Are you moving to a new town or further afield? A reliable removal service can help make moving home less stressful, and you shouldn’t underestimate the amount of organisation it takes to move your belongings to a new property.
At Stokes Removals we offer a range of removal packages for moving property, storing items and packing services for businesses and domestic users.
Here are the most important factors we think you should consider when choosing a company to help you move to your new home.
Get a List of Removals Quotes
One of the first steps when moving house should be putting together a list of quotes from different companies, we recommend that you gather between four to five quotes. When getting a quote for your removal, it will depend on the distance and time of year that you are moving. To keep the cost low, we suggest avoiding school holidays! During this step, it is important that you know exactly what is included in every quote that you receive. For example, some companies offer packaging materials and others will charge you extra for this. You will also need to think about the value of your belongings and check what level of insurance they can provide you with during your move.

You will then be able to compare the cost from each company, making it easier to decide which company to choose.Continue reading
