What does a removal company do?

Aside from loading and transporting your belongings, moving your office or house, removal companies offer many other different services that can cater to your moving needs. These removal services commonly have an additional cost on top of the rates charged by the removal company.

Storage, organising, packing and unpacking are the most common services that removal companies offer. If you do not want to go through the time-consuming activity of packing yourself, the professional movers will do this on your behalf. Depending on the company, the price may or may not include packing materials such as tapes, boxes and wrapping.

What are the things to consider when booking removal services?

How much does it cost to use a removal company?

It’s not a case of one size fits all when it comes to the costs associated with a removal & storage company. There are a number of factors that need to be considered such as; the distance to the new property and the type of properties you are moving to and from, how long the job will take and of course, the size of the move. A removal company usually charges approximately £400 to move items from a one-bedroom property and around £1,000 for a four-bedroom property. If packing is added, you can expect to pay between £150-£400 or more, depending on your property. It’s very important that you brief and analyse your chosen removal company thoroughly ahead of moving day, making sure that they know as much as possible about what you will be moving. Hiring an experienced and trusted moving company like Cotswold Carriers is the best option. Call Cotswold Carriers now to learn more about their services.
