Top 10 Mistakes to Avoid When Moving House

Moving to your new home can be what you’ve thought and dreamed about for years. You may be moving to an avenue you’ve always wanted to live in, or perhaps a house with a garden big enough for your ambitions. It’s one of life’s special events.

Needless to say, however, moving house is one of the most stressful things you can do. If everything goes right, you’ll be exhausted but happy. If something goes wrong, on the other hand, it can get your adventure at the new house off to the wrong start. Our job is to make things perfect for you.

At Grants Removals we have many years of experience at making the process as painless and enjoyable as possible. Over time we’ve helped hundreds of families with their moves and noticed a lot of the mistakes they tend to make. We don’t want you to make the same mistakes, so here is the first of our ten very important pointers on what we hope you won’t be doing on the big day!

Mistake 5 – You Don’t Consider the Extras

At Grants Removals we’ve seen a lot over the years. We can do a lot for you too and here’s a short list of extra things you should consider:

  • If you have some large furniture that might not get through doorways, try to think about solutions.Our surveyor can help provide some options on the survey. If you have flat-pack furniture that you assembled in the house, this will require disassembling before trying to get it through doorways that are too small.
  • If you’re doing some of the packing yourself, don’t forget to label everything. A label on top of each box, plus on two sides, would be a big help for you after the move, when you’re beginning to unpack everything.
  • We need to be let in to your new house. It goes without saying, but please make sure there’ll be someone at the new property to let us in when we arrive. We all want everything to go as quickly and efficiently as possible, with no unnecessary delays.
  • Think about parking. If your old and/or new property has parking restrictions around it, you might need to contact your local council to get them suspended while we are working.
