Selecting a professional removals company

It is highly recommended to use a professional removals company rather than moving everything yourself, unless you have only a few possessions. But how do you choose an authentic and trustworthy removals company?

One method would be to find a company that is affiliated with Move Assured, Compare My Move or Handyman Reviewed. Merseyside Movers & Storers is featured on all three of these organisations’ websites, indicating that we are among the most reliable removal companies in Merseyside and beyond.

A good removal company will offer competitive quotes without any concealed charges or taxes. If you want the removals company to pack your items for you, this will cost extra. It also helps to have removals insurance to cover unforeseen delays, in the unlikely circumstance that there is loss or damage of valuable possessions during the move.

If the chosen firm cannot visit your home before moving day, you need to provide them with an accurate list of items to be transported. The consumer group Which? provides a useful briefing form for removal firms at:

You can use this form to list essential information such as moving date, old and new addresses along with a list of everything that needs moving. Be sure to note delicate objects that require special packaging.

Heavy objects like pianos should also be itemised alongside bulky furniture including wardrobes and couches. It is a good idea to list smaller objects that you are taking with you, so they do not accidentally end up loaded into the removal van.
