Moving home can quickly become expensive, but by saving money and using cheap but reliable services local to Swiss Cottage, as well as making some savings by doing as much of the preparation and packing yourself as you can, you can make sure moving to a new home doesn’t drain your bank account too severely. There are a few other steps you can take in addition to finding a cheap Swiss Cottage removal service, and these are listed below.
Do your own packing
Many removal companies will have packing services that you can hire in addition to the standard removal service, but this will be an additional expense. It makes sense to save on this area and do the packing yourself. Not only can you get packing goods very cheaply, but if approached correctly the packing will not be too much trouble at all. If you start early, by packing things that are not used very often and work your way up to the essentials as moving day approaches, you will have most of the packing done well in advance. You can also pick up packing boxes for free from most local grocers or supermarkets in the Swiss Cottage area.
Maximising your service
Although a cheap removal service will go a long way to keeping moving costs down, making sure you get the full value from your movers is another way to cut back on costs. The best way to do this is to know what your moving needs are before contacting any movers. If for example, you are moving a long way from the Swiss cottage area and expect your relocation to take a few days or more, you will get the most value from a fully-fledged removal company Swiss Cottage, as they generally charge by the day. Smaller moves more local to Swiss Cottage however, are more suited to smaller companies or ideally man in a van services, as these will only charge you by the hour and your move is unlikely to take longer than a day at most.
Choosing a cheap removal company
While the overall cost will depend on the kind of service you require (removal company or man and van), by following the above tips you will already be making savings on packing services and making sure you are getting maximum value from your movers. When researching any potential Swiss Cottage companies, there are a couple of other useful things to bear in mind. First of all, ask around friends or family that are local to Swiss Cottage, and get recommendations from them, if they have any, on the best and cheapest local Swiss Cottage movers. You can also check the local telephone directory and the internet. In order to keep your costs down, try to plan your move for a weekday – this will lower rates for most movers, as they charge more at weekends because they are a more popular time to move home.
Once you have found at least 3 companies you like the look of, give them a call and get some estimates. It can be preferable to call because you can not only relay any special instructions to a member of the company directly, but will get a sense of how professional and able to deal with your move they are too. Finally, if you’re searching for a cheap service, you should keep an eye out for any potential scams. Sometimes, a less than reputable removal company or Swiss Cottage man and van will give you a very low estimate in order to secure your business. They will then add additional charges once you are in the process of moving and can end up costing you a lot more than you thought. To make sure you don’t fall victim to this, check that any company you are considering is registered with the British Association of Removers.
