12. Removal costs
In addition to the deposit, rent in advance and agent fees, you will need to think about the cost of moving your belongings from one place to another. Costs will vary depending on how far you are moving and how much needs to be moved.
We recommend getting several quotes to get the best value for money. A person with a van maybe a more affordable option, but you should check whether the service has insurance against damage. You should also check availability, as they may require you to book in advance, particularly if you are planning to move over a public holiday.
Other options to reduce costs could be hiring a van yourself, or getting help from family and friends.
