Experience and reputation
It is important to choose one with a proven track record of successfully completing moves. Look for a company that has been in business for several years and has a good reputation in the community. You can ask for references from past customers or check online reviews to get a sense of the company’s reputation.

Communication and professionalism

You need a company that is communicative and responsive and that is willing to work with you to ensure a smooth and successful move. Look for a company that is professional and courteous, and that treats you with respect throughout the process.

Via email
If people are brief or kurt over email then it should indicate some potential problems down the road when things can get potentially stressful.
If there is a lack of information in their email or a general carelessness this should also ring alarm bells for the type of company that you are communicating with.

The same goes for chatting on the phone. You should never feel rushed to make a decision or feel like you have to be fine with not having all the information you require such as insurance, times and dates, or the experience of the staff. You should be able to ask what you want and demand what you need. You are the customer and you should be top priority.

Every good removal company should be insured up to the hilt. The cover for your belongings is called ‘Goods in transit’ insurance. You also want to be covered for your building and covered for any persons that might come in contact with the removal company. This is called ‘public liability insurance’.

For example, we are covered for up to £15,000 for goods in transit insurance and we can raise this to £200,000 for a small fee. We are insured for up to £2 million for public liability insurance. We will always be upfront about our insurance as to be covert would be very shortsighted.

With our insurance, you are covered for everything. As soon as we come in contact with your belongings until we have put them down. If you discover something after the move, you are still covered. Many companies will claim that their Insurance only covers them for goods that they have packed. This may not be true and you should fully investigate this matter. Don’t be afraid to threaten the company with a bad Google review if they refuse to show you their insurance.

Pricing Removal Companies Brighton

It is important to get an accurate estimate of the cost of the move before committing to a company. Be sure to get quotes from multiple companies and carefully review the estimates to ensure that you are getting the best value for your money. Keep in mind that the lowest price may not always be the best option, as a cheaper company may not have the necessary experience or resources to complete the move successfully.

Hourly rates are very common in removals and can work out very well for you. If you need a move in a hurry it is often the best way to price things fairly for yourself and the removal company. You only pay for what you need.
£55 per hour is what we charge for two men and a large Luton van for an hour. This works out very well for the you the customer even over a long job.

Set price moves for Removal Companies Brighton
We also run a set price alongside this hourly rate so that if we finish before the capped rate you make a saving. You are essentially safeguarded whether the removal is faster or longer than expexted.
If the company has time they should want to come out and see your move. This way they can make sure that the correct milligrams are in place. This will also help you not be charged too much in the long run.

Services offered by Removal Companies Brighton

This protects both the customer and the removal company. It serves as a record of the agreed-upon services and costs, and can help to avoid misunderstandings or disputes during the moving process.

Typically use a variety of boxes are used to pack up a house, each designed to accommodate different shapes and sizes of items. Some of the common types of boxes that might be used include:

Small boxes are ideal for packing heavy or dense items such as books, tools, and kitchen gadgets. These boxes are typically around 1.5 to 2 cubic feet in size and can hold up to 50 pounds of weight.

Medium boxes are a bit larger than small boxes, with a capacity of around 3 to 4 cubic feet. These boxes are perfect for packing items such as linens, clothing, and small appliances.

Large boxes are ideal for packing lighter items such as pillows, blankets, and towels. These boxes are typically around 4 to 6 cubic feet in size and can hold up to 65 pounds of weight.

Wardrobe boxes are large boxes with a hanging bar inside, designed to transport clothes and other hanging items without wrinkling or creasing them. These boxes are typically around 24 inches wide and 36 inches tall, and can hold a large number of clothes.

Mirror boxes are specially designed boxes with reinforced corners and extra padding to protect mirrors and other fragile items during the move. These boxes are typically around the same size as small boxes, with a capacity of around 1.5 to 2 cubic feet.

Dish packs are sturdy boxes with dividers inside to protect dishes, glassware, and other fragile items during the move. These boxes are typically around 5.2 cubic feet in size and can hold a large number of dishes and glasses.
In addition to these common types of boxes, a removals company may also use custom boxes or crates to accommodate larger or awkwardly shaped items, such as artwork, antiques, or pianos. All boxes will be at least double-walled in thickness.

Are there a variety of vehicles and transportation options to suit your needs?
How does the company handle the transportation of pets or other live animals during the move?
Does they have a process in place for dealing with inclement weather or other unforeseen circumstances?
How about experience moving to or from high-rise buildings or other difficult-to-access locations?
How does they handle the disconnection and reconnection of utilities at the new location?
Does the company offer any additional support or resources to help you plan and prepare for the move?
Do they offer a winch service? If you have furniture that ends up not fitting through the door into your next residence it may fit through a window. This needs a lot of experience and at least 3-4 staff members. The team will strap the furniture and haul it up through the window. They may also need to take the window out which also requires a lot of skill. You take the wooden beading out of the sides to allow the sash window to come out. This may cause a little damage as well so you will want to get a carpenter or painter/decorator to ‘make good’ afterward.

Extra tips for a successful move

In addition to choosing the right removal company, there are a few other things you can do to ensure a successful move:

Start packing early: Don’t wait until the last minute to start packing, as this can lead to unnecessary stress and a rushed job. Start packing non-essential items well in advance of the move, and be sure to label all boxes with their contents and the room they will go in at the new house.

Make a packing list: A packing list can help you stay organized and ensure that you don’t forget anything important. Include a list of items to be packed in each box, as well as a list of items that you will need to have with you on moving day (such as medications, important documents, and valuables).

Disconnect and defrost: Be sure to disconnect and properly prepare all appliances for the move, including refrigerators and freezers. Defrost the freezer at least 24 hours before the move to allow it to dry out completely.

Arrange for childcare and pet care: Moving can be chaotic, and it may not be safe or practical to have children or pets underfoot on moving day. Consider arranging for childcare or pet care to allow you to focus on the move.

Take inventory: Before the move, take an inventory of your belongings and make a list of valuable items. This can help you keep track of your possessions and ensure that everything arrives at the other end.
