Moving house in London this summer? Call London Removals Specialists 02088883917
Our top tips for making your summer move in London as painless and economical as possible…
It’s not surprising that summer is the peak time of year for moving house in London. Fine weather, longer daylight hours, school holidays and office shut-downs all play a part in its popularity, as well as families relocating around the city to be closer to their children’s schools. Here at Safe Removals, to keep up with demand we’re currently running 10 trucks, seven days a week, operated by a 30-person crew. To add to the summer surge, demand for our services has grown even bigger due to referrals from estate agents and personal recommendations from our many happy clients.
So if you’re planning on moving house this summer, here are our top tips for making your move as painless and as stress-free as possible.
1. Ask for quotes from removal companies in London
Contact a number of London removal companies and ask for a quote as the earliest opportunity. At this stage you don’t need to know your moving date, but having this important step taken care of before you exchange contracts can save you vital time when you come to move.
2. Clear the clutter
Before asking for quotes from removal companies, have a thorough clear out and sort through the house. Some removal firms might give you a quote to help dispose of some items, however that might not be the most cost effective solution as there are specialists who do only clearance. (It’s amazing how much unnecessary and unwanted stuff we acquire over the years– often without even noticing it.) Keeping the amount of items that require moving to a minimum not only means that you will be quoted a lower price for the move, but it also makes packing and unpacking a whole lot quicker and easier.
3. Avoid weekends
If possible, avoid moving at the weekend (including Fridays). As you’d expect, this is by far the most popular time to move house in London throughout the summer months. But with a little forward planning it’s possible to schedule your move earlier in the week – which can also save you money, as london removal companies are more likely to offer you added value at this time. Bear in mind also that the weekend is an equally busy time for solicitors and estate agents, and financial transactions between banks can also take longer. If you must book your move at the weekend, to avoid disappointment, make sure you book your removal as early as possible.
4. Hire a reputable removal company like Safe Removals 🙂
Make sure the removal company you hire is accredited and works to an approved code of practice. Check they are fully insured and that terms and conditions cover pre-payment protection, in the event that you have to cancel or delay your move.
