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 spend for the extra time, or the removal company will hire more individuals to accelerate the move, however you’ll spend for a larger team.

It is among those regrettable things that can’t truly be prevented. Some people might wish to attempt and take a lot of the items downstairs themselves in the hopes of speeding up the procedure, however keep in mind that you have actually hired experts who understand how to bring tough or heavy products effectively without putting themselves or your items at risk.

Parking distance from the home

It may not be your fault, but if the removal team 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, set up any authorizations or parking gain access to ahead of time. Whether that indicates applying to the council for permits or chatting with your neighbours about blocking their driveway, the more you prepare, the simpler it will be.
Do not forget this applies to the property you’re moving into, as well as the one you’re leaving– making or obstructing the roadway life hard for your new neighbours isn’t going to make the very best first impression.

Disassembly and reassembly

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

You can, obviously, pick to take apart products yourself and cut the costs, however if you are worried about doing this, it’s best to leave it to your removals firm and simply shoulder the extra expense.

As this is an extra service, always remember to book it in advance. 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 home, it’s so simple to forget the garden and miss it out from your quote. Additional items like garden furniture or a shed loaded with tools is instantly going to increase your costs.
Work out ahead of time whether you prepare to take certain structures (greenhouses, sheds, playhouses, climbing up frames) with you when you move, and whether you’ll be disassembling them yourself.

Bear in mind also that some products can’t actually be moved by removals firms– open cans of paint, fertiliser, particular 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 desire a removals firm to transport a lawnmower, it needs to be relatively tidy and empty. Be sure to inspect what conditions your removals firm will need you to satisfy for the transport of items like these.

Your best option is to clear your clutter before getting a removals firm to do a survey. That way they’ll have a clear concept of exactly what they’re working with, and there will not be any nasty surprises on moving day.
