Get a Move On

Hello! Welcome to my blog. My name is Danny and I am here to tell you to GET A MOVE ON. I'm not being rude. I am just trying to give you some great tips on how to move your stuff when you need to move house. I have moved house 8 times in the last 4 years, so when it comes to packing, moving and storing stuff, I know a thing or two. I was a complete novice when I started out but having hired some of the best moving and storage contractors in the country, I have learnt from the best. I hope you like my blog.

Three Essential Things to Do Before Moving

Hazel Bailey

Moving to a new home is equally exciting and stressful, but there are a few things you can do before moving day to make the process go more smoothly, from choosing the right house removal company to making a plan for the day.

Have a Huge Clear-Out

One of the great advantages of moving to a new home is the opportunity to take stock of your belongings and get rid of anything you don't want or need. Get rid of clothes you don't fit in, books and toys your children have grown out of, the furniture you want to replace and anything that isn't useful to you anymore. Work out what you can donate, what can be recycled and what you can throw away. This will also save you time and effort when moving as you'll have less stuff and won't waste time packing anything you don't really want. It also ensures that your new home stays as tidy and clutter-free as possible.

Book the Right Removal Company

There's sure to be a lot of removal companies working in your area, but it's important to choose the right one. Word of mouth, reading online reviews and researching websites will give you some initial ideas, but you should also make sure they provide the services you need. This will avoid awkwardness, stress or extra fees on moving day. For example, if you're moving across the country, ensure that this is something your movers can provide. If you need storage, packing materials or someone who can move a piano, you should communicate your needs clearly and make sure you're on the same page.

Make a Plan for Moving Day

No matter how prepared you are, moving day can get stressful. Take a weight off your shoulders and ensure your day goes smoothly with a solid plan. For example, what will you unpack first when you arrive? When will you make time to hand over the keys to your old home? What time are the movers arriving, and how long will they be staying? What will you eat when you get to your new home? Even a simple plan for the day, or the address of a supermarket to get food when you arrive, can help you feel less stressed out. You can also follow some other suggestions, including packing a first night bag for essentials and packing a clear tub of things you'll need right away.

By clearing out your old home in advance of your move, choosing the right movers and planning your day well, you can ensure that your moving day goes smoothly for both you and your movers. Contact a house removals service near you to learn more.
