When booking ensure the company you are dealing with is a member of a reputable, trade organisation and that you have a landline telephone number.
Beware of online or telephone quotes, you will be charged EXTRA for EVERY item you did not list!
It's impossible for you to know exactly how many boxes or "square foot" you require moving, especially weeks before you move! On moving day its difficult for you to negotiate a fair price as you are stuck with the company you have booked.
These companies are often removals brokers, the movers they book for you will be from out of town with no reputation to protect. In some cases ALL the quotes supplied will be from the same organisation under three different names.
Ask any removals company to provide proof of insurance, its so easy for an uninsured company to claim to be "fully insured" Any member of our staff visiting your home will be pleased to show you certificates of insurance and proof of current trade Memberships.
The moving bit:
If possible secure an area of road or car park outside your office for the removal truck to park. Use your own car, traffic cones or dustbins. Try and do the same at your new location.
Don't use old boxes, they become weak. Boxes should weigh about 20-30lbs each.
Don't use masking tape as its not strong enough, use packing tape.
Give yourself plenty of time to pack, it takes longer than you expect.
When it comes to finding that item you need urgently you will be pleased you did.
