Preparing for Your Move

Now is the perfect time to declutter and decide what you truly need in your new home. Run down items in your food cupboards, fridge, and freezers to avoid waste. Our team can assist you with packing, and we even offer a comprehensive packing guide to help you get started. Don’t waste money and effort moving items you’ll eventually discard.

If you’re planning renovations or redecorations in your new home, consider our bespoke storage solutions. Store your belongings safely while you make your new house a home.

Notify Key Contacts

Remember to inform essential services and people about your move. Take meter readings for utilities companies and manage direct debits and standing orders with your bank. We can help you manage the logistics, from redirecting mail to coordinating with healthcare providers. Don’t forget to send out change of address or moving home cards to friends, family, and colleagues.

Final Preparations

Our team will handle the heavy lifting, but there are a few things you should prepare:

  • Defrost fridges and freezers.
    Secure trailing cables.
  • Ensure you have all essential documents handy.
  • Arrange for a professional cleaning service if needed.

On the Day Essentials

Keep a box of immediate necessities, including refreshments and essential items like chargers, a first aid kit, and toiletries. Protect your new flooring by laying down cardboard or tarpaulin, especially if it’s raining. Make sure you have light bulbs or ensure the power is on in your new home. Consider hiring a locksmith for added security.
