You’ve been clearing your mess and packing up your items, however your removal estimate was more costly 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 expense more?

We work really difficult with our removal partners to try and ensure you get a precise quote when utilizing reallymoving, but there are always going to be a few scenarios that can include costs to a home move.

We suggest asking your removal group for getting a ‘removal survey ‘, where a member of the removal group will come and examine your home. By doing this they can see simply how much stuff you have and can accurately estimate how huge a van you’ll need and how big a group.

Arrange Your House Removal Dublin


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

Being on a high flooring 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 reasons. Either it will take longer to move whatever, so you’ll spend for the additional time, or the removal business will work with more people to accelerate the move, but you’ll pay for a larger group.

It is one of those unfortunate things that can’t actually be avoided. Some people may want to take a lot and try of the items downstairs themselves in the hopes of speeding up the process, but keep in mind that you have actually employed professionals who understand how to carry heavy or tough items appropriately without putting themselves or your items at risk.

Parking distance from the residential or commercial property

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 pack, which will cost you more.

Organize any authorizations or parking access in advance if you can. Whether that indicates applying to the council for permits or chatting with your neighbours about blocking their driveway, the more you plan, the much easier it will be.
Do not forget this applies to the home you’re moving into, in addition to the one you’re leaving– making or obstructing the road life hard for your brand-new neighbours isn’t going to make the best first impression.

Disassembly and reassembly

Validate ahead of time just how much disassembly and reassembly will cost– don’t presume that those additional services are included 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 take on the extra cost.

As this is an additional service, constantly remember to schedule 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 items

When looking around your home, it’s so simple to forget the garden and miss it out from your quote. Extra products like garden furniture or a shed loaded with tools is immediately going to increase your costs.
Exercise beforehand whether you prepare to take specific structures (greenhouses, sheds, play houses, climbing frames) with you when you move, and whether you’ll be disassembling them yourself.

Remember likewise that some products can’t really be moved by removals firms– open cans of paint, fertiliser, particular chemicals and plant pots often will not be accepted. Other products can be moved by removals firms but might require upkeep or preparation beforehand– for example, if you desire a removals firm to transport a lawnmower, it requires to be fairly tidy and empty. Be sure to inspect what conditions your removals firm will require you to meet for the transport of products like these.

Other unexpected items

Similar to with the garden, when getting an eliminations estimate individuals do not think of the hidden products Are there products in your loft or basement that you plan to take with you? Are your cabinets stuffed full, or exists storage under your bed? Frequently if it’s out of sight, it runs out mind, but that can really cost you when it pertains to removal.

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

High value products.

If you’re moving items that are both challenging to transport and high in value (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 equipment.

Packing services

If you’re moving from a large property, it sometimes is worth the additional money to leave the packing to the experts. Paying for a packaging service indicates that your products will be expertly packed, less likely to break and you will not have to buy great deals of boxes. This can be an outstanding service to make usage of if you’re brief on time or people to assist. Bear in mind that it is always an extra cost.

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 speed up the move, but you’ll pay for a bigger team.

Bear in mind also that some products can’t actually be moved by removal companies– open cans of paint, fertiliser, certain chemicals and plant pots typically won’t be accepted. Other items can be moved by removal companies however may need upkeep or preparation ahead of time– for example, if you desire an eliminations firm to carry a lawnmower, it requires to be empty and fairly clean.
