What are the benefits of using a removals company?

House Removals Leeds & WakefieldWhat are the benefits of using a removals company? Moving house can be incredibly exciting, providing an opportunity for a fresh start and new opportunities. Whether you’re relocating to gain more space, to downsize, or for work reasons, there’s a lot to look forward to. However, before you start packing boxes and deciding who gets which bedroom, you need to decide how you will move your belongings to your new house. 

There are several ways you could do this, from hiring a van yourself to asking your friends to help out. However, the easiest way is to hire a removals company in Leeds or Wakefield. Here are the biggest benefits of using a removals firm for your house move. 

Experienced in helping people move house 

When you hire a reputable removals company, you’re hiring a team of professionals who have many years’ experience. At Darvills of Leeds, we’ve been helping local people to move house for over 100 years, establishing ourselves as one of the leading removals firms in the area. We’re used to dealing with all kinds of moves. So, whether your property is a 5-bed house or a small bungalow, we can assist. 

We can also be relied upon to lift and manoeuvre awkward or heavy items with ease. Whatever your requirements, a trustworthy removals firm like Darvills of Leeds can get the job done in a professional manner. 

All lifting and carrying is taken care of 

Heavy lifting and carrying can be one of the most demanding aspects of moving house. Not only is it physically challenging, but it’s time-consuming too. It can be particularly difficult if you’re moving with young children and need to care for them throughout the move. Fortunately, when you hire removals companies in Leeds, they’ll take care of all the lifting and carrying for you. You won’t need to lift a finger. At Darvills of Leeds, we’ll take the strain out of your move, making it a breeze from start to finish. 

Expert local area knowledge

If you’re not familiar with the area you’re moving to, getting to your new house can be challenging. Finding your way around a new town with your worldly possessions can be downright stressful to say the least. Fortunately, hiring a removals company can take away the hassle, with experienced drivers able to work out the best route to your new home. 

When you choose Darvills of Leeds, you can relax in the knowledge that we have expert knowledge of the local roads, not just in Leeds and Wakefield, but surrounding towns and villages. With many years’ experience of helping people move house, we’re confident we can get you to your new home promptly, without any problems whatsoever.

A large removals lorry 

When many people begin to pack for their move, they’re shocked at just how many possessions they’ve accumulated. Not only that, but how many of them are awkward or large items which are incredibly difficult to transport. Therefore, hiring a removals company which has a large lorry is almost a necessity. Whilst you can hire a van yourself, you’ll no doubt need to make multiple trips back and forth to move all your possessions. Using a removals company’s sizeable lorry isn’t just about a big vehicle. It’s also about the experienced driver who can navigate it skilfully and with ease to your new home.  

Your goods are insured 

One of the biggest benefits of using a removals company is that your goods will be insured during the move. Whilst it is possible to take out additional cover when doing it yourself, it’s an additional expense that you probably don’t need at this pricey time. You can avoid this cost by hiring a removals firm that is already fully insured. If the worst happens during your move, you can rest easy that your possessions are covered. When you hire Darvills of Leeds for your house move, you can relax in the knowledge that we have both Goods in Transit and Public Liability insurance.  

Packing services 

Don’t underestimate the value of professional packing services when moving house. Many removals companies in Leeds and Wakefield will offer to pack your belongings for you, making the whole process of moving to your new home so much easier. Darvills of Leeds not only offer a packing service, making sure your goods are safely packed away ready for the move, but we also provide all the packing materials. 

From wardrobe cartons and boxes to packing paper and tape, we can supply all the materials needed to pack your possessions quickly and safely. Packing for your move can be stressful and time-consuming, so think carefully before you turn down this service. It can save you a whole lot of hassle on moving day.   

Storage facilities 

Moving house is harder than it looks, particularly if you’re downsizing. Many people are surprised at just how many possessions they have. This leads to the realisation as the move draws near that they don’t have enough space for them. Fortunately, some removal firms offer storage facilities where you can keep your goods safe before you decide what you want to do with them. 

At Darvills of Leeds, we offer secure removals storage to our customers at highly competitive prices. We offer units of all sizes, allowing us to meet your specific storage requirements. Long-term and short-term lease options are available, and we also provide CCTV around the clock.  

A full removals survey will be carried out 

Before you hire a removals company for your house move, they’ll attend your property to carry out a full survey. This not only allows them to assess how many items need removing and provide you with an accurate quote, but it lets them identify any issues, regarding access for example. Accessibility is a big consideration for any move. Factors such as parking, obstacles, and limited access areas can all serve as potential stumbling blocks. At Darvills of Leeds, our survey allows us to find solutions to any problems early on, making sure that moving day goes as smoothly as possible.
