Removal Tips

One of the most stressful and daunting prospects is moving a home especially if this is the first time you have moved for a long time. Removal requires planning and organizing so it can be a stress free process.

An important aspect in removal is to plan way ahead in order for you to have plenty of time to deal with unexpected problems and complications. Some of us choose to pack our things by ourselves, if so, we need to do it as soon as possible. It’s probably most stressful if you do removals the day before you move. All that cramming will get you nowhere and you might get frustrated when doing your removals.

You should also find and compare removal companies which have a cheap price that fits your budget yet with quality service. You can find such companies by browsing in the internet and check the companies that are near your location.

As we said, if you are going to self pack, you need to do it as soon as possible to avoid problems and at the same time, inform the company quoting for your removal three to four weeks before your plan of removal. It is also important to understand the terms and conditions of the company contract which should include transit insurance and check that the limit for the insurance is sufficient to cover your goods.

After you have choose a company that would quote your removal, you need to confirm the date of your removal. This should be done two to three weeks prior. There should also be a tentative completion date that should be agreed by all the parties concerning the removal.

Now how about your gas, or electrical, or phone companies? Of course they should also be informed of your removal day for at least one week prior so they could send their meter readers to do meter readings on your removal day.
