Six Questions You Should Ask Before Hiring a Man and Van Company…
Can you rely on a word of mouth? Of course, you can. However, when it comes to hiring a professional Man and Van Company, you can’t take a risk, as it’s all about your precious belongings and expenditures as well. Though, you can trust the reputation, and the friendly recommendations too, but it’s always better to flood a company with some important questions so that you can stay away from any kind of disillusioned state…
I’ve arranged a list of 6 ultimate questions, after carefully canvassing all the possible angles of all the professional removal companies. Therefore, keep these questions in your mind, if you’re pondering hiring a professional ‘Man and Van Removal Company’.
- Tell Me About Your Work Experience…
Experience related questions can facilitate you to identify a lot more regarding the company. If they’d have excellent past experiences, they’d, of course, be happy to share them with you; they’d do their best to satisfy the needs of this question. In case you sense the company is a tad reluctant to share its experiences, there’s a possibility that they’re rather new in this regime, or they probably have lost their positive reputation. Besides, if some removal company is truly genuine, it would indeed put its reputation on the boards, in its office, for making an impression on its clients.
- Do You Have a Professional Staff?
The professional companies only hire professional staff, or they have top-quality staff development programs for their employees. If it’s your first time, you need to realize the gravity of this question, as staff is everything; things are utterly dependent on them. From moving to packing, loading to unloading, they “actually” play the real game. If they’d be incompetent, they would look for a quick fix, and damage your belongings. In addition, they won’t take your advice seriously, and attempt to manipulate you with some erroneous moves. Moreover, if a company is genuinely and utterly relying on incompetent staff, you could lose something precious as well during the entire process.
- Can I See Your Certification?
Official documents separate the casual cowboys from the professionals. Therefore, never forget this question. Almost every good Man and Van Company keeps an official document to assure their clients that they’re in the business on a serious level. Since, it’s a high-value job; the clients hand their precious thousands of dollars in the hands of others. In some cases, millions of dollars are at stake. For that reason, if some company is working without any kind of certification, it’s better to avoid it at all cost. On some level, you can give and take on other points, but this is something which can turn the entire experience into pain. And, in case something goes against you, you won’t be able to blame the company either.
- Do You Have Well Maintained Vans?
If vans of a removal company aren’t capable of providing super flexibility to bulkier items, there is no point in hiring that company. Vehicles are the ornaments of every removal company; if they aren’t flexible and well maintained, they can invite a lot of troubles and weaken your furniture – especially. Usually, the vehicles are of 2 different sizes – Luton and Transit… Luton is big, and it has the ability to move entire small bedrooms and offices; if you’re living in a 2 bedroom apartment, it’s better to opt for Luton. On the other hand, Transit is generally used for small furniture collections. Though, it doesn’t have the ability to carry the burden like Luton, but it’s still the best choice for smaller flat moves. However, you don’t have to worry regarding selecting any one of them. It’s a task of a removal company; they select it after analyzing your needs.
It’s not only about well maintained vehicles; it’s about trained drivers too. We all know that our belongings have a million-dollar worth, and we can’t hand them in the hands of an incompetent driver. While asking about the vehicles, it’s better to express that you need only trained drivers. Though, almost every removal company keep the fleet of trained driver, but it’s still good to shed light on this issue, especially if you’ve fragile items, or if you’re pondering moving an immensely expensive product. Besides, this question is also greatly important in case you’re heading for different region (internationally). Of course, in those conditions, you would only want that driver who has a winner’s trophy.
- Are You Offering Packaging Services?
Who doesn’t want packaging services? Of course, everyone does! We all want our possessions to remain safe… And, professional Man and Van Companies perceive this exceedingly well. That’s why, they offer packaging services too to their customers; they believe packaging is a sign, visible sign, that exhibits to their clients that how good they’re in their work, and how much they care for their goods. However, regrettably, most of the customers commit a mistake on this concern; they don’t ask regarding packaging services, or its charges, and, in the end, assume that the removal company has tricked them. Therefore, if you need packaging service, have utter details about it; ask about its charges, material, and etc. The company would gladly provide you all the details and facilitate you too in picking the best package… If you’d avoid asking this question, you’d challenge your own pockets. Since, packaging is a low-hanging fruit in a removal process, but it’s not free.
Each morsel of information is valuable. Therefore, remember and ask these above questions before making your final decision, as these questions are like support networks which banish unexpected worries and allow you to take better decisions. In case you get all the impeccable answers, you can assume that you’re probably dealing with some genuine company, and it knows how to deal with the client’s belongings professionally.
Lastly, don’t trap in the glitz and glamour of low prices, as most companies attempt to lure the new customers through it. However, if you’d ask the above questions, and receive unsullied answers, this issue won’t stay as well; you can calm your nerves and trust your decision, and hand your responsibility in the hands of that company…
