Finding a reputable home removal company can be the most stressful part of moving house. Use this checklist to ensure you use a company that will take the very best care of your valuables… and you.

There is much to consider when you’re moving home. You have to think about when, where, and how you’re going to move. On top of that, you need to know who is a reputable home removal company.

Looking into using a professional removal service can definitely help to ease the stress of moving. However, there are some things to take into consideration when choosing the right home removal company for you.

4 Top Pre-Requisites for Choosing a Home Removal Company

Licenses And Insurances

You should never under any circumstances use a moving company that doesn’t have any insurance or the correct licenses to prove they are a reputable company.

When researching different companies, ask about their insurance and exactly what it covers. You don’t want to use a company that won’t cover you for any damages that occur to your belongs during a move, especially if you have anything valuable. Also check if there are any limits to their insurance. You don’t want to find out, too late, that their cover isn’t for the full replacement cost of your items.

It’s very easy for anyone with a truck to claim they are a moving company. However, they should have the relevant licenses so make sure you see these before committing to anything. Only the companies who have both of these are legally bound to protect your goods, so it’s highly important you use the correct type of service. 


Often when moving it becomes essential to use some sort of storage. Some moving companies will provide a storage solution however it is often the better option to look at different solutions yourself.

If you’re planning on moving a fair distance away from where you are now then look at storage options. Arrange for a moving company to collect your items and deliver them when you need them.

When looking at storage make sure you allow adequate room for your items. A good home removal company will be able to help you decide what size unit you require. 

Customer Reviews

As with most services or products that we buy, it’s a good idea to look at previous customers reviews when choosing a moving company. They are the only people who have had first-hand experiences with the company.

You can learn a lot from looking at reviews online. Carefully consider the good and the bad experiences and also take note of how the company has dealt with any bad reviews they have received. Have they just ignored them? Or have they tried to rectify the problem?

It may be that the problems have been rectified in a timely manner and with a reasonable solution. So the bad review isn’t as bad as it seems.
