Factors to Consider When Getting Quotes from Removal Companies SW6

22 July 2014

Finding the right removal company for your SW6 move might seem like an uphill struggle. There are a myriad of companies operating in the area, and knowing which one is right for you can be difficult, and you will have to spend some time researching potential companies before you even consider getting quotes. Below are some tips on finding a reliable SW6 removals company, and what you should consider when getting quotes from them.

Word of Mouth

One of the best places to start gathering information on local removal services is through your friends, family and work colleagues, especially if you know someone who has recently moved into or out of the SW6 area. It may be the case that someone you work with has contacts or association with local companies, which can often be ideal as you may even be able to get a discount. Regardless, you should be able to get some valuable insight when it comes down to which companies to avoid, and which are generally regarded as the best in the area. You can then use these as your starting point, and find some additional options through your own research.

Where to Look

The local phone directory is an obvious and often good source of SW6 removal companies, but the internet is also a great option, as you can not only look for local companies here, but check their websites and search for customer feedback to get a much better overall idea of how the company operates and how good they are. Ideally, when looking for feedback, try independent removals or consumer forums, as these will generally give you a much more honest picture of customer satisfaction and experiences. That said, you should also keep in mind that people are often more likely to post about negative experiences, so if you do feel a company you have considered is not being accurately represented, you can find out for certain using the next tip.

Calling for Quotes

You should aim, after all your research, to have a handful of Fulham removal companies that you are considering, and these are the ones you should call for estimates. Before doing so however, make sure you are completely clear on what your moving requirements are going to be. If you need any extra services, such as packing or storage, don’t forget to mention these when you ask for a quote. Also, make sure when calling that you ask if there are any additional charges not present in the quote, as this can save you from any nasty surprises later on. You can generally gauge how friendly and reliable a company will be from initial telephone contact too, so if you have a good feeling about a company, or conversely a bad one, then go with your instincts for peace of mind if nothing else.

Avoiding Scams

Once you have quotes from the companies you have chosen, you should have a much better overall picture of the situation and the costs involved. One thing to be on the lookout for however, are companies that offer you very low quotes. This could indicate a scam, as some less scrupulous companies offer low quotes to secure business, then ramp up costs during the move. The general rule of thumb is if it seems too cheap or good to be true, it probably is.
