uShip makes furniture removal easy with just three steps!
1 | Create Your Listing
The starting point is to think about the size and weight of any piece of furniture you want to move. It’s best to be as close to accurate as you can possibly be, and you also need to think about how quickly you need your items to be moved. In addition to this, you also need to inform your proposed furniture courier about the type of service you are looking for. Most companies offer several different options, so you need to explore each one in turn.
The most common services available when it comes to furniture transport in the UK are standard and white glove. White glove delivery services in the UK basically mean that extra care and attention is paid to your furniture, and that the transporter will pick up the item, transport it, deliver it to your chosen destination, and then assemble it back to the state it was in previously. This is the quality standard of services. The regular standard service means that your furniture will still be looked after to a high level, but it will be transported in a crate or trailer, depending upon the size and weight. You will also need to assemble it back together yourself in this case. If your furniture is already crated, you might like to consider another removal service, called Less Than Truckload, or LTL.
2 | Choose the Best Furniture Courier Services
Once your listing is submitted, you will receive quotations from various furniture movers in the UK. These companies are bidding against each other to win your custom, so you get the best price around. You can then contact the ones you're interested in working with, and ask any specific question you might have. This helps you build up a trust bond.
Every furniture collection and delivery service in the UK we work with as a profile on the uShip website. This will document their overall history, safety information, as well as a section for customer testimonials. This means you can get the honest review on what the company is really like. You will also see photographs of the equipment each company uses to carry out their work, and this will help you build up an overall picture in your mind. In addition, this page will tell you about the insurance level the company carries. You might want to think about adding your own cargo insurance onto this, to give you the ultimate level of protection.
