uShip puts you in control over picking a removal company for your home and the removal services you specifically want. Home removal transporters provide quotes for your removal. When the price meets your budget, or you're happy with the savings, simply agree to the price and begin collaborating with your house movers.
CREATING YOUR HOME REMOVAL LISTING
List your removal with as much detail as you can. Be sure to include required dates or a time frame for your removal, a list of large and small items to be moved, number of boxes, measurements of all large furniture, photographs, and the level of service required. A detailed listing allows for a more accurate removal quote on your delivery and reduces the chance for surprise costs on removal day.
Remember that moving hazardous materials, such as household cleaners, oil and gas, require a special permit. Talk to your chosen removal firm about transportation of these items before the removal.
REMOVALIST SERVICES OPTIONS
Whether you are moving across the street, across the country, or internationally, with uShip you'll find home removal service providers that can help you every step of the way - from the packing phase to the unloading phase and everywhere in between. You are in control of what services you need to make your move as painless as possible. You have options when you move. Knowing these options will help you determine which service is best for you move.
White Glove Removal Services will handle everything for you, from disassembling furniture and packing up your home to assembling and setting up your furniture exactly where you would like it in your new home. Traditional home removal services, or self-service removalists, will help you in loading and unloading your items on each end of the move but they will not assist in packing or set-up. Another moving service you may consider is the use of a freight service. While this method may be the cheapest option, it is not highly recommended for home removals.
WHAT DOES A HOME REMOVAL COST?
The cost for home removal services in the UK varies based on the distance and size of your removal. On average home removal services cost £1.47 per mile to move 50 miles or more.

TOP TIPS FOR A SMOOTH REMOVAL DAY
Work with your home removal firm to set a proper removal date before you have accepted their bid. Keep your removalist informed of all date changes.
Provide your removalist with an accurate estimate of the amount of your belongings that you will be moving. This way, they will send the right size lorry for the job and keep the process moving along smoothly.
Keep essential paperwork with you during the move. You may need to refer to them, so keeping them close by is a good idea. Having them in your own care will also keep these valuable papers safe.
If possible, make arrangements for your children and pets so that you can focus on your home removal.
