What's Involved In A Typical Removal Company Home Survey?

Friday 20th November 2020

First time moving house and wondering what is involved in a removal company home survey? Well, we can’t speak for everyone but we thought you may find it helpful to know what is involved in a Hackworthy & Sons home survey

We believe that the best way to get a removal company home survey is by visiting the house of those looking to move. This is the easiest way for both parties to determine what needs to be moved and gives the opportunity for everyone to ask questions as and when they come up throughout the survey. 

We know that some removal company home surveys are a way of hard-selling their service to the customer, but we aren’t about that at Hackworthy and all of our surveys and home removal quotes are provided free with no obligation. Moving house is stressful enough as it is, the least you need is your removal company home survey to add to the stress. 

Typically a home survey with us will involve a member of the team visiting your home to view the contents and assess what access is needed to the property ( for example, is there a parking space for the removal van to use? Or is the property above ground level etc). By carrying out a home visit, all you need to do is be at the property to let us in. We would recommend that you walk around the property with us, this enables us to be aware of any areas which have things in need of moving that aren't obvious to those who don’t live in the home. However, if you’re busy with children or work from home, then we can survey the house on our own and come together with you at the end to ask/answer any questions and discuss the next steps in the process. Our home surveys usually last between 15 and 45 minutes, depending on the size of your property, so we’d recommend putting aside about an hour or so for this. 

Following our survey of your home, we will send you a written home removal quote for you to consider in your own time, to help you choose the right removal company for you. However, during this time please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions that come up during your decision process and we will happily help.

Hackworthy & Sons understands that life responsibilities can mean that you don’t always have the time to do these things at a convenient time for both parties. If you lead a busy life or just aren’t keen on home visits at the moment, we can offer you a visit-free removal quotation. Whether this is doing a virtual survey or filling out our online quotation form, the choice is yours. 

Overall a Hackworthy removal company home survey offers you:

  • The chance to ask any questions and queries relating to your move 
  • An experienced team member surveying your property, whether this be a home visit or a video survey 
  • Hassle-free, no-obligation service
  • A written quotation for your consideration, with support at the end of the phone
