Find helpful advice for your move:
When booking a removal company through Compare My Move you have the option to select a number of different additional services including packing, dismantling and storage. This guide contains an outline of the services offered by our house removal companies so that you can easily add them onto your quote.
Packing for a house move takes a lot of time and effort, and not everyone can take the time off work or out of their busy lives to do it. Packing requires delicate handling and you don’t want to risk damaging your items.
Professional packers are trained to pack and move your items with minimal risk of damage. To calculate the price of packing services, the movers will consider the time it takes them to pack your house up, the type of packing materials used as well as the difficulty of the job.
When it comes to dealing with fine art and more valuable items that are awkwardly shaped, you can also use custom-built wooden crates to fit them.
Not only will they help pack up your items and move them, but your removal company also offer unpacking services. For a fee, they will put boxes in the right rooms, unpack and get rid of any leftover packing materials.
Furniture like beds, wardrobes, tables and desks need to be dismantled before being moved. If you lack experience in dismantling furniture, you should use professional movers to minimise the risk of damage to your items, as well as injury to yourself if you try lifting them. Make sure you discuss exactly what needs to be dismantled and reassembled beforehand so you know exactly what the charges will be.
Items like pianos, pool tables and hot tubs are extremely heavy and often quite valuable, and will require professional moving services to help to prevent damage to them or injury to yourself. If you need to move any such items fill in the special requirements field on our form.
For whatever reason, you might not be able to move your items into your new house yet, either because the moving date has changed, or you simply can’t fit all your items in yet. Many of our removal companies offer secure storage facilities for you to keep your items for any length of time, again for an additional charge.
