If you are moving a distance with children, transfer your child’s records to a new school and sort out their uniform.

1 Month Before Moving Day

1 Month before moving day can be a stressful period with tension running high making sure everything is fully completed. Speak to a solicitor and ensure there is a finalised day to move in, afterwards confirm a removal company ensuring they are fully quoted with what the day will entail. Organise to have your new house cleaned, between the old owners moving out and you moving in. Packing non-essential items is important, the more you can get done sooner the amount of work you have left to do will dramatically decrease.

1 Day before you Move

Packing an overnight bag if you are going a long distance- therefore packing towels, toothbrushes and pyjamas.

What to look for when choosing a removal company!

Moving to a new house can be a stressful time therefore it is important that you have the most trustworthy company helping you. It is crucial that you look out for a variety of things when deciding which removal company is best for your move, and situation. A lot of time and effort goes into choosing a removal company, so you want to find a company who will relieve some of the stress and exhaustion on the big day.

However, firstly you must ensure you plan well, with a removal company booked months ahead and all boxes and packed ready to go that day.

When choosing a removal company, you need to think of what equipment they can supply on the day. You’ll find that the size of the move matters a lot, and how many vans you need, however this would have to be discussed with a removal supplier before booking- to ensure they have enough equipment. If they provide a packing service, then you need to find out if they provide the boxes or not, which would help to contribute to your move.

A main thing to check when employing a removal company is are they insured or not? It is important to know that all your belongings are insured when moving from home to home, and it puts you at ease if there were to be a problem.

It is important to provide your removal company with as many details as possible, such as: where they will be able to park, if it’s a flat and how many stairs there are. This ensures that the removal company knows every detail about the move, meaning there won’t be any unnecessary complications on the day!

How To Ensure Moving Day Runs Smoothly

People dread moving day a ridiculous amount- thinking it’s going to be stressful and very tiring. Therefore, we are going to give you our top tips on how to move to a new house as smoothly as possible. Small details that you remember when moving to a new house will help you more than you realise and cause less stress throughout the day. Especially with children, moving to a new house can be a horrible task, but with these tips it will be so much easier for you.

  • When packing your boxes, make sure all the contents of the box are all from the same room, so you know the source of where the box has come from. If you label the box, with what room it’s from and what’s in it- you’ll know where you are up too, and it’s so much easier when you’re unpacking boxes.
  • When taking down certain pieces of furniture, there will be a lot of screws and bolts once you take it down. If you put the screws and bolts in a freezer bag and stick it to the certain furniture, it’s easier for you when putting the furniture back up again.
  • If you’ve already had flooring done in your new home, or don’t plan to change the floor, flatten boxes onto the floor to walk on to protect it.
  • Move all your furniture into the house first, so you can fit the boxes around the furniture. There is no point bringing in all the boxes and having to move them around to fit the furniture into your home.

IMPORTANT TIP: Ensure inside your new home you have lightbulbs in the fittings and that they all work. You don’t want to be having to be unpacking in the dark.
