How to Choose the Best Removals Company when Moving Home

Gloucester is an upcoming destination for many people looking to get on the property ladder, as many good-sized properties in desirable neighbourhoods can be found at more affordable prices than in neighbouring areas. Gloucester has plenty of amenities and attractions to appeal to both younger and older people wishing to move to the area too.


When it comes to moving, you need to carefully consider which removals Gloucester company will offer you the best all round service and help you make moving day as easy as possible.

Here are a few tips on how to choose the best moving firm to help you relocate to your new home.


It’s easy enough to check the reputation of a company offering removals services. First port of call should be their website. Check out what they offer and what they say about their services. Then look for testimonials and customer reviews – and make sure the people who have used their services back up any claims made about offering excellent service or attention to detail.

Don’t be afraid to ask for the contact number of a customer who has used their services recently, and simply call them and explain that you are considering using the company and ask them frankly to describe the experience they had with the company. This is the most direct and unfiltered method – and usually results in a frank appraisal of the company you are considering.


Money isn’t everything, but if you have an entire house full of possessions to move from one location to another, it’s not going to be cheap no matter which company you contract to do the job. Cheapest is not always the best anyway. What you’re looking for is value for money and a price that is competitive. Like many other services or products you purchase – obtain at least three competitive quotes for moving your possessions from your old home to your new home and check the details to see what the differences are.

In particular, look for details regarding insurance cover provided by the company and any extra help offered which other companies might not offer.

If it’s a close decision between two service providers, don’t be afraid to approach each one and see if they can improve upon their original quote, there’s nothing like a little competitive bidding to see who really wants your business.


Any well-established company will probably have a good, or even stellar, reputation; no business survives for long if it doesn’t provide good service. But you can also check to see if the firm you are considering is registered as a member of the British Association of Removers, for even more peace of mind. Membership of such an association shows an attitude of professionalism and dedication to providing the best removals service possible for their customers.

Take your time, do your research, and you’ll end up partnering with the best removals company for the job, and you won’t be disappointed.
