Choosing The Best Bolton Removal Company
It is now time for you to move house and you have decided to move with a Bolton removal firm rather than trying to do it all yourself (Wise decision!)
Moving house takes a lot more effort – both physical and mental – than what people tend to imagine. As well as the stress involved in the actual move, which can be very traumatic for lots of people, aspects such as packing boxes in a the correct manner under pressure from time constraints and throwing them in to or on to your car would be stressful enough for anyone.
Hiring a van comes with lots more stress and head-aches, sorting out your proofs of address/utility bills, paying the deposit (can be £400 – £500) driving it carefully to ensure no damage resulting in loss of deposit, fuelling up etc. etc.
That’s why you must plan everything in advance even before you think of choosing the best Bolton removal company to go with.
1st, decide on the date – this may be at your discretion or you may be tied into a chain and have to agree with all parties – if that’s the case then try to estimate your moving date as best as possible.
2nd. Ask for recomended Moving Firms by friends and family. You will feel much more relaxed if you know your goods will be in safe hands.
3rd. Decide if you want a Bolton Man and Van Service – if you can help with the loading then this can save you a few more £’£’£’s
So, the decision has been made and all you need now is a Bolton removal company to come to take you and your things to your new home, but where do you start in choosing? How do you know what removal company is the best and what should you look at when choosing? Worry no more. This article will help you step by step.
Before you decide to choose between different Bolton moving companies, ensure that you’re critical. These are your belongings and precious possesions and you want them to be handled with the utmost of care, so a good idea is to compile a list that each firm must pass before you even think of considering them.
You can include things on your list such as:
- Have they been in business for minimum of 5 years?
- Will they offer the payment options that you require?
- Will they be able to dismantle my furniture?
- Have they got good feedback from past customers?
- Does their website look professional?
- Are they registered with any approved partners?
- Will they insure your goods?
- Are they able to handle any particular heavy/unusual items you may have?
- Will their price be within your budget?
- Will they offer a fixed price?
It might be a good idea to chose one that is quite close to you as fuel costs will affect the final price of your move.
You have a much greater chance of a succsessful move if the company has been established for many years and has a lot of good feedback from previous customers.
Once you have got a short-list, speak to them all to find the one’s that you feel comfortable with – they should be completely transparent and provide you with all the necessay details about their services.
It is always best to get a few quotes to compare but always remember that cheapest is not always best!

It’s a country proud of it’s Celtic heritage which is shown by it’s rich language which is still very much part of everyday life. As more people are finding out all the time, it’s a wonderful place not just to visit but to study, work and live.
If you’re one of those people moving home from London to Wales then in order to make your move more successful there’s certain precautions you can take. For a more stress free Bolton removal for example you have to keep in control of everything. The first way to do that is to keep ahead of everything. This means being organised and planning all you have to do well in advance of your removal day.
Six to eight weeks should be enough time to do this. The first thing to do is hire a top-quality, trustworthy Bolton removal company. Find out about what services they offer and if this ties in with what you’re looking for. Once you have your removal company hired, the next thing to do is make yourself a checklist of everything you have to do. This includes notifying people, preparations around the house, packing requirements as well as your plans for the actual day of your removal.
In terms of notifying people, this should be a separate list on it’s own. This is because it’s more than likely to be a very long list. Start with the utility companies, then think of your doctor, dentist, optician etc before your cable/satellite TV and internet companies as well as your friends and family of course.
You also need to put a day aside to go round your house and decide what you’re moving to Wales and what you’re leaving behind. If you like you can use a colour coded system for this. That’s to say you have different coloured stickers for each item you’re taking and for those items you’re not taking. Don’t forget the garage and garden. Ornaments and so forth you may have could be left behind if not remembered.
Once you’ve done a rough survey of what you’re taking you should in turn have a rough idea of how much packing materials you’ll need. Your Bolton removal company can possibly supply you with these as well as help you with the actual packing and unpacking itself.
When preparing items around the house for removal also make sure you plan everything out in advance. Start with one room, finish with that room before moving on to the next. This means you won’t have two or three rooms unfinished whilst others are also half done. Concentrate on one room at a time, one thing at a time.
Think as well about what you’ll need for your actual removal day. When you’re travelling from London to Wales you may need lots of snacks and above all liquids to drink. You’re going to be in for a long day so remember to keep your energy levels replenished at all times.
If you’re lucky as well as organised, everything should go according to plan. If however, you do experience problems then don’t panic. Deal with it as best you can and then continue with your move to Wales. That way, before you know it, all the hard work and preparation done beforehand will pay off for you in the end.

