Essential Brighton Moving Guide
I am guessing that you will start your process of elimination online. If you have been recommended a couple of companies then you may research them online to check out the reviews and pricing system. If any of these areas do not check out. Either their prices are too high or they have had some awful reviews then it’s back to the drawing board with your next chosen company. There are plenty of ‘top seated amateur’ companies in Brighton to choose from. So feel free to whistle through them as fast a you like. Use your research and intuition to guide you.They will want to know all of your details so I have them to hand. Such information you will need will be;
They will want to know your date of moving or proposed dates. This will primarily be of interest to them because they will want to see if they have any availability for you. If they do not then there is no point continuing with the quote process.
Removal companies are used to dealing with flexible and changing move dates. Reputable companies usually have more than one vehicle and so should be able to cater for changing dates.
Also we are used to the way that solicitors work ( badly). We know that the buying process is fraught with difficulties, hold-ups and awkward situations. There are so many people involved in the house buying process. Even getting one piece of paperwork can mean a whole week passes by. Why solicitors don’t just pick up the phone and talk things through is beyond me. But that is a whole other guide in itself!
Essential Brighton Moving Guide: Google
Companies may ask you to put a holding deposit down which is protects them if your move. Through and they have turned away other work. This is standard practice and is no cause for alarm.
They will also need your current address and destination address.
They will probably check these out on Google Street view. This will allow your company to gauge the type of access and therefore to be able to estimate how long your move will take. This service provided by Google is invaluable for removal companies. As you can imagine being able to see things in 3-D are essential in being able to gauge what resources you need on the move. Such as, the number of men and the number of vehicles. It also gives them an idea of what size of vehicle can actually fit down your road. Some roads are too thin or have barriers up so 7.5 ton lorries cannot fit down them.
Others may have height restrictions. You may have forgotten to mention that the access to the back of your apartment block or carpark has a height restriction. Either a barrier or a wall. If the removal company is unaware of this then this can make your right and moving costs skyrocket! If they have bought Charlie wheels with them then they may be able to Who will your items fairly rapidly from your apartment doors to the van but the still take some time and not all companies carry a sack truck or trolley wheels or piano wheels as standard.
Google Street view is also invaluable for companies. This is because if they have moved in that street before this will jog your memory. They will know to look out for parking restrictions and parking traffic cameras.
They will also need to know the number of bedrooms and whether you have loft space shared or A garage that needs clearing.

It may not have occurred to you that these spaces will need tackling and sorting. You need to decide whether you want your removal company to do that or if you will do need to sort it out.
Anything over a one bedroom flat should require a home visit from your removal company. If not then they could run into some serious issues on the day. They may see things that I did not expect to see such as the floor-to-ceiling wardrobes that need to be just rentals. I’ve done about another two hours also move.
Are there any parts of your move out of the ordinary? You should take just a moment to consider all aspects of your move before calling the company. Including things like packing materials. This is so you have everything ready for the conversation.
For example do you own a piano? And is it on the first floor? Or do you require a server to come out of a window? Or perhaps you have needed a Banister to come off in order for a chest of drawers to get round the staircase.
All you need to remember as much as you can about the practicalities so that your removal company. They can give you a precise quote. Otherwise this can cause huge delays on the day and cost you a lot of money.
