When you hire a team of movers to help you pack up and leave, you think about several things. For example, how long will the entire move take to load up a removal van or how long will it take? Questions like these are not uncommon to a removals company, and we try our best to answer every one of your queries. 

The simple answer to this is that it depends. No two jobs are the same, and each time a removals team loads up a van, it will be different. Things like dismantling furniture or how many floors of the property are supposed to be packed can all play a role in the time it will take. 

The solution

If you’re super curious as to how long it could take a removals team to load up their moving van for you, the best thing is for you to get an estimate. 

At I Like To, we offer clients home surveys that help determine the amount of work needed. It also helps figure out how long it can take to load up the moving van. 

For smaller homes, I Like To offers a free online home survey. It can help someone with a small to medium-sized property figure out pricing, duration, and other details. 

However, for clients with large properties, we recommend an on-site survey. An on-site survey is not only several times more accurate, but it helps determine many other things too.

Benefits of doing home surveys

Our team believes that doing home surveys before you begin your contract with a removals company is essential. It helps you figure out costs, timing, and the amount of work involved. 

Plus, doing a home survey also allows the removals company to organize their work schedule according to your needs more efficiently. 

It will allow them to put in more tailored work and helps both parties plan ahead of time. If you’re hiring a removals company, doing a home survey before the move is your best bet.
