Your move smoothly arranged with Meta Top Movers
5 Tips to choosing a removal company
Once you have decided to move using a removal company, you can start looking for a suitable partner. But how do you choose a removal company that suits you best? And what do you look for? Undoubtedly you have made a list of removal companies in your area. But which one should you choose? We’d love to help you get started with these 5 tips.
Tip 1. A recognised Removal Company or not?
Make sure the removal company is affiliated to the Organisation of Recognised removal companies. Of course you’re not obligated to choose a Recognised removal company, but it does have some advantages. Meta Top Movers is affiliated with the Recognised removal companies, so we can only recommend you choose a Recognised Removal Company.
Tip 2. Warranty and Insurance
Ask about what guarantees you are entitled to, when moving. For example, is the relocation guaranteed if the removal company suddenly goes bankrupt or will you lose your money? And what insurances are applicable? When you choose a mover who is a member of Recognised Removal Companies, insurance is taken out for your belongings during the move.
Tip 3. Start early with comparisons
Don’t wait too long to find a suitable removal company. It is best to start immediately as soon as you know your moving date. If you start too shortly before you move, you will definitely find that you have a shortage of time to move in a peaceful manner.
Tip 4. Make an appointment at home
Every move is personal. Always make an appointment at home with the removal company. This allows you to get to know the company, the removal process and enables you to better asses, whether this company is the right choice for you. In addition, the removal company can create a completely personalized quote. If the removal company is not willing to come to you, then this should raise some questions…
Tip 5. Take a good look at the Terms & Conditions
When you’ve received a quote, always check that all costs are listed correctly. Make sure that it is clearly stated what the removal company is responsible in doing and what you will be expected to do yourself. Make sure you thoroughly understand the whole quote. If anything is unclear, please contact the removal company. However small or trivial it may seem, you always contact us about the terms & conditions.
In short, make sure you clearly know what arrangements have been made. In this way all surprises can be avoided.
