Moving home can be a daunting task. Not only are you moving all of our personal belongings from one home to another, but Moving Home will take up a chunk of your budget. So how much does a home removal cost and how much should you budget for?
What's the Average Home Removal Cost?
The cost of Moving Home will always vary, with an array of factors that will contribute to a final price. Firstly is the size of the property. Although not a guaranteed indicator of the volume to be moved, the costs outlined below are good estimate of what you should be paying depending on your house size. All estimates don’t include our packing service and assume the distance traveled is less than 20 miles.
What Removal Services Do You Need?
As a Professional Removal Company we offer several additional services that the traditional man and van cannot offer. Your home removal cost will vary depending on the services you require.
- Assembly & disassembly of furniture
- Packing and unpacking as well as specialist crates etc for high value items
- Temporary Storage (no time limit on length of storage)
- Parking Suspensions (yes, we can even arrange for special parking dispensation for your move)
- Packing Supplies (order online and collect in-store, or have them delivered!)
The main reason we always try to do a 1-to-1 Survey, or a Video Survey, is to get an idea of the volume of goods to be moved. This gives us a much better guide for an accurate home removal cost. However, if someone is a minimalist, then their 3 bed home might only have 500ft³ to move.
However in comparison, we’ve had some 3 bed homes that have been full to the brim, with over 2500ft³ to move. Not only would we need 2 different sizes of vans for each of these 3 bedroom moves, we may need additional staff for the higher volumes. Therefore, the cost of your move can vary a lot depending on what you need moved. That’s why we always recommend a pre-removal survey before giving out any prices.
As a member of the British Association of Removers (BAR) we always require payment upon the booking of your removal. However, there are certain situations than can result in additional home removal costs.
For example, if your keys are delayed by your solicitors, then you may have to pay overtime costs for the removal men, and potentially even storage costs if you can’t move in there and then. That’s why we offer a Late-Key-Waiver on most house moves. For a set fee this allows our removal teams to work on without any additional home removal costs! So be sure to make sure your removal company offers you this, or you’ll need to factor in additional home removal costs should things not go to plan.
Also be sure to have read the terms and conditions of your move, with particular importance on their cancellation policy. If you cancel your move then there may be cancellation costs involved. These costs depend on how far in advance you have cancelled. However, the bonus of our terms and conditions is such that if your move falls through 10 days prior to the commencement day, a full refund will be given with no penalties or deposits taken.
