Moving Home Checklist
How do I prepare for moving home?
work out what you are moving:
create a list. Best for preparation. Considering what (if any) furnishings need to remain in it's current location, which ones will be moving and if items can be disposed of. Consider if furniture requires disassembly or assembly.
consider what you will be packing:
a full list can be tedious. Our recommendation to create a smaller list of groups i.e glassware, crockery, small ornaments, photos, larger furniture, clothes etc. Larger furniture items like sofa's etc wont be packed, just protected and our removals team can do this for you when loading.
consider how will it be best to pack:
now you have your group list you can decide what moving supplies and packing materials would be required for these groups. For example protective wrapping for glass / crockery, wardrobe boxes for clothing, box filler for small ornaments etc. You will also have a better idea how many boxes you will need and what size for moving your home.
decide if you or the removals team will pack:
you can pack for your home removal yourself or request for our expert packers to do so. If you chose too, please remember to pack in the correct order with appropriate protection ready to be moved and transported safely.
consider stairs / lift vs size and weight of furniture / items:
if you live in a flat you will need to think whether your larger furniture items can fit through your doorways and into the lift safely not exceeding any weight limits. If not furniture disassembly services will be required. Again the option to do this yourself or request for our home removals team to do this. For flat removals and house removals both will need to consider stairways/narrow hallways and if sizeable items will fit.
Consider if you need help or not:
Now you have a complied list of everything to be planned for when moving. You have the information needed to know whether you can do this yourself or book for a removals company. Remember heavier items will need 2 or more people to assist when carrying to ensure the safety of the person and items both. For most, there is simply too much to do when moving home and decide to leave it to the professionals. That's us! A majority of people choose home removal companies that include packing and moving, along with furniture disassembly services for ease and peace of mind - that's us again!
Suitable size van:
do you have a van big enough to fit your house removal or do you need more space?
Consider when you are moving:
the recommendation is to begin to plan a month before you move. Referring to the list above giving yourself time to plan, organise and schedule any removals services required. Removals companies recommend to book in advance to ensure you receive the date and time suitable for you. Brilliant Removals suggest 7 days, though we are able to accommodate all removals requests subject to availability.

You will now have all the information you need to get removals quotes and book the best removal company near you. Probably us again. With us the option is all yours, we can do some or we can do it all!