Guide To Moving House in Bolton
A Complete Guide to Hiring Bolton Movers for a Stress-free Move
if the Cost is no Issue
As you’ve probably been told, or if you’ve been through it before, the logistics of moving home in Bolton can be a major hassle: you have to pack all your belongings, clean your home, and then sort out the transport. If you’re working to a budget, then all of the above can potentially be done by you and your family or friends.
Exactly when to book a removal van can be a big issue
Packing and cleaning can of course be a DIY task, and if you have a big enough vehicle then you could also transport your own things. However, if you have no budget and your goal is to move with as less stress as possible, then there are Bolton Removals services out there that will take all the physical and mental stress out of your move. Let this be a three step guide to a stress-free move if money is not an issue for you.
Hire a Bolton Packing Service
Look around you: look at all the items you own. Your TV, sofas, tables, pots, pans, clothes, etc. So many possessions that will have to be moved to your own home. No one will blame you if you don’t want to do it yourself; it’s an unrewarding task that will all be undone as soon as you move in. No worries, you can hire a Bolton Removal company to do your packing for you. They’ll come round whenever you’re both available with copious amounts of Moving boxes, masking tape, and bubble-wrap and pack all your things neatly away in an efficient and professional manner.
A packing service company will have ample experience in this industry and will be able to do a far more organised job in a shorter space than time than you will. So if you just can’t face the task of sourcing packing materials, organising what you’re going to pack when and then actually packing, or if you are just too busy doing other, more important things, then booking a packing service will be key to ensuring a stress-free move.
Hire a Cleaning Company
With packing comes cleaning. As your packing and clearing out every square-inch of your home, every square
inch of your home will need to be cleaned. Like packing, this can seem like an incredibly daunting task. Moreover, it will seem unrewarding: you’re cleaning a home that you will no longer be living in. But whether you like it or not, the cleaning will have to be done. That means hovering and dusting everywhere, cleaning the oven (if you’ve rented your home and the oven isn’t yours), clearing out all the nooks and crannies of every square-millimetre of your home.
If you are planning on moving to Europe
But, help is at hand. There a plethora of cleaners no matter where you live in the country. Starting from around £15 an hour, they could have your home looking pristine in a matter of hours and all you won’t have to lift a finger apart from doing so to make the phone call to book the cleaner.
Hire a full House removal service
Next, of course, comes the actual moving of all your items from your old home to your new one. If you want to do with as less stress coming your way as possible, then the obvious choice to hire out a Bolton removal company. For the price you
pay you’ll receive a complete and professional moving service: they will take all of your packed belongings out of your home, into the van, and then out of the van and into your new home.
If you do these three things, then moving will be no more difficult than any other daily chore.
It all comes down to choosing the best removal company that suits your particular needs and moving requirements

AA Removals Bolton Moving to Europe- Your Relocation Options Explained
For a Quick Quote from probably the cheapest Movers in Bolton then Click: Bolton Movers
Or Ring Sean at AA Removals Bolton: 01204 940204
Moving abroad can seem like a daunting task. Many people wouldn’t even know where to start looking for ways to use a Bolton Removal Company to move their possessions to another county.
Here is a detailed list of the most common options available for people moving from Bolton abroad so that you can get a better idea of what might be the best option for you.
-Airfreight: Flying your possessions across Europe to your new destination is often the first option people consider when moving abroad. If you choose this option your belongings will be secured in specific airline pallets and placed within the cargo hold of the aircraft. This is the best option if you need your items re-located quickly or if the county you are moving to has no sea access. However, due to fuel taxes and the ease of this option it is significantly more expensive than others so if you are on a budget it is best to consider other options.
-Sea Freight: This is a good option if the country you are moving to has easy sea access. Using a sea-freight service will involve loading your cargo in to large secure steel shipping containers. They are then taken via a container ship to the nearest container port to their destination. The firm you choose will offer a variety of sizes of container ranging from 850 cubic feet up to around 2400 cubic feet. The cost of this is calculated individually per customer based on the volume of your load. Each container will be solely for your use to reduce customs issues and prevent unauthorised people accessing your possessions.
-Groupage: If using any Removal Companies in Bolton for transporting your belongings via sea appeals to you but you don’t have enough to fill a container or wish to reduce costs you can opt for groupage. This is when steel containers are used for more than one customer at a time that are traveling the same route. This is a lot more cost effective than potentially paying for a container that you can only half fill. However be warned, the containers only get shipped when they have been filled so there is no way of knowing how long it will take for your possession to reach you if you use this method.
-Bolton Removal Van: This is much like hiring a removal company for removals within the UK and is the most common option for people moving within Europe. However, depending on the size of the company you choose you will find they operate differently. You may find that larger companies combine your items with that of someone else doing the same route. Smaller companies will most likely just take your consignment in their lorry so this means you are able to get a more certain idea of the timescale you are operating within. With this option there is no need for special pallets so your items can be packed exactly as you would if you were moving domestically within the UK. Most firms may have a specific packing policy and those firms tend to offer a packing service where they will pack your remaining possessions for you, therefore allowing you to travel to your destination ahead of time.
Regardless of which type of transportation you choose for your belongings it is important that you invite companies to take a look at your items so that you can get a more accurate quote. If possible it is best to ask a few different companies for a quote as many will offer different types of transportation and may well be cheaper than other companies. This way you can get a better idea of the price of different methods and you will be able to choose the most convenient and cost effective method of transportation.

