How to choose a removal company in Cardiff

A good removals company will take all of the stress away from the final leg of moving home. As the day of your move nears, plan ahead to give yourself enough time to choose the right removals company. Your options range from the big national removals companies with fleets of vehicles to a local man with a van or anywhere in between.

Q: How do I decide which service is right for me?

A: Professional removals firms have various levels of service according to the size of the move and how long it will take. You’ll be able to find out which service is right for you with a quick search on Google. Prices are usually quoted in days and half days for whole house moves. Small Move Company also offer a 2-hour budget option. If you have access to your own transport and manpower you can get quotes for just dismantling and packaging your possessions as well as safely disconnecting appliances for transport.

Once you’ve decided on the service, contact several companies and request a free quote. Make sure that you are comparing like for like, ask about any additional fees such as payments for delays and whether you pay for boxes and packaging or if the company lends them to you.

Q: What type of vehicle will I need?

A: The larger national removal companies have fleets of vehicles from large trucks down to smaller transit vans. Local removals companies tend to have smaller fleets of mid-sized vans. The mid-sized vans are cheaper to run and make it easier to access busy streets. Vans should also be kitted out with specialised removals equipment to ensure that nothing is damaged during transit.

Q: Should I choose a large established company?

A: It may be possible to find a really competitive quote from a local man with a van but what happens if a disaster happens and the van breaks down or if he is ill on the day of your move? It’s best to select a firm with a good sized fleet of vehicles and a big enough team to handle peaks and troughs in demand.

Q: How important are online reviews?

A: Online reviews are the next best thing to a personal recommendation for narrowing down your choice. A reputable company will have plenty of independent reviews and testimonials for you to browse through. Be wary of companies with limited feedback and be sure to read the details to get a feel for their removals team, how helpful they are and the level of customer service they provide.

Q: Do I need a home survey?

A: Prospective companies should pay you a visit to survey your house in person to make an inventory of everything that needs to be moved and assess any issues with access. They will base your quote on the details which should be binding unless something significant changes on the day of the move.

Q: Are my possessions covered by their insurance?

A: Find out the value of the company’s insurance cover for goods in transit to cover lost items and breakages. Typically contents are covered up to the value of £50,000, if you require insurance for more than this, it can usually be arranged.

Q: Are there any items that can’t be moved?

A: Reputable removals companies find a way to pack and move the most unwieldy items. However, anything that is dangerous, i.e. flammable or corrosive, plant and animals, perishable food and valuables such as passports, jewellery and cash are best to transport personally.

Q: How far will they travel?

A: It makes sense to use a local removals company that knows your area or a national firm with a network of local offices. Moves within the same area are included in the cost. For longer distance moves fuel charges are added based on mileage.

Q: How can you pay?

A: Be wary of firms that ask for payment in cash or a large cash deposit, although paying in cash shouldn’t be a problem if that’s what you prefer. Reputable companies will accept credit and debit card payments as well as by cheque or online bank transfer. You will be required to pay a deposit or payment in full to secure your booking.

Q: What if I need to cancel or reschedule?

A: House buyers and sellers change their minds all the time which means that it is inevitable that scheduled moves need to be changed. To remain efficient removals companies need to be able to plan ahead and make the best use of their vehicles and teams. At Small Move Company we ask for 14 days notice to cancel or reschedule. Between 8 - 14 days we will refund 50% of your deposit, 7 days or less requires payment in full.

Q: Do they charge VAT?

A: Companies under a certain size don’t have to charge VAT which may be good news if you are looking for a bargain. However, you may question whether smaller companies have enough backup resources to guarantee that your move will go according to plan if something unexpected happens.

Q: Do I need a specialist domestic or commercial removals company?

A: Many removals companies offer both specialist commercial and domestic removals. Experienced commercial fitters project manage the whole process and work around your business hours to ensure that any disruption is kept to a minimum.

Q: Can I store my possessions between move dates?

A: Removals companies provide storage solutions to store possessions until you have enough room in your new home or need long-term storage. Look for safe, secure, clean storage to keep individual items or a house full of contents.
