Reasons you shouldn’t wait until you have exchanged contracts, to get your Removal quotes in.

Removal firms like any other business have busy and less busy times of year and we have all been told to “avoid Fridays” and “don’t move at the end of the month ” as they are busy therefore more expensive. Supply and demand drives this I’m afraid, there is a limited supply of trucks and qualified teams of men, ergo price goes up.

What they don’t tell you is, if you are in a chain, unless you are the driver of the train, you will  be TOLD when you are moving and  that is when it will be.

More and more now, the time between exchange of contracts and completion is getting shorter and shorter. 30 years ago it was a set period of six weeks between exchange of contracts and completion so you had plenty time to call around and make an appointment for the chap from the local removal company to come and they would give you a price there and then. Today it is not unusual  to have just a week! This in not enough time to get someone around never mind get a quotation.

I have always said, people know where they live, they know where they are going, (within a few streets) the only variable  left is when. You can get your quote in without knowing exactly  when you are going and if the removal company has your details on file it is just a matter of a phone call to get booked in with your mover of choice, getting one step in front of the rest of the chain.

Remember do you really want to end up with a man and a van?
