Planning is the key to any move so below we have made some suggestions to help you with the process.
At least 1 month in advance
Arrange your quotation visit and confirm dates with your chosen removal company (hopefully Ede Bros!).
At least 2 weeks before
Change of address – once dates are confirmed – you should let friends family and necessary service companies know of your new address. Here are some reminders of who to notify: Banks, building societies, credit card companies, insurance companies, service providers, doctors, dentist to name but a few.
Arrange to forward your post, if necessary.
Contact utility companies to arrange for disconnection.
Start to pack and maybe, sort/tidy as you go – Ede Bros are registered waste carriers so we can legally dispose of items if required. Contact us to discuss your requirements.
Start to run down the contents of your freezer.
If you are packing yourself, and you have exchanged contracts, arrange for Ede Bros to deliver your boxes to you.
The week before your move
Remove any fixtures and fittings you may wish to take with you.
If you have items coming in to store, identify what these are.
Keep all your important documents and valuables in a safe place, so you know exactly where they are if needed.
Leave labelled keys for your buyers.
Take any final meter readings for utility companies.
Leave out manuals/instruction booklets for the new owners.
Once the removal crew have loaded your belongings, have a check round to ensure nothing has been forgotten.
Arrive at your new property with your keys before the removal crew arrive.
Things to keep handy on removal day
Paperwork for your purchase/sale
Basic first aid kit
Kettle, mugs, tea, coffee and sugar – always handy to keep the crew happy!
Congratulations – after the many months of planning, you are in – time to relax after your stress free removal!
