What you should do before you move:

  • Disconnect all appliances ready to be moved.
  • Freezers can be moved full, but manufacturers recommend they be emptied.
  • Loft items should be brought down to bedroom level in advance.
  • Garden swings, climbing frames and sheds should be dismantled in advance.
  • Label all cartons clearly to ensure correct positioning at your new home.
  • Ensure cartons are well taped and secure.
  • Hanging clothes will be transported in transit wardrobes on the day of the move. (no need to pack them in advance).
  • Foods cannot be taken into stores. Fridge and freezers need to be defrosted 48 hours prior to the move and its also advised to give them a good clean.
  • Flammables and paints cannot be moved on our vehicles, and cannot be taken into store. This is because any insurance you have arranged with us would instantly be void.
  • Save a space outside your home. Roughly 3 car lengths if possible, to ensure we can park the removal vehicle outside and have the best possible access to your home.
