7 Things to do before you plan your House Removals



Moving homes could be a stressful time, this is the reason why the best removals companies will help in making your move as easy and smooth as possible. If you are looking to move within the UK or abroad, it worth it to start planning ahead so that you have a considerable amount of time for every aspect of your move. Some tips to bear in mind when preparing for your house removals are outlined below:


Plan your house removal in advance


First things first , to make sure that your house removal is as stress-free and as easy as possible is to plan it in advance. The more time you allow yourself, the better prepared you will be when your moving day is finally here.


Planning ahead helps to save you time and money


When it comes to house removals, planning ahead helps save both time and money – two important factors to relocating your home or office. If you plan ahead, you won’t have any last-minute rush for booking needed services on a busy weekend or holiday where you may incur additional charges. You can also avoid making decisions based on emotions rather than facts; which in turn can save money since buying things like furniture off the rack or hiring contractors at a short notice usually leads to higher costs in the end.


Organise utility bills and your service providers


  • Find out what services will be affected during the move (for example, phone and internet connections), and make sure that these can be stopped or transferred at a time when it will cause the least inconvenience to you and your family.

  • Make sure you have the right contact details for your utility providers.

  • Check that any payment information is up to date, especially if you have changed banks or credit cards recently.

Tidy up your home before you move

  • Be sure to have a clear out as it’s always better to get rid of any old and unwanted items before moving. This will make the process much easier and quicker and also reduce the time taken to carry out your move as you will have less items to move.

  • Try to Organise your belongings. This way, you will know exactly what you need to pack and it will also be more manageable for your removal company when they come to move them.

  • Remove any furniture that is broken or no longer needed in the home. If possible, donate these items or put them aside and we can recycle them for you during or after your move.

  • Plan ahead for pets. There are a few considerations when transporting animals including their size, temperament and general well-being during transportation (and beyond). If you have more than one pet then it may be worth booking two vehicles rather than just one so that all animals remain together during transit . . .

  • Plan ahead for kitchen appliances (fridge/freezer) – You want to switch off your freezer ahead and clear out foods prior to transporting your freezer to avoid water leakage or water stains to other items during your move.


Try to keep your belongings safe from damage

  • Endeavour to keep your belongings safe from damage.

  • Use bubble wrap or foam packaging to protect your furniture from scratches and dents. This is especially important for items like glass or fragile vases or picture frames, as well as anything that has a high value (like an antique clock). It can also help prevent damage if the movers accidentally drop something on the floor during their work.

  • If you have valuable items that need to be kept in perfect condition, consider packing them yourself before they're picked up by the movers so they don't get damaged while being transported.

  • However if you want us to handle your packing and moving , this is what we do best at Joel Removals , we can take care of your wrapping and packing aspect a day before you move or on your moving day depending on how much time you have to vacate your current property.

Choose the right service provider for your removals


You might want to make sure that you choose a service provider that has a good reputation, is reliable and experienced, flexible and has a range of services.

The following are some of the essential factors when choosing the right removals company:

  • Customer service - customer satisfaction is very important for any business. If you have had any bad experiences with another removal company in the past, then it could be worth looking at reviews in order to choose a better service this time.

  • Price - prices vary from company to company so make sure you shop around for the best deal possible.

  • We at Joel Removals are reasonably priced to meet customers expectations. We have excellent customer service and our track record speaks for us .


Moving house can be hard work but preparing in advance can make it a lot less stressful.


Plan in advance

Planning ahead for your move can make you House Move less stressful. Prepare your home for moving day by making sure that everything is stored away, or labeled so you know where to put it back when you arrive at your new home.

Avoid problems and delays by booking an extra mover if there are large items such as beds or wardrobes which are too big to move yourself. Give a few days’ notice of your move so that the movers can plan their journey around other appointments (or avoid them) if necessary.
