A FEW DAYS BEFORE YOU MOVE
Pack a small box/bag with essential toiletries, medications, important phone numbers and important documents you may need and keep this separate so it is not moved with your other goods.
TWO DAYS BEFORE YOU MOVE
Empty and defrost fridge/freezer unless advised not to do so. Ensure packets, bottles and jars are sealed to prevent leakage.
Resolve parking facilities outside both properties and lift access if necessary.
Settle the children and pets if they are staying with you during the move and maybe organise a room with toys/treats although your day will be less stressful if they are elsewhere while the move takes place.
Our team leader will introduce himself and his crew. Show him around the house pointing out what is going/staying and anything you require special attention of.
Once the vehicle is loaded check that all items to be moved are onboard.
At your new home everything is unloaded and placed in the appropriate rooms. Check everything is where you want it.
