How To Choose A Reliable Moving Company

May 1, 2019 | By |

When moving house it is essential that you choose a reliable moving company. The last thing you want is to be sat waiting on your doorstep surrounded by all your belongings in boxes, only to find out that the company you chose can no longer help you.

However, there are lots of removals companies in Ely, all of which claim to be great at what they do. But how can you choose a reliable house removals company?

Local Knowledge

When choosing a removals company that you can rely on, make sure they work locally. You need a company that knows where you live and where you are moving to. By choosing one of the local moving companies in Ely you are likely to know where they are based, so it is less likely they are a fraudulent business. They will also know the local area which will help reduce the stress of your house move.


We would recommend that you get prices and quotes from a number of businesses to see the average price you can expect to pay. Make sure you don’t base your decision purely on price as the cheapest one may be the cheapest because they offer a lower quality of removals service or do not have the correct insurance in place.

Feedback & Reviews

Take the time to look online at the real testimonials, reviews and feedback from people that have moved homes with them. While there may be great testimonials on their website, check out any online reviews or reviews on social media to see previous customer’s experiences. If you can see that they have lots of happy customers then it is more likely the moving service you receive, you will be happy with.

Deposit Requests

It is unlikely for a removals company to ask for more than 20% as a deposit. If you are asked for more than this we would recommend that you double check the company online. In some cases, customers have been asked for a 50% deposit and then they have been let down on the day. We have also heard of cases where a removals business has asked for more money on the day and held the customers items hostage in their van.
