Choosing A Removals Company

Moving is stressful and as such, there are professionals all around us to help out. These include estate agents, solicitors and of course, removal companies. Packing is an arduous task in itself and then physically loading all the items up and delivering your goods to your new home can be really testing.

With that being said, here’s some things to think about when choosing a removals company and some advice on choosing the right one for you.

Check Feedback

The first step you should take when deciding to hire a removals company is to check their feedback. Make sure that you trawl the internet and find out things like pricing, efficiency and overall customer services as these are all aspects that can have a significant impact on moving home day.  From our research, we have found MoveCorp to be pretty reputable with great reviews and looks to be competitively priced.

Ask A Removals Company For A Survey

It’s difficult for any removals company to assess exactly what needs to be done to provide an accurate quote. A good removal company will either visit your home prior to moving to see what requires to be moved in order to give a more concise quote or ask you to provide pictures or at least an honest and accurate inventory of what is required to move.

Check The Companies Insurance

It’s always a good idea to ask a prospect moving company about the level of insurance you have for any goods in transit with them. This will put your mind at ease if you’re transporting items of value.

If the removals company doesn’t provide insurance it’s a great idea to provide your own cover to avert any issues arising on the moving day itself.

Find Out How You’re Going To Be Paying

Be aware of companies that insist on large deposits for moving. Reputable companies should offer a credit or debit card payment method as well as cash.

Find Out If They Offer Packing Boxes

Lots of removals companies offer lend packing boxes, which can save you money on sourcing your own. It might also be a good idea to ask the company if they assemble/dissemble the boxes so that you know what to expect.

First Impressions are very important

When you first make contact with the removals company this is where your judge of character can work miracles. Do they seem friendly? Are they helpful? Are they going that extra mile? The company will be transporting your entire and it makes sense that you should have some form of good first impression.

Whichever company you choose, make sure that you do not take the decision lightly and you do your homework – it will be hugely advantageous in the long term.

Reasons to Rent a Villa Instead of Hotel Room

Vacations are important for our mental as well as physical health and which place is better for relaxation than the Caribbean? The Caribbean islands are the no. 1 vacation destination for most people. All the islands are unique and provide diverse tourist attractions that you can find nowhere else. The Caribbean islands are perfect for people who like peace and quiet however; getting this peace becomes difficult when you are touring according to a travel plan along with a bunch of noisy people. That is why you should travel the Caribbean on your own and rent villas instead of staying at a hotel with your travel buddies.

Among many islands of the Caribbean, St. Lucia is a popular island with the most prominent tourist attraction being the Pitons, a pair of dramatically tapered mountains. St. Lucia Villas are great for relaxing and the best way to get your money’s worth out of the vacation. This article will tell you the reason why renting a villa in St. Lucia is better than renting a hotel room.

No Immediate Neighbors to Disturb You

One of the biggest advantages of renting a villa is that you won’t have any neighbors or fellow vacationers knocking on your door every ten minutes. The fellow holiday makers can be real annoying in case you wanted a peaceful and relaxing vacation as they constantly drag you out for group activities. It is hard to relax and sleep at night while people are making noises in the other room. Hotels are not the best choice in this case and a villa prevents any unwanted disturbance.

Have the Pool and Sunbed to Yourself

Most people would like to catch up on their beauty sleep on a sunbed and splash in a pool on vacations. But sometimes, this simple task can become difficult if you have to share your sunbed and pool with a group of people. A private villa proves to be god-send in this situation. You can waste away the whole day on your sunbed in your villa or take a swim in the pool without having anyone disturb you or depriving you of your precious relaxing moments.

Villas are better for Families

If you are on holiday with kids, then renting a villa has more benefits for you. Most hotel rooms accommodate two adults but you can squeeze in a child’s bed. However, if you family has more than one kid then a hotel room is largely insufficient. Villas are like homes and usually have extra rooms as well as entertainments like inflatable pools, DVDs and other children’s activities to keep them occupied. A villa also has a proper kitchen so that you can cook for the whole family at convenience.

Search for the Best Deal

Package holidays have everything planned according to a specific schedule and place. There are fewer chances that you will get the most out of your vacation on a package holiday. There is also uncertainty about whether you are getting the best deal or simply wasting your holiday with mediocre services. It is better to plan your own holiday and rent a villa if you want to make the most out of your holiday.
