What protection can you expect when moving house?

Protection can mean several things. Protection from rouge removers, protecting you with insurance or  physical protection of your furniture and property.  Ill cover the latter in this post.

Moving house is probably one of the most stressful things you can ever do in your life, it can also be one of the most expensive! People employ professionals throughout the whole moving process from Estate Agents, Solicitors, Home Stagers, Mortgage Brokers and Surveyors to Builders, Plumbers, Security companies  and carpet fitters and cleaners. Only the best? Of coarse! but why do some people try and save a bit of money on the most important part of it all- Looking after your cherished items on moving day?  You've got expensive, sofas TV`s Mattresses etc etc so why do people use unregulated removers or man and van services just to save a few quid? When in reality they are just setting themselves up for a potential nightmare!.

Sorry don't mean to go off on one! but seriously when you ask someone to move you from A-B, everything in your home, pack it up and put it all on a lorry and then move it into your new home, you can imagine that if not done correctly they could end up causing allot of damage if not handled correctly.

The first thing to do is pick an accredited remover either British association of Removers or National Guild of Removers and Storers Ltd (These are the only two). Preferably that have been recommended to you, but certainly have been established for several years and have testimonials available. The next thing to do is ask what protection they will offer for your furniture and property.

Most professional removal companies will have the following:-

Covers for your Doors, Bannister's and Carpets. 
Sofa and Armchair Covers 
Hanging Garment Carriers  
Mattress Covers
Dining Table and Chair Covers
Wide screen TV covers
Piano Covers

Dining Table Cover


Sofa and Armchair Covers

Wide screen TV Cover

As well as all these specialist covers there will be hundreds of Removal Blankets to protect anything else.

When Moving House you want to cover as many bases as possible, ask about these type of covers when getting quotes, it may save you lots of upset later on!
