Moving house can be stressful

houseremovalswestsussexMoving house can be stressful enough with having to pack your items in a safe and secure box, bubble wrap your breakables, and ensure you label each box with what it contains and the room that it is to be placed in. Many people, especially if you have a big house, or many items to move, can spend weeks if not months having to get things prepared before moving.

Once you decide on the date of your move it’s important to book the removals company as soon as possible. The best companies are usually booked on most days so you need to reserve a date early.  It is important to research the company you will choose to help you with your house removals. Using a comparison website like Home Removals West Sussex allows you to quickly obtain quotes from local removal companies. It’s the best way to get the best deals in the market.

There are quite a few things you can do to make your moving day even easier. They include;

1. A ruthless spring cleaning exercise before the move so that you can get rid of things that you don’t really need. If you have lived in the same house for a long time then chances are that you would have collected a lot of things that you’ll never use.

2. Ask for bubble wrap, packing paper and even cartons ahead of moving day. You can then pack away personal effects and extra fragile items in addition to costly things all on your own.

3. Get a pen and paper and make a list. Make a list of all the rooms of your new property, for example kitchen, bathroom, bedroom 1, bedroom 2. Then you can label every box that you pack as you go along with the room that it is to go in, and also write a number on the box, and also on your list, and what the box contains.

4. Keep aside things that you’ll need on moving day. This includes food and disposable plates and glasses, a change of clothes, some money, mobile phone chargers, toys, keys and even a first aid box just in case.
5. if you have pets, you might consider leaving them with the neighbours for a few days during the actual house removals. Pets stress just like humans do and they don’t understand it when they see their food and water dishes disappear.

Keep in mind that the success of your move depends on how good your professional house removals company is. Make sure that you have discussed all details in advance of the move and also have a contract in place.
