Important Moving Day Tips.

You’ve been clearing your mess and packing up your items, but your removal estimate was more costly than you expected. Here’s what impacts the expense of a move, and what you can do about it.

What could make my home move cost more?

We work extremely difficult with our removal partners to attempt and ensure you get a precise quote when using reallymoving, however there are always going to be a couple of circumstances that can add expenses to a home move.

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

Arrange Your House Removal Dublin


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

Being on a high flooring with no lift

If there are lots of stairs to get to your flat (and no lift), it’s going to cost you more to move. 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 company will hire more individuals to accelerate the move, but you’ll spend for a bigger group.

It is one of those unfortunate things that can’t really be avoided. Some people might wish to take a lot and attempt of the products downstairs themselves in the hopes of accelerating the procedure, however keep in mind that you have actually hired specialists who know how to bring challenging or heavy items effectively without putting themselves or your items at risk.

Parking distance from the property

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

Set up any authorizations or parking access in advance if you can. Whether that suggests applying to the council for authorizations or talking with your neighbours about obstructing their driveway, the more you prepare, the easier it will be.
Don’t forget this applies to the residential or commercial property you’re moving into, in addition to the one you’re leaving– making or blocking the road life hard for your new neighbours isn’t going to make the best first impression.

Disassembly and reassembly

Confirm beforehand how much disassembly and reassembly will cost– do not presume that those extra services are included in your quote.

You can, of course, pick to dismantle items yourself and cut the expenses, but if you are worried about doing this, it’s best to leave it to your removals firm and just shoulder the extra cost.

As this is an additional service, constantly remember to book it beforehand. Otherwise the timings your removal team will have exercised will be wrong, the move will take longer and you’ll wind up paying more.

Garden products

When looking around your residential or commercial property, it’s so easy to forget the garden and miss it out from your quote. Additional products like garden furnishings or a shed loaded with tools is instantly going to increase your expenses.
Work out ahead of time whether you plan to take specific structures (greenhouses, sheds, playhouses, climbing up frames) with you when you move, and whether you’ll be dismantling them yourself.

Bear in mind likewise that some items can’t actually be moved by removals firms– open cans of paint, fertiliser, particular chemicals and plant pots typically will not be accepted. Other items can be moved by removals firms but may require maintenance or preparation ahead of time– for instance, if you desire a removals firm to carry a lawnmower, it needs to be fairly tidy and empty. Make sure to examine what conditions your removals firm will require you to satisfy for the transport of items like these.

Other unanticipated products

Are there items in your loft or basement that you intend to take with you? Frequently 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 before getting a removals firm to do a study. 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 intending on moving items that have a higher worth, you might find that your removal company does not have insurance that covers it. Likewise, if you’re moving products that are both difficult to transport and high in value (like a grand piano), it’s going to cost more. It might also be something that your removal group can’t handle, and might require a professional with particular devices.

Packaging services

If you’re moving from a large residential or commercial property, it often is worth the extra cash to leave the packaging to the experts. Paying for a packaging service indicates that your products will be professionally loaded, less likely to break and you won’t have to buy lots of boxes.

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

Bear in mind also that some products can’t truly be moved by removal firms– open cans of paint, fertiliser, certain chemicals and plant pots often will not be accepted. Other products can be moved by removal companies but may require upkeep or preparation ahead of time– for example, if you want a removals company to carry a lawnmower, it needs to be fairly clean and empty. If you’re planning on moving items that have a higher value, you might discover that your removal company does not have insurance coverage that covers it. If you’re moving products that are both challenging to transport and high in value (like a grand piano), it’s going to cost more.
