Should you move house by yourself or with a moving company?

Moving house is expensive, so a common question is: should we hire a moving company or just do it ourselves? Of course, if you have enough know-how, time, and the right equipment, then this is a great option. However, the reality is that preparing a move takes time and effort and expertise, not to mention physical strength! You also want to consider that many removal companies have insurance in case things go wrong, which your friend with a van might not. In these cases, it is advised that you outsource with a moving company.

How do I pick the best removal company for me?

When picking a moving company, cost is of course an important factor, but so is quality! After all, it’s not just about moving house – you’re moving your whole life. When picking a removalist, we recommend that you look for someone who offers some of the following:

  • Has a professional yet friendly approach that you feel safe with
  • Is careful to safely wrap all of your belongings
  • Can transport fragile and expensive items such as pianos and fine art
  • Works effectively and precisely
  • Has the right tools and materials
  • Can help you with administration at customs
  • Offers extra services such as packing and unpacking

A number of removal companies are also part of moving associations: these are moving networks that often have entry requirements that guarantee your mover is of a high quality standard.

If you are moving abroad, we have compiled a list of the best international removalists in the UK. However, note that when it comes to picking your mover, you need to decide who is the best moving company for you.

Moving house checklist

When moving house, often there are so many things to remember that it can be hard to monitor everything. Not only do you need to pack your things, but you need to calculate the volume of your move, switch energy suppliers, pick the best moving company for you…. That’s where our moving house checklist comes in! Not only can you tick off what you need to do before your move, but you use it to plan a timeframe for your move. We even cover the things you do after you move house! You can download our checklist for free as a PDF or print it to tick off yourself.

If you are moving internationally, you are also at the right place! We have a checklist for moving abroad that will help you take the steps with arranging your taxes, your retirement plans and arranging a container for a move abroad. If you want more information on moving to a specific country, we also have country overviews where you can read about what you need to plan for your move there.

Removal company costs

How much does it cost to move house? It’s one of the most frequent questions we get asked, and there is sadly no easy answer to it. A move depends on several factors: not just the volume of your move and the distance, but indeed whether you are moving internationally or not, whether you are moving during the holidays or the weekend… We have dedicated articles on national and international moves on moving costs to help you estimate the price of your move, but indeed the only way to get a straight answer is by getting a quote from a moving company.

Request moving quotes

If you’re moving house, then the only way to get a direct answer to a lot of your questions is by getting quotes from moving companies. However, with all the moving companies that are out there, it can get overwhelming knowing who to choose. That’s why at Sirelo, we advise that you fill out our quote form so that you can then receive up to five removal quotes from moving companies.

Tip! It is important that as well as the price, you check out what services the moving company offers, as well as their most recent reviews online.
