When should I Book a removals?

Book removals doesn’t have to be a stressful experience to move houses. We advise scheduling your removal company 3-5 weeks before your intended move date (longer in peak months like summer) to alleviate some of the stress on your shoulders. You’ll have plenty of time to gather bids, evaluate costs, and arrange your move thanks to this.

Though this is only a general guideline, you can plan your move considerably more in advance or, if necessary, at the last minute.

Why Book Removals ?

There are many advantages to scheduling a moving company well in advance. It will guarantee they will be accessible to meet your selected moving date and offer you the best opportunity of secure a decent deal with a reliable moving company.

A good period of time is 3-5 weeks since you will need to:
  • Set up a home survey or pre-move consultation.
  • Obtain and examine your quotation
  • Examine quotations and prepare any necessary modifications.
  • Make any last-minute plans for example, parking, etc.

A sufficient amount of time will allow you to plan ahead and avoid rushing through this, which is ideal because there may be a lot of other events coming up as the move date approaches, particularly if you are buying and selling a property. By hiring a moving company well in advance, you can free up your time to concentrate on other things and let your mover handle the actual relocation.

We can still get quote if you do not yet know your destination address, but we might only be able to provide you with an estimated cost for your quotation, which we will examine when you provide the specifics of your new residence.

How do I get a quote based on my approximate move dates?

We can provide a quote based on open or unconfirmed dates, but keep in mind that quotes are typically good for a move within 28 days, barring earlier agreements.

I have very little notice to move, thus I need a removal company.

If things happen faster than you predicted or if you don’t have much time, don’t worry, we will still be able to assist. It is a good idea to make plans as early as possible if you plan to move during a peak period, such as school holidays, the summer. This is because greater demand may result in unavailable transport and higher prices if you wait until the last minute.
