Always read the agreement before you sign anything. Double check all of the costs and always ask if you are unsure about something. Try and obtain at least 3 quotes from different companies so that you have an accurate idea of how much it should cost you.
Money and valuable items should not be packed to be taken by a removal company. It’s always better to take them yourself.
Supervise the loading and unloading of your goods. You should also think about obtaining relocation insurance to make sure your goods are protected during transportation.
Pack and prepare as many things as possible so that everything is ready for the removal company on the moving day. This will also help you to save some money as you won’t need their service for unnecessarily prolonged periods.
If unsure, seek help from suitable sources to help you make a decision.
