You’ve sold your home and it’s time to make the big move. The final step is getting everything from your current home and moved into your new one. It’s incredibly exciting but it’s also an incredibly strenuous process that may need some professional assistance. Your removal company Chester will be very experienced in moving all of your worldly possessions safely, but there are few things you can do at home to prepare and make moving all your items run as smooth as possible.
Parking – Appropriate access to the building is one of the most important but often one of the most forgotten about moving priorities. Having to park the moving van away from the home can in some cases, double your moving time and require extra effort to move everything. The night before moving day leave some cones outside your home (you can even add a note) to prevent unauthorised parking on the day.
Don’t underestimate the amount of things you have – Some companies won’t always visit your home to carry out a survey of what you need, particularly if it’s a last minute move. But it’s very important that you don’t underestimate the amount of items you need to bring with you for the simple reason that you won’t hired a van big enough to carry them all. Some might think that saying you have less items will save you money, but in fact it might put you in a bit of pickle!
Book in advance – The weekend is the most popular time to move, so don’t be surprised if your removal company is all booked up at short notice. If you really want to do it over a weekend, book as soon as you have a removal date in mind to make sure you get the right company for you. If you delay you might have to consider companies that are based further afield which naturally, will be more expensive to hire. Doing it all in a weekend can leave you feeling very busy! Starting on a Friday will give you that extra day to get everything unpacked.
Let the professionals help – You might be tempted to move everything in your own way but experienced professionals will be in the best position to advise you. If you have a set plan in mind – discuss your this with your ‘removal guy’ who can help you move in the way that’s best for you, whether it’s room by room or box manageability.
