Moving house comes with a lot of aspects that need to be organised ahead of time. It can be overwhelming, however, there are several mistakes that can be very detrimental to your household removals process. We’ve compiled a list of the most common ones so you can avoid them;
Hiring A Man With A Van
This sounds like a cliche, but what we really mean is hiring the services of a man (or woman) who is not insured, not accredited, and not an expert. Some people regard household removals as simple and easy, but in reality, you will require the expertise of a professional team. Hiring a company that does not have experience or accreditation is an easy way to make the process much more tiresome than it needs to be. We know we’re biased but the service we provide here at Edwards Removals is second to none and we ensure everything is taken care of.
Not Paying Special Attention To Your Valuables
This next removal mistake follows on from our previous one. Not using a credible team to help you with your removal process can lead to your belongings getting damaged or broken. At Edwards Removals, our team looks after your precious items, such as pianos, mirrors, family heirlooms and everything in between, which takes one more stressor off of your list of things to worry about. If you decide to move your belongings yourself, you may become overwhelmed with all the aspects of the move and end up breaking something yourself.
Getting Stuck By London Restrictions
Of all the cities in the UK, London is particularly difficult to move houses in. There can be lots of restrictions on parking and driving. These can be confusing and contradict other locations restrictions, and if you don’t know the area you’re moving to very well, you may find yourself getting a parking fine. Employing a knowledgeable London based household removals firm means you’re not only getting your belongings packed, unpacked, and removed professionally, but you’re also mitigating the risk of losing any money.
Not Accounting For Property Access Issues
Similar to parking and driving restrictions, there are also property access issues to contend with! In London, properties can be old and have small entryways and tight stairways. If you don’t allow for these, then you can expect to spend a fair amount of time figuring out ways to get your big pieces of furniture, such as beds and sofas in and out of your property.
Using Poor Packaging
Packaging is essential to your moving process. It’s important that you use the right packaging for your belongings; otherwise, they could get damaged or broken in your move. This means ensuring you have the right size boxes and the right amount of protective covering. In addition to this, there are specific ways that specific items should be packed. Our packing advisors are on hand to make sure that you are moving in a safe and correct manner.
As you can tell, there are many mistakes that are commonly made during the moving house process. In order to avoid these, we’d recommend using a specialist company like ourselves who do this day in, day out.
