Moving house can be a stressful and overwhelming experience. But, with careful planning and preparations, it doesn’t have to be. At Brian Dale & Daughter Removals, we understand that every house removal is unique. That’s why we offer a range of services tailored to meet the specific needs of our clients. In this step-by-step guide, we take you through the process of moving house, from the initial planning stage to finally unpacking in your new home.

What You'll Need For Your House Removal

  • Boxes – You’ll want plenty of them and they’ll need to be sturdy enough to handle heavy items and a long journey.
  • Duct Tape – The Swiss army knife of house removal. You’ll mostly be using it to seal up boxes, but you’ll probably end up using it for a variety of other tasks.
  • Bubble Wrap – For use in protecting and padding fragile objects while they are transported.
  • Labels And Permanent Markers – To Clearly label each box, its contents, and the room it should be taken to.
  • A Hand Trolley – To Move heavy boxes and furniture.

Step 1: Plan Ahead

The key to a successful house removal is to start planning as early as possible. Create a checklist of all of the tasks you need to complete before moving day. These should include notifying your utility companies, cancelling subscriptions, and redirecting your mail.

Redirecting your post should especially be adhered to when it comes to your bank. Stray letters with your financial information are one of the key manners in which identity fraud is committed.

Consider hiring a professional removal company to help you with packing, transportation, and unloading your things.

Step 2: Declutter

Moving house presents a unique opportunity to declutter and get rid of any items you no longer need or use. Sort through your belongings and put them into separate piles:

  • Keep
  • Sell
  • Donate
  • Bin

Decluttering makes your move more efficient, cost-effective, and helps you save space in your new home.

Step 3: Pack Carefully

Packing can be one of the most time-consuming and frustrating aspects of moving house. Make sure that you have plenty of packing materials, such as boxes, bubble wrap, and packing tape. Label each box with its contents and the room it belongs in. This will make the unpacking process much, much easier.

Step 4: Transportation

Transporting your belongings from your old home to your new one is going to either require a lot of trips or one big lorry.

We recommend the lorry.

Whether or not you hired a professional removal company to help with the other steps, this one is a must. A professional house removal company will have the necessary equipment to ensure that your belongings are transported safely, effectively, and in a timely manner.

Step 5: Unpack Strategically

When you arrive at your new home, it can be tempting to start unpacking everything at once. However, it’s important to unpack strategically to make the process more efficient. Start with the essentials, such as bedding and toiletries. Then, move on to other items. Make sure you have a clear idea of where each item will go before you start unpacking to avoid any confusion.