Bolton Removals To Cardiff
Bolton Removals, London or in fact moving from anywhere to Cardiff?
Here’s a nice article with some great moving tips!
Avoid common mistakes when moving home to Cardiff
If you’ve decided to relocate from London to Cardiff you not only need to plan ahead but avoid making common mistakes. For instance don’t just concentrate on what needs to be done before you leave your home in London, think of what you need to do once you’re in Cardiff. So when you disconnect services, connect services as well through the companies you need to contact. The sooner you do this the smoother the transition will be from your old home to your new home.
With Cardiff going through so much growth and regeneration in recent years, it’s become one of the most desirable places to live and work in the UK. An example of the remarkable and dramatic changes it’s gone through is in it’s waterfront area which is now not only home to the Welsh Parliament Building, The Senedd but also The Welsh Millennium Arts Centre and the Cardiff International Sports Village. Cardiff is very much the centre of Welsh life nowadays.
When labelling your boxes, remember to label them clearly so you are not spending hours searching through boxes for that one item you just can’t find. Put as much information on the label as you can without over complicating things. For instance label items by the room they’re going in and what specific or general items there are inside.
One easy mistake to make is overfilling your boxes, crates or cartons. Although your Bolton removal firm may be doing much of the carrying, the easier the job is for them the quicker your removal can progress. Always think of the removal from the Bolton Removal Companies point of view as much as your own. Make sure boxes, furniture and other bits and bobs are easy to access. You don’t want your removal firm clambering all over your belongings since this is just one way accidents and breakages can occur.
Another common mistake people can make when moving home is not fitting a new carpet until after you’ve moved in. Which means all the furniture and belongings you’ve just moved in have to be moved out again. If possible get the carpet laid down before you move all your belongings in.
Remember as well that white goods can cause particular problems for your moving to Cardiff. Not only do items have to be properly disconnected but items like your fridge and freezer need sufficient time to defrost. Likewise be extremely wary of carrying liquid foodstuffs all the way to Cardiff. Any items which can spill are best thrown out or used up before you leave.

Also when you leave your old address in London, remember to take utility readings. This is to cover your own back in case you experience a phone call later on down the line saying you’ve used up a certain amount of electricity or gas when you haven’t. Take a photo if you like. This may not be completely necessary but at least it can give you peace of mind that you know exactly what the reading was when you left the house.
Also when you’re making a note of what you’re taking to Cardiff be sure not to forget places such as the garden, attic, garage or shed. Otherwise you’ll be doing that dreaded last minute packing.
You won’t remember everything of course and you will in all likelihood make ‘mistakes’. The best you can do is minimise them and put it down to experience. However, the more you can minimise those mistakes you do make, the easier your move to London to Cardiff will be.

Best time to book a Bolton removal van
The timing involved when booking your home removals company can often be a great worry and so I hope this article can help.
It can be very confusing wondering at which point do I ring round the removal companies.
I f you are selling your property then there can and often are uncertainties about the date that you need your Moving Van to be booked.
. You shouldn’t leave contacting a removals firm until the last week or so before moving as you will probably find yourself in a situation of having a moving date but no one to move you!
You will probably only be given an estimated date for completion and you will be wondering what happens if I give this date to my removal company and the date changes, will I lose my deposit?
Most reputable Bolton Moving Firms are well aware of the uncertainties regarding booking dates and so my advice would be to book your Removal Van as early as possible – as soon as you have an estimated date – and if you have to change, then at least you are on the companies books and they will do their utmost to accommodate your new date.
I t does have to be said though, that if a date changes, then you cannot expect with certainty that your removal company can guarantee a van available on your new date.
If a deposit has been made then this will normally be refunded if at least a weeks notice of date change can be given but if the date changes a couple od days or less before the move then you will probably lose your deposit or a % of the price if full price has been pre -paid.
Removal Companies are running a business and so cannot afford to absorb all costs incurred when dates change.
What time should I book the removal van for, on moving day?
This can depend on a lot of factors – most importantly the size of move and timing is critical if moving on same day as money transfers.
You will usually not be allowed access into your new home until monies have fully transfered and is more often than not, lunch-time and later.
Hence, your home needs to be emptied by that time as your purchaser will own your home once money is in to your account so will be entitled to access from that moment.
Your Moving company will discuss all this with you and recommend best starting times.
It is advisable that you find out from your buyer if they definitely want access to your property on the day of sale – if not, then this takes great pressure off you on the moving date and timing can be more relaxed.
Also find out if the house you will be moving into will be empty before sale day.
It can be cheaper undertaking a local short distance move with a smaller vehicle doing multi-trips and so this will be a possible option if there are no time constraints on moving day, other wise you will have to use a removals wagon large enough to contain all your possesions in one go.
I hope that this article has help clarify the timing aspects of moving house and considering all the above options will ensure a well organised move and could save you quite a bit of money!
