Removal companies – how to choose the best one?

DSC_3941Every now and then any of our friends happen to ask this important question –

“How’s business going?

With so many removal companies in London, why would a potential customer choose you?”

To tell the truth, though this question might seem a bit difficult to answer at first sight, in fact it is not. Yes, there are way too many removal companies in London, but hey, do not forget that London is a 10 million people city, one of the most populated cities in the world. And given the high frequency of changing living and/or office location of its citizens it is not so hard to guess – yes, there is plenty of work for removal companies.

Each day there are tons of people moving to a new home, managers relocating offices and newcomers looking for a better place to live – all of them having piles of belongings needed to be moved.

We live in the 21st century, and finding information now is far easier than ever before. Nowadays prior to finding a contractor for any service – in our case – removal service, most, if not all, potential customers look for information on the Internet. They browse for removal service reviews, shared opinions, detailed explanations of service procedures and measure all their findings. In just a few hours an experienced Internet user would have made a shortlist of removal companies with good reputation and affordable price. And here is the catch – how to choose the best removal company for your specific needs? Read on to find the answer.

Let’s assume you’ve already made your shortlist of removal companies to contact for a consultation and quote. Before you proceed make sure you’ve checked the following very important information for the moving firm:

  1. Is the company member of any professional or service guarantee association?

For example, Best London Removals is a proud member of the National Guild of Removers and Storers, as well as CheckaTrade reputation company – a absolute proof of the good reputation and highest level of service provided.

  1. Does the moving company have a “face”?

You have found the removal firm on the Internet – that is OK. But it’s not the company that you talk to and that you intend to trust – it’s the real people working there. If you cannot virtually meet the team (like here for example) – then it might be too much of a risk to work with such an anonymous business.

  1. Is the removal company insured and how?

Let’s be honest – sometimes there are problems and something might go wrong. The important thing is to know that these problems would not go on your account – a removal company that values its customers should be insured for all risks – like Best London Removals is. With the insurance company to backup, both movers and clients might concentrate on the job.

  1. Are there any independent reviews of the removal service of the company?

There are enough sites that offer business listings and most of them publish reviews of people who have used these services. A good company would never be outside of these review sites – the more positive reviews are out there – the better. Again Best London Removals is proud to be one of the most highly rated removal companies in Removal Reviews website – check for yourself.

And to get back to the initial question –  – here is the short takeaway:

Choose a removal company that is a member of professional associations, that is not anonymous, that is insured and has positive independent reviews of its service.

And have fun with your removal!
