Hiring a removal company - what you need to bear in mind

Ad - Corona has led to the country being trapped in rigidity. Short-time work, no events and no holidays have slowed the country down. But the lockdowns are over, the labour market is picking up again. Just as the labour market is picking up, more movement is coming back into the property market. New jobs lead to the need to move to a new city. But starting families also makes people look for new four walls.

A removal service is needed. But what should you look for when choosing? We explain!

A local removal company?

It makes sense to hire a removal company that works locally. If necessary, they will be familiar with the local authorities, for example, when it comes to applying for a temporary loading zone at the municipality.

So if you are looking for a removal company in Sindelfingen, you should also look local. The same applies to removal companies in Böblingen.

Especially if a provider comes from abroad, you should be careful. Poor accessibility if a claim and disputes under a foreign legal system can cause you to completely lose the money you saved by incurring additional expenses and even end up paying on top.

These are the characteristics of a good removal company

Let's take a removal company from Stuttgart as an example. Here it quickly becomes clear what you have to offer as a service provider to be able to hold your own against competitors on the market. This is also in line with my personal experience with other removal companies. First, the service must be professional. By this I mean that the work is carried out cleanly and without damage to the transported items. The packing has to happen in such a way that my household goods arrive undamaged. Furniture is disassembled gently and reassembled appropriately on site. Especially when it comes to the kitchen, this is something you want to avoid doing yourself.

Of course, a professional move costs money. A few "henchmen" can also do the job. But consider the insurance cover. If something breaks, you will be stuck with the costs. A professional removal company is insured and can compensate you for the damage should an employee have a mishap during the move.

It is important that the customer also supports you as much as possible. Plan how the furniture will be placed in the new house. Good removal companies will support you with appropriate advice. After all, a successful move is more than just packing all the furniture into the lorry and somehow setting it up again at the destination.

In summary, a professional removal company saves time and nerves. Especially if you are not (any longer) physically fit, a reliable service provider is worth its weight in gold.
