Packing Tips & Loading Guides

You’ve been clearing your mess and evacuating your products, but your removal estimate was more costly than you expected. 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 certain you get a precise quote when using reallymoving, but there are constantly going to be a few circumstances that can add expenses to a home move.

We recommend asking your removal group for getting a ‘removal study ‘, where a member of the removal group will come and assess your home. This way they can see simply how much things you have and can properly estimate 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 floor 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 everything, so you’ll pay for the additional time, or the removal business will work with more people to accelerate the move, however you’ll pay for a larger group.

It is among those unfortunate things that can’t really be prevented. Some individuals may wish to attempt and take a lot of the products downstairs themselves in the hopes of speeding up the process, but bear in mind that you’ve employed specialists who understand how to carry heavy or difficult products effectively without putting themselves or your products at risk.

Parking distance from the property

It may 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 fill, which will cost you more.

If you can, organize any authorizations or parking access ahead of time. Whether that indicates applying to the council for authorizations or talking with your neighbours about blocking their driveway, the more you plan, the much easier it will be.
Don’t forget this applies to the residential or commercial property you’re moving into, as well as the one you’re leaving– making or blocking the roadway life difficult for your new neighbours isn’t going to make the very best impression.

Disassembly and reassembly

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

You can, obviously, select to disassemble products yourself and cut the costs, but if you are concerned about doing this, it’s best to leave it to your removals firm and just carry the extra 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 wind up paying more.

Garden products

When browsing your home, it’s so simple to forget the garden and miss it out from your quote. Extra items like garden furniture or a shed loaded with tools is instantly going to increase your expenses.
Work out in advance whether you prepare to take particular structures (greenhouses, sheds, playhouses, climbing up frames) with you when you move, and whether you’ll be disassembling them yourself.

Remember also that some products can’t really 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 however might require upkeep or preparation ahead of time– for instance, if you desire a removals firm to transport a lawnmower, it needs to be empty and fairly clean. Be sure to check what conditions your removals firm will need you to meet for the transportation of items like these.

Other unanticipated items

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

Your best choice 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 will not be any nasty surprises on moving day.

High value items.

If you’re intending on moving products that have a greater value, you may discover that your removal company doesn’t have insurance that covers it. If you’re moving products that are both challenging to transport and high in worth (like a grand piano), it’s going to cost more. It may likewise be something that your removal group can’t manage, and may need a professional with specific equipment.

Packing services

If you’re moving from a big home, it often is worth the extra money to leave the packing to the professionals. Paying for a packing service suggests that your items will be professionally packed, less likely to break and you will not 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 people to speed up the move, however 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 won’t be accepted. Other items can be moved by removal firms but might need maintenance or preparation beforehand– for example, if you want a removals company to carry a lawnmower, it needs to be empty and relatively clean. If you’re preparing on moving items that have a higher value, you might find that your removal company doesn’t have insurance that covers it. If you’re moving items that are both challenging to carry and high in value (like a grand piano), it’s going to cost more.
