Additional important factors that could affect the cost of moving:

Volume: the amount of belongings that need to be moved on the day. This is important as it will determine the size of the vehicle needed to complete the move as well as determining how many trips would need to be made if there is a vast amount of load. The Smart Logistics will ensure that quality checks and risk is assessed to ensure that the move can be carried out safely.

Accessibility: this is assessing the accessibility of the current home and to the home that the items will be moved to. Things to factor in is how close the van can park outside the houses to easily load and offload the household items.

Fragile Items: this includes any special and/or fragile items that need to be handled with care and that need extra protection. This can include items that are sentimental or expensive antiques that are of significant value.

Moving Day: The day that you decide to move will also affect the cost. For instance, if a customer decides to move on the weekend, it may cost them more as opposed to moving during the week during off-peak hours when it is less busy.

Whilst some of these factors do play a role in the added cost of the moving process, rest assured that The Smart Logistics will always ensure that they thoroughly assess each enquiry fairly as well as price matching efficiently to suit the need of the customer.

Top tips in helping to keep moving costs down:

Declutter: Decluttering packaging and getting rid of items that are not needed to be taken to your new home. This helps saves space and speeds up the moving process.

Book your slot in advance: Weekends are the busiest periods as compared to during the week. Booking in advance helps you be more prepared and have the flexibility in choosing the best available slots.
