Consult Professional Movers before Making your Moving Checklist

Consult Professional Movers before Making your Moving Checklist

19 August 2014

When you are moving home it is essential that you do two things to make sure that your removals process is as easy and efficient as possible. For a start, you should make sure that you have a checklist for the move going forward, so that you are always aware of what has been done and as to what needs to be sorted still. One of the main things that should be on your checklist, and at the very beginning, is getting a removals company involved, as this will improve your move tenfold from the outset. One of the lesser considered beauties of the removal company is that they can give advice on your move which will give you a great deal of insight as to how to go about things in the best way. For instance, most of us will not know how best to pack a wardrobe; do you box it, or leave it unprotected? A removals company will be able to advise as to whether you should be using a full box, or just a little protection, or whether it will be fine on its own. With this in mind, you will be able to ask a load of questions about your checklist, to make sure that you do not miss anything out from the outset. Therefore, you have a conundrum, which came first the chicken or the egg? The list or the movers? In reality you should get together a starting list, so that you don’t forget to do things like call up the removals company, set a date for the move etc, and then once you have all of the foundations of your move in place, you can do a new, more specific list, which you can ask your removals company about, to ensure that you are not missing anything, and for advice on how to go about each separate task.

Once you have a decent list of everything that you need to do, and your movers have given you some great advice as to how you should be going about such things, you can start to look into the best order in which to do things. Ultimately, you should start planning a good month or so before the move, in order to give yourselves enough time to get everything sorted before the day, as well as to ensure that you get the best removals company on the best date for you. Booking early will also open you up to potential savings that some removals companies offer for advance bookings, so be sure to ask about such things when you are enquiring. The best planners should find that with the amount of time that they have given themselves in order to get everything done, they only have to do a small bit of work every day in order to get the job sorted. This means of course that you can spend more time on your family and social life, as well as being able to spend more time at work, which is obviously a blessing for those who are a bit worried about the amount of cash being pumped into their move!

Getting a professional moving company involved and planning well with a checklist is a recipe for success when it comes to a big move, so start early and get things sorted so you can relax a little!
