Looking to move house?
Friday, 16 March 2012
Spring in the air – and it’s one of the most popular times to move home...
Here are some useful tips on moving house:
Use moving house as an opportunity to sort out your possessions.
Throw away your rubbish, and separate items that can be given to friends or charity shops.
Get boxes well in advance from local shops or supermarkets, and save newspapers for wrapping breakables.
Professional removal companies
Unless you have very few possessions, call in the professionals to help you move house.
It will relieve some of the stress of the big move. You can arrange for it all to be done for you, or you can do the packing yourself – but leave the heavy stuff to the experts.
• Hire a removal company at least two weeks before you move • Use a removal company that is a member of the British Association of Removers • Make a list of your possessions so you can check if you’ve left anything behind
It will help if you let the company know the following: • The amount of furniture you’re moving, so it can choose an adequately -sized truck and plan the number of journeys needed between your old and new home • A rough guess of how many boxes the company needs to pack, so it can estimate how long it will take • The exact time you want the team to arrive • Clear instructions and directions to your new property • Arrange a parking space for the removal van. • Always tell the removal firm well in advance of pieces of furniture which won’t go through the door • Make a plan of where the furniture needs to go in your new home
