Moving home – costs to consider. Wrekin Removals & Storage Shropshire

There are several factors that will affect the price of a move, including:

  • The quantity of stuff to be moved: more stuff = higher volume / more weight = bigger or multiple vehicles / more stuff also means a larger removal crew to get it all packed and loaded onto the removal vehicles.
  • Are you packing yourself or do you want the removals company to deal with the packing for you.
  • How much packing materials you need.
  • The distance of the move – the further the van(s) have to travel, the higher the fuel costs.
  • Whether overnight stays will be needed for the removals drivers to comply with long distance driving regulations - in the UK drivers have to have a 45 minute break every 4.5 hours.
  • If you have high value, special items such as a piano or pieces of art that need extra care and specialist attention.
  • How quickly you want the move to happen – all done in a day usually means bringing a bigger removals team together.
  • When you move - peak season such as school holidays or weekends are when there is the highest demand.

So, you’ll see there's a lot to consider which is why a good removal company will ask to visit your property to ensure their price is accurate and all the factors have been considered. At Wrekin Removals we offer a free no-obligation pre-move survey so we know that the price we quote for your move is 100% accurate.

Prices can range roughly from several hundred pounds for a small 2 bed house up to several thousand for really large houses and complicated long distance moves. We wouldn’t advise that you accept rough estimates over the phone – it really is impossible to quote until an expert estimator sees your property and contents.
