Utilise this advice, implement these tips when undergoing your own move. Here are top 10 tips from the domestic removal pros.

  1. Book a removal company early. There’s nothing worse than leaving making that all important decision of hiring a moving company until the last minute. You need to allow yourself time to choose the right moving service for you. Bear in mind that the best home removals companies are often booked up for weeks and months. If you want to secure your slot, then you need to get in touch with them well in advance of your move. You don’t want to settle for a company you’re not entirely happy with because your preferred choice is booked up. Secure a company early on and it’ll be a load off your mind.


  1. Write your moving requirements on paper. Create a tick list and shortlist of companies. Then call them up and get quotes.


  1. Get your removals company to come around and view everything you’re taking themselves. Professional companies shouldn’t have a problem doing this. It will enable them to give you an accurate quote.


  1. Have a contingency plan in order. You may need to call up a backup company at the last minute if things go wrong.
  2. Ask the moving company about the possibility of penalty fees or if there’s anything you can do to keep the cost down.


  1. Don’t leave packing until the last minute. This will cause a rush, will result in you making mistakes, and will cause a lot of undue stress.


  1. Think about ease of access; is moving furniture out of your property, or into your new premises going to be a problem?


  1. Ensure the company has blankets, straps, all the necessary equipment to protect your items whilst in transit.


  1. Do a final sweep of the house to ensure you haven’t forgotten anything to pack.


If you don’t know where everything’s going to go in your new place, consider moving items into storage.
