Is Weekday Or Weekend Moving Better?

You have actually been clearing your mess and evacuating your items, however your removal price estimate was more expensive than you anticipated. Here’s what affects the expense of a move, and what you can do about it.

What could make my home move cost more?

We work really tough with our removal partners to attempt and make sure you get an accurate quote when using reallymoving, however there are constantly going to be a few situations that can include expenses to a home move.

We recommend asking your removal group for getting a ‘removal study ‘, where a member of the removal team will come and examine 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 group.

Arrange Your House Removal Dublin


Here are a couple of things that can have an influence 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 factors. Either it will take longer to move whatever, so you’ll pay for the extra time, or the removal business will hire more people to accelerate the move, but you’ll spend for a bigger group.

It is among those regrettable things that can’t really be prevented. Some people may wish to try and take a lot of the products downstairs themselves in the hopes of speeding up the procedure, however keep in mind that you’ve employed specialists who understand how to carry hard or heavy items correctly without putting themselves or your products at risk.

Parking distance from the home

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

If you can, set up any authorizations or parking access beforehand. Whether that indicates applying to the council for permits or talking with your neighbours about obstructing their driveway, the more you plan, 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 obstructing the roadway life difficult for your new neighbours isn’t going to make the best impression.

Disassembly and reassembly

Validate beforehand just how much disassembly and reassembly will cost– don’t assume that those additional services are included in your quote.

You can, of course, 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 take on the extra expenditure.

As this is an additional service, always remember to reserve it beforehand. Otherwise the timings your removal group will have worked out will be wrong, the move will take longer and you’ll wind up paying more.

Garden products

When looking around your property, it’s so simple to forget the garden and miss it out from your quote. Additional items like garden furniture or a shed full of tools is immediately going to increase your costs.
Work out beforehand whether you prepare to take certain structures (greenhouses, sheds, playhouses, climbing up frames) with you when you move, and whether you’ll be dismantling them yourself.

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

Other unexpected items

Are there products in your loft or basement that you intend to take with you? Frequently if it’s out of sight, it’s out of mind, however that can actually cost you when it comes to removal.

Your best option is to clear your mess before 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.

You might discover that your removal company does not have insurance that covers it if you’re planning on moving products that have a higher value. Likewise, if you’re moving items that are both tough to carry 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 may require a specialist with particular devices.

Packing services

If you’re moving from a big residential or commercial property, it in some cases is worth the additional money to leave the packing to the experts. Spending for a packing service indicates that your items will be professionally loaded, less most likely to break and you won’t need to buy great deals of boxes. If you’re short on time or individuals to help, this can be an excellent service to utilize. Bear in mind that it is constantly an extra cost.

Either it will take longer to move whatever, so you’ll pay for the additional time, or the removal company will employ more individuals to speed up the move, however you’ll pay for a bigger group.
