If you are about to move house, you will likely be worrying quite a bit about your decisions as to the best removals company for your needs. Doubt will likely plague your dreams as you toss and turn all night worrying that you may have made the wrong choice... Or not. It’s easy to get overly worried about these things, but they should not take up too much of your life if you are aware of the ways in which to get the best from your movers. The important thing is that you can carry on with your normal day to day, as if you were not moving house at all, so prevent yourself from turning into a massive nutcase around the time of the move and have a look at our tips and tricks to making sure that your removals company is right for you!In terms of getting the best from your movers, you should make sure that you choose correctly in the first place. This will be with the help of online reviews sites, where previous customers will be able to upload reviews of the companies that you look up, so that you can get a god idea of the quality of service that they will deliver to you. You will want to find a company who consistently deliver a good service, with little to no record of lateness or laziness. You may well find that there are a couple of anomalies in the midst of good reviews, which will often have been caused by certain uncontrollable events, like traffic or accidents etcetera. These sorts of things are fairly unavoidable, so if a previous customer gets angry that the team didn’t turn up on time, but a hundred others were extremely pleased, then it is likely that you do not need to worry too much. Having found out how each company rates against its competition, you will be in a position to try and get a decent price for the service that you think would suit you the best. When you have found the company that you are sure will give you the best service, or if you have found a company for a good price, then there are still things that you can do in order to make sure that you are getting the best from them. For instance, doing a comprehensive set of preparatory talks will put you in a great position in that you can demonstrate both how you want the move to go, as well as the fact that you will be taking no nonsense from them. While you should be strong in your views as to how things should be going ahead, you should not be pig headed about the whole thing, after all, you have hired the company partly for their experience! Monitoring the team while the move day is going ahead and reporting to the head of the company anyone who looks to be slacking off will mean that you become a bit of a feared figure in the job, which can be a double edged sword. Sometimes it will whip the job into shape nicely, and mean that no one dares cross you, but it can also swing the other way and make the team despondent to your wishes, as they feel like you are a bit of a back breaker in terms of your demands. You want to keep everyone onside, so keep relations personal and try not to single out anyone or embarrass them. It’s all about being firm but personable.
