HOW DO WE SELECT A REMOVAL COMPANY?
A Good Move will only select removal companies that carry the quality mark of “Erkende Verhuizers”, which are certified by the branch organisation of professional and certified removal companies. A removal company that conducts its business by using this quality mark will for example have high standards for: Quality and experience (only companies with at least a 8,5 out of 10 will be selected), Standard damage insurance up to €100.000,-
Environmental and safety regulations, ARBO = good working conditions for moving staff. Also, every certified removal company submits itself to an independent dispute committee. Should a client and a company end up in a situation that cannot be solved without interference of a third party (going to court), this committee can be addressed and will judge on the outcome of this issue.
WHAT DOES A HOUSE MOVE COST
The cost for a professional house move varies. The charge depends on numerous factors, for example: how much volume (cubic metres), pack and/or unpack boxes by client or company, dismantling and re-assembling of furniture. Questions like: are there some or many items that need special attention and extra wrapping, is storage needed or not, is an outside elevator or parking permit needed at either address, what is the distance between the old and new address, does this move need to be done during peak season (school holidays) or low season etc. We hope you understand that cost depends on many different matters.
Just to give you some idea of charge; For approx. €1200 – €1500 a professional company can bring your small household from A --> B locally or semi-interlocal. For €3000 you can have your larger household transferred including some extra options such as packing fragile/kitchen items or dismantling/re-assembling and outside elevator. Again, these costs depend on a lot of indicators and will only be known after a professional survey.
ONLY LOCAL REMOVALS?
A Good Move knows and has contact with many companies in The Netherlands, in Europe and oversees. The selection with regard to your move reaches beyond the local companies from your current address.
