P&M Movers provide set removals for all our clients including some services other companies charge for as an added extra.
The system we employ makes it easier for the client to understand what they are paying for and it takes the stress out of the removal process for the client as it is stressful enough for them from the outset.
When moving a long distance it is in your best interest to work with us and arrange a two or three day removal.
The two or three day removal allows us to load the vehicle the days prior to the moving day then travel down the day before the move.
If you have somewhere to stay or are ok to book into a hotel you have all the following day to move into your new home.
The other option is to load the day prior to the moving day and keep just what you need until the moving day when we will come and collect the last items and transport them to your new property.
This is mainly for long distance removals and large property removals. Most of all it is just common sense and it relieves the pressure of moving when leaving a large property or traveling a long distance. You are ready the day before you move and have the full day to move into your new home.
We advise our clients to contact and arrange the hand over of the keys directly so you do not have the situation where the estate agent sits on the keys and you do not get them till late in the day.
Once the money has been transferred you can get the keys but for some reason estate agents keep hold of them and put jobs into overtime status for no reason.
Speak with the other parties and advise them you are packing and leaving the day before and you will be in the location of your new home on the morning of the moving day. Doing this gives you the whole day to either move in, get the keys or in the worst case scenario resolve any problems you may have with the other peoples solicitors or estate agents.
Fixed Rate Removals.
We provide a fixed rate service where the price quoted covers all the services stated on the quotation and the removals contract. This price will not change unless you change the location of your move to an area outside of the quoted area in the contract.
Items added after the original quotation will be charged for if it will not all fit on the van or lorry.
If you are ordering new goods for your new house have them delivered to your new address as they may not fit on the removals van.
The hourly rate removal is really for local small moves within the same location only because it is viable for them to use a smaller vehicle for a shorter length of time. With hourly rated removals you pay for the vehicle and a number of men to carry out the move.
