When It’S Worth Hiring Expert Movers (And When It’S Not).

You’ve been clearing your clutter and evacuating your products, however your removal price quote was more expensive than you expected. Here’s what impacts the expense of a move, and what you can do about it.

What could make my home move expense more?

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

We suggest asking your removal team for getting a ‘removal study ‘, where a member of the removal group will come and examine your home. By doing this they can see just just how much stuff you have and can properly approximate 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 impact on the expense 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 spend for the extra time, or the removal business will employ more people to accelerate the move, but you’ll pay for a larger team.

It is among those unfortunate things that can’t truly be avoided. Some individuals might want to attempt and take a lot of the products downstairs themselves in the hopes of accelerating the procedure, however remember that you have actually employed professionals who understand how to bring heavy or tough items effectively without putting themselves or your items at risk.

Parking distance from the property

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

If you can, organize any permits or parking access ahead of time. Whether that suggests applying to the council for licenses or chatting with your neighbours about blocking their driveway, the more you prepare, the much easier it will be.
Do not forget this applies to the residential or commercial property you’re moving into, along with the one you’re leaving– blocking the road or making life tough for your new neighbours isn’t going to make the best impression.

Disassembly and reassembly

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

You can, obviously, pick to disassemble products yourself and cut the costs, however if you are concerned about doing this, it’s best to leave it to your removals firm and just shoulder the additional expenditure.

As this is an extra service, constantly remember to book it in advance. 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 home, it’s so easy to forget the garden and miss it out from your quote. Additional items like garden furnishings or a shed loaded with tools is immediately going to increase your expenses.
Exercise in advance whether you plan to take specific structures (greenhouses, sheds, play houses, climbing frames) with you when you move, and whether you’ll be dismantling them yourself.

Keep in mind also that some products can’t truly be moved by removals firms– open cans of paint, fertiliser, specific chemicals and plant pots typically won’t be accepted. Other items can be moved by removals firms but may require maintenance or preparation in advance– for instance, if you desire a removals firm to transport a lawnmower, it needs to be fairly clean and empty. Make certain to examine what conditions your removals firm will need you to satisfy for the transport of products like these.

Other unexpected items

Similar to with the garden, when getting a removals estimate individuals don’t think of the unseen items Are there items in your loft or basement that you intend to take with you? Are your cabinets packed full, or exists storage under your bed? Typically if it’s out of sight, it runs out mind, but that can truly cost you when it concerns removal.

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

High worth products.

You might discover that your removal business doesn’t have insurance that covers it if you’re planning on moving items that have a higher worth. 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 might require an expert with particular equipment.

Packaging services

It in some cases is worth the additional money to leave the packing to the experts if you’re moving from a large home. Spending for a packaging service means that your products will be expertly loaded, less most likely to break and you won’t need to purchase great deals of boxes. If you’re short on time or people to help, this can be an outstanding service to use. Bear in mind that it is constantly an extra expense.

Either it will take longer to move everything, so you’ll pay for the additional time, or the removal company will employ more people to speed up the move, but you’ll pay for a larger team.

Bear in mind also that some items can’t actually be moved by removal firms– open cans of paint, fertiliser, particular chemicals and plant pots typically won’t be accepted. Other items can be moved by removal firms but may require maintenance or preparation in advance– for example, if you want an eliminations company to carry a lawnmower, it needs to be empty and relatively tidy. If you’re preparing on moving items that have a higher worth, you might find that your removal company does not have insurance coverage that covers it. If you’re moving products that are both hard to transport and high in worth (like a grand piano), it’s going to cost more.
