Top Tips For A Successful House Move

A successful house move is all about being as organised as possible and finding the right removals company who will offer help and advice. Birmingham Removals Companies are easy enough to find, but the right company to suit your family and budget may be slightly harder to identify. Small Movers is a professional and friendly business that specialises in moving families both large and small. We can help with all aspects of your move from helping you pack to giving you advice on where to find the best removal boxes. We are also able to help with tips and tricks to ensure that your move is as stress free as possible.

The first and most important thing to do when planning any home removals is to make an inventory of everything you need to move. You’re unlikely to mislay a wardrobe or a bed, but smaller items can easily be overlooked or lost during a house move, and if something is lost in transit an inventory is invaluable proof for the insurance company. Valuable jewellery and important documents can be placed in a safety deposit box for the duration of the move to ensure that neither is thrown away inadvertently.

Estimate how much packaging you will need and order early. Small Movers can recommend packaging suppliers who can deliver nationwide. Remember that normal cardboard boxes are single thickness and not very strong. For proper protection and boxes that won’t collapse when full we recommend double thickness packing boxes. Bubble wrap is perfect for protecting fragile object, but newspaper can be just as effective and is much cheaper. As soon as your packaging arrives start packing up non-essentials. Many of these such as deckchairs, winter coats and wellies, will depend on the season. Others, such as ornaments and books, can be packed immediately whatever the weather.

As soon as you have packed a box label it! A list of the contents, a number that can be cross referenced with a spread sheet of items or the name of the room that the items came from or are destined for can all help you to identify that box with the absolute essentials needed once you cross the threshold into your new home – namely tea, coffee and biscuits. Also make sure that the box is clearly marked if the contents are fragile. Movers are generally careful with boxes but a box marked ‘fragile’ will be placed at the top of the stack and handled with more care. If you are using linen and bedding to wrap delicate items make sure that the box is clearly marked so that the unpacker is aware that there are breakables in amongst the sheets and pillows.

If furniture or other items need to be dismantled before moving, make sure that all of the parts are packed together and that any screws or small (and essential) parts are put in a bag that is securely attached to the rest of the item. Cover the surfaces of any furniture to prevent scratches, antique wooden furniture in particular can sustain damage if not wrapped properly. Moving house plants can be a particular headache, but careful wrapping in bubble wrap or gardeners fleece should ensure that there is little or no damage. House plants are best left until the last minute before being moved, and benefit from being unwrapped and placed in their new location as soon as possible.
