When To Start Packaging For A Move

You’ve been clearing your clutter and evacuating your products, but your removal price estimate was more pricey 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 cost more?

We work very difficult with our removal partners to try and make certain you get an accurate quote when using reallymoving, but there are constantly going to be a couple of circumstances that can add costs to a home move.

We advise asking your removal team for getting a ‘removal survey ‘, where a member of the removal team will come and assess your home. In this manner they can see simply how much things you have and can properly estimate how big a van you’ll need and how huge a team.

Arrange Your House Removal Dublin


Here are a few things that can have an impact on the expense of your home move:

Being on a high flooring with no 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 work with more people to speed up the move, however you’ll pay for a bigger group.

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

Parking distance from the residential or commercial 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 fill, which will cost you more.

If you can, set up any authorizations or parking access in advance. Whether that means applying to the council for authorizations or talking with your neighbours about blocking 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, in addition to the one you’re leaving– obstructing the road or making life hard for your brand-new neighbours isn’t going to make the best impression.

Disassembly and reassembly

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

You can, obviously, choose to take apart items yourself and cut the costs, however if you are concerned about doing this, it’s finest to leave it to your removals firm and simply shoulder the extra cost.

As this is an extra service, always remember to book it beforehand. Otherwise the timings your removal team will have exercised will be wrong, the move will take longer and you’ll end up paying more.

Garden items

When looking around 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 costs.
Exercise 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.

Keep in mind likewise that some products can’t truly be moved by removals firms– open cans of paint, fertiliser, specific chemicals and plant pots frequently will not be accepted. Other items can be moved by removals firms but may require upkeep or preparation ahead of time– for instance, if you want a removals firm to transfer a lawnmower, it requires to be relatively clean and empty. Be sure to inspect what conditions your removals firm will require you to meet for the transportation of items like these.

Are your cabinets stuffed full, or is there storage under your bed? Often if it runs out sight, it runs out mind, however that can truly cost you when it pertains to removal.

Your best option is to clear your mess before getting a removals firm to do a survey. That way they’ll have a clear concept of exactly 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 higher value, you might find that your removal company does not have insurance that covers it. If you’re moving products that are both challenging to transfer and high in worth (like a grand piano), it’s going to cost more. It might likewise be something that your removal team can’t manage, and might require a specialist with specific devices.

Packing services

If you’re moving from a big residential or commercial property, it often deserves the extra money to leave the packing to the professionals. Spending for a packing service implies that your products will be expertly packed, less likely to break and you won’t need to purchase lots of boxes. If you’re short on time or people to assist, this can be an exceptional service to use. Nevertheless, remember that it is always an extra cost.

Bear in mind likewise 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.
