Tips For Hiring House Removals Milton Keynes

So you purchased your new home in Walnut Tree because it’s a location that allows you to quickly get to work or perhaps it’s time for the next big step for you and your partner to move in together in Netherfield, Milton Keynes. Regardless of why you’re moving, you’ll need to work with house removals like Ark Relocation to make sure your possessions safely get to their destination.


Moving can quite stressful, and without proper planning, it can be a financial catastrophe. So, before you pick up the phone and call the movers, you need to know who you’ll be working with. A moving company can either make or spoil your house removal experience. Here are tips to help you when you’re hiring house removals Milton Keynes.

  1. Get At Least Three Cost Estimates


When looking to hire a mover, you need to make sure that you’re not overspending. Ask for recommendations from friends or family members to help narrow down the option. When asking for an estimate, don’t just settle for house removals who only give an estimate over the phone. It is imperative that they come to your house and get a clear picture of what they will be dealing with. A company who will send someone to do a house inspection before a move is more likely to make an accurate estimate. However, movers can change the price if circumstance change. So, make sure they tell you about any change in the cost before the removal process commences.


2.Hire Reputable & Insured House Removals companies


Never work with a cheap mover. Check that the house movers are members of a trade assocaition like The Association Of Independent Movers before and after you contact them. Don’t be satisfied with just their word, ask for proof and note down the membership number for confirmation. An insured moving company means they provide coverage for your belongings. But, often, the insurance won’t cover everything. So, find out which damages their insurance covers. This is especially important if the will also be moving your jewellery or art. Also, the coverage won’t cover damage or loss of items by you.

  1. Go For Comprehensive Services


Another important tip is to pick a company that provides comprehensive services. You don’t want to work with a company that won’t help you pack or unpack. Whether you’re moving from an apartment at City Stay Apartment or to a house in Milton Keynes Village, you’ll want movers who will work with you from start to finish. Therefore, go for a company that offers customised packing, piano moving, unpacking reassembling services and also help to clean the house after the move. Also, rather than do the packing yourself, let the professionals do it.


This might be the prime time for you to move. But before you make any commitments that might turn out to be monumental disasters, do some research on the best house removals Milton Keynes. Again, pay attention to the estimate and make sure you get it in writing because own quoted estimates might change only to have your things held hostage until you clear the extra cost. Don’t forget to keep a copy of the order and everything else you sign.
