Here are a few handy tips for moving day

Once you’ve booked your home move, there are a few things you can do around the house to make packing and moving out go extra smoothly. Follow these tips to prepare your home for the big day:

1. Essential: Set aside items you will require throughout the moving process. For easy access and peace of mind, keep items you may need to one side, and inform the movers what to pack and what not to pack.

2. Disconnect, drain and dry all white goods. This will ensure ease of movement for your fridge, freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer and any hardwired electrics on the day.

3. Labelling boxes. If you are getting a removal company to do your packing they will usually write the contents of the boxes and where they have come from in your house. We would advise you doing the same when packing yourself, to eliminate any confusion.

 4. Take all items out of the loft. Taking the items out of the loft will give a good indication of what needs to be packed and also gives you the opportunity to dispose of any unwanted items.

5. Clear out your garage or shed. Clean and bundle together any tools for easy carrying.

6. Arrange for your pets to stay with a neighbour. This prevents them becoming unsettled on move day.

7. Dismantle any fitness equipment. Another great time saver.

8. Record your utilities. Make sure you record the water, electric and gas reading.

9. Parking. To ensure there is no problem with parking, inform your neighbours of when the removal company are arriving and reserve parking if necessary.

10. Set aside any items for storage. This ensures they can be easily identified by the removal team on the day.
