How to plan your house removal?
Start planning your house removal 3 or 4 months before the moving date. There are three aspects of a comprehensive removals plan; things you must do before moving, on the move day, and once you moved. Here are some of the important points that may help you to make a relaxing relocation ahead.
- Searching for the right removalists: Numerous remover firms are in the market, with that much choices, it is a challenging decision to go ahead with a specific company. Do proper research about various companies knowing their competitive rates, the reviews, and the policies. Compare the data for all firms and opt for the one that suits you the best.
- Decluttering the house: Start decluttering the house right from the beginning. One may live at a place for a long time, and the mess gets on collecting unnoticeably. It would be very difficult to separate the valuables from waste near the removal day. Therefore, be precise as what to take, sell, or throw away. Somethings would be quite visible, while others are seen during collecting and packing. Start from the obvious electronics or equipment and go all the way to the very little things.
- Redirecting the mails: Many people do not consider the importance of redirecting your mails and transferring the records. You may have been living in one place for a very long time, it would be difficult to inform all your contacts about the new place you are going to reside in. Even though you inform your contacts, it would take them some practice and time getting used to sending the emails at a new address. Meanwhile, if you do not want to lose any of the letters, contact your post office and ask them for a mail redirect service. It would not take 1 or 2 weeks, so proceed accordingly.
- As the day arrives, make sure everything is rightly packed and labeled or not! As the man with a van arrives at your gate, be gentle and conscious to supervise all the proceedings. Get all the packed items loaded under your surveillance as to be sure nothing is stolen or damaged. Once, everything is loaded nicely, check out whether all the gas or electric switches are turned off or not! Leave the keys to an obvious place so that newcomers won’t get any difficulty finding them. Make sure, you have paid the bills if any necessary documents are required, hand over them to the owner. You can also take screenshots of the paid bills as to be extra cautious, in case of any false claims.
- There must be a responsible person at a new place either it is you or someone on your behalf who can receive the van and supervise the staff unloading and placing the items to the right rooms. Once, the belongings are unloaded, count all the boxes to check whether anything is missing! You also have a certain period in case of any damage to claim back.
How to estimate the cost to be spent on house removals?
Removals costs are dependent on various factors. You can make a fine estimate considering these details.
Size of house: Size of a house is directly proportional to the cost of the removals. Bigger the size of a house more will be the moving price. The size of house consequently relates to the size of valuables that require shifting. Living in a single bed or 2-bed house will cost you much less while moving as compare to the 4-bed or 5-bed sized house. A large house requires more time to be evacuated.
The volume of valuables: Volume relates to the capacity of a mover van. The goods to be transported are measured in cubic meters, and the measurements are contrasted with the available space inside the van. Thus, things are placed accordingly. Following house size and the distance between pick up and destined sites, the volume is also directly proportional to the plausible move cost. More cubic meters will end up for more expenditure. Removal companies in the United Kingdom, especially calculate the volume opposite to the American mover companies which focus on the weight of items to be transferred. If the belongings are packed inside removals boxes, the volume of boxes will be measured.
Distance: As per size and volume, the distance between pick-up point and the destined place is also directly related to the removals estimate. More distance will consume more time as well as more fuel, hence the cost is raised. Some companies have fixed a distance percentage value for a fixed mileage. For example, let’s say they offer you a rate for 260miles, the price will add up for a certain percentage of the original cost crossing that limit. This way, the distance adds up to the budget.
Moving time: The cost also depends upon the time and season you pick on to make your move. House removals at weekends and month-ends are way too expensive than normal days. Likewise, moving near special occasions or holidays as National days, Christmas and other festive days will cost you a much higher price. Not only the season, but usual time consumed in making a complete removal is also involved. Even though some companies may charge for the whole project, however, most of the companies charge hourly. Depending upon the situations, more hours spent will raise the overall cost.
Accessibility: Even though you have a small house, and a small volume of the things to be removed, still the cost may rise given the accessibility to the van is not proper. For example, if the things are to be collected from an upper story, the expense and difficulty with elevator may add up deciding the final cost. Likewise, if the parking is not available, of if the streets are not wide enough to let the van in, the removal van will be parked at some place distant from the gate of the house. Hence, the compensations for such situations will go straight on the client’s head.
