How to find a local, reliable removal service

Moving out of a rental flat or just bought your first home? Whether you need help moving your belongings into storage or into a new apartment or house, a removal service can help. 

Factors to consider when choosing a removal company 

Avoid the hassle of a stressful move by hiring a skilled removal company to help you out. Look out for a removal service that: 

  1. Are a skilled company with a strong history of high quality projects  
  1. Have all the licenses and insurance needed to protect you and their workers 
  1. Have a good range of positive reviews from happy customers vouching for their reliability  
  1. Are offering the service you need, and are available to carry out the work in the timeframe you need it by 
  1. Are quoting a price and payment option that you are happy with, having compared the quote with other removal firms  

A local removal company is more likely to respond quickly as they’ll be right around the corner and ready to help.

What a removal company can help you with 

Everyone knows that moving homes can be an incredibly stressful time. To help you get the job done as quickly and stress-free as possible, relocation companies offer a range of services: 

  • House removals 
  • Moving business premises 
  • Temporary or long term storage solutions 
  • Full packing and moving services  
  • Packing down furniture and re-building it at the other end 
  • Partial packing and moving services  
  • (Hu)man with a van 

Many removal companies offer both full and partial packing services. With a full packing service you don’t have to lift a finger – they’ll arrive with bundles of boxes, bubble wrap and tape, before packing everything up for you. They’ll even dismantle furniture and build it again at the other end! 

Partial packing services will pack larger, fragile, or hard-to-move items for you on the day of the move. This is great if you’re not confident packing up fragile items and valuables, but still want to do some of the other work yourself.

What information does a removal service need from me? 

Your moving service will need a bunch of information from you to be able to carry out the job swiftly and efficiently. This includes details about the following: 

  1. Where do the belongings need to be picked up from? 
  1. Where are the belongings being moved to? 
  1. Do you require storage, and if so, for how long? 
  1. Do you require mobile storage? 
  1. The time and date of the move (the earlier you can provide this, the better) 

They may also ask you how many rooms your current property has, and how many rooms the property you are moving to has.  

Moving requires a lot of organisation and planning. To help make your move as easy as possible, we’ve created a house removal guide which includes a house move checklist and timeline for what you need to do, and when.

How much does it cost to hire a removal company? 

How much your removal job will cost depends on a range of factors, including where you live in the UK, how much stuff you’re moving, the distance from old to new home, and whether you need to hire a storage facility as well. 

Whether you want your removal company to do some (or all) of the packing for you will also impact on costs. 

On average, you can expect to pay anywhere from £1,000 and £3,000 to hire a professional mover. Local moves within 50 miles will be on the lower end of this bracket, whilst long-distance moves will cost on the higher end. 

Some companies offer international moves as well. These can cost upwards of £10,000 depending on how much stuff you’re moving and to where.

Questions to ask your removal company 

It’s a good idea to ask your removal company a few questions before you hire them: 

Are you licensed and insured? 

Make sure to ask your driveway installer what licences and insurance they have before you hire them. All removal companies that use lorries need to have drivers who have a Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) that qualifies them to drive large vehicles. 

Lorries or vans that carry over 3,500kg require a goods vehicle operators’ licence, so make sure you ask if you’re planning on moving a lot of items. Though it isn’t a requirement, you can look out for removers who are members of the British Association of Removers, which promotes professional excellence in the removal industry.  

How many years of experience do you have? 

Knowing how much experience your removal company has will allow you to pick a tradesperson who you are confident has sufficient expertise to carry out a high quality job. When you’re finding a removal firm through Rated People, head over to their profile to check out the pictures on their work gallery and their ratings and reviews. 

How long will the job take? 

Knowing what your project’s estimated timeline is will help you set realistic expectations about how long your removal job will take to complete. 

How much will the job cost? 

Asking how much the job will cost will help you budget for your project and will ensure price transparency before you hire. How much you’ll end up spending depends on the scope of your project, and where you live in the UK, so make sure you add plenty of details when you post a job.

I have money. I asked if you had a PayPal account so I could send you the deposit and you told me to “forget it” and to “find someone else”. You also gave me 1 week to get the work done before you left for 3-4 months. As I said, my feedback was accurate. You seemed nice and willing to help, but the minute I asked for a different more secure way to get you money you told me to forget it. PayPal is tracked, and secure.

Paid £650 to damp proof a small area next to my patio door and as at today the area is still wet. Contacted Michael numerous times as he said that the work is guaranteed for 10 year and I can contact him anytime if there is any issues but I’ve had no response. Will write this one off as a bad experience and will get a reputable company to correct it. I will not be using this company again and would not recommend as I don’t believe that damp proofing is something that he does.
