Moving House FAQs

Below, NKA Removals have put together a list of common questions that are asked regarding removals.

Is there a reason I should avoid moving on a Friday?

Although a weekend move will sound appealing and may be the best option timewise, as most people may not be busy on weekends, it is one fo the worst days of the week to move house.

Some companies may even charge extra to move on this day, and if you experience any delays – you might have to wait until Monday to rectify issues.

How far in advance should I book a Removals Company?

As soon as possible. Seek suggestions, quotes and any referrals from friends and family members who may have recently moved.

We’ve helped you speed up the process of how to choose a removals company in one our blog posts.

How long will my removal take?

It is difficult to generalise how long a removal will take as it will vary for each person.

It is important to enquire about estimated delivery times and loading and unloading.

If I am moving quite far, what happens if the trip cannot be done in a day?

The logistics of any long distance move will need to be confirmed with your mover before the day of the move.

Ensure that you discuss this with your chosen removals company and figure out a schedule that suits both of you.

Bear in mind that if you use a removal company local to the area you are moving away from, they may be able to pack most of your items the day prior to the move, collecting a few items early the following morning and travelling down to your new home.

What other services are available from removal companies?

Many removal companies will offer a variety of services that go hand in hand with the removals.

Is it a good idea to do the  move alone?

It will be hard work to tackle a move alone, especially if you are doing it alone. However, in some situations, it can be more cost effective.

We’ve created a post that covers the benefits of hiring a removals company to help with your move.

How can I cut costs?

Cutting the cost of your move is fairly simple. One of the ways you can do this is avoid moving on a Friday, another way is packing your items yourself – should your removals company offer a packing service.

Another way to cut down costs is to declutter and sort through your belongings when packing. More often than not you will find some of the items you are packing you won’t need, or you haven’t used for a while.
