One of the biggest headaches for both
removal companies, and removal customers is being able to communicate
effectively with regards to the amount of space you will need on a van. Of
course, people who work in the business of removals will be able to tell instantly
from an inventory if you, as the customer will need a full load.
That is to say, you have enough boxes to
fill all of the space in a lorry. This can be anything from a Luton van to a
40ft container. It all depends on how large your move is and how much you wish
to take with you.
Unfortunately, there are times when working
out the amount of space you need can be difficult, and whilst any removals
professional will do all they can to make sure everything will fit on their van
when they arrive, there are times when things get forgotten.
As we all know, moving is a very stressful
business, and as the customer you may be so caught up in making sure you have
the dates for your move in place, that you have the keys to your new home, and
a multitude of other things, it is possible to forget to tell your removal
company you have a large item you want to add to your inventory.
There is one way around this. Some removal
companies will send a representative to you so they can see for them-selves how
large your move is going to be. However, this isn’t always possible because of
location. Another way to find out if you will need a full load when you’re moving is to use a volume
convertor, and these can be found on the internet. They’re very easy to use,
and will tell you within seconds how much space you will need.
The fact is that as the customer, you
really need to make sure you prioritise the amount of space you’re going to
need. If you don’t it may result in your removal team not being able to fit
everything you want to take on the day into the vehicle they’ve sent you, and
this will only send your stress levels even higher!
course, it can work the other way as well. If you under estimate how much space
you need everything of course, will fit on the lorry but you may end up paying
for more space than you need. This is why it’s IMPERATIVE you get the amount of
space you need just right.
