Over the years I have come across a number of myths and misconceptions that people have about moving house. Here are some of the most common:
• You cannot speak to a removal company before you have a firm date for your move. While this is ideal, there is no harm in getting quotes from removal companies before you have a moving date agreed. Ensure that you pick reputable companies that are registered with the British Association of Removers (BAR).
I know that more and more people are choosing to rent rather than buy a property these days for a variety of reasons. There can often be a problem when a tenancy comes to an end, though – the state of the property!
I am constantly hearing about concerns around the security of personal and confidential data. Whilst many people are rightly worried about access to online data, it should not be forgotten that we all deal with a wealth of hard copy information on a daily basis.
Most people have heard horror stories of people whose house move went horribly wrong. Unfortunately most cases seem to be the fault of the removal firm.
So how can you find a firm that you can rely on to do a good, professional job at a competitive price?
