, in the preparation. Just make sure that the contractor you consider is:

  • Has the proper licensing to carry out domestic removals in the UK. It is never a good idea to go for a company that is not properly certified, and if the one you are looking at is not, it should be a really big red flag for you.
  • That they can offer you suitable Goods in Transit Insurance to be added to your quote. While the right relocation service is enough to guarantee the stress-free transportation of your items from point A to point B, it is always better to have a safety net.
  • The customer support that the contractor offers can tell you a lot about the attitude of the respective company towards the job. If they are responsible, provide you with good, informative answers and you can get in touch with them at any time if you have any questions, then it might be a sign that you are on the right path.
  • When you are moving with kids, people with special needs or pets, there are many additional arrangements that need to be taken into consideration. Make sure to have a face to face discussion on those with your movers and see how responsible they are towards them. It is important to know that you can count on them.
  • On a related note, even though we live in an age that does not require live-meetings with the people you hire for certain jobs, the best way to figure out if a person or a company is trustworthy is to drop by their office and talk to them in person. That is one of the most important things you have to do, actually.
