Moving Home Checklist

You’ve been clearing your mess and packing up your products, but your removal price quote was more expensive than you expected. Here’s what affects the cost 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 ensure you get an accurate quote when utilizing reallymoving, but there are always going to be a couple of circumstances that can include expenses to a home move.

We advise asking your removal group for getting a ‘removal survey ‘, where a member of the removal group will come and examine your home. By doing this they can see simply how much things you have and can precisely estimate how huge a van you’ll require and how big a team.

Arrange Your House Removal Dublin


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

Being on a high floor with no lift

If there are great deals 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 factors. 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 spend for a larger group.

It is among those regrettable things that can’t really be prevented. Some individuals may want to take a lot and try of the products downstairs themselves in the hopes of speeding up the process, but bear in mind that you’ve worked with specialists who know how to carry hard or heavy products correctly without putting themselves or your products at risk.

Parking distance from the property

It may 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 fill, which will cost you more.

Set up any licenses or parking access in advance if you can. Whether that means applying to the council for licenses or talking with your neighbours about blocking their driveway, the more you plan, the simpler it will be.
Do not forget this applies to the home you’re moving into, as well as the one you’re leaving– making or blocking the road life challenging for your brand-new neighbours isn’t going to make the best impression.

Disassembly and reassembly

Verify ahead of time how much disassembly and reassembly will cost– don’t presume that those extra services are included in your quote.

You can, of course, pick to disassemble items yourself and cut the costs, however if you are worried about doing this, it’s best to leave it to your removals firm and just shoulder the additional cost.

As this is an extra service, constantly keep in mind to reserve it beforehand. 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 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 items like garden furnishings 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.

Remember likewise that some products can’t actually be moved by removals firms– open cans of paint, fertiliser, specific chemicals and plant pots typically will not be accepted. Other items can be moved by removals firms but may need upkeep or preparation in advance– for example, if you desire a removals firm to transport a lawnmower, it requires to be empty and relatively clean. Be sure to check what conditions your removals firm will require you to meet for the transportation of products like these.

Other unanticipated items

Are there products in your loft or basement that you plan to take with you? Frequently 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 before getting a removals firm to do a survey. That way they’ll have a clear concept of precisely what they’re dealing with, and there will not be any nasty surprises on moving day.

High value products.

If you’re intending 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 products that are both hard to carry and high in value (like a grand piano), it’s going to cost more. It may also be something that your removal team can’t manage, and may need a professional with particular devices.

Packing services

It often is worth the extra money to leave the packing to the professionals if you’re moving from a large property. Paying for a packing service suggests that your products will be expertly loaded, less most likely to break and you won’t need to buy lots of boxes. This can be an outstanding service to make use of if you’re short on time or individuals to help. Bear in mind that it is constantly an extra expense.

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

Bear in mind also that some products can’t actually be moved by removal firms– open cans of paint, fertiliser, certain chemicals and plant pots typically will not be accepted. Other items can be moved by removal firms but might require maintenance or preparation ahead of time– for example, if you desire a removals firm to carry a lawnmower, it needs to be fairly tidy and empty. If you’re planning on moving items that have a higher worth, you might find that your removal company does not have insurance 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.
