Apr 14, 2014 | | Sticky post

Moving can be a lot easier with the help of a moving company, especially if you have a lot of properties which needs to be relocated to your new address. However, you have to understand that when you get the services of a moving company, you have to be prepared to spend more money compared to doing the move all by yourself.

You may be spending more money but you will be saving yourself from the hassle of having to move the boxes on your own, driving the truck and unloading the boxes yourself. Finding the right house removal company is a commitment which will take up time and effort.


One of the most important steps in finding the right house removal company is research. There are numerous companies in the city and it will be difficult to tell which one is reliable solely just by looking at their ads on newspapers or the television.  The internet is a good place to start looking for house removal companies however; it is also filled with scams. Your best bet is to ask friends and family if they have any company they can recommend.

If you do search on the Internet, you have to ensure that the company has the right license to operate and also has insurance. Pick a company that will do an in-home estimate. Before they give you a quotation, they should at least take a look at the things you want them to move. Furthermore, you have to ensure that house removal company will be doing the moving themselves and not subcontracting it to anyone else.

Narrow the search

After you take a look at the companies, you need to narrow down your search to at least three. Find out if the companies are legitimate. Choose a company which does not only have reasonable prices but also excellent services. Remember, you get what you pay for. If you par cheap, you will most probably get cheap service too.


In order  to do a proper assessment, the company will have to send a representative to check all your stuff and give you an estimate of how much it will cost to move them. A company will not be able to do a proper estimate if they have not even seen your things. Avoid companies which will only give you estimates based on cubic feet. If you really want the best rate, you should get two or three companies to come and take a look at your things but this is a time consuming process.

Make a deal

Once you find the most suitable house removal company, you can make a deal with them. Decide on a rate which works for the both of you. It should be a win-win situation for both the company and the customer. Whatever you do, you should never sign a blank contract. This will lead to all sorts of problems. Before you sign the contract, you should also make sure that you have read and understand the contract.
