In the current climate, having a lot of family and friends helping you move isn’t possible. So, call in the professionals for a helping hand. They will be able to help with all the heavy lifting and transportation, leaving you to focus on the unpacking!

Label, Label, Label

Organising boxes for moving

However tempting it may be to throw things in and deal with it later, labelling your boxes will make your life so much easier in the long run. When it comes to unpacking, you can order your boxes into rooms for your new home, this way you can unpack systematically and get the job done quicker!

Measure Up

One of the most common issues during a house move, is that some items don’t fit into the new home. There’s nothing that will throw a spanner in the works quite like your favourite sofa not fitting in or your new shelves, so be sure to measure up before you move!

Keep Tools to Hand

Tools for DIY

Those spare, screws, nails and bolts that have been kicking round your house for years because you don’t dare through them away, now is your chance to put your cautious hoarding to good use! Spares of things like screws, nails, and light bulbs are likely to come in handy on moving day, so make sure they are within reaching distance.

Removal Costs

Doing calculations on a calculator

When looking for removals companies, we don’t recommend jumping at the first removal quote you’re given. Shop around, search for your best option. Once your packing is underway, you might find it’s only the larger items that you need help moving and could be done in half a day.
