If your belongings are damaged due to a lack of care by the removal staff, you have a right to challenge this. Ensuring that you are home during the move can certify that you witness any events of poor handling and a lack of care which you can later contest through consumer law. Although you can’t catch everything through observing the process, taking photos of any packed fragile and valuable items can help to avoid damage or loss.
First and foremost, always ensure that your removals service provides a contract for you to sign. If a company provides you with a contract, but some of the clauses seem unclear, you have the right to question this and ask for a rewritten contract. You can even refuse to sign the contract and seek out a new removals service if it creates a large cause for concern.
If the terms and conditions of your contract seem unclear, you have a right to question the provider about their costs, including any fees or charges if the move takes longer than expected. It may also refer to if your agreed payment is charged at an hourly rate or flat rate. This will certify that you do not receive a bill much higher than what you anticipated at the end of your moving process.
