Have you made plans on your removal day? Even if you’ve hired a removal company to look after your house move, it’s strongly advised to be around and available on the day to oversee the moving process. We’ll be moving your most valuable and treasured possessions and we want you to have a positive moving experience.
Here are our top tips on managing your home move:
Good communication between you and your moving company is key to a successful move. Your moving company will be ready to help you with guidance and advice right up to and during moving day itself. Your movers will be doing a lot of physical, heavy-lifting work on your behalf, so they will be grateful to have you on hand to answer their questions about what needs to be moved and where it should go when it gets to your new home.
Always make sure you book the time you need off of work. This may sound obvious but it’s amazing how many people think that they can carry on with their daily routine in the middle of a major home move.
If you have young children or pets, drop them off with grandparents, a family member or with friends for the day so you can focus on your move.
On the morning of the move, start by re-confirming the details and running through your old property and possessions to avoid any misunderstandings.
Keep personal possessions such as cash, watches, jewellery, and important documentation close by – along with any items you’ll need quick and easy access to such as a phone chargers and medication.
After you’re finished clearing out your old home, do one last check of every room with your movers to make sure no items have been left behind.
Make sure your movers have the specific directions to your new home and make sure you have each other’s mobile phone numbers on the day so if anyone gets lost or held up in traffic you are all easily contactable. Being readily available will guarantee your move will run smoothly.
