As the saying goes, you rarely get something for nothing. Why then are we surprised when we buy something online with free delivery and it doesn’t arrive on time?!
We know it’s not free. We know someone still has to deliver it. We know that someone has to be paid. So why then are we all still a sucker for free delivery? At Boxes for Moving Home we try to take an honest approach to everything, especially the dark arts surrounding delivery…
Let’s face it, no-one likes waiting in all day to receive a parcel that never arrives. We’ve all been there…
You’ve arranged to work from home so you can accept delivery. Worse still, you’ve taken a day off work.
Whilst our packing materials nearly always arrive the next working day, some do occasionally take a little longer, which is why we’re careful not to guarantee next day delivery.
Whilst halting your house hunt because you’ve finally found your forever home is a fantastic feeling, it’s a universal truth that moving house is a little less fun.
Between packing up your entire life’s possessions, transporting them safely to your new home, and then settling in, moving house can be chaotic and stressful.
It doesn’t have to be though. Here at Boxes for Moving Home we like to think we’ve acquired a fair bit of knowledge about moving. With this in mind, we’ve put together our top tips for moving house.
We’ve all been there. Moving day is looming and it’s got to the point where you can no longer postpone packing up all your possessions. The thought of packing up your family heirlooms and fragile valuables can be a daunting prospect.
What if, in transit, your treasured breakables, well, break? Fortunately we’ve got some top packing hacks right here which will help reduce the potential for any disasters come moving day.
It’s astonishing how many people call on a Friday in a panic because they’re moving over the weekend.
The first question they always ask is if we can guarantee delivery the following morning.
Each time it happens I immediately wonder how the hell they’re going to pack up everything in one day!
In the early days, when we were green behind the ears, we’d say yes, cross our fingers and hope the courier delivered our packing boxes on time.
Now we know better.
Have you noticed how many sites now offer a price match guarantee? Usually attached to an asterisk that affords them every opportunity to wriggle out of whatever commitment it is they’re trying to make!
Who goes back to such a site once they’ve found a better price?
Is a price match guarantee not in fact just saying we could charge you less but we reckon we can trick you into paying more? Boxes for Moving Home sets the prices for its industry standard packing boxes as low as it can and combines them with a first class customer service. If we’re not the cheapest then it might be for a good reason.
You’ve finally agreed the sale of your property and can now start looking forward to life in your new home.
First though you’ll have to confront the daunting task of shifting all your stuff from one place to another.
Your first dilemma will be whether or not to use a removal company.
As the landscape online becomes more and more competitive, it becomes harder and harder to differentiate one service from another.
This increase in choice leads to a reduction in price as we all fight for market share.
It also makes it hard for the consumer to settle on the right decision.
