Before Moving Home

1.    De junk the home

 De junk simply means to clear clutter which is not useful in homes. According to a survey in UK homes mostly contains unnecessary materials are toys, broken furniture, cooking utensils, used stationery, magazines, out of order machinery, random containers, dirty clothes, old carpets and chairs, bags, coats, hats, sports material and so many. But when you are moving you have to compare the cost of moving these items and the actual price of these now. Sometimes you try to move the whole of your luggage and don’t care about the price which you expend for moving? This is just a waste of money for nothing. So, first of all, we have to clear all our wastes and only select the necessary things which you have to carry with you.

2.    Packing Gently

After the de junk and selecting of necessary items you pack them for easy carriage. But in haste, you also break some items during packing. First of all, you pack your precious things such as jewelry and important documents. Never ask any company to help in packing if they offering packing services, you ask your friends and colleagues for a favor. During packing one important thing you have to keep in mind you make a low number of boxes by your adjustment of items in a proper way. If you have a large number of boxes its fare will also be costly but you save money by keeping this in mind. And also avoid using special types of boxes and wrapping material which you have to buy. You try to get free packing material. Why you expending on packing even after reaching a new home you will try to get rid of these packing boxes and wrappers?

3.    A tag on the Boxes

During packing of boxes you just randomly put the items in the box and close them without knowing, what are you putting in the box? But when you reach your new home and get confused and start to miss some items which are actually packed in the boxes. Because you don’t know which box contains these missing items? So you go to the market and buy a new one which adds to your home moving cost. The best solution for this is to tag on every box about the items it owns.

4.    Safety of Precious things

One thing that is most important in-home moving is the safety of property which is precious like gold, diamond, and wristwatches about which you don’t concern more. In the end, you missing them due to your carelessness because you pack them with other local items. You make another mistake to trust the removals staff, all the members of the team are not honest always, so you have to take care of your precious items personally and make a journey with the picker vehicle to take care of the property.

5.    Compare the Cost of Home moving firms

You are not just going to the market or visit any online website and hire a home moving firm (company). You visit more than four or five firms physically or online and then compare their prices for home moving. After this, you decide which firm is offering the best price. And you select this firm services for you.

6.    Check Eligibility for Discounts

 Some companies offer discounts for special peoples like students, teachers, key workers, health workers, or armed forces. So that you, first of all, check them which company offering you discounts. Sometimes when there are low traffic clients than companies also offer discounts on their services.

7.    Selection of Moving Season

According to a survey July is the most popular month for moving homes in the UK. But you have to move when the traffic of moving decreases reason for that you find the best services by removals companies in low price due to off-peak season. So you hire the removals company at the cheapest time when the peoples are not hiring them in plenty we say it an off-peak season and this is the time.

8.    Get Overview of the Removals team

Your main purpose of getting a survey of the removals team is to save cost. Because sometimes you underestimate the boxes and the other luggage and you can’t decide the right-sized vehicle and the staff for moving home. So that you again go to hire another vehicle and more staff for removals, as a result, your expenditure increased. Sometimes you have to make more journeys back and forth for moving whole stuff by hiring any other company to add more costs to your budget.

9.    Save food

 In the haste of moving, you don’t concern about the food. How much your food and drinks in the freezer, behind the cupboard, and store in our kitchen which you can’t use? All of this food goes to the dustbin. Because it is not easy for you to pack food properly and take it to the new home so you prefer to throw out this. Before leaving make a proper plan and also try to eat up stored food and not buy more. Necessary food items should also be taken with other luggage by a proper sterilized packing.

10.  Contact Utility bills providers of your new and old home

Before moving to the new house you have to contact the utility bills providers like electricity, telephone and water bills to confirm this there is no previous credit remaining which you have to pay after shifting. And you also inform your utility bills provider and make sure your nothing dues are remaining and now you leaving so stop your new bills. Because after leaving home your bills proceeds regularly they don’t know you have left the home. As a result after some time, when your bills exceed the limit these companies contact you and demand to pay the remaining dues. You shocked what is this? So this is a very important thing before leaving the old home and adopting a new one to contact the bills providers.

11.  Reclassified Email
