Moving to a new home is an experience that is often full of excitement, nervousness, worry and delight, and probably many more emotions depending on the person concerned, but when it comes to moving with the help of a decent removals company then everything should go just fine.
When using a removals firm, it is important that you work together as a partnership, making sure that they have all of the information that they need to successfully move you and in return they will make sure that your move goes to plan, is a success and the only worry you need to have is what you will eat for tea on the move day as all of your plates will be packed away!
Here are some ways in which you can help to make sure that your chosen removals company can do their job effectively and make sure you are moved, on time, successfully without any hassle at all.
Book With Accuracy
When booking your house move, you need to try and make sure that you really are giving the right information to your chosen removal firm, to not only make sure you get an accurate quote, but to also make sure that they send enough vehicles or the right vehicle on the big day. Some of the bigger companies may send someone out to help you decide how much space you need, but this is not always common, so make sure you have a good idea about what is being moved and give them this information, so that on moving day you have enough room to move everything correctly.
Try to make sure that if you are boxing your possessions and you are packing everything up rather than the removals firm, you do it correctly and you take your time to protect everything correctly. All fragile items should be protected and clearly labelled, anything worth a lot of money should be similarity dealt with and try to group things together that are of a similar nature or are from the same room, which makes unpacking at the other end of the move easier, quicker and far more logical in terms getting settled in.
Following on from the above point, try to make sure that you box and package items from the same room, rather than mix everything up. There is no real reason from a removals success point of view, but to make your life easier when you have moved into your property this will make a massive difference, as you can put the boxes in the right room and unpack as and when you get a chance to.
Kids And Animals
Children and animals can often feel the stress of moving day just as much as adults do, if not more so, so it is vital that if you can arrange for them to be out of the property you can, as not only will it avoid a potentially stressful situation for them, but it will also help to make the move happen quicker. Kids and animals running around the house with boxes and furniture being moved is never a great idea, so try to, if possible, get them away from the property, even if it is just for a few hours.
If you have certain things that you need to be done in a certain way, always be upfront with the removals company and let them know prior to your move or on the day, as they can then make sure your wishes are adhered to. Everyone moves things in different ways, but there is no harm in having some input and letting the removals people know that some items need to be handled in a certain way or that you would like some items moved how you want them to be moved. Never be afraid to express your opinions, it is better to do this before the move than be angry after it if something has gone wrong.
Our final point is although it is always going to be a stressful day, try not to worry, as when you book a professional, recommended and reliable removals company, they have a wealth of experience and can handle everything, so try to take a step back and focus on your new life in your new property, as moving is stressful and worrying, but everything will be ok!
