Anyone who has moved home will tell you that it's one of the most stressful times in your life.
Dealing with estate agents, solicitors, surveyors, mortgage advisers, insurance brokers... the list goes on. And that's before you've started sorting the reems of paperwork that comes through the door on a daily basis, all of which needs to be filled out, copied and sent back, along with what seems to be your entire life history.
Once all of that is finally done and dusted, all you have to worry about is the packing – cupboards, wardrobes, cellars, attics, the garage, furniture, those long lost duvets and suitcases under the bed... you may think you have 30 boxes worth of belongings but in reality you'll probably realise you've got more than double.
If you are starting to panic about the packing, Billericay removals and storage specialist, Alan Stephenson from A J Stephenson is endorsed as an adviser to the National Guild of Removers and Storers and not only provides advice but writes regular articles. One in particular is The Top Ten Removal and Storage Disasters to Avoid!
This report covers all the main potential pitfalls and problems you may encounter when planning a move or transferring items into storage.
Within the article, Alan talks about the fact that many people automatically decide to try to do all the packing themselves, despite having used professionals to deal with every other aspect of their move.
Alan suggests using a reputable remover, who will provide you with a variety of options to suit different needs and budgets. Most will offer two types of packing – glass and china packing and full packing. Many also offer bespoke packing, such as kitchen items and precious, fragile belongings, including paintings and chandeliers.
They should be fully insured (so make sure you check before booking), leave plenty of time to pack your belongings and bring more than enough packing materials to ensure they are well protected during the move.
Some removers also offer cleaning services, dismantling and reassembling services, and specialist catalogued collection packing.
