If you have insufficient space or storage space in your new place you may also rent storage space from the facilities of the removals company.
People mostly simply let the removals company transport their things. This is because lifting, loading and unloading demands manpower and equipment.

This would be inconvenient and even more expensive in the end.

Since you already know which things you want to let them handle, you should show and tell them everything that’s expected of them. This is important so they can give you an accurate quote. Get quotes from at least 3 companies.
Compare Prices and Services
