What should you expect from a professional home removals company?
House removals firm checklist
Removals companies should bring packing materials designed for the task, such as long cartons for linen, wardrobe cartons (with a bar to hang clothes on), lampshade cartons and even gold club cartons. Furniture should be protected from scratches and dents by a bubble blanket or special covers.
You can choose a range of packing services from a full pack – where the removals company packs everything – to a fragile pack where the removals team packs the fragile items only.
The removals team will pack and wrap your belongings and load them onto a removals van or lorry using packing and loading standards. At your new home the team will unload, unpack and place the goods onto flat surfaces – you will need to direct them as the where each item of furniture should be put.
You may want to store some of your furniture and other items between moves. Most removals companies offer a storage facility for short or long periods. Alternatively, look for a special storage business to keep your items safe until they are required.
If you are moving with children, you will need to think about who will mind them while you are supervising the move or packing and moving everything yourself.
