Providing a brief for your removals company

No matter how experienced the Oxford removals firm, it’s always sensible for the client to brief the company on any particular directions they need to implement on moving day. Too often, accidents occur due to a communication breakdown, but by creating a briefing form for your chosen removals company, you can help mitigate any potential mishaps. Below we will run through some of the main points of consideration for a removals brief.

Items that require special packaging

Probably the most crucial aspect of a briefing is to detail any items that are fragile and will require specific packing. Any glassware, antiques and other valuables should be marked out and kept separate from all other possessions.

Heavy and awkward to move items

You will want to draw attention to any items that are exceptionally heavy or burdensome to move. The removals company can then ensure the correct labour-power is present on removals day, as well as being able to put together a plan for how they will load the goods on to the vehicle.

Any furniture that needs deconstructing

If you have any wardrobes or cabinets that need dismantling before removals day and you are unable to do it yourself, you will need to make the removals firm aware. They will need to factor in the additional time and labour it will take.

Floor plan of the new property

To ensure that all boxes are placed in the correct rooms at the new property, it’s beneficial to provide the removals firm with a floor plan. A plan allows offloading to occur more efficiently, saving time and ultimately money.
