Moving day coming up? Here’s how you can avoid delays on the big day

Moving day can be stressful enough as it is, one is worried about whether all has been packed and if one’s valuable dinnerware is going to break. The last thing on your mind during this rather stressful period is about being late and delays on moving day.

There are however, a few simple things to bear in mind that can help you avoid unnecessary and upsetting delays on moving day.

Whether or not to use a removal company:

Removal companies can be a costly additional expense when moving and it may be tempting to cut costs and conduct the removal yourself. If you are only moving a short distance away this can be successfully accomplished but you need to be much organised and plan appropriately ahead of time.

Measure the size of all of your furniture and appliances to establish the size of removal van needed to save time. Contact us for more advice.
