Q: I’m packing the boxes – what about the furniture, appliances and large pictures?
A: If you are doing your own packing you only need to concern yourself with the items which fit into boxes. Items such as books / DVDs are heavy so need to be packed in smaller boxes. You also may need to consider furniture which may need to be dismantled prior to your move. Anything else will be wrapped and protected by us during transit to ensure it arrives safely.
Tips for Packing
• Start packing early, it always take longer than anticipated and begin from the top of the house moving downwards.
• Valuables need careful wrapping which will take more time – make sure they are completely wrapped in packing paper or bubble wrap. Pillows and blankets are also excellent for use to protect such items.
• Always pack heavy items in small boxes to avoid back injuries.
• Pack one room at a time and clearly label each boxes with the contents of each room it belongs too.
• Clearly label boxes that contain breakables.
• Keep all boxes for each room together, this will save time unpacking.
• Please make sure you DO NOT pack important documents such as birth / marriage certificates / passports etc. Please keep this in a safe place with you along with any medications also required.
Q: What about Clothes?
A: Irrespective of whether you are packing or we are packing, for hanging clothes we bring wardrobe boxes on your removal days. Soft clothing such as jumpers and socks etc can usually be left inside chest of drawers. Please note under bed drawers must be emptied.
Q: What do I need to do in advance?
A: If we’re packing – very little, we’ll pack out of cupboards and off of shelves. If you’re packing, you need to have finished the packing before we arrive so you are ready to move. Our Surveyor will have issued a schedule of services to clarify what we are expected to do / not do on the day with regard to dismantling furniture and items which are not to be moved.
However the following rules do apply:
• Washing machines should be disconnected with drum fixing brackets in place, by you on or prior to the day.
• Lofts should be emptied unless we have specifically agreed to do this for you.
• Freezers should be emptied and dried. Otherwise they are heavy, will leak water in the vehicles and potentially your items and your food may defrost. When it is delivered it should be left to stand for a little while before being plugged back in.
• Washing machines & dishwashers should also be emptied and disconnected.
• Remove any wall fixings i.e. TV brackets and all curtains you are also taking.
• Unplug and label any wires relating to electrical equipment to prevent confusion at your new property.
• Parking – If parking is an issue, you must arrange for sufficient space outside your property for the parking of our vehicle. Please bear in mind that you should leave enough space for the parking of the equivalent of a double Decker bus (approx. 5 car lengths).
• Items not to go such as important paperwork and keys need to be placed out of the way. Our crew work very quickly and we do not want to load anything onto the van which you need to keep on you.
Looking after the environment!
Following your move, please keep all boxes and paper clean and dry until we are able to collect and recycle them.
Q: When do I pay?
A: We ask for a 25% deposit payment upon booking your removal date and receiving your acceptance form. We then require the remaining monies the previous working day before your move is due to start. We can accept debit / credit card payments over the phone or a Bank transfer. If you want to pay via cheque this must have cleared in our account before your move starts.
