A couple of tricks can make the transition to the new place simpler and less stressful. The most reputable London movers are here to help you execute the perfect spring move.

Before You Relocate to London

There are a couple of things you need to take care of before you finally relocate to your new London place. There are especially important if you are moving during the Spring season:

  • Roof check – this is the perfect time to inspect the roofing of your new place for hidden damages and leaks. Go and visit your future London home on a rainy day and make sure to inspect everything.
  • Doors and windows – speaking of inspection, see if all of your windows’ isolation is in good conditions and if all doors close properly. Everything needs to work properly and if there is something wrong you need to call a handyman a.s.a.p.
  • Spring cleaning – Your new home needs to be cleaned from top to bottom before you move in. So consider hiring a company to deal with all the scrubbing and washing.
  • Don’t forget to pay all utilities. You will need electricity and hot water.

House Moving on a Rainy Day

To be fair if you are planning to relocate to London in Spring, you need to be ready for the seasonal showers. After all the British capital is famous for its weather. This could actually pose a serious problem, so here are some expert suggestions:

  • Wrap your furniture in plastic sheets and secure the edges, so a water pocket can’t form. It is likely your movers will need to carry everything in the rain, make sure your belongings are properly protected.
  • Restrain yourself for using cardboard boxes. Most moving companies in London can offer you to rent reusable plastic containers. This option will assure your items are safe from the rain.
  • Place old bedsheets or towels on the floor of your new place, so it won’t get muddy and wet and most importantly slippery from the rainwater. Safety first.
  • Dress appropriately. Wear water-resistant shoes and jacket. Try to stay outdoors as less as possible.

What to Expect in London

Spring is a busy season at the old capital, so you need to plan your every move carefully. Here is what you need to keep in mind:

  • move to London in the SpringThere are a lot of festivals during this season and some streets may be closed. Check in advance your route and see if you can find an appropriate place to park and unload the moving truck.
  • The best time to relocate to London is during the Easter holidays. Most people are using these first free days to escape the rush of the big city, and the traffic in London becomes bearable. You may want to sacrifice your vacation and have a peaceful house removal.
  • Check the water forecast before you travel to London. Depending on it, you will know which rout across the city to pick. For example, if it’s a sunny weekend all streets leading to the major parks should be avoided.

Take Care of Yourself

Moving in Spring on a rainy day in a high humidity city increases the risks for yours and your family’s health. Some precautions must be taken:

  • Pack an extra pair of clothes and shoes in your handbags in case of emergency. You don’t want to stay with wet feet for the whole duration of the house move.
  • Consider taking some hot beverages with you like tea or coffee. It is easy to get a cold in such unpredictable weather.
  • Remember to take lots of tissues and medicines and put them in an easily accessible bag. Spring is the worst season for people with allergies, so make sure you are properly prepared.
