If it is your first time, you may find it difficult to decide what information is important to make your decision. We recommend that you consider the following factors when choosing a removal company quote.
Price is important, especially if you are trying to keep to a budget. However, do not compromise the quality of your move for a few extra pounds. As mentioned before, a cheaper price may indicate that there could be hidden costs that will be added later. It’s essential that you determine exactly what service you receive for the price.
Scope of services
Make sure that the moving company offers the services you require for the move. Discuss with the removal company exactly what services you wish to include in your removal quote.
- Moving boxes and packing service. If you require moving boxes, you can often request to use some that belong to the moving company. Or you can allow the professionals to pack your possessions directly.
- If your new home is not ready to move into, then you may need to hold your furniture in storage. Some removal companies can offer this service.
- Transporting special items. Do you hope to move any valuable or fragile items such as a piano? Then you may need to select a moving company that has the capabilities to move such furniture.

You can find the profiles of over 1000 removal companies on Sirelo. There, you will be able to read real customer reviews and experiences.

We highly recommend that you research moving companies online. Check out their websites and get a sense of how experienced they are. By researching the companies you can get a better idea of whether they have the relevant experience to complete your move. Especially If your move is quite complex then it is important that you have confidence in your mover.
