THE RIGHT REMOVAL VEHICLE FOR MOVING HOUSE
A lot of removal companies will provide a Luton vehicle, resulting in numerous trips back and forth or multiple vehicles to carry out your removal. What a lot of people do not realise is that these companies are breaking the law. By cramming all of your household goods into one vehicle, that is legally designed to only carry 1.5 tons, the vehicle will exceed its weight limitations. This could potentially damage your belongings.
You may have agreed to an unfair deal, such as paying at an hourly rate and having your removal company do several trips using one or more Luton vehicles. This will impact your removal cost, with the amount of time it will take to load and unload multiple vehicles. If you are moving house, it is always important to research the removal company you are thinking of using and what vehicle they can provide. This will give you an insight into whether the company tailor their removals to meet your needs.
WHAT VEHICLE DO YOU REQUIRE?
It is vital that you are quoted correctly, with a good price and the ideal vehicle choice for your removal project. Here is a breakdown of the types of vehicles you should be quoted for depending on your relocation needs.
A transit is best for single items.
DAF (7.5 TON)
DAF’s are perfect transport for 1 or 2 bedroom removals.
A Luton van is perfect for single items to a few items.
A Scania is ideal for a 3+ bedroom move or any removal.
COMPANY PROFESSIONALISM & EXPERIENCE
The vehicle that is provided by your removal company will tell you a lot about the experience and professionalism you are likely to receive. As you can see, to drive a bigger removal vehicle you will need to have the correct qualifications and be experienced within the trade. Therefore, companies that provide these vehicles would have invested time and money into their employees to ensure they have the correct qualifications and experience to provide a professional service.
