Save Time Planning
Even if you have moved house before, these questions will inevitably come to mind again before packing up. It’s often hard to acknowledge how many more items you have acquired since moving into the house you’re now moving out of.
House removal companies can be a significant help. These professionals have plenty of experience in all aspects of moving, including transport and planning. Companies like Britannia Cestrian Removals will provide you with a survey to assess what is needed for the most efficient packing, loading, and transporting of your fragile items, furniture, and even pets.
Save Costs on Packing Materials & Repairs
You might consider doing everything yourself will minimise expenses. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case. Here are just some factors that will affect your moving costs:
- The size of the property you move out of (the bigger the place, the more packaging material is needed),
- The value of your fragile goods,
- The size of the van you’re legally allowed to drive.
It is common to damage such items as TV screens, pottery, or mirrors while loading up the van. You can also frequently scratch the walls of narrow exits while carrying out bulkier furniture, such as a couch or wardrobe. These damages can potentially jeopardise rental deposits, as well as run up the costs of fixing fancy gadgets. The damage can be avoided by hiring professionals to help move safely and efficiently. Removal companies may also suggest getting additional insurance to protect your possessions. In some cases, they can even supply a crane to lift extremely heavy and large items.
The main way to protect furniture, household items, and the property while loading is to use appropriate, sturdy packaging. If you are moving with a family or packing an office or large premises of your own, it can be costly to supply all the necessary boxes and wrapping, as well as access proofing. This is protecting the access into rooms, such as narrow doors, halls, and spiral staircases, to avoid unnecessary surface damage. Fortunately, Britannia Cestrian Removals offer free packaging and access-proofing materials in some cases. See if you’r move could be eligible by contacting us today.
Save Time Packing
It can take days to weeks to pack a house or an office, especially when working full time and having a family to take care of. You might have to dedicate hours after work and weekends to first declutter, then pack and tape boxes, as well as deconstruct large furniture, such as a desk or a bed frame.
Professional removal teams are highly skilled at efficient packing. Whether it means wrapping a heavy, fragile item, such as a glass wardrobe door, or making the most out of space in the cardboard boxes – using vacuum bags and compact item placing, professionals will save you time, costs and, space.
Reduce The Stress of Logistics
Unless you are willing to make multiple journeys by car, you will need an appropriately sized van. If you have never driven a van before, it may not be wise to rent it for yourself or even to designate a friend to drive it for you. Some driving licenses are limited regarding the size of the vehicle you can drive; therefore, you may still be required to hire a driver. Furthermore, you would need to additionally pay for the insurance, in case of accidental vehicle damage. House removal companies typically have better service offers which include the vehicle, packaging, driver, and the removal team – depending on the size of your property and workload.

Moving Abroad After Brexit

Certainly, it is more difficult to move abroad after Brexit, and it may be the biggest obstacle on your moving list.
