- Get a fixed fee quote.
Moving house can be a costly business and one way to save yourself hundreds of pounds is by getting a fixed fee quote. You will know exactly what you will be spending up front, with no nasty hidden extras. If you receive a quote from one firm that is significantly lower than other quotes, make sure it includes all fees (always read the small print!). Remember, if it looks too good to be true, it probably is!
