There’s plenty of things that you must remember to take care of in order to have a successful move into your new house in Shoreditch. It’s not just as simple as booking the removal services of a removal company and letting them do all the work. Yes, they will take care of most aspects of your move on moving day, but in the meantime, there’s plenty of things that you must address in order to minimise the likelihood of any potential problems occurring during this busy period in your life.

1.    Find the right moving company.
Most of the highly rated companies out there in Shoreditch, EC1 are booked up for weeks and even months in advance. So if you want a top quality removal service, it’s best that you begin to do your research, calling up companies, and start getting a number of quotes well before your actual moving date.

2.    Keep in touch with your company.
Once you’ve made a decision and booked with a company, don’t think that’s it and let all communication dry up until moving day. It’s very important that you keep in touch with your company and notify them of any changes in your removal task, as and when they happen. It’s best that you don’t change the date of your moving day, because this may mess up any prior arrangements you’ve made with your company. However, sometimes things happen and changes are inevitable, so don’t be a stranger and communicate regularly so that alternative arrangements can be made if need be.

3.    Don’t leave packing until the last minute.
You want to be sure that your items will be safe and secure whilst being transported to your new house, and the only way to do this is to ensure that you have packaged up your possessions and taken the appropriate measures to give them the best possible protection. Do this by purchasing plenty of packing materials; foam, bubble wrap, tissue protection will all do the trick, after which it’s just a case of wrapping your items up and placing them in plastic boxes, ready for the move. When packing and moving furniture in the EC2 region, remember to take accessibility into your new place into account; you may have to flat pack furniture and take some apart in order to get them into your new house. Again, take care of your packing well in advance of moving day, because you certainly don’t want your house movers standing around waiting for you to finish any last minute packing, as this will be costing them time and costing you money if you’re paying for their services by the hour.  

4.    Get the company you’ve booked with to come and check out what they’ll be moving before moving day.
Getting some representatives from your chosen company in Shoreditch to come for a viewing prior to moving day is a great way of ensuring that they are completely aware of what they’ll be moving. It will reduce the time of any unnecessary lingering around on moving day. Make sure you tell them exactly what they’ll be moving and ask them what they’ll be loading into the van first, so that you can then pack and move things around accordingly.

5.    Make sure you know exactly what you’re paying for.
Ensure that there are no hidden costs involved with the services that you’re booking. Also, remember to find out whether you’re going to be charged based on the size of your job, or if you’re paying for services by the hour, in which case, keep any lingering around to a minimum and get straight to it on moving day.
