Moving the furniture, be it your house or your office, can be one tiring job that can exhaust you mentally and physically. Before it takes the physical power out of you, it takes a toll on your mental strength as there is tons of stuff to figure out and infinite factors to be considered. It is no surprise that the cheapest way to move furniture is by lending the helping hands of your friends and family but is it really worth it? We reckon it isn’t. You may get the work done in the cheapest way possible but there are several hidden risks. Your furniture can be damaged if not handled professionally and if worst comes to worst, a loved one of yours can get seriously injured. It is highly recommended that you instead hire a professional removalist with adequate experience and versed skills.
The removalists, with the passing time, have been gaining considerable limelight for their impressive work in the field. For a long time, we have been relying on ourselves for moving the furniture. Our dads, granddads often refuse the services of a removalist for some weird unknown reasons. But why risk it anymore when you can get everything done with minimum risks and maximum benefits? All you need to do is hire a company that costs less than others but isn’t far behind in terms of expertise.
How will you decide what is the cheap way? Almost all of the removal companies offer a free quote when you give them all the information. These quotes do not cost you anything so you can get an estimated price from several companies for free. Then there are the comparisons where you can compare their prices, experiences, insurance packages, etc. Once you find a company that gives you the cheapest quote and doesn’t lack any other skill, Voila! That’s where you stop the search.
Hourly Rates V/s Full Quote
Everyone wants to get big bucks and there is no harm in that. Similarly, removal companies have their own way to do so. There are often two methods of quotes: Hourly basis or Full quote. You can either pay them on basis of the hours they work or you can pay them a lump sum amount that they ask for the entire procedure. According to our experience, hourly rates are the best option in such scenarios. As the removalists are professionals, they are capable of doing the job much faster than anyone else. It would basically mean that they can get the work done in just a few hours and it will not cost you much either.
While you’re enquiring about prices, make sure you get all the information you can. There are many removalists out there who have hidden costs that they will not tell you about till later on. For an instance, when you have finalised the deal, you will, later on, get to know about the additional charges of packaging. You cannot do anything about these as you will have to pay extra for them. To avoid this, you would need to get a full and final quote and ensure there are no concealed costs anywhere.
