Get Ready for your LE2 Home Removal Well in Advance

19 August 2014

By planning ahead, you can often avoid many of the stressful situations that are associated with moving home, such as last minute packing. By starting a few months in advance, and following the guide below, you should be ready to go when moving day arrives and have most of the associated tasks out of the way.

Moving checklist

The first thing to do is to make yourself a moving checklist. You should also try and give yourself a schedule, and write the list in tandem with it. This will break down all the tasks you have to do into manageable pieces that can be completed a day at a time. For example, you might allocate yourself 2 days to find and research potential LE2 moving companies, add in a couple of hours of packing each day, and so on. It can also be useful to give yourself some breathing room by having a few spare days in case anything goes wrong or problems arise.

Organised packing

Working with your checklist, think about what items you can start packing well ahead of time. Normally, any valuable or rarely used items in day to day life are the best things to start with. You can begin packing these well ahead of moving day, and using your checklist slowly work your way towards having everything packed and ready except the day to day essentials when LE2 moving day arrives. Packing these can then be done before moving day, and you will have everything you need to have a quick drink and something to eat before you start unpacking in your new home.

Packing materials

These can also be picked up well in advance of your move. A cheap way of getting packing boxes is to check your local grocers in the LE2 area and see if they have any spare boxes. Generally, shops are happy to give you these free, and they are normally in fairly good condition as they will have just been delivered. Alternati9vely, you can check specialist stores in your area or online that provide durable packing boxes and containers. You should also be sure to pick up a good amount of heavy duty packing tape and a Stanley knife. Both of these items can be useful around the house for general tasks too, and are normally fairly cheap.

Choosing a removal company

Depending on the size and distance of your move, you might be better choosing a removal company over a man in van, but it can be useful to have a few numbers of man in van providers on hand for last minute changes of plan or emergencies, as they will normally accept jobs on the day, and offer rates charged by the hour – useful if you’re in a pinch. To find the best LE2 movers, try asking friends, colleagues or family that are local to the area, especially if they have moved home recently. Alternatively, the internet and LE2 telephone directory will offer a good selection of removal options. Once you have a handful of companies, call around and get some quotes, don’t just go with the first company you find as there may be better deals waiting elsewhere.

Essentials box

By following your packing plan, you should just be left with the basic day to day living items on moving day, such as a pot and pan, some cutlery, mugs, basic food, and so on. Having these handy and unpacking them first when you arrive at your new home will enable you to refresh yourself and take a breather before starting the unpacking. All that is left then is to enjoy your new home!
