You will want to make sure that everything on your big moving day goes as quickly and as easily as possible, which is why we have come up with this great list for you to look at. There are many ways of making the day go a lot quicker but it all comes down to good planning and good timing. Of course, hiring a professional removals service to help you is a great way of doing this too. By following our great selection of tips, you can be sure of making your home removals job go like a dream.

How to Make Life Easy on the Big Day

Organise a Parking Permit

If you want to make your life a lot easier on your moving day, it is important that you get the relevant parking permits organised. A parking permit for the day shouldn’t cost a lot and can be obtained from your local authority. By organising this, you can ensure that the removals van has access to your home and they won’t need to spend extra time carrying the boxes and furniture long distances. This will all make your move go as quickly as possible, so that you can be in your new dream home before you know it.

Prepare Your Furniture

To ensure that everything goes as quickly as possible, dismantle all of your furniture as soon as possible. You don’t want to be dismantling furniture on the morning that you are due to move as there will be so much more for you to be doing, so try to do this ahead of time. Move all of the large items of furniture into the closest room to the front door and make sure your mattresses are there too. Most removals companies move the mattresses first, so by having them all ready by the front door should save you a lot of time.

Prepare Your White Goods

It is important that you take the right steps when preparing your white goods too. You should have already defrosted your freezer by unplugging it and leaving the door open overnight so that all of the water can get out. Also remember to tape up all of the doors and drawers of your furniture so that they do not swing open when being carried into the removals van. This will certainly take a lot of stress out of the removals job.

Let the Experts Do Their Job

You may want to help out at every given opportunity when it comes to moving but sometimes this can be more of a hindrance than a help. If you have hired a professional removals company to do your home removals work; let them get on with their job! If you try to carry out too much of the work yourself, you could end up getting in their way and making the job a whole lot more difficult. They are paid professionals who know exactly what they are doing, so why not sit back and relax whilst they do all of the hard work?

Plan Ahead

The most important thing to remember when planning a house move is that good planning will always save you time in the long run. Make a checklist of things that you need to do and when they need to be done and follow it to the letter. Don’t stress out if a few things go wrong, just go with the flow and sort out problems when they arise. By having the majority of the removals work, such as packing, done ahead of time, you can ensure that the removals day itself need not be hard work.
