Each house move is distinct, so having multiple quotes to compare enables you to find the ideal service for your relocation. With thousands of registered companies, you'll have a wider selection of assistance options on moving day and more control over the price.

Advantages of Utilizing Shiply for Your House Relocation


Shiply has thousands of registered removal companies prepared to send you a quote for your house move, providing you with more options for types of companies, services, and prices. Using Shiply saves time as you only need to create one listing, allowing removal companies to come to you instead of having to contact each company individually. Our online form is user-friendly; simply answer a few questions about your specific house relocation, such as whether you reside in a house or flat, the number of rooms, and the addresses of both the old and new home, and your listing will be live in no time.


Choosing Shiply is also more environmentally friendly. Our registered moving companies schedule their jobs around existing work in your area or utilize spare space in what would otherwise be an empty or partially-full vehicle. This means your house move will often have a lower negative impact on the environment. As your belongings will be using otherwise wasted space in vehicles, our removal companies can offer cheaper prices for the same high standards of service you'd 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.


Types of Removal Services Available on Shiply


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


A partial-service offers some of the same features as a full service but not all. Typically, a part-service includes loading and unloading at both ends but does not include packing assistance. This type of service would be best for those who are available on the day to be involved in the move but may need an extra pair of hands or 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 and cost-effective option. Self-service can be either renting a van 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 and don't need a team to assist with packing and 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 each quote includes so you know exactly what to expect and how to prepare for moving day. Before accepting a quote, we recommend checking the Shiply profile of each company to verify their insurances, accreditations, and feedback from other Shiply users. Once you've decided which company to go with, accept your chosen quote and make sure to inform your selected company of any changes that may affect them leading up to your moving date.


Preparing for Your House Relocation


There are many things to do to prepare for moving day that will help everything run more smoothly and minimize stress. Here are some tips to help you in the lead-up to your relocation:


  • Inform people about your move, including loved ones, energy providers, your bank, and Royal Mail. Make a list of everyone you need to notify and work your way down one by one.

  • Declutter and get rid of items you don't want to keep, especially if your new home has less storage space. Sell higher-value items, donate to charity, or give away to friends and family.

  • Ask supermarkets for leftover cardboard boxes or visit your local grocery store to see if they have any in the stockroom for you to have.

  • Pack your least-used items first and gradually work your way towards packing more regularly used items as moving day approaches. Use protective packaging for fragile items and ensure they are tightly packed.

  • Label boxes clearly with the room they're for to help the removal company know where to take them and assist you when unpacking.

  • If possible, schedule a weekday move to avoid traffic, fewer people around, and have more removal companies to choose from.

  • Ask for help from those close to you to ease the load on moving day. Specify this on your Shiply listing so companies can source the necessary staff.

  • Keep in contact with your chosen company and inform them of any changes that may affect how they can help you on the day.

  • Arrange cleaning in the old house, either by doing it yourself or hiring a professional cleaning service.

  • Pack a moving day bag with essentials for the first few days in your new home, such as a toothbrush, toilet paper, a change of clothes, and a toolkit.

Relocating to and from Boston, Lincolnshire, UK


Boston, a town in Lincolnshire, UK, is a popular destination for people moving for various reasons. Some individuals relocate to Boston for job opportunities, as the town has a diverse economy with a mix of agriculture, food processing, and manufacturing industries. Others may move to Boston for its affordable housing prices compared to larger cities, making it an attractive option for families and first-time buyers.


The town's rich history and cultural heritage also draw people to the area, with attractions such as St. Botolph's Church (known as "The Stump") and the Boston Guildhall. Additionally, Boston's proximity to the Lincolnshire coast and countryside appeals to those seeking a balance between urban amenities and natural beauty.


On the other hand, some people may move away from Boston for career advancement, to be closer to family, or to experience life in a larger city. Whatever the reason for relocating to or from Boston, using a reliable removal company can help make the process smoother and less stressful.

Couriers on Shiply are able to provide all levels of service and can help pack your items, just ensure you inform them of your needs.

Will My Goods Be Tied Up Securely?

Can Items Be Taken Upstairs?

Yes, items can be taken upstairs if needed, and can also be assembled. Transport providers on Shiply are happy to provide these services, but you should ensure that you are mentioning these requirements in your listings as it may mean a second person is required for the move.

Can I Change The Address Of The Delivery?

If you have not yet accepted a quote then you are able to change the address of your listing. Note that editing details of your listing after publishing will result in active quotes being voided, so you will have to wait for new quotes to come in. If you have already accepted a quote and need to change the address, please let your transport provider know and contact us at .

Will The Movers Help With Unpacking?

Transport providers on Shiply are able to help with your house move on both ends (packing and unpacking), but you should make sure they are informed of this requirement as they may need to plan for this.
