Moving can be a stressful time for everyone. Professional removalists can help make this stressful time easier by taking care of everything. However, one should make sure that the removalist they hire is professional and trustworthy. 

Here are some tips on hiring a removalist:

Ensure that the removalist is insured 

The objects being moved are not only valuable but also carry sentimental value. When one hires an insured removalist, they are guaranteed that if any valuables are misplaced or damaged, they will be able to claim back the money through insurance. Accidents can occur at anytime, and particularly when fragile goods are being shifted, accidents can easily occur. Hiring insured removalists gives one peace of mind.

Price estimate 

Hiring a removalist can greatly reduce the stress associated with moving. However, it is important to know what the costs associated with removalist services will be. Be sure to detail which objects will be moved to prevent any nasty surprises when the bill arrives. When obtaining a quote, the removalist company should include the total price estimate for the move, the time it will take for the items to be transported and any payment terms, such as the requirement for a deposit. One should obtain a price estimate from several different removalists and choose the most affordable and reliable option. Also read the quote and any fine print in detail.

Additional services 

Many removalists offer additional services that make the moving process easier. One of these is offering packing boxes that one can use to package their belongings. Some services even have an option where they provide staff to help people package their belongings in the safest manner possible. Furthermore, staff can also help you unload the belongings once they arrive at the destination. These services are especially helpful for those people who are short on time, the elderly and those who have some type of disability. One should check the additional prices of these services beforehand to ensure they are getting a competitive rate.


Another way of finding the right removalist is by talking to family and friends. There are sure to be some close friends and family who have gone through the moving process. These people can give valuable insight into hiring a good removalist. They may even be able to provide contact details of a reliable removalist company. 

Always remember to carry out thorough research before hiring any removalist company.
