How to get ready for a big house move

The mortgage is arranged, and a completion date has been set. All that remains to do is move into the property and start making it your new home. However, if you are looking to move a large number of items, it’s a good idea to have a plan for where everything will go and how it will get to the new home. Here are a few pointers to get you started.

  1. Hire a removal firm to do it all. Indeed, it is one of the quickest options. You will need to have everything packed up and ready to go when they arrive. This means putting everything that is breakable into boxes. Oversized items, like a sofa, can be broken down, so there is more room in the Van. This will also make it easier for offloading when you get there.

  1. Organise everything. Before you even think about moving start to pack away as much as you can. Naturally, things like the kettle and Microwave will need to be the last things that get boxed up. Make sure everything is labelled with where it’s going to go. If the Kettle and the microwave was the last thing to be packed away, it needs to be the first thing you unpack at the new home (along with the tea, coffee and biscuits).
  2. If you don’t want to go to the expensive of a removal firm, why not invest in a trailer? If you already have one, make sure it’s up to date and ready to be used. Trailer Parts from autoandtrailer.com/shop/trailer-parts can really help if you find any areas that are broken or in need of repair before the big move.
