Planning your new house move / movers guide

Planning your the big day is everything for movers so Removals Portsmouth has a few tips in the form of this following guide:

‘Of course you will tell friends and family when and where you are moving that’s if you want them to know!’
Have a checklist maybe pin it on the fridge and start using it a month in advance. This way you can keep track of details this, will then highlight details you probably would never have thought of when moving. Good examples would be the Gas and Electric companies the paper man. The bank accounts as well as your regular account the long term savings and pension accounts. What about department stores, catalogues and point saving schemes.

Make up your own list of things to do, I would recommend you use a piece of paper a lot bigger than you first think.
Tempting though it my be do not pack children or pets on the day to save them getting under your feet! Try if you can to leave them with friends and relatives this may cost you wine or chocolate in the short run but can be a worthy investment. Cats for example are extremely territorial and if you are not moving far can end up back with the new owners of the old house.

Parking. Portsmouth has a lot of houses and not much space to put a large van. typically one of our Luton vans take up around two car spaces. To help us and make things run more smoothly try and use your car, cones or bins to save the spot which leaves us as close to the front door as possible or maybe talk to neighbours to see if they are happy to move their car..

Better Service
  • Pack and label your items boxes per room: i.e: Box1: Lounge.
  • Put your unwanted items on the side, we can help you get rid of these ask for a clearance quote.
  • Boxes can be expensive rather than going to the high street it may be wise to look on the online auction sites, roughly £2 per box. A very cheap alternative are supermarket boxes, pop in and ask most shops are happy to help.
  • Be careful that they of a good quality and the right size, maybe buy a small selection well ahead of the move to see if they are of a suitable quality.
  • Do any of the larger items fit through the door, flatpack wardrobes beds etc.
  • Have you had any work done on the house maybe a new portch or smaller doorway.
  • Have you read your gas water and electric meters, you dont want find an energy supplier has estimated your reading and then bills you for your old home. The same would apply to your new home.

Will my Contents Insurance cover my move?

Removals Portsmouth advises you to check with your insurance provider. Some policies specifically exclude goods in transit from being insured, others offer it as an additional fee. Don’t assume that your goods are automatically covered.

If not, Removals Portsmouth provides a fully insured move that insures your Goods In Transit Insurance that will cover for any unexpected losses or breakages.

People move for different sorts of reasons. We found that a lot of people move within the Portsmouth area simply because it’s a nice place to be I think. We also found the local moves mean people moving up to larger houses from one move to the next, making more space for the next place.
