Moving to London can prove to be a hectic experience for people from most other areas of Britain. This is because moving to a big city often makes people confused and gives them an illusion that things are moving too fast out of their comfort zone. Therefore, while it is very possible for you to simply move your own house from one place to another by simply hiring a container truck, it is suggested that one opt to hire a removals Uxbridge company for moving to London. If you’re in Windsor, there are several companies around the place that offer top notch services. Here are a few things you must know about a company before you hire them:-
Are they BAR accredited?
BAR stands for The British Association of Removers, and hiring a company that is a member of the BAR means that they have been accepted by the association as a company that offers a decent minimum standard of service. Also, it means that in the event something goes wrong on part of the removers, you are entitled to compensations as well as a full refund of your deposit from the association. Therefore, it is important for you to know that your removal company is part of the BAR. If it is not, ask why that is so. If the company cannot give you a good reason, then the obvious reason is probably that they have not been accepted. In that case, consider a different company.
Do they offer insurance?
This is a several thousand pound question. A lot of things can go wrong during your move, starting from individual household effects being stolen or misplaced to your entire carriage being faced with an accident in transit. Therefore, it is of utmost importance that you make sure your service is insured. Standard insurance coverage includes claims of up to 35 to 40 thousand pounds. Good removals Uxbridge Company would not require you to apply for insurance separately.
Ask for references
A good removals company would definitely have reviews and testimonials or at least a couple of references to previous satisfied customers to show you in order to convince you that they are good at what they do. Ask them for how long they have been providing their services and make sure that they have had several removal jobs previously before you allow them to have access to your things.
How long will it take?
Ask them how exactly the work would be carried out in a detailed time schedule. Let them give you the number of days it would take them to clear your house, how long it would take for your things to arrive in London, how many crew members will be at work, etc. You need these numbers to fully plan your move and make sure things remain right throughout the process. Good removers would have a time-schedule pre-planned which they would follow in order to go about the whole thing in an organised and professional fashion.
