Planning A House Move?

At Bedford Removals and Storage, we understand that moving home and storing your belongings can be a stressful and overwhelming experience. To ensure that your removal and storage process goes as smoothly as possible, we have compiled a list of helpful hints. These tips will help you stay organised, save time, and avoid common pitfalls. Let’s dive in!

Plan Ahead

Start planning your move well in advance to avoid any last-minute stress.
Create a detailed checklist to keep track of all the tasks that need to be completed.
Contact your removal and storage company early to secure your preferred dates.

Declutter and Donate

Before packing, go through your belongings and get rid of items you no longer need.
Consider donating usable items to local charities or organising a car boot sale to lighten your load.

Pack Smart

Use sturdy, labeled boxes to pack your belongings. Clearly mark fragile items.
Keep a separate “essentials” box with items you’ll need immediately upon arrival.
Disassemble large furniture and keep screws and bolts in labeled bags for easy reassembly.

Label Everything

Label each box with the contents and the room it belongs to. This will help during unpacking.
Use color-coded labels for different rooms to make it easier for the movers to know where to place boxes.

Notify Important Parties

Inform your utility providers, banks, insurance companies, and other relevant parties about your move.
Update your address with the Royal Mail to ensure your mail gets forwarded to your new location.

Take Care of Valuables

Keep important documents, jewellery, and valuable items with you during the move.
Consider purchasing appropriate insurance coverage to protect your valuable possessions.

Communicate with Your Movers

Maintain open communication with your removal company throughout the process.
Provide them with any special instructions or considerations for fragile or valuable items.

Arrange Parking

If parking is limited at your new residence, make arrangements with your removal company and local authorities for a parking permit or loading zone.

Utilise Storage Services

If you require temporary storage during your move, consider utilising our secure storage facilities.
Label and organise your items for storage to make retrieval easier when needed.

Stay Calm and Flexible

Moving can be unpredictable, so it’s important to remain flexible and adapt to unexpected situations.
Keep a positive mindset, and remember that the process will eventually come to an end.
