Preparing your possessions for the big move

Once you’ve booked your dates and hired professional help, it’s time to take stock of all your worldly possessions – in preparation for moving the whole lot to your next destination. It’s at times like this when you finally realise just how much stuff you have hidden away at the back of cupboards, in overhead lockers and piled up in the attic. But don’t worry, an expert removal company will make light work of the whole process.

Start with an inventory
It’s not just when you move into your new home that you should complete an inventory. It’s worth doing one before you’ve even got your first box ready. Whilst everything is still untouched, walk through each room and compile an extensive list of what is in each one. You should be aiming to:

Get rid of the stuff you never use
Identify the fragile or delicate items
Identify hazardous or perishable goods
Large volume or heavy items

Whilst you’re busy, remember that there are two beings in particular that are unlikely to help you at this point:

Give yourself the chance to concentrate and declutter by packing off the little ones or the furry friends to another room or the garden, and let yourself focus on the task in hand.

Draw up your list, assign a category or code to each, and get ready for the next step. At this point, you can give us a call and let us know in more detail about the scale of your removals. Of course, if you don’t have time, we’re more than happy to take care of the whole process ourselves.
