3 important things you can’t forget about before moving day

If you’re in the process of moving house, you’ll know just how stressful it is. In between tying up loose ends with the solicitor, packing your belongings and putting together a plan of action for moving day, you want to make sure everything runs as smoothly as possible. Yet amidst all the chaos, it’s easy to forget a few important things, like:

1. What you’re going to do with your rubbish

Until you start sorting through your wardrobes, your loft and the boxes under your bed, you won’t realise just how much rubbish you’ve collected over the years. From piles of old wage slips and bank statements to clothes you haven’t worn since 2007, you could soon find yourself with bags and bags of things you need to throw away. And what are you going to do with that old sofa now you’ve ordered a new one? Save yourself the hassle of hiring a skip or going to the tip by asking a man with a van to take it all away for you.

2. How you’re going to move awkward furniture

With so many large, heavy and bulky items of furniture including wardrobes and sofas, you might be wondering how you’re going to get them all out of your old home and into your new one without damaging anything. And if you’re moving into or out of a flat, lugging it all up and down several flights of stairs probably seems like an impossible task. Don’t try to do it all yourself – your man with a van would be happy to help.

3. How you’re going to reassemble your furniture

Some items, such as your bed, will need to be taken down before being loaded into the removals van. Unscrewing all the nuts and bolts and dismantling the frame may be quite easy, but have you thought about how long it will take to put it all back together again? Whether you’re not very handy or won’t feel like doing it at the end of a long and stressful day, ask your man with a van to reassemble your furniture for you.

Removal nightmares – what could possibly go wrong?
