It is usually the case that, outside of emergency circumstances, moving home is not something you’d normally decide on and do overnight. At best it can take you weeks if not months of thinking and planning. Giving yourself as much time as possible is a good way of easing the pressure that comes with removals, but this in itself doesn’t give you a guide as to what you need to arrange and when.

We’d like to spend a bit of time here looking at the question of when you should be calling on us, the renowned name for Chelmsford removals, to come and give you an accurate quote for your move. In our experience this is something that our many valued clients haven’t always been sure of. Whilst a short answer to this question would be the proverbial “the sooner the better”, let’s have a look in more detail.

Our friends at BAR, the British Association of Removers, offer the advice that you should contact your removals firm of choice about a month before your intended move. In general terms this is a very reasonable answer, and in the overwhelming majority of cases would allow sufficient time for us to get it all done professionally and smoothly.

The above should not, however, be read as us telling you not to call us sooner if you like. In many cases this can help you. The earlier the better is also wise if you are moving at a busy time of the year.

There have been a few times we’ve been called in to give a quote for removals in Chelmsford 2, 3 or even 4 months before the move is planned for. Once or twice we’ve even been called in to quote when there’s no definitive move date set. This is absolutely fine by us.

We know that the sooner you have a quote, the faster you can plan and budget all parts of your move. It’s also true, of course, that the sooner you have us give you an estimate, the closer you are to being aware that we really do offer the best service at the most competitive price.

At the end of the day, our service is here to be of the greatest help possible to you. Whilst we’d encourage you not to leave it too late, we’d say the best time to call us in to assess and quote is when you’re ready to put the details and plans for your move in place. Our team will be delighted to hear from you, and give you all the help, advice and assistance we can.
