There are many areas for consideration when planning your relocation and for your convenience; here is a roundup of our domestic removal tips.

Measure up and allot space

It may sound obvious but it is most important you measure up all of your large furniture and the rooms in your new home where they are to be located. Very often this area is missed from planning and large items don’t fit into the room or worse still, won’t fit into your new home. Taking a tape measure and having a good old-fashioned measure up, noting all of the key areas for your furniture will save time and potential heartbreak in the future.

Update and notify utilities

When moving house it helps to save downtime if you notify your utility companies such as gas, electric and broadband a good 2-3 weeks in advance of the move. This gives ample time for setup at the new property. Your new home may not have a broadband point set up and if this is the case, your provider may take a couple of weeks to activate a new connection. As a general rule, utilities such as water, gas and electric will be in place at your new home, ready for you to notify them of your new address.

Label everything

Every box should be clearly labeled with its contents and the room it belongs to. This makes it simple for removals to relocate quickly and efficiently on the day of the move. Ensure any delicate items are packaged well and labeled as such. Electrical items can be missed off but it’s essential to label these too.

Packaging supplies

You will need a range of different sized boxes and very often you will need more than you imagine. If you have measured up well enough, you can roughly estimate what sort of storage space you will need to comfortably house your possessions. You will additionally need bubble wrap for your ornaments and packing tape.

Leave the hard work to the experts

On the day of the house move, the professionals will be taking the strain, effectively removing and relocating your goods. They will do all the hard work, leaving you free to commence unpacking your all-important possessions in your new home.
