It’s best to spend the entire day at your property with our moving team, if possible without pets and children. Things go much more smoothly when you are present. If possible, be on hand when our team arrive and throughout the packing and loading process. If you are unable be there, make sure you appoint someone who will be there to direct the movers. Please try not to leave until the movers have fully completed the packing and loading.
The team will issue an inventory of your belongings for moving to storage or for moves destined outside of the UK, this ensures your destination delivery crew are aware of all of your belongings and recording the condition of the goods at time of pack-up.
Any boxes you pack yourself must be left unsealed for us to check and add to the contents to the inventory lists.
Don’t’ forget to take meter readings from all your utilities (electricity, gas, water etc.).
Make a final thorough tour of your home. Make sure nothing has been overlooked and lock all windows and doors, and turn off all switches.
At your new residence, we will ensure everything is unloaded and placed in the correct rooms, as directed by you.
Remember to keep all your personal items, such as your purse/wallet, keys, medicines and mobile with you! Plenty of water is always a good idea to carry with you.
Also remember to keep the kettle, tea bags, coffee, milk, cups plates, serviettes, some ‘easy to handle food’ such as fruit, cheese and biscuits to hand. Don’t forget things such as; bathroom items, tissues and wipes etc.
