I have completed the removals form, how long does it take to get a removals quote?

Once you have requested a removals quote, this is then allocated to our partner network. Companies that are interested in completing your job will then be in contact to offer you a quotation based on the information you have provided. This will typically happen within 24 hours.

What companies do moving quote compare use?

We work with removal companies throughout the UK, Ireland & Europe so are able to offer a wide range of companies who can assist in your move. Also by comparing prices from multiple companies you are able to choose a price and service that meets your budget and requirements.

Will my goods be insured in transit?

The companies we work with are reputable companies. Depending on the value of the goods you are moving, you should request a suitable level of Goods In Transit cover from your chosen provider to be included in your quotation.

Do I have to pay to receive quotes?

No, getting quotes is completely free, and by putting the job out to multiple companies increases the chance of you finding a better service and price by creating competition between companies quoting on your job.

Am I obliged to book once I receive a quotation?

You are under no obligation to book anything. Getting quotes allows you to compare the market and see what prices are available. If you do not get a quote that meets your requirements, you are free to look elsewhere.
