Moving house can be expensive and it can seem there’s one cost after another. When you’re on a budget, it’s understandable that people try to find the cheapest deal possible when booking a removalist. Unfortunately, if you settle for a super budget removalist then you often get what you pay for which can lead to bigger issues on moving day. Today, we’ll be looking at some of the issues that can come from opting for cheap removalists.
Common issues with cheap removalists
Damage to furniture
When you choose cheap and inexperienced removalists, you could risk damage to your furniture. Loading a removal truck efficiently while ensuring that all of the furniture is adequately protected is a bit of an art form and when done incorrectly damage can easily occur during loading and unloading and in transit. When you’re paying bargain basement prices, you can’t expect a high level of care.
Lack of experience
Cheap removalist companies often have a high turnover of staff due to low wages and this means that an inexperienced team will often turn up on the day. Not only can this result in damage to furniture, it can also mean that the process is much slower compared to an efficient and experienced company.
At the very least, you want a removalist who is reliable and guaranteed to turn up on the day. When you hire a cheap removalist, you’re often not going through a reputable company and could find yourself in a situation where your removalist is late, has issues with their truck, or just doesn’t show up at all.
Lack of insurance
A big problem that can often come of choosing a cheap removalist is that they don’t have the right insurance cover in place. This is because they need to cut costs elsewhere due to their low prices. Without insurance in place, if something happens to your items while in transit you can’t be confident that you’ll be compensated financially.
Removalists you can trust
To avoid choosing a low quality removalist, it’s important that you find a trustworthy removalist who fits with your budget. Take the time to find a legitimate removalist who has a proper website with reviews and testimonials so you can get a sense of prior customer experiences. When you get a quote, confirm that you’re receiving a full service without hidden costs and always ensure they have insurance.
