HOW TO PREPARE FOR FURNITURE REMOVAL
First, take pictures and measure the dimensions of the furniture to be moved. Then decide if you want to pack it yourself or let the furniture courier handle it (white glove). Then create a free listing, get quotes from customer-rated removalists, and book your delivery with a furniture removal company that fits your needs.
HOW MUCH DOES FURNITURE DELIVERY COST?
The cost for furniture delivery in the UK will vary depending on distance and the type of furniture transport you choose. The average cost to transport furniture less than 50 miles is £2.28 per mile. For greater distances, the average cost is £0.61 per mile.
FURNITURE REMOVAL OPTIONS
You'll need to decide what method you'd like to use to transport your furniture. Furniture is typically transported either as freight or by White Glove Movers. Whether you are moving a dining room table, antique clock, sofa, or your favorite chair, you can have the item moved by a furniture removal company or hauled as freight.
Freight is usually the least expensive way to transport your furniture, though if you are shipping furniture overseas, your furniture will travel as sea freight.
While transporting your furniture as freight can save you money, you will also be responsible for packaging, loading, and unloading your furniture yourself. If this does not sound like something you want to be responsible for, or if you do not have time to arrange for freight transport, you will want to use a white glove furniture courier. White glove couriers offer door-to-door service and are responsible for packaging, loading, unloading, even assembling your furniture. White glove movers will handle everything for you from start to finish.
