Few people get truly excited at the prospect of moving house. Even if you’ve bought your dream home or are being sent on an exciting overseas assignment, there’s still the problem of getting all your possessions packed and delivered safely to your new address. Doubtless you have heard the many tales of woe from people who have had problems with their move. This is not surprising when you consider how many things can go wrong. For a start, most people own possessions that are valuable and need to be handled in the proper way, and this will often require the experience of a professional. It’s not enough just to have a few strong people to move a piano, for example, as there is expertise involved in knowing exactly how it should be handled. Then, again, there are those items that have only sentimental value and cannot be replaced simply by claiming from insurance. It’s amazing how often it’s these very items that are broken and which make the owners so very unhappy with the move.

The bottom line is that you need to partner with a company that has a history of professionalism, and that you know you can trust. There are many companies like this, but you may need to do your homework and even conduct some research on-site. For example, have you ever considered visiting the premises of a removal company? You’ll learn a lot from the surroundings. If you enter into a dingy office with paperwork everywhere and rather tatty surroundings, you can make some immediate assumptions about the state of the removal vehicles, and the thoroughness of the documentation.

Find a removals company in Devon that is registered with the British Association of Removals (BAR)

One simple way to narrow down your research is to find a company that is registered with the BAR. It’s to your great advantage that there is such an organisation in place, as it gives you a guarantee of service standards. Also, should anything go wrong, you have this professional body to whom who you can address your complaints. Should you experience breakages, your removals company should have insurance to cover this, as required by the BAR. If the removal van breaks down or has to stop overnight and any of your possessions are stolen, this would also be covered, and you’d have recourse if you wished to sue the company. Of course, if you’ve chosen well and are dealing with professionals who have experienced staff and maintain their vehicles well, none of these problems should occur in the first place. If something should something go wrong unexpectedly, you’ll be happy to know that the BAR will handle any arbitration required between you and the removals company.
