Create a checklist
Don’t wait until the last moment to start planning your move. Create a checklist right away. It should include a detailed timeline of all the necessary activities regarding your move. From sorting out your belongings to discarding unnecessary items, planning vehicle transportation, and cleaning the house, a clear list will ensure nothing is forgotten in the process.
Work with packing and removal experts
We know you can do it yourself, or at least most of it, but you also have other things to take care of. Plus, moving home is not just about packing your stuff in a suitcase and setting off to a new home. It includes some amount of heavy lifting and meticulous handling of delicate items as well as cleaning and transportation. This calls for professional assistance. Find a local, reliable, and experienced moving company that will make home removal stress-free for you in every sense of the word.

Declutter your home
Before experts can take over packing and clearance, you need to perform this essential activity yourself. Go through all your belongings and decide what you want to take along, what you can sell or donate, and what needs to be discarded. Label items accordingly.
Selling items can be easy with various online sites available for your use. You can host a garage sale as well to sell off unnecessary items or donate them to local shelters or charity shops. It can be heartwarming to serve the community before you move on to a new home.
Leave a clean house behind
When you’re moving out, it is important to leave behind a spick and span home for the new occupants of the house. With so much to handle already, you may not have the time for a deep cleaning. Moreover, you also need to ensure that you have cleared out broken furniture and cut vegetation from your garden. So much to do and so little time! Leave it to the experts.
Your removal company should be able to help. They should take away the items you want to discard as well as clean the house thoroughly. Make sure they discard your items responsibly with the local and environmental regulations in mind. This is an important step toward ensuring a responsible house move.
Insure your items before removal
You must check with your removal company whether they have an insurance policy in place. It is crucial that all your items, furniture pieces, and vehicles are rightly insured before they’re taken away. You must also carefully read through the insurance policy to understand what is covered and what isn’t. This creates transparency between you and the company and makes the process hassle-free.
Take extra precautions with your valuables
It is advisable not to hand over valuables like jewellery to your moving company. Most companies, including Mitchells, do not move them anyway. You should keep them with you during the house move for your own peace of mind. For other high-value items, you may require additional insurance. Discuss this with your removal experts during the consultation.
Take your heavy items and vehicles seriously
Heavy items, cars, and motorbikes are the trickiest when it comes to moving home. To ensure stress-free removal, seek professional help. Your removal company should be able to disassemble bulky furniture before removal. They will also ensure that the screws and other essential parts are in place during the move. It also takes away the stress of heavy lifting on your end.
Finally, when it comes to your cars or motorbikes, you should only trust a reliable and experienced company. They should be insured to transfer cars and must have vans that can handle heavy vehicles.
Pack an essentials box
The night before your move, pack an essentials box comprising toiletries, clothing, snacks, and other essential items that you will need at your new home. This is imperative in ensuring that you have a smooth home move.
Stay organised on the moving day
It is important to be on your property while your belongings are being removed. You should have your checklist handy to ensure everything is being taken care of. This will also be helpful for your removal experts. They may have questions regarding your items and removal instructions, which only you can answer. Make sure to hang around and oversee the process for a smoother removal.
Over to you
As you can see, home relocation can be quite simple. All it takes is planning, being attentive and careful about your stuff, and relying on experts for complex tasks. Remember to have a checklist at hand and tick items off your list as and when they are completed. That’s all.
