What Are The Differences Between A Storage Company And A Removal Company?

13May 2015

Lots of people looking to move house always have this question on their mind. We start wondering after packing all the boxes, sorting all the estate agent’s and lawyer’s fees if we are making the right decision about which company to actually hire. Undertaking relocation is something that is tiring and taxing both financially and physically and nothing is worse than having spent all that money and then coming to the point that you’re wondering if you’ve made the right decision. There can often come a point where you are coming up short on your lease and you’re not really sure what to do when your moving date is maybe in about a couple of weeks and you’re left stuck with all your stuff and not sure where to place it. In this short guide, we have outlined differences between storage and a removal company that will make your life easier going forward:


A removals company is a company that will help you shift all your belongings to the new house. Typically you find one through friends or family or searching for them on the internet. The most common type of removal company in London is the man with van which can move all your stuff without you having to worry about doing it all yourself. It is typically impossible to move heavy stuff and furniture removals services are important for stuff such as beds, sofas and all the other things like dining tables.Sometimes you pay these people an upfront deposit depending on the payment methods they use such as cash or card or you pay them after their job is done. These types of companies, provided they are legitimate, are often safe, secure and reliable and get your moving done without any hassle. They have a fast turnaround and always aim to deliver on time. Most people invest in a removal company because they don’t often have the means to move everything themselves and find that it works out so much easier and better for them. It also means that they can concentrate on the other things that they need to have sorted out for their house move.


A storage company is absolutely ideal for those who have a break in between moving and sometimes cannot find someone to move their goods without some sort of other variant factor involved. They offer excellent services by helping you store all your goods for a certain fee securely at one of their warehouses. That ensures your goods are always safe and never damaged, lost or stolen as that is the last thing you need when you are moving house. This type of option is often and usually used by people who need to shift offices as well as those who are moving or leaving University as it is not always easy to be a student and have everything in order when you move in. These types of companies are ideal for someone who wants peace of mind during their moving transit.
