The Benefits of Utilizing Shiply for Your House Move


Thousands of Registered Removal Firms - Shiply has thousands of companies ready to offer you a quote for your house removal. This means more choices between types of company, types of service, & the cost you incur.


Time-Saving - With Shiply, you only need to create one listing. Letting removal firms come to you instead of having to contact each company individually will save you considerable time, allowing you to focus on other aspects while the quotes arrive in your inbox.


User-Friendly - Our online form is straightforward & easy to use. You just need to answer a few questions about the specifics of your personal house move, & your listing will be live in no time. Questions include whether you reside in a house or flat, the number of rooms, & the addresses of both the old & new home.


Eco-Friendly - Our registered moving companies schedule their jobs with Shiply around their existing work in a similar area to you or use spare space in what would otherwise be an empty or partially-full vehicle. This means your house move will often have a reduced negative impact on the environment.


Cost-Effective - As your possessions will be utilizing otherwise wasted space in vehicles, our removal companies can offer cheaper prices for the same high standards of service that you would expect from approaching house removal companies individually elsewhere. Shiply users typically save up to 75% compared to standard rates, so you won't be paying an unnecessary premium.


Varieties of Removal Services Available on Shiply


A company offering a comprehensive moving service will assist you with all aspects of the move, including packing, heavy lifting at both ends, & unpacking in your new home. This type of service is typically more expensive due to the amount of work involved. A comprehensive service would suit a busy household with minimal time for packing & those who prefer to avoid the stress of the move & leave the bulk of the work to the professionals.


A partial-service offers some of the same features as a comprehensive service but not all. Typically, a partial-service will include loading & unloading at both ends but will not include assistance with packing. This type of service would be best for those who are available on the day to be involved in the move but perhaps need an extra pair of hands. A partial-service would also suit those who may need help with particular tasks at either side of the process, such as assembling furniture.


A self-service or self-packing move is the most basic & cost-effective of the removal types. Self-service can be either just the hiring of a van for you to drive yourself or hiring a driver with a vehicle to transport your possessions from the old house to the new one. If you already have plenty of hands ready to help on moving day & do not require a team to assist with packing & assembling, a self-service move is likely all you'll need.


When choosing between quotes from removal companies on Shiply, ensure you understand the service that each quote includes so you know exactly what to expect & how to prepare for moving day. Before accepting a quote, we recommend reviewing the Shiply profile of each company - here, you can check the insurances & accreditations of all the companies that have sent you a quote, as well as their feedback as rated by other Shiply users. Once you've decided which company to go with, accept your chosen quote.


In the lead-up to your moving date, make sure you inform your chosen company of any changes that may affect them.


Readying for Your House Move


There are numerous tasks to complete in preparation for moving day, which will help everything run more smoothly & minimize stress. Here are some tips to assist you in the lead-up to your moving day:


Inform People About Your Move - In addition to loved ones, remember to notify companies about your move, including energy providers, your bank, & Royal Mail. Subscriptions & memberships will need to be transferred to the new address, as well as your TV license & phone bill, so create a list of everyone you need to inform & work your way through it one by one.


Declutter - Try to get rid of items you don't want to keep, especially if your new home has less storage space than your current one. For higher-value items, consider selling on eBay for extra money & donating items to charity or giving them away to friends & family. After decluttering, you'll have fewer boxes to pack, & it'll feel more like a fresh start in your new home, not surrounded by things you don't need or want.


Request Leftover Cardboard Boxes from Supermarkets - Boxes don't have to be expensive. Ask friends & family for spare boxes or visit your local supermarket to see if they have any in the stockroom for you to have. If you've paid for a comprehensive moving service, cardboard boxes may be provided, but it's best to double-check what your service includes to ensure you have everything you need on the day.


Pack Your Most Used Items Last - If you're struggling to get started with packing, a great place to begin is by packing the items you use the least first. If you have a loft or cupboard full of items you hardly use (but don't want to throw away), you can pack these first without impacting your daily life. As moving day approaches, gradually work your way towards packing items that are more frequently used. For fragile items like crockery or ornaments, use protective packaging like bubble wrap or newspaper & ensure they are tightly packed in their boxes so they can't move around too much or break during the journey between houses.


Label Everything - Make sure boxes are clearly labeled. You don't have to list everything in each box, but even writing which room it's for (e.g., kitchen, bedroom 1) will help the removal company know which room to take the box to & will assist you when unpacking at the new home. Stock up on parcel tape & pens & share them out to each family member so they can pack their own bedrooms.


Try to Schedule a Weekday Move - If possible, a weekday move is more beneficial for several reasons: There'll be less traffic on the roads, fewer people around, & there should be more removal companies to choose from by avoiding a weekend date. If you have children, moving on a weekday means they'll be at school, safely out of the way, & get to come back to a new home after their school day.


Recruit Helpers - If you can & think you might need to, ask for help from those close to you to ease the load on moving day. An extra person helping will get the work done faster, which will lower stress levels & give you more time for enjoying your new home. If you anticipate needing an extra pair of hands on the day, make sure you specify this on your Shiply listing so companies can source the necessary staff.


Keep in Contact with Your Chosen Company - If there are any changes that may affect how your chosen removal company can help you on the day, make sure you let them know so they are aware in advance. For example, if you're not allowed in the new home until a later time than agreed or if you need more vehicle space than anticipated.


Arrange Cleaning in the Old House - Whether you're cleaning it yourself or hiring a professional cleaning company, make sure you leave the old house empty, clean, & tidy for the next owners to move in. If you don't want to take cleaning products to the new place, you might want to leave items like cloths or bleach for the new owners to use.


Pack a Moving Day Bag - A great idea is for everyone to have their own moving bag packed with essentials for the first few days in your new home. This will save you from having to unpack boxes prematurely or waste time desperately searching for a phone charger in a sea of boxes. Good things to include in a moving day bag would be a toothbrush, toilet roll, a change of clothes, & a toolkit.
