Helpful tips on moving home and packing
1. Book a Removal Company
Once you’ve decluttered your personal belongings and have a rough idea of what you’ll be taking, now you should book your removals and storage company. You could attempt to do it yourself, but it would be a lot of added stress and time.
The removal and storage company will have many years’ experience of carefully packing, handling and loading delicate and heavy items so they arrive safely at your new house.
2. Declutter your Belongings
Decluttering is essential to do every now and then, but it’s even more important before moving house. Before even attempting to pack, you should decide what to sell, donate or throw out. By decluttering, you'll also keep your removal and storage costs down too.
You’ll be glad of it come moving day and believe us, the removal guys will be glad that they don’t need to shift your lava lamp, inflatable chair and broken down computers.
4. Create an Inventory
Creating an inventory helps you to keep an eye on all your belongings to make sure nothing is lost throughout the whole moving house process. Following a moving house checklist will also help.
Your removal and storage company can create an inventory for you if they have been hired to pack your belongings so this is also worth considering.
5. Start Packing Least Used Rooms
A good starting point will be rooms and items you use the least. The spare bedroom, garage or attic are usually easy places to start.
Leave everyday items until the day before the move and keep any essentials items such as medication separately.
3. Pack as Early as Possible
Once you compare surveyors, get conveyancing quotes, and set your moving date, then it's time to start packing.
Make a start on packing as soon as you can. Get together a plan of action with a room by room checklist of how you will pack along with all of the packing material you’ll need.
6. Arrange your utilities early
It’s important to set up your utilities such as council tax, gas and home insurance early when moving house. Not only will this save you a lot of stress once you’re moved in, but you will have more time to settle in and relax in your new home.
To save valuable time and money sorting your utilities out, make sure you use Just Move In. They will save you up to 8 hours of administration time setting up utility services.
How to choose a removal company
Whether you are moving next door, down the road, to another town, or even to another country, choosing the right removal and storage company can make all the difference when moving home.
Do you need a removal and storage company?
Never underestimate the amount of physical and mental organisation it takes to move the contents of your home to a new one. Packing boxes is one thing, but lugging them in and out of vans and up and down stairs is another, and can be extremely exhausting, especially if you're on a tight deadline to vacate the property. If you've a sizeable amount to shift, or lots of valuable items, such as antique furniture or fragile pieces, it's best to choose a removal and storage company to take the burden off your shoulders, so you can concentrate on organising the rest of your move.
Get a number of quotes
Make sure that you get several professional quotes well in advance of any proposed completion date. Take into account the price, the service you will receive and when the companies are able to conduct the move. For extra ease and convenience, many larger removal companies will offer a packing service, too, so that you can be confident that everything will be taken care of.
Many will give you an instant indicative quote online, but it's better to get a detailed assessment from the removal and storage company. Most removal companies will send out a sales estimator to see what you have to move. This allows them to price the quote more accurately and should help you choose a removal and storage company more easily.
Give yourself enough time
The quotation process can take a couple of weeks and finding an available date might take another couple of weeks, so give yourself enough time to choose a removal and storage company. Remember, many removal and storage companies are booked up weeks in advance, so it pays to start looking for a removal company well before your completion date is due.
If you can, provide your removal and storage company with details of your new property's access points and layout, so they are aware of what to expect when they get there. For example, how many flights of stairs are there, will furniture fit through the doors, are there any alternative access routes?
Make sure you're insured
Most removal and storage companies will provide you with dedicated moving insurance against loss or breakages of your property while it's in transit. Make sure this is the case before booking anyone. You should also contact your home contents insurer to find out if your current policy will insure your property while it's being moved, too.
Negotiate on price
If you're comfortable negotiating the price, see if you can get any discounts from the removal and storage company. Be aware that moving house at peak times, such as Saturdays and during school holidays, will be more expensive, as demand is usually very high at these times. If you can, try and arrange to move on a normal weekday when it might be cheaper and there may be more room for a discount.
It's a good idea to check that any removal and storage companies you contact are members of either The British Association of Removers or The National Guild of Removers and Storers. These organisations are dedicated to providing excellence in the removals industry for the benefit of both removal companies and their customers. They set standards and a code of conduct for their members, so you should be reassured of their professionalism and conduct at all times.
Get a recommendation
The best way to choose a removal and storage company is from a positive recommendation from a friend or family member. This takes away much of the uncertainty surrounding service expectations if you can be reasonably sure of their performance with other customers.
If you can't get a recommendation, then trust your instincts and go with the company that has demonstrated professionalism, helpfulness and friendliness in your contact with them. If they are slightly more expensive, ask if they will negotiate a cheaper price for you. Above all, make sure you have a good rapport with your removal and storage company as you're trusting them with your worldly goods and a good relationship will make the transition as smooth and painless as possible.
