Helpful tips on DIY removals from a specialist Removal Company London

Moving requires adequate planning, which helps to make the move simple and less expensive. Hiring a Removal Company London or taking the DIY approach are both fantastic options. Regardless of what the case may be, people need to understand what they need to do - have an organised plan that covers anything from the packing to unpacking. Here are a few guidelines that could be useful for DIY house moving preparation.


o Budgeting and planning can help with working out the costs associated with the move. Part of the preparation will include having clear details of the new location, the distance to be covered as well as the nature of the location (if it has easy accessibility and parking for the vehicles when offloading).


o It is important to think about booking some additional hands to help with loading and offloading, which means overestimating the budget to accommodate any issues. Additionally it's important for people to make allowances for probable delays.


o Booking a van for the move must be done a week before the moving day. Talk with the hire firm and ask if they offer self-drive vans or they provide vans plus drivers. Each option comes with benefits, but it's up to the client and what they want.


o Organising things is essential to make sure that nothing is misplaced, left behind, or broken during the move. You should also sort the fragile things apart from those that are not, as well as the light from the heavy stuff. The delicate things need to be packed in clearly labelled independent boxes.


o The heavy things need to be packed at the bottom of the boxed, and the light things added on top to fill the other space. Colour coding and labelling will be a great way of knowing which box contains what and will go into which room. You should set aside at least two or three days to do the packing.


o On the D-day, the loading could be a great challenge. It will require a bit of muscle especially if the majority of the things are heavy. The heaviest stuff need to be loaded first, and need to be at the furthest end of the van to leave enough space at the top for the light things. Things such as old blankets, pillows, and sofa cushions can be used to cushion the furniture from damages. You must ensure that everything is tied up and firm to avoid any shaking while on the road.


o The drive should be slow and cautious. Attention should be given to the precious cargo. The van must do speeds of around 50mph - 60mph for single and dual carriageways respectively.


The above mentioned tips cover the various things involved when moving homes. But, this task can be very challenging for some people, particularly families with small kids. For these kinds of families, employing a professional Removal Company London is the ideal choice. You can ring 020 3006 1739 and you will be able to get all the information.
