1. Ask for recommendations Word-of-mouth referrals are invaluable as they come from people who have experience of the service. You may have friends or family who have moved recently so why not ask who performed their removal. Another fantastic way to ask for recommendations is on Facebook local groups. Again, you will receive recommendations from people who have used removal companies and get their views on the service. Once you have a shortlist of removal companies you can move on to the next stage. 2. Look at online reviews. Look at Google Reviews and Facebook Reviews for the companies in your shortlist. A great removals companies will have lots of excellent reviews from previous customers. If any companies do not have any reviews or lots of negative reviews, remove them from your shortlist.
