Points to consider when moving home.

When moving home, why not consider these important things to do before the big move:-

You really should initially find a good removals company by starting to look for recommendations or from seeking out best reviews etc. We have listed some handy links connecting to some further down this page.

Perhaps you don't want to make use of a removal company and instead just simply rent a hire-van. This saves a lot of money, but does have its downsides as you have to deal with the stress and time in moving your own contents. It's generally far easier delegating this to a removal firm or even a van and man operator. Using ones based locally are not as expensive as you might think!

You could create a list of items which would help your removals company provide a more accurate costing before they commit with a price.

Once you've organised the removals, it's also a good time to de clutter as you don't really want to be transporting items that won't fit or work in your new home.

You also need to arrange your home insurance cover for your new home as well as the telephone, broadband, sky tv, water rates, council tax, electric and gas and ideally contact them all in GOOD TIME.

An obvious but often overlooked point is to make sure you have enough packing boxes and tape to pack the smaller items into. These need to be well packed and protected. Bubble Wrap also comes in very handy.

Have you remembered to cancel magazine subscriptions and newspapers? What about the local window cleaner? All these things need doing!

Your address needs updating with bank, building society as well as credit card companies, driving licence, passport etc.

Some more obvious but often overlooked matters are - have you emptied the fridge and freezer prior to the big move!  They will need cleaned and defrosted.

Remember the all important meter readings for your electric and gas - make sure you inform the utility companies of these readings. These days its easy if you have this on your smart phone.

When packing, place your paperwork and private documents together - the amount of times we hear people struggling to locate things like this when they have been packed tightly together at the rear of the storage container!
