Our top tips on how to save money on furniture removal costs from the experts.

Do you want to save over 50% on your removal bill? It really is quite a simple strategy actually and typically comes down to being prepared, packed and ready to go on moving day. A removal job will take much longer if the customer’s possessions are not packed up and ready to go. You can save significantly on your removal costs by being ready for us on the day.

1. Declutter

Packing can be a very time consuming process, but the secret is to start your preparation and packing as early as possible. Start with a major de-clutter: get rid of all that rubbish you have accumulated over the years. They say that if you have not used something for over a year then throw it out. Move to your new home with a fresh outlook and unencumbered by useless stuff.

3. Save money and pack yourself

Weeks before the removal you have the time to sort out and then either throw out or box-up your possessions for the removal. If you leave the packing to us then we will not have the luxury of time to sort things out and we will simply pack everything in a one day blitz.

Taking packed boxes down to the garage will save further time on the removal day.

4. Too busy to pack yourself?

We understand that some customers are too busy or unable to pack themselves. We offer a moving house packing service that will save time and reduce any stress involved in self-packing.
