WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO HAVE THE CORRECT REMOVALS VEHICLE WHEN MOVING HOUSE?

A lot of removals companies will provide a Luton vehicle and either do numerous trips back and forth or supple 2 or 3 Luton vehicles to carry out your removals. What a lot of people do not realise is that these companies are either breaking the law by cramming all your household goods and effect on to one vehicle which is legally designed to only carry 1.5 ton, which not only will this put the vehicle over weight but 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 serval trips using one or more Luton vehicles. Either way this will affect your removal cost with the amount of time it will take loading & unloading several Luton vehicles or it could affect the way your goods will be packed/stored into a potential incorrect vehicle. Therefore if you are moving a 2-3, 4-5 bedroom house it is always important to research the removal company you are thinking about using and what vehicle they can provide. This will give you an idea if the company tailor the removals to meet your needs or theirs by only providing one type of vehicle which reflects one type of service.

WHAT VEHICLE DO YOU REQUIRE?

It is vital that you are quoted correctly for a good price and the ideal vehicle choice for your removal project. Here is a breakdown of the type of vehicle you should hope to be quoted for the type of removals service you require.

TRANSIT

A transit is best for single items.

DAF (7.5 TON)

DAF’s are perfect transport for 1 or 2 bedroom removals.

LUTON

A Luton van is perfect for single items to a few items.

SCANIA (18TON)

A Scania is ideal for a 3+ bedroom move or any removal.

COMPANY PROFESSIONALISM & EXPERIENCE

The vehicle that is provided from your removal company will tell you a lot about the experience & professionalism you are likely to receive and here is why. As you can see to drive a bigger removal vehicle you have to have a lot more qualification and be experienced within the removal trade. Therefore companies that provide these vehicle would have invested time and money into their employees to ensure they have the correct qualifications and experience to provide a professional service.
