Get an affordable removals company in South East London today. With Bookamover you get up to five house moving companies to contact you with prices and availabilities. And we advise you to find local movers. They will know the pitfalls of the area – hard to find parking spaces and busy traffic. Depending on the size of your property you can book a local man and van company or a reputable nationwide moving firm, which can offer fully comprehensive local or long-distance moves. Do not book removal service in the last moment, as this might be more expensive. You will not have a chance to find a suitable and affordable removal company. You need minimum 3-4 weeks to collect moving quotes. Thi is enough time to compare prices and to try to negotiate a better price for your upcoming move. If your property is bigger than two bedrooms, Bookamover advise to get couple of home visit from different removal companies. A moving home survey will give a chance to their surveyor to prepare a flat rate quotation, which might save you stress and money. Show them everything – inlcluding loft, garage or garden. Any hidden items might come as a suprise to the removal company and they will try to charge you extra. Or they might come with a removal van which is not sufficient for your move.
When choosing the removal company ask about the size and number of vehicles they are sending. It is very important when you have to reserve parking. If the parking is free but not enough space, ask your neighbours if the removals can use their parking. Every moving company will tell you they need to park as close as possible as moving heavy furniture and boxes is not easy. If you need to suspend parking spaces, you will need to contact your local council and advice on how to do it.
Once you receive all moving quotes, Bookamover do not advise to choose the cheapest offer. Sometimes saving money at the beggining, might cost more at the end. Choose wise!

Extra Moving Services In South East London
If you don`t have time to organize your move and you are looking for extra help, you might be interested in additional services like:
Packing of the removal boxes – Get professional help and ask the removers to pack and protect your clothes, books and glassware. They should know how to safely and quickly empty and pack all cupboard and drawers in your home. It is not recommended to move chests and cabinets while there are items inside. Most, if not all removal companies use professional double-walled moving boxes in various sizes. All removal boxes has a limit of 20kg, as sometimes movers have to move them by carrying. Many places in London are not suitable for using removal trolleys and dolly sacks. This is why it is important the wheight to be spread evenly between all boxes, so the removal men can easily move and lift where it is needed. The removal men will also need to label the boxes, so you can find easily everything once you are moved into your new home. You have different options for packing – the moving company can pack the breakables only, particular room or a full packing service of all rooms in your home. Packing service can also be offered as an hourly rate, but it will be best if you speak directly with you chosen local movers.
Dismantle and Reassemble of furniture – If the large furniture must be taken apart, you can ask your moving experts removals to do it for you. They will have all the necessary tools, like screwdrivers and spanners, to make it quick and better. Some items of furniture can be transported as they are, but there will be bulky items like beds and wardrobes, which will need to be taken apart. Be aware that if you have an old IKEA furniture, there is a change the movers to refure to assemble it or it might not even be possible. IKEA furniture is not very durable and it is not designed to be taken apart and assembled multiple times. In those case, it is worth buying a new one and leave/sell the old one. Expect the removal men to be faster and more efficient, so it is worth paying a bit extra to get it done by the moving company.
Piano Moves – Moving heavy objects like pianos, require experience and skills. Check if the movers are insured for this task. They must have the correct tools like piano dolly and piano covers to protect and move your piano safely. Moving a heavy items like a statue or a grand piano will require more man power, so a man and van company might not be the right choice for you. When looking for this kind of help, Bookamover advise to choose based on experience and not on price.
SE London Storage Companies…
Need extra space?Are you downsizing and need to store furniture and unwanted stuff? Ask your removal company to organize storage for you.

If you are using a removal company to move your belongings to the storage, always ask them to wrap and protect all furniture with blankets or furniture paper. It will cost extra, but it is much more cheap than the damages and scratches which you will find after everything is out of the storage if they are not placed properly. If doing it yourslef, be extra carefull and try to wrap and protect everything by yourself.
