Before Moving Anything In

Before moving any of your belongings into your new home, its important to make sure that everything is as it should be. You may have had a list of repairs you expected or this may be the first time you’ve seen the house empty. Take some time to go around with a notepad and check all of the sockets for obvious signs of wear and tear and look for damage that you might be otherwise liable for.

Ensure that any cupboards are empty, free of damp, mold or bad smells, and keep a close note of what where the electricity, water and gas stopcocks are. While doing this, you’ll also be getting a feel for where you can place any furniture, how to get it up any stairs or even just into the house. Note down any damage or concerns you have to be discussed with whomever you’re dealing with . It’s important to have these notes before moving anything in so that you can get the problems remedied as soon as possible.

If you’re renting, your landlord should also give you contact details, emergency repair numbers and any paperwork pertaining to these emergency repairs that you may need. You may also want to get bank details or arrange a good time to come and collect rent. Any final paperwork can be signed now, and then you can start making your new place your own.

You should also ensure that the central heating and boiler are working correctly and collect any manuals for these from the previous occupants.  These manuals will save you a lot of frustration in the long run.

House Movers

Moving the contents of your home can be a very stressful time, we want to make sure that you have a pleasant and stress free move. When moving an entire household, it is good to give as much details as possible when speaking to our move coordinators. Book well ahead of time so that you can rest easy that you have movers booked.

Our trucks all come stock with an ample supply of moving pads, a piano skid, 4 wheel dollies, and box carts to make sure your move goes efficiently.

Moving a full house of contents usually is good to do with a moving crew of 3 men.  This reduces the time it takes to move by more than 30% while the price is not 30% more.  This not only saves you the house moving customer money; it also makes moving safer especially with some of the larger more awkward pieces.  Our moving coordinators will best be able to determine the man power required to move your household.

Most commonly asked question – How much will my move cost? Answer: That is up to you!
