Moving calls for adequate planning, which will help to make the move easy and less costly. Booking a Removal Company London or taking the DIY strategy are fantastic options. Regardless of what the case may be, people just need to know what they should do – have an organised plan that covers anything from the packing to unpacking. Here are a number of guidelines that could be useful for DIY house moving preparation.
o Budgeting and planning will help with finding out the costs related to the move. Part of the preparation will include having clear details of the new location, the distance to be covered and the nature of the location (if it has easy accessibility and parking for the vehicles when offloading).
o You could think about hiring some extra hands to assist with loading and offloading, which means overestimating your budget to cater for any issues. Also, it’s important for people to make allowances for possible delays.
o Booking a van for the move needs to be done a week before the moving day. Speak with the hire company and ask whether or not they offer self-drive vans or they provide vans plus drivers. Each option comes with benefits, but it is up to the customer and what they want.
o Organising things is important to ensure that nothing is misplaced, left behind, or broken during the move. It’s also wise to sort the fragile things apart from those that aren’t, as well as the light from the heavy stuff. The fragile things should be packed in clearly labelled independent boxes.
o The heavy things should be packed at the bottom of the boxed, and the light things added on top to fill up the remaining space. Colour coding and labelling will be a smart way of knowing which box contains what and will go into which room. It is very important to set aside at least two to three days to accomplish the packaging.
o On the D-day, the loading can be a huge challenge. It will require a bit of muscle especially if most of the things are heavy. The heaviest stuff need to be loaded first, and have to be at the furthest end of the van to leave enough space at the top for the light stuff. Things like old blankets, pillows, and sofa cushions may be used to cushion the furniture from damages. You must ensure that everything is tied up and firm to avoid any shaking while on the road.
o The drive must be slow and careful. Attention needs to be given to the valuable cargo. The van must do speeds of around 50mph – 60mph for single and dual carriageways respectively.
The above mentioned recommendations cover the various things involved when moving houses. Nevertheless, this job can be tricky for many people, particularly families with small kids. For these kinds of families, using an experienced Removal Company London is the most effective option. You can ring 020 3006 1739 and you’ll be able to get all the information.
