Get the Best Removal Services Around
Whether you’re moving into a new home or relocating your office, finding a reputable service to help you with the transition is not always easy. With so many companies on the market claiming to provide a high quality and thorough service, how do you know which one is right for you?
At Purdie Worldwide, we understand that picking a company you can trust is not a decision to be made lightly and many factors need to be considered before making a finite decision. Below, we look into the two main types of removal services on the market today and identify key factors that need to be considered when selecting a business to assist you.
Hunting for house movers
Moving home is arguably one of the most stressful times in one’s life. Your head is filled with concerns about things like credit scores, deposits and viewings and it can often seem like there is no end in sight. Finding your dream home can be an uphill struggle, so hiring a moving service to make the process as easy as possible can take a big weight off your shoulders. But how do you find a company that will suit your requirements? Here are some of the main factors to consider before settling on a moving company that is right for you.
How big is your property?
When seeking a relocation service, it’s important to think about the size of your property and the amount of items you need transported. Although many businesses are able to accomodate moves of any scale, there are some that are more specific in what they are equipped to handle. For example, if you are moving out of a three storey five bedroom property, a company that specialises in 1-3 bedroom home moves is not going to cut it. Peruse a company’s website extensively before making a decision and if the information provided is unclear, give them a call! It’s always better to be safe than sorry.

What house removal services do you require?
The finer details really are key when it comes to booking in your house move. Many of the top companies now provide a service that supports you through your journey from beginning to end. It’s a common misconception that moving companies simply transfer your personal items from one location to another; this is by no means the extent to what these businesses can offer. Below are just a few of the extra services that many companies now provide:
- The dismantling and reassembling of furniture: Taking apart and building furniture can be a fiddly and frustrating task, so why not leave it to the professionals? If you hire a company that is fully trained in the art of furniture building, your house will begin to feel like a home in no time.
- Packing and unpacking: When you move property, no sooner have you packed up all your belongings than you find yourself unpacking them all again. This can seem like a demoralising chore, but with a prepped team of experienced movers on the job, you will find that this process runs smoothly and efficiently.
- Storage facilities: If you need somewhere to store certain items before, during or after your move, there are many moving companies that now offer this as an add-on service.
- Packing material and supplies: If you’re moving house with larger or more delicate items, hire a service that supplies specialist packing materials. Check out the selection of house packing materials we sell here at Purdie Worldwide.
Moving house is inevitably going to take its toll on your finances so paying for additional services may seem like an unnecessary expenditure. However, many companies can tailor their services to their customers’ requirements and budgets, so why not find a company that offers a flexible service and start negotiating?
Browsing for business relocation services
The second of the two primary services offered by moving companies is commercial and office removals. Relocating your business can be a demanding and daunting time and the ‘to do’ list can seem never ending. Why not minimise disruption to your business and hire a team that specialises in office moves? We have highlighted some of the key questions you will want to be asking when picking a moving company for your business.
Do they provide specialist materials to transport your equipment?
We understand that expensive office equipment needs to be handled and transported with care. That’s why at Purdie Worldwide, we provide specially designed removal crates to ensure your move goes without a hitch. When researching local removal companies in your area, make sure the service you choose has the resources needed to do the job.
Can they manage a large scale move?
Similarly to moving home, the size of the space you are moving out from and into is a crucial consideration when relocating your office. For example, a small startup company may be equipped to manage a move of 20 members of staff rather than 200. Explore the company’s website and perhaps even give them a call to be sure that they can handle your project.
Will they dismantle and reassemble office equipment?
Companies that specialise in relocating offices will often be able to provide a team of staff that are not only fully trained in building furniture, but also setting up IT equipment. With a team of professionals ensuring a smooth and speedy move, your business can be back up and running in no time!
Questions on Quality
When you’re leaving your personal items in the hands of others, a quality service is something you need to be able to count on. At Purdie Worldwide, we pride ourselves on our ability to supply a service that keeps our customers coming back again and again. We are also proud members of the BAR Commercial Moving Group; a sign of our dedication to quality and professionalism. We have compiled a short list of ways to assess whether or not a company is up to your standards.
A great way to suss out a company’s reputation is to read their customer reviews. These are written by people who have experienced the company’s service first hand, so who better to trust?
Word of mouth
If you have a close friend or family member who has recently relocated, why not see how they got on with their moving service? Getting a glowing recommendation from a trusted source can give you the confidence you need to make the right choice.
Look at how local removal companies describe themselves on their websites
It’s safe to say that every business on the market will be using their website as a platform to shout about the positives of the service rather than the drawbacks. However, it is interesting to find out exactly what aspects of the service a company deems to be the most important. For example, if a website talks about specialist packing material but fails to mention anything about customer service, this may not be something the company has much regard for. Find a company that shares your values and make sure you’ve truly picked one of the best moving companies around.
