What are the benefits of booking a home survey?

If you need a quote for your home removal, we always recommend booking a home survey with us so we can see exactly what needs to be moved. You might think it’s just easier to tell us over the phone or by email. Whilst this might be the quickest way to get a rough idea, we have listed all of the benefits of a home survey in this article.

Meet face-to-face

We fully understand that picking someone to move your belongings involves a certain degree of trust. The easiest way for you to get to know us and how we work is by meeting us face-to-face.

It’s also a lot easier to fully discuss your removal requirements during a home survey. The visit usually lasts around 20 minutes, but we do allot a full hour to your appointment. This gives you time to ask and questions and go through any concerns about the move. It also gives us time to go through our different removal services so you can learn more about these.

More accurate removal quote

When trying to remember everything you have to be moved over the phone or email, it can actually be difficult to include absolutely everything. During the home survey visit, we will methodically work around your property, including lofts, sheds and garages. We’ll also take a look at your outside spaces where we can discuss things such as whether we can take your plants or garden ornaments.

If you might like to opt for our dismantle or packing services, then by us taking a look at exactly what you have to be moved, we can ensure everything is included and quoted for.

We can also provide advice for packing and moving particularly delicate or awkward items that we couldn’t provide without being able to see.

No nasty surprises on moving day

Your home survey will be conducted by a trained surveyor. This means that when you get your quote you can be rest assured that everything has been taken into consideration and allowed for. In terms of moving day, this means that the correct size van(s) will arrive, an adequate number of men, and the proper moving covers and equipment will be provided.

Legally your current property will need to be vacant by midday. If our team are not fully briefed and prepared with what they need to do/bring then this can lead to delays and disruptions.

Furthermore, when we visit your property, we can provide a fixed cost for the move. If you send us your inventory online or over the phone, we can only provide an estimate. This means that you may incur unexpected costs on moving day, which isn’t ideal for anyone.
