You are moving house or office and now you want to hire professional packing and moving services. But, how do you pick the right team, how do you know they will work to the highest standard and how do you avoid an unpleasant experience? We have some top tips on picking the best team for the job.
Client Feedback – Actions speak louder than words. When choosing your team, check the customer feedback as they have actually experienced the services provided. The Nations Movers have a 100% customer satisfaction rate so all of our reviews are 5*.
Insurance – You should always ask what level of insurance a packing and moving service has. You need to know how protected your belongings are and whether to arrange extra cover. Our services are fully insured for goods and transit. You can also spot scammers disguised as removal companies if they are not clear on insurance or do not have any.
Accurate Surveys – It is very important that the moving service knows exactly how many belongings you have to move. By not having an accurate idea the vans could be too small or you may find yourself being charged if you have extra items. Make sure you have a survey. Keep a record of the contents in each box for yourself because this will help you to notice if anything is missing.
Clarity On Services – When you choose a package it should be made very clear to you what is included. Is disassembly and reassembly included? Are they providing packing materials? If you and the company communicate properly then you won’t get caught out with additional charges or have the process held up. Clarity is key.
Check Social Media – Social media platforms are the perfect place to see more reviews, learn more about the company and see photos of them at work. You can hear from customers, ask questions, and more. If you want to see more about a company than just its website, places like Facebook are a great place to start. If you notice that their website is not professional or they have no social media presence, this could be a red flag.
Friendly, Informative and Transparent – When approaching a company for packing and moving they should have those three qualities. A friendly team is easier to work with throughout the process. You also should be able to ask questions about insurance, how long they have been working in the industry, how the move will work, and if they are a BAR member. If they are well informed and transparent then chances are you are on to a winner.
Those are some of the ways that you can find the best service providers. If you put some of these into practice then your move will be less stressful and more exciting. Not only that but you can avoid costly extra charges and avoid scams too. We are proud to say that The Nations Movers ticks all the boxes and this makes us one of the best professional packers and movers in London.
