If you are in Europe, will be moving to another European country and need to hire an international removals company, here are a few tips that will help you find the best one for your specific move.
Reading reviews about international removals companies — The first place to start is by reading online reviews about the international removals companies in your area of Europe, e.g. Removals to Belgium. This will give you a starting point, and will allow you to find companies that have a good reputation, as well as eliminate those that do not.
Make a note of any company that seems to have been liked by the people that used it, and go to their websites to see if they offer the exact services that you need.
How long have they been in business? — Find out how long each international removals company you look at has been in business. The usual rule of thumb is that the ones that have been doing it for the longest, tend to have been doing so for a reason. Namely that they are very good at what they do, and have a long line of happy customers.
Make a list of the ones with the most experience and compare it to the list of those with the best reputations. In many cases, they will be the one and the same.
Where do they move to? — Most international removals companies will move all over Europe, so it will not matter if you are moving from France to Austria, or Germany to Belgium, they will be able to do the move for you.
Just be sure each company you are interested in hiring does do moves to where you are going, as there is no point wasting any more time looking at a company that does not.
How long does it take to organize a move? — Sometimes, you may find that the move you need to make to a different country has to be done in a very short frame of time.
Be sure to choose a company that can move quickly. Some companies can move you as fast as tomorrow, so choose one of these if needs be. Just be sure you are aware that the closer to the moving time you arrange your move, the more expensive your move will be.
What does the move entail? — In most cases, a typical move from one European country to another will be the same.
You will make arrangements for the international removals company to arrive and they will do so at the appointed time. They will then pack all of your belongings and load them onto their truck. Once loaded, the truck will leave to go to your new destination.
They will meet you at your new home and unload the truck. It is then up to you to check the contents of all of your boxes, and report any loss or damage to them within a certain amount of time. That is how you do an international move. Easy isn’t it?
