Does anyone know the approximate costs of removals companies?

Specifically I'm going to be moving stuff from a reasonably full mid-size 3 bedroom house approximately 100 miles. Like with storage firms, websites are bloody useless. They want to give me exact quotes, or send people out to asess my needs. All I want at this stage is a ballpark figure - I want to know if I'm talking about 250 quid or 2000 quid for this sort of thing in order to consider alternatives such as friends, family and van hire.

At the very low end, a single move involving a great big bed and about ten or so pieces of Ikea furniture that were too big to fit in our car moved 15 miles, in Ver North, was barely into triple digits. One of the pieces of Ikea was too big to leave the room and so the mover took it to pieces (in a way that meant it could be reassembled; we weren't sure they were that well-made, but apparently they are - at least for one remake) for an extra £30 or so. He estimated about twice that at first but took just the 30-ish upon seeing our desperation. Cash in hand probably helped.

With more to move, a longer journey and people wanting London rates, I think you're probably looking at somewhere between 250 and 500 sterlings.
