Hiring a removals company in Leicester: Here’s what you need to know!

removals leicester

Whether you are moving homes or offices in and around Leicestershire, it is always worth investing in a removals service team to help you with the job. Especially if you are moving from a flat that requires multiple trips up and down the flight of stairs, because, obviously, the lift is always out of order!

So to help you make the decision, we’ve put together our top reasons as to why you should hire a removals company!

Expert packing

Even though you may think packing a load of boxes isn’t that difficult, but what you don’t realise is there is an art to packing fragile items, to ensure they remain in the perfect condition you leave them in. The removals team are trained to pack any item, no matter the size, weight and condition.

Plus they also carry all the right materials to pack such as strong tape, bubble wrap, wrapping felt etc. It’s important all your items are securely packed to avoid any damage during transit.

On time delivery and collection

Once you have chosen a removals company, it is always best to agree on a date and time and discuss everything you need to know about what will happen on the day. This way there is no time wasting on the day and your removers can just get on with the job. The type of things you should discuss are:

  • Dates/times/location
  • Any items that require special packing such as antiques
  • Difficult to move items
  • Any items that you plan to move your self
  • Floor plan of the new property so they know exactly where everything needs to be dropped off
  • Any items you are not planning on taking with you such as old sofas etc

Storage option

If you decide to want to move your belongings in stages, or if you are moving to a new office and don’t want your furniture delivered whilst it is still being decorated, then you can opt to store the items in a safe storage unit. Most removals companies will offer storage facilities so it’s worth finding out before you decide to book a removals company.

Storing your items will give you the extra time and space to decorate your new home/office, and it will also give you the freedom to leave your old place, so you no longer have to continue paying the rental fees.

The service provided by Bell and Sons was second to non. The removal men were so friendly and so accommodating. Moving house is a stressful process, we can 100% say that the actual move day wasn't. The removal men from Bell and Sons took away all the stress. Fantastic service and I would highly recommend them. We have personally used them four times now and never had a problem.
