There are many things to think about when you are moving house, and with the costs of the solicitors, agencies, surveyors and the rest being so high, you’d be forgiven for never wanting to pay another penny on the move. However, if you want to make things easier and for everything to go smoothly, then you’ll be needing a great deal of experience on your side. How else are you going to be able to predict problems and solve them before they happen? How else will you be able to get a sofa down a spiral staircase without marking the walls or the sofa? Moving companies Richmond can save you the hassle, as they have all the ability, manpower and experience needed to make your move look like a breeze rather than a chore. If you are feeling like you can’t find the funds to afford the extravagance of a full sized Richmond removals company, then you should perhaps be looking into the ways in which you can make it all a little cheaper, as well as the potential financial aspects of doing things by yourself…
Whether you need a removals company depends on the size of your place, and the amount of stuff in it. If you have a larger than four bed flat, or a house with more than three rooms, then you are likely to need one, though it depends on each circumstance, so we can’t give you a straight answer. You could have a palatial two bedroom apartment, with loads of furniture, that would almost definitely need a removals team, or you could be sharing in a four bed, but the rooms are all small, so people’s stuff could fit into a hired van. Either way, you need to take a look at the job, and be realistic about your abilities in getting everything out to a van, and then out of the van and into the new place. Think about the stairs and doorways involved, as these can be a massive burden when trying to get large and heavy items through. Do you think you could do it all without smashing up the place?
If you are still unconvinced by the removals team idea, maybe you should look into the costs, by getting a quick quote? The internet and various websites on it can give you rough estimations of the cost of your Richmond move, which should give you a pretty good idea as to what you will be spending in the long run. You can also get this price down by shopping around and haggling a little, so the first quote you get shouldn’t put you off, until you’ve looked at a few others. Knowing exactly what you need, and booking really early will mean that you can get the price down a fair amount as well.
If you are going to do everything yourself, then put some thought towards the potential consequences of the process. The cost of the actual transport will be a lot less than the cost of a removals team, as a man and van service starts at fifteen pounds per hour, which can be really cheap if you are doing a short move. There will however be rather more substantial costs if things are dropped and broken and need to be replaced. Moving furniture can also damage the walls when scraped, and when things go wrong, people can fall and be crushed by larger items, all of which will cost a phenomenal amount to get sorted out!
