4 Vital Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Moving Company!

Most people only move a handful of times in their lives, so it isn’t easy to keep track of the moving industry’s ins and outs. Nevertheless, choosing the right moving company is crucial for the whole process to be cost and time-effective. When selecting the best moving service for you, you should be looking at a straightforward approach, proper equipment and many years of experience. To find the removals company best fitting your specific needs, here are four questions you should ask them first.

How many years have you been in the moving industry?

Start by asking about the history of your potential moving companies to get a sense of their service. Some moving companies have been in business for a very long time! While a long history is not a guarantee of high-quality service, it can help you gauge a moving company’s expertise.

Are they a member of a professional industry body, such as the British Association of Removals? 

To avoid moving scams and rogue movers, make sure to ask whether the moving company is properly licensed. BAR is the trade association for removal and storage services in the UK.

Do they have excellent and recent testimonials and Customer Reviews?

Do You Provide Packing or Storage Services?  

Find out how items are protected and labelled and if they proved export wrapping. Most companies will be able to provide boxes, wrapping paper and bubble wrap. Make sure you keep an up-to-date list of all your things, number of boxes, single pieces, and odds and ends.
If you require storage, ask the company if they provide the service. Usually, the larger companies do, which can save you time and money by having the truck drop off your items for you. It’s a good idea to check out the storage facility beforehand.
