How to Negotiate a Cheaper Removal

Posted by David Reed


Moving home can be expensive; so here are our best tips for getting the best deal on your removal service.

Tidy Up

Try and have your home tidy when the removal estimator is carrying out his survey; this will allow him/her to accurately gauge the amount of furniture they are quoting for.

Book in Advance

Book your house removal as ahead of time as possible since removal companies will be keen to fill their diary as early as possible. So, early home visits place you in a good bargaining position.

Get 3 Quotes

Get 3 different quotes and negotiate the best price. The removal market is highly competitive and movers can often discount up to 10% from their initial quotation (sometimes more).

Don’t Move on Friday

Fridays are the busiest day of the week for movers and they will not be short of work, so moving mid-week will allow to bargain even harder.

Check Your Own Insurance

Check to see if your own home insurance covers you for your move. If it does, ask your mover if there is a chargeable element in their quote for insurance and can it be deducted.
