Once your removals team is booked, you’ll need to come up with a plan of attack. Make sure you communicate your needs to the removal company, including timings for the day, any assistance you need with packing, and potential challenges such as tricky access and narrow doorways. Warn them well in advance if you have large, awkward items to move such as a piano or solid wood table, and be accurate about the amount of boxes you have so they bring enough staff and a large enough van.
It’s also important to consider if there are any parking restrictions at your current or new house, so that the removals company can park while packing or unpacking takes place. If you live on a busy street where lots of cars are parked, it’s worth speaking to neighbours to see if they can move their cars on the planned move dates. This will ensure there’s more space near your front door, minimising lifting distance for you and the removals team, and making the moving process much quicker.
