You have actually been clearing your mess and evacuating your items, but your removal price quote was more pricey than you expected. 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 attempt and make sure you get an accurate quote when utilizing reallymoving, but there are always going to be a few scenarios that can add costs to a home move.

We advise asking your removal team for getting a ‘removal study ‘, where a member of the removal team will come and evaluate your home. By doing this they can see just how much things 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 few things that can have an effect on the expense of your home move:

Being on a high flooring without any 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 factors. Either it will take longer to move everything, so you’ll spend for the extra time, or the removal company will hire more individuals to speed up the move, but you’ll spend for a bigger group.

It is one of those unfortunate things that can’t actually be prevented. Some individuals may want to attempt and take a lot of the items downstairs themselves in the hopes of speeding up the process, however remember that you’ve employed experts who understand how to carry challenging or heavy products correctly without putting themselves or your products at risk.

Parking distance from the home

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

If you can, set up any authorizations or parking gain access to beforehand. Whether that implies applying to the council for licenses or chatting with your neighbours about obstructing their driveway, the more you prepare, the easier it will be.
Do not forget this applies to the residential or commercial property you’re moving into, as well as the one you’re leaving– obstructing the roadway or making life challenging for your brand-new neighbours isn’t going to make the very best first impression.

Disassembly and reassembly

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

You can, naturally, choose to take apart products yourself and cut the costs, but if you are concerned about doing this, it’s finest to leave it to your removals firm and simply take on the additional expenditure.

As this is an additional service, constantly remember 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 taking a look around your residential or commercial property, it’s so easy to forget the garden and miss it out from your quote. Extra products like garden furnishings or a shed full of tools is immediately going to increase your costs.
Exercise in advance whether you plan to take certain structures (greenhouses, sheds, play houses, climbing frames) with you when you move, and whether you’ll be disassembling them yourself.

Remember also that some products can’t actually be moved by removals firms– open cans of paint, fertiliser, particular chemicals and plant pots frequently won’t be accepted. Other products can be moved by removals firms however may require maintenance or preparation ahead of time– for instance, if you desire a removals firm to transfer a lawnmower, it requires to be empty and relatively tidy. Be sure to check what conditions your removals firm will require you to meet for the transport of products like these.

Other unforeseen items

Are there items in your loft or basement that you mean 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 prior to getting a removals firm to do a survey. That way they’ll have a clear idea of exactly what they’re working with, and there won’t be any nasty surprises on moving day.

High value items.

You might discover that your removal company doesn’t have insurance that covers it if you’re preparing on moving products that have a higher value. If you’re moving products that are both challenging 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 manage, and may need an expert with particular equipment.

Packaging services

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

Either it will take longer to move everything, 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 likewise that some products can’t actually be moved by removal firms– open cans of paint, fertiliser, specific chemicals and plant pots often won’t be accepted. Other items can be moved by removal firms however may require maintenance or preparation in advance– for example, if you desire an eliminations firm to transport a lawnmower, it needs to be relatively tidy and empty. If you’re planning on moving products that have a higher worth, you may find that your removal company does not have insurance that covers it.
