Book Your Removal Company Early
Book your moving company well in advance to make sure they’re available on the day of your move. Don’t leave it until the last minute or you may find everybody is fully booked.
Before The Removal Firm Arrives Have a Clear Out
Get rid of as much clutter as possible rather than taking it with you to your new home. If you’ve got stuff you don’t need sell it at car boots or in the local free ads or on line with sites such as eBay. Turn your clutter into cash rather than paying to move it.
Avoid Fridays and Bank Holidays
Try and organise your removal for mid-week when removal firms are quieter. Fridays are the busiest day of the week and if you avoid them you stand a better chance of booking your removal company of choice.
Pack Room By Room and Label Everything
When all those boxes are at your new house unpacking will be so much easier if you’ve labelled the boxes with the room they need to go into and the contents.
Take Care Of Your Utilities
Make sure you’ve informed the relevant utility companies about your move and take meter readings on the day of the move.
Keep Your Electricals Fully Charged
Try and keep chargers for phones, laptops ets to hand so you can keep your electricals fully charged, you might be using them more than usual on moving day.
Who Needs To Know You’re Moving?
Phone and internet companies, banks, building societies, employers, schools, credit card companies, DVLA etc. will all need your new address.
Get Someone To Look After The Children
If the children are at home on moving day try and get somebody to look after them, maybe you can get the grand parents or other family or friends to help out here.
Get Someone To Look After Pets
Moving day can be stressful for pets too, if you have somebody that will look after them for the day then do that.
Check Your Boiler and Central Heating
Consider having your new boiler serviced and consider taking out cover with a repair company such as British Gas to avoid any nasty surprises early on in your new home.
