There are many factors to consider when choosing your removal company and while you might think we’re just saying this – we’re not, we promise! – Price isn’t everything.
Please keep reading! I’ll explain!
By that I mean that price (be it high or low) doesn’t necessarily tell you everything you need to know to make an informed decision. It’s all about value for money. There are many factors that are equally if not more important including experience, trust, reviews, recommendations and just the general feel that you get from a company.
And let’s think about it for a second here – moving, actually in the grand scheme of moving, works out to be the least expensive part. Yet we’re the ones who look after all of your worldly belongings. So you want to make sure that they’re looked after properly and you’re happy to entrust your belongings to the company you choose.
The reasons for moving house are weird and wonderful and vary from move to move, person to person and house to house – or flat to flat! (But that’s another story for another day – I shall look forward to writing that one!) So it makes sense to think that the removal company that’s right for one person may not be right for another. Just like a good pair of jeans for example – I like the skinny fit jeans from H&M; my mum thinks skinny jeans are a work of evil and prefers classic boot cut Levis – in short, different people need and like different things.
The best piece of advice I can give to you is to take your time deciding. It’s stressful enough moving house without feeling rushed to just pick someone. You shouldn’t rush into basing your decision on just one factor alone. Take a deep breath, grab a cup of tea and talk it over with your partner, a parent, a friend or anyone whose opinion you trust.
Do not fear though, help is at hand!
Get your quotation in advance and take the time to find out who makes you feel the best. Research the companies, read their reviews and chat to the staff. We deal with moving every single day and you want to make sure that whichever company handles your move, they make you feel happy, confident and calm.
Things to look for!
In all honesty though, choosing a removal company, or a storage company, or even just choosing where to get your cup of coffee from in the morning, is all down to the experience you want and the feel you get from a company or a brand.
So go with your gut, don’t be afraid to ask questions and most crucially, pick who you think will do the best job for you.
Friendly helpful staff that made it easy for us to store our goods at their Harrogate premises. The facilities were very clean and secure and we had easy access at all times.
The whole process is well run. Collection, storage and forwarding to another address, all went very well indeed. The lady at the helm, and her assistants are so friendly and helpful. The guys on the trucks are very competent and friendly people too. It is a well run operation, from start to finish.
I would certainly recommend this company to others and also would use them again should we move again. Spot on! That is the best way to describe them.
Thank you McCarthy's.
This is the second time we have used McCarthy's for storage and I can't recommend them more highly. From the initial phone call, the booking, delivering and collecting, everything is made easy and efficient by the extremely helpful and polite staff
