As a London Removals company we understand the amount of planning and effort that goes into a successful home move. At Simply Removals we always aim to make our customer’s home moving experience as stress-free and pleasant as possible. The BBC recently listed a few useful UK moving tips on their website. We thought it would be helpful to share these with our customers and prospective UK home movers.

The complete UK home moving checklist can be found on the BBC website’s property section. Here are a few essential tips mentioned in the list.

1. Confirm the date of your move: This important detail often slip home movers mind. Give yourself ample time and confirm your date well in advance. Notify all the necessary parties to avoid any confusion and unnecessary tension form landlords etc. Notify everyone who should know about the move and send out a note or email.

2. Check your insurance: Make sure you have cover from the day you move out to the day you move in to your new home. Read through the terms and conditions of your local UK removals company and verify the limit to their insurance.

3. De-clutter you space: Moving homes provide the ideal opportunity for getting rid of unwanted and unnecessary clutter. This will save you the time and additional cost of moving junk items – giving you that fresh start to your new home.

4. Over Book extra storage space if required. Often people underestimate the amount of items that they own.

5. Plan ahead for your arrival date: If you need new furniture or carpets - order them in advance and arrange delivery for when you move in.

6. Change your postal address: Visit the post office and arrange for your post to be forwarded (you will be charged a fee for this service).

7. Local services: Notify your milkman and newspaper shop that you'll be moving and give them a date you want the service to stop.

8. UK Removals company arrangements: Remember to finalise the arrangements with your UK removal company. Confirm your departure and arrival times and make sure your removers have the exact directions to your new address. Also remember to collect the keys for your new home from the estate agent.
