When it comes to home removals London can be intimidating. Traffic is a nightmare, friends rarely want to help, neighbours complain about you tying up the lift and the front hall… it’s enough to make you throw your hands up in despair. A removals service can help alleviate a lot of that stress.
It’s up to you to decide how much of the burden you want a home removals London company to bear. They can do everything from packing all the way to set up in your new home, or just move the items you’ve packed yourself. These decisions are based on size of job, ease of job, and of course cost.
Working with the removals consultant can help you decide what fits the size of your move and your budget. Be sure to point out any valuable or antique pieces that may require special handling or even insurance if there is to be a long-distance covered or storage provided. Talk to them about the location you are moving to – are there stairs or a long hallway to contend with? Tricky doorways? Give them as much information as possible.
If you do your own packing before the move, make it easy on yourself by noting the room each box goes to at the destination. List a few of the items to give you an idea of what needs to be unpacked first. If you can, try to provide the removals company with a sketch of the floorplan you want for your new home. That way they’ll know where furniture should be set up.
Some of the areas a removal company can assist with are:
- Providing boxes and other packing materials
- Storage – long and short term
- Tear-down of furniture at starting point
- Setting furniture up at destination
Removals companies are bonded, insured, and many work seven days a week, to help your move go as smoothly as possible. All you need do is settle into your new home, and start making new memories.
