Top Tips On How To Prepare When Using a Removals Company Bromley


I recently moved to Bromley – a borough located in Kent County within the Greater London Area – with the intention of giving my kids a chance to grow up in a tranquil neighbourhood with some of the best schools in South London. As a first-time mover, I did not know where to begin when it comes to prepping for a relocation. Based on my personal (and I must add great) experience with the professional Bromley moving professionals at F Smith & Son, I have compiled some top tips on how to prepare for a relocation when using a professional moving company.


First, get an online quotation https://www.fsmithandson.co.uk/removals-bromley/ on how much you will likely spend on your move. To get an accurate quotation, you may be asked to provide a list of the items to be moved, your current location and the expected timeline within which you expect to be relocated to your new home. Further, you may also be asked to provide photos of some items so that your movers can provide the appropriate packing materials. It goes without saying that when dealing with professionals like F Smith & Son, all the information that you provide will be treated with the outmost confidentiality.


If you are moving on a tight schedule, say because you want to begin a new job, it is best that you try packing some of your possessions in advance. If you are unsure on how to properly pack fragile or huge items, ask your movers to handle the packing on your behalf. Professional movers have the expertise and experience on how to properly pack items so that they do not get damaged while in transit.


Before hiring movers, it is important that you personally speak to your preferred moving experts so as to understand exactly what you will be paying for. Do not assume that all processes that arise during a move will be covered in the initial quotation that you receive. Ask your preferred moving experts to send a pre-invoice that comprehensively details all the services that they will offer.


You should also create an inventory of all the items that will be transported by your movers. The inventory should detail the condition of all the items when they are being packed for transportation. Once your movers have finished relocating your possessions, you can refer to the inventory list to determine if there were any damages in transit. For the avoidance of doubt later on, ensure that you share the inventory list that you create with your movers.


Before hiring a mover, it is also important to determine if they offer all the services that you require. For example, you may require specialised packing services or storage services for some of your possessions. Will your mover be able to offer all the services you need or will you have to outsource some of the services? Ideally, all moving processes should be handled under one roof. Reason? As the sages said, “too many cooks spoil the broth.”


My experience has taught me one important thing; preparation is key to a successful relocation. If you are moving to Bromley, hire F Smith & Son Removals & Storage. At their hands, I had a smooth relocation process – which is the reason I can vouch that they offer 100% client satisfaction.
