As in any industry, there are good removal firms and bad ones. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the job, there’s also the odd instance where people encounter a a criminal removal company. Luckily, Uckfield is less likely to suffer from scam house removals than somewhere like London, Manchester, Glasgow – or any other large British city but it is important to be aware.
We understand that prospective clients might not choose Ranger Removals. It’s naïve to think people don’t shop around, and while we believe ourselves to be the Uckfield area’s top choice for all types of removal, you might make a different assessment. But regardless, we want to make sure that you steer clear of any removal company that might try and overcharge you, or worse – look to steal your belongings.
Secure a Written Quote – When searching around for a company that will carry out house removals in Uckfield, it’s worth asking for a written quote. This is good practice, and while over the phone quotes with a reputable removal company you’ve used before might suffice, some firms might try and charge you extra later on because you don’t have the original price in writing.
Do Some Research – It’s worth conducting some rudimentary research before committing to a removal company. Google their name and see what clients have to say about them. If you struggle to find positive testimonials, you’d do well to steer clear of them. Browsing around to see if any other Uckfield residents have stories of being scammed by a removal company may also save you running into the very same offenders!
No Website? Avoid! – On that note, if you can’t find a removal firm’s official website, your danger sense should be tingling. In this day and age, no true removal company would think to operate without a well-put together website (at Ranger Removals, we rather like our own)! This could be a red flag that the company you’ve seen advertised (beware Gumtree) isn’t what they say they are.
Ask Some Questions – If you have a specific query regarding house removals, ask the company you’re eyeing for the job. Don’t be afraid to ask them what makes them qualified to handle a removal, and if they have additional references available to peruse. It’s their job after all, and a failure to produce concrete answers, or general hesitation, could be a sign that the person on the other end of the phone/email is looking to exploit your trust.
