MOVING HOUSE - Expert Tips from Warwickshire's Removal Experts - Oldhams Removals

Moving house can be a very stressful experience, but it doesn't have to be! One of Warwickshire's most experienced house removal firms Oldhams Removals Ltd give us the benefit of their experience with some tips of what to be aware of when moving house:

Choosing the Right Removal Firm For Your Move

Choosing the right removal company is extremely important to ensure your move goes without a hitch. Oldhams Removals of Warwickshire strongly recommend that the removal company you use is a registered BAR member ( British Association of Removers ). BAR removals companies have to meet strict performance standards including holding full insurance cover. You should also aim to find a well established, experienced removals company with lots of experience. For example, Oldhams Removals of Warwickshire have been established for over 90 years, full insured and long time BAR members. A good removal company should be able to stay in touch with you from every part of your move. For example, Oldhams Removals of Warwickshire appoint customers with a designated contact that will stay in touch with you through every step of your move.

Packing For your House Move

Most good removal companies will be able to provide you with boxes to pack for your move & give you any advice on packing fragile or valuable items you may be worried about. If the idea of packing up your entire house contents is too daunting why not let the professionals do the packing for you! Most good removals companies, including Oldhams Removals of Warwickshire offer a packing service.

Save Money on Home Removal Costs

If possible move in the middle of the week when you can get a discount with removal firms. Avoid Friday if possible as this is one of the peak times for moving house.

Plan Ahead With Your Move

Making preparations in advance will make things much more likely to go without problems & will make things less stressful too! Give your removal company as much information as possible about what you will need moving. They will also need information about your new property such as where specific items will be going. And don't forget to give them a spare key in case they arrive before you!

People to notify when moving house

Doctors, vets, dentists, opticians, banks, building societies, TV licensing, passport registration offices & DVLA. Internet service provider (ISP), telephone provider, insurance companies.
