For how long Does It Take To Move House?

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

What could make my home move expense more?

We work really difficult with our removal partners to try and make sure you get an accurate quote when using reallymoving, however there are constantly going to be a couple of circumstances that can add expenses to a home move.

We suggest asking your removal group for getting a ‘removal survey ‘, where a member of the removal team will come and examine your home. This way they can see simply just how much things you have and can properly approximate how big a van you’ll require and how huge a group.

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 without any 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 factors. Either it will take longer to move whatever, so you’ll pay for the additional time, or the removal business will work with more people to speed up the move, however you’ll pay for a larger group.

It is one of those unfortunate things that can’t truly be prevented. Some people may wish to attempt and take a lot of the products downstairs themselves in the hopes of accelerating the process, but bear in mind that you have actually employed specialists who understand how to carry heavy or tough items correctly without putting themselves or your products at risk.

Parking range from the property

It might not be your fault, but if the removal team can’t park the van near your residential or commercial property, it’s going to take them longer to pack, which will cost you more.

Organize any authorizations or parking gain access to in advance if you can. Whether that means applying to the council for authorizations or talking with your neighbours about blocking their driveway, the more you prepare, the easier it will be.
Don’t forget this applies to the home you’re moving into, as well as the one you’re leaving– making or blocking the roadway life challenging for your new neighbours isn’t going to make the very best first impression.

Disassembly and reassembly

Confirm ahead of time just how much disassembly and reassembly will cost– don’t presume that those additional services are consisted of in your quote.

You can, obviously, choose to dismantle items yourself and cut the costs, however if you are worried about doing this, it’s finest to leave it to your removals firm and simply shoulder the additional expense.

As this is an additional service, always keep in mind to schedule it ahead of time. Otherwise the timings your removal group will have exercised will be wrong, the move will take longer and you’ll wind up paying more.

Garden items

When taking a look around your home, it’s so easy to forget the garden and miss it out from your quote. Extra items like garden furniture or a shed loaded with tools is right away going to increase your expenses.
Work out beforehand whether you prepare to take certain structures (greenhouses, sheds, play houses, climbing up frames) with you when you move, and whether you’ll be disassembling them yourself.

Keep in mind likewise that some products can’t actually be moved by removals firms– open cans of paint, fertiliser, specific chemicals and plant pots frequently will not be accepted. Other items can be moved by removals firms but may need upkeep or preparation beforehand– for instance, if you desire a removals firm to carry a lawnmower, it needs to be relatively tidy and empty. Make sure to examine what conditions your removals firm will require you to satisfy for the transportation of products like these.

Other unanticipated products

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 truly cost you when it comes to removal.

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

High value items.

If you’re planning on moving products that have a higher worth, you might find that your removal company does not have insurance that covers it. If you’re moving items that are both challenging to transfer and high in value (like a grand piano), it’s going to cost more. It may also be something that your removal group can’t manage, and might require an expert with particular equipment.

Packing services

If you’re moving from a large home, it in some cases is worth the additional money to leave the packaging to the experts. Paying for a packaging service implies that your items will be professionally loaded, less most likely to break and you won’t need to buy great deals of boxes. This can be an exceptional service to make use of if you’re brief on time or individuals to assist. However, remember that it is constantly an additional cost.

Either it will take longer to move whatever, so you’ll pay for the extra time, or the removal company will employ more individuals to speed up the move, but you’ll pay for a larger team.

Bear in mind also that some items can’t really be moved by removal firms– open cans of paint, fertiliser, specific chemicals and plant pots frequently will not be accepted. Other products can be moved by removal companies however may require upkeep or preparation beforehand– for example, if you want a removals firm to transfer a lawnmower, it needs to be relatively tidy and empty. If you’re planning on moving items that have a greater worth, you might discover that your removal company doesn’t have insurance coverage that covers it. If you’re moving products that are both difficult to transfer and high in worth (like a grand piano), it’s going to cost more.
