Soho, the London district with an eye for fashion, quality and all around cool. You’d be hard pressed to find a place which exudes quite as much pizazz. Westminster and the West End is an all round great place to move to, with an upmarket restaurant on every other street and a bevy of nightclubs to suit all musical tastes. If all of this sounds good, then Soho is the place to be.

So, thinking of moving? Well, one of the many things you’ll have to take care of before you can is to hire a removal company. These companies aren’t essential to the moving process, but they can be extremely helpful, especially if you are moving a lot of goods. They don’t only provide a van and all of the equipment required to get your stuff into it, they also put at your disposal a team of staff, who can help you with the packing, unpacking as well as the disassembly and reassembly of flat packed furniture. A good removal firm will also provide great customer service and will provide said service with a friendly demeanour. This might seem like it doesn’t matter, but hiring staff that give you more in return than the absolute minimum ‘job well done’ can help, especially if the move is a stressful one.

A moving company can add a lot to a move. They handle so much of the hard work so you don’t have to, and as a result, they can make a normally stress filled experience a real breeze. However, before just going off and hiring the cheapest Soho mover you can find you should definitely put some effort into research. The reason I say this is that you need to make sure you’re getting not only getting a good monetary deal, but a good one on the service front too. As I mentioned and explained above, a mover can take a lot of the work out of moving, and you need to make sure you hire one that’ll do just that.

Here are some of the best ways to find the correct Soho removal firm;

1. Ask around

Asking around is the most simple and effective way of finding a good company of any type. If you have any family, friends or neighbours that have moved in the relative past then you can ask them for recommendations. Did they have a good moving experience or not? If they did, then you can look into the company that they hired, if not, then you have one to stay away from.

In a similar vein, you can also search the web. There are web sites that are set up purely for customers to offer advice, recommendations and reviews of companies they’ve hired. Use their opinions to make a short list.

2. Check credentials and services

Once you’ve narrowed your search down to four or five, lets cut it down even further. Check each companies credentials first, (see how they train and employ their staff for example) and see if they offer the services they need. These services can range from the flat pack disassembly that I mentioned earlier, to the correct van size. Just make sure that they’re the right fit.

3. Ask for cost estimates (don’t forget about hidden fees)

Now that you’re down to a select couple, you can ask for an estimate. See if it’s worth the money. Don’t just leave it there though, a lot of the time, companies will leave certain costs out of their estimate (fuel, service taxes, etc). Ask that they include everything, so you know what you’ll be paying at the end of the day. You can live without any nasty surprises, thank you very much.

Putting some time into researching your Soho removal companies is an often overlooked practice, and it can save so many headaches for not much effort at all. All it takes is a few clicks of a mouse and a few phone calls to secure the best possible moving experience. Just think on.
