    The best ways to save money when hiring a moving company:

    -Book in advance so you get the best deal.
    -Compare prices instead of just getting one quote.
    -Have a big clear out beforehand. Don't pay more money to transport items you don't want!
    - Get your removals team to send someone to do a valuation. That way, they can see how much stuff you have and won't underestimate the size of the van or number of team members needed.
    - Make sure you're ready to go as soon as possible! Don't still be packing when the team arrive, and don't be waiting around to collect the keys from the estate agent. The longer they wait, the more you have to pay.

      Compare prices for sure. Open up a bunch of tabs and in each one have another potential moving company's price list.
      Also do searches of the name of the moving company plus the word 'reviews' to uncover any horror stories. Just bear in mind, these reviews tend to skew negative I think.
      And consider a small local company, sometimes they can try harder.

        If you guys are still searching for some expert moving company then you should take creative pictures of your new location and in this case you need to hire some professional ?
