Compare removal quotes and save up to 70% on your removals today!
We’ve been helping movers hire removal companies for over 10 years now. In fact, we’ve helped over 750,000 UK movers save on their removal costs. From a decade of collecting feedback from you, we’ve learnt a thing or two about the benefits of hiring a company.
After speaking with our customers, almost every time they said their removal company saved them time and stress, especially when it comes to packing and heavy lifting. Our removal firms will not only have expert knowledge on how to pack fragile and delicate items, but they’ll also use the essential protective equipment.
A common trend among our feedback on hiring a company is the ability to save money. Users love to compare quotes for the companies and pick the cheapest or most appropriate. Hiring a removal company will also save on your fuel costs as it's typically included in the removal quote.
Why should you get a removal quote?
Why should you get a removal quote?
Once we've matched you with removal companies in your area, it's up to you to choose which company you want to use. Here's what you should look for:
1. Check reviews
Make sure you view the company's impartial and unfiltered reviews on their partner profile we send you. You can get an idea of how they performed in previous jobs as well as getting a feel for the company.
2. Ask about other services
We'll highlight any extra removal services they offer on their profile page, but it's still important to talk to the company about what you need. Extra services our partners offer include packing, furniture dismantling and storage.
3. Check they offer a pre-move survey
A pre-move survey is vital in getting an accurate quote for your removals, so make sure they can provide this. Many of our removal companies offer a free pre-move survey, either in person or via video call.
4. Ask about cost
Ask the company for their preferred method of payment before the move. Trusted removal companies will let you pay with card or cheque.
Removal costs will vary depending on distance, location and extra services, but our data shows the average cost is £1,181. This is the average total cost to move a 3-bedroom house travelling 50 miles in the UK.
On top of the removals fee of £826, this price includes £250 for a packing service and £125 to dismantle furniture.
It's always important to discuss all costs with your chosen removal company so there's no chance of any hidden fees. Compare My Move's service allows you to compare up to 6 removal company quotes so this should help you get the best deal for your move.
You should aim to get your free no-obligation quotes once you know your completion date. If you can work out a rough date of when you’ll need a removal company, you can start getting quotes even earlier.
Comparing quotes from a range of removal companies in advance of your move will help to avoid disappointment. Many moving companies get booked up early on, especially if it’s during peak season.
Whether you need a full removals service or are looking for small removals, getting free quotes in good time will keep you on track for a smooth move. For further help on when to book services, read our Moving House Checklist.
Many of our removal partners provide extra services to choose from that make for a seamless move:

When do I pay the removal company?
Most removal companies will ask for a deposit 5-7 days before the move. You will pay the rest after the move.
How to keep removal costs down?
Comparing a few quotes for your move will help you to pick the best price and save money. Making the most of free packing materials can help save on some packing costs too.
How to stay organised on moving day?
Rest assured, your removal company will do all the hard work on moving day. Stay organised by keeping a bag of essentials on you at all times.
What will removal companies not move?
Removal companies will not move dangerous items such as fireworks or petrol. They also won't move perishable foods, pets or plants.
Is it worth hiring a removal company?
It's worth hiring a removal company to save you time and stress. Although it can be expensive, they'll be experienced and trained in handling your items to minimise damage.
Is a 'man and van' service enough?
The van might not be suitable or large enough for a house move. A 'man and van' service may not offer packing or storage options like most removal companies.
Are there Trade Associations for movers?
The British Association of Removers is the leading Trade Association for removal companies in the UK. Many of our partners are BAR members.
Where will they park?
You'll need to make sure there is access for the removal company to park and get to your home. If they can't access your home on the day, you may face extra charges.
Do estate agents recommend removal companies?
It's more common for estate agents to recommend conveyancing solicitors as they usually take a commission.
