8 Necessary Moving Day Tips

You have actually been clearing your mess and packing up your products, but your removal quote was more costly than you anticipated. Here’s what impacts the cost of a move, and what you can do about it.

What could make my home move cost more?

We work extremely tough with our removal partners to try and ensure you get an accurate quote when using reallymoving, but there are always going to be a few circumstances that can add expenses to a home move.

We recommend asking your removal team for getting a ‘removal survey ‘, where a member of the removal group will come and assess your home. In this manner they can see just how much stuff you have and can accurately approximate how big a van you’ll need and how big a team.

Arrange Your House Removal Dublin


Here are a couple of things that can have an effect on the expense of your home move:

Being on a high flooring with no lift

It’s going to cost you more to move if there are lots of stairs to get to your flat (and no lift). This is for one of two reasons. Either it will take longer to move whatever, so you’ll spend for the additional time, or the removal business will employ more people to accelerate the move, but you’ll spend for a larger group.

It is among those regrettable things that can’t truly be prevented. Some people might wish to take a lot and try of the items downstairs themselves in the hopes of accelerating the process, however keep in mind that you have actually employed specialists who know how to carry hard or heavy products effectively without putting themselves or your items at risk.

Parking distance from the property

It might not be your fault, however if the removal team can’t park the van near your home, it’s going to take them longer to load, which will cost you more.

If you can, arrange any licenses or parking gain access to beforehand. Whether that implies applying to the council for permits or chatting with your neighbours about blocking their driveway, the more you prepare, the simpler it will be.
Do not forget this applies to the home you’re moving into, in addition to the one you’re leaving– blocking the roadway or making life hard for your new neighbours isn’t going to make the very best first impression.

Disassembly and reassembly

Confirm in advance just how much disassembly and reassembly will cost– don’t assume that those extra services are included in your quote.

You can, of course, select to disassemble products yourself and cut the costs, however if you are concerned about doing this, it’s best to leave it to your removals firm and just carry the extra expense.

As this is an additional service, always remember to book it in advance. Otherwise the timings your removal team will have worked out will be wrong, the move will take longer and you’ll end up paying more.

Garden items

When browsing your property, it’s so simple to forget the garden and miss it out from your quote. Additional products like garden furnishings or a shed loaded with tools is right away going to increase your expenses.
Exercise in advance whether you prepare to take certain structures (greenhouses, sheds, playhouses, climbing up frames) with you when you move, and whether you’ll be disassembling them yourself.

Keep in mind also that some items can’t really be moved by removals firms– open cans of paint, fertiliser, particular chemicals and plant pots often will not be accepted. Other products can be moved by removals firms but may need maintenance or preparation beforehand– for instance, if you want a removals firm to carry a lawnmower, it needs to be empty and relatively tidy. Make certain to inspect what conditions your removals firm will need you to meet for the transportation of items like these.

Other unanticipated items

Are there products in your loft or basement that you mean to take with you? Often if it’s out of sight, it’s out of mind, but that can really cost you when it comes to removal.

Your best bet is to clear your clutter prior to getting a removals firm to do a survey. That way they’ll have a clear idea of precisely what they’re dealing with, and there will not be any nasty surprises on moving day.

High value products.

You may discover that your removal company doesn’t have insurance that covers it if you’re planning on moving products that have a greater value. Likewise, if you’re moving items that are both tough to transfer and high in worth (like a grand piano), it’s going to cost more. It may also be something that your removal team can’t handle, and may need a professional with specific equipment.

Packaging services

If you’re moving from a big residential or commercial property, it often is worth the extra cash to leave the packaging to the specialists. Paying for a packing service implies that your items will be expertly loaded, less likely to break and you will not have to purchase lots of boxes.

Either it will take longer to move whatever, so you’ll pay for the extra time, or the removal business will work with more individuals to speed up the move, however you’ll pay for a larger group.

Bear in mind likewise that some items can’t truly be moved by removal firms– open cans of paint, fertiliser, specific chemicals and plant pots frequently won’t be accepted. Other items can be moved by removal companies however might need maintenance or preparation in advance– for example, if you desire a removals company to transfer a lawnmower, it requires to be empty and fairly clean. If you’re planning on moving items that have a greater worth, you may discover that your removal business does not have insurance that covers it. If you’re moving items that are both challenging to transfer and high in worth (like a grand piano), it’s going to cost more.
