General Tips about Moving Home or Office
If you have young children it would be advisable to look for baby sitters while the move is taking place. You will be stressed enough without trying to look after the kids.
If you have pets you should consider what is to happen to them on the day of removal. It is generally better that they are removed from the premises before the move takes place
Fridge and Freezer
Remember to defrost your fridge and freezer no later than the day before your move. Ideally you should run the contents of these down over the last couple of weeks before you go.
Kitchen appliances such as fridges, freezers or washing machines that contain water should be drained and allowed to dry before removal.
Tools and Equipment
Ensure that any petrol driven equipment is cleaned and drained of fuel well before the move.
You should make arrangements for your evening meal in advance of your move. You don’t want to be trying to cook whilst the place is in turmoil. However people can get short tempered when hungry so arrange a take away if necessary.
Painting and Carpet Fitting
It goes without saying that it is far easier if you can get your decorating and carpet fitting done in advance where possible.
Remove all lamp shades before the move.
Most beds require to be dismantled before they can be moved. Consider this and plan accordingly
Elevator and Parking
If you need to use an elevator or if parking spaces are a problem ensure that you get these organised beforehand.
Flat Pack (Self assembly) Furniture
Self assembly furniture does not always move well. It is better if you can make arrangements to have this dismantled before your move. You should also arrange for someone to reassemble it at your new home.
If you have plants you may want to consider leaving these with a friend or neighbour. Some plants are delicate and may be affected by dust and paint fumes. It is better to leave these until you are settled in.
Telephone, Gas and Electric
You should ensure that you have read your utility meters before leaving. You should also have made the appropriate arrangements with the utility and telephone companies for transfer of your services.
Keep all your essential items together in a suitable box for the day of the move. These will include things like your credit cards, keys, wallets, mobile phones and jewellery these MUST REMAIN in your possession as they are your responsibility.
If anyone in the household requires regular medication or items such as asthma inhalers ensure that these are kept safely aside. Remember that you may be working in dusty conditions.
