Five years ago, my boyfriend and I relocated from Reading, England on our own. We didn’t consider hiring a London moving company to help us with the process. We didn’t think it was necessary to hire one and though we could handle everything on our own. So, we went ahead and packed all our households in boxes and loaded them on our pick-up and moved to our new place, London. While we were unloading our house items, it was very sad to realize that many of our belongings were damaged. My newly bought furniture had broken down and it was hectic to even repair them. Our 3sitter comfy leather chair was beyond repair. Some of the things damaged in the moving process had sedimental value and could really not be replaced. We incurred great loss despite how carefully we had wrapped them. I actually regret the decision we made of moving our own because it cost us a lot. I even lost count of the items damaged.
This time, we decided to hire a London removals company and trust me, my experience with removal companies was fantastic. There are so many removal companies London has to offer. I personally searched the internet for the best removal company in London and settled for Simply Removals moving company based in London. I visited the company for inquiries and they explained their services and the cost of each. They offered three services; Full service moving, Do-It-Yourself service(DIY) and Semi- service. Because in semi-service and DIY, the packing and loading is done by the homeowner, i chose full service because i didn’t want to handle anything by myself. We had lost a lot the last time we took things on our hands and this time, i chose to trust a removal company.
Everything was hassle free and the process went on smoothly. The parking was an issue in Reading but the Simply removal company handled it promptly. One day before the moving day, the company send me a group of packing men who packed all my households in the packing materials they brought with them carefully. After everything was packed, they labelled the boxes to ensure there could not be a mix up while unpacking. The day of moving came, the company was very punctual and arrived at my place of residence at 10 am just as we had agreed. The truck driver arrived with some few men who took the boxes and loaded them to the truck. The team was very courteous,helpful and friendly.
When we reached the destination, that is, my new place . They took the furniture and placed them in the correct places. The process was so fast. They teamed up and as some men were taking care of the furniture, others were unpacking the boxes and placing the households where they are supposed to be. The experience was pleasing because just in a while, everything was at the right place and i was fully settled. They cleared all the packing debris and left me enjoying their services.
Everything was intact and in good condition. Nothing was damaged. I am grateful for the services they offered. My experience with removal companies made me trust them and i like sharing the experience with anyone interested in moving. Don’t move on your own. If you value and treasure your households, hire a removal company to help you with the process. Again, hire the best and you will not regret.
