Contacting your remover

Steve Webber, Director of Maidmans Moving & Storage has many years’ experience in the moving and storage industry. Mrs K asks, “when is the best time to contact our remover?”

Steve says: “Before contacting a removal company, you need to think about why you are contacting them. It may be to obtain an initial quotation to help you calculate your moving costs. You may also want information on storing items during the move, or information about packing services.”

“Every removal company will be happy to pop out and give you an idea of the overall budget for your house move. This will be a free quotation and you need not feel an  obligation  to  use  the  company.”

“If you are looking for a firm fixed quotation, invite an experienced surveyor to your home to assess exactly what you will be taking with you, what needs putting into temporary storage and if any items will need specialist dismantling and re-assembling at your new home.

Steve says: “Contacting your removal company for a local move about a month in advance is ideal and will give you time to have the removal quotation sent to your home, to discuss any issues and to plan for the move date. When moving to Europe or further you should make contact earlier to ensure all documentation and time scales are considered”.
