Advice on House and Office Relocation

Moving home or premises is one of the most stressful events many people experience. Successful planning is paramount to any relocation. Here are a few helpful tips to help plan your move.

Planning

100-calendarPlan your removal well in advance; leaving it until exchange of contracts could end up with no removals company being available at the time you need them. Involve removals companies when you have accepted an offer on your house.

Booking

100-timeBook your removal service as soon as possible, always confirm date & time.

Quotation

100-quoteGet your removals company to visit you before moving and get a written quote from them.

Don't forget the garden!

100-plant

Don’t forget to say about garden stuff, including plants, etc, as they cannot be stacked.

Honesty is the best policy

100-vanBe honest with the removals company. Do not expect them to deal with items that they could not see on their visit and that you did not tell them about. If you do not, the removals company might arrive with too few lorries.

Contacts

100-mobileEnsure that your removals company has your contact phone number and you theirs.

Make life easier for all

100-toolsFurniture such as system furniture may be better being dismantled before moving. This will help removal and save space helping to avoid several journeys.

Packaging

Packing BoxesBox as much as possible and ensure that all items are packed both securely and tightly. This allows faster loading and easier storage. Keep a detailed list of what is in each box so you can find items easier when unpacking.

Will it fit?

Don't forget your mail

Telecoms & Internet

100-telephoneRemember to move your phone number with you, or let people know your new number. Make sure you notify your internet service provider as to avoid loss of service.

Read the meter

100-gas-meterOn the day, remember to check your final meter readings (gas, electricity and water).

Read the small print

100-contractEnsure that all legalities – in particular the exchange of contracts – are OK and complete.
