MOVE & PACKING ADVICE

Do it right and enjoy your move!

 

MOVING

  • Prepare ahead, when moving home, you will have to organise many things ahead of time, make a list of things that you have to do, to ensure move day goes as smooth as possible!

  • As you are changing address you will have to notify banks, friends and relatives to send your mail to your new address.

  • It is handy if you draw a plan of your new property so movers know where you would like your boxes placed.

  • Ensure your property has been decluttered before the service commences.

  • Remove items from radiators or air drying hangers/washing lines, bins etc.

  • Clear your dishwasher and sink.

  • Arrange care for children.

  • Arrange care for pets.

  • WE DO NOT pack curtains or remove ITEMS FIXED TO THE WALL unless you request this service is added to your quote.

  • Unless you have requested a packing service, please ensure all items are packed prior to the movers arriving.

  • We will not accept responsibility for any broken items that were not packed safely (ie. breakable items packed in a bag).

  • Think about how the removal van can access your property, it is advised to inform your neighbours and block a space with bins or cones for the removal van at both properties from the night before.

  • Please provide necessary parking permits.

  • Check that you have not left any items behind, turn off gas, electricity and close all the windows.

  • When you arrive at your new property we advise you to unpack the kitchen equipment first. Once you’ve got a functioning kitchen you will start to feel more settled!

  • And lastly please remember to recycle your boxes, help us keep our planet green!
