The best tip we can give is to choose your removals company carefully (see video below).You'll be surprised how much time and effort moving can take. Even with our experts on hand, getting ready for your move will always take rather longer than you think. With this in mind, why don’t you check out our tips below and see the link on the left for tips on planning your move – if you follow our handy advice, we can assure you that the whole process will go more smoothly.
Preparation and planning are essential components of a successful, cost-effective move. Get your quote(s) and decide on your removals firm well ahead of when you will be setting a date for your move as you should involve them in the whole process of setting a date so you don't end up chosing a date they can't help you on. Far too many people don't do this!
The easiest way to save money is to do the packing yourself, but we are more than happy to do your packing for you. Call us for packing materials and friendly, professional advice. If you are packing things yourself though, pack the trickiest things first e.g. large vases and bowls and use e.g. towels/cushions/bedding to easily protect them in a box (before you pack the towels etc.)
Make sure you pack your belongings properly and label each box clearly (we like it if people write the room on the parcel tape on top of the box and also write "fragile" there if applicable. Pack your books and other heavy objects in small boxes so that they're easier to handle. Squat without bending over, and use your legs not your back to lift any heavy objects. Don't forget to dismantle any larger items of furniture so that they'll fit easily through doors, but we offer a dismantling service if you prefer.
These steps will reduce the time it takes our movers to load and unload your belongings, and they'll help you save money on your move.
