The Challenges Of House Removals Streatham

06 August 2014

Moving house is always going to be a challenging task. Though modern technology and an ever expanding service industry surrounding Streatham home moves can help ease the burden, you have to be ready to take advantage of everything around you to make a move less stressful. This can be achieved, but only with a lot of forward planning and awareness of some of the challenges that will present themselves. Below are a number of things you must remember when looking at home removals, which will ideally make sure your Streatham home removal goes as smoothly as possible.

Firstly, it cannot be stressed enough how much help a Streatham removal company or man and van service can provide when trying to take on a removal. Each of the two have their own benefits and drawbacks. A man and van SW16 service is perhaps more convenient, offering a simple per hour rate and an availability that is unmatched by removal companies. Removal companies on the other hand provide a more formal service combined with extra space that a man and van service can’t provide. Regardless of which service you look at choosing, you cannot be without one of the two. Both of the removal services will help take the stress out of your moving day itself, and allow you to focus on making sure everything is going to plan – rather than occupying yourself with physical labour all day. They will also ensure that your possessions will be in safe, professional hands (often with an insurance policy attached), giving you peace of mind on your moving day.

Beyond hiring professional assistance, there is plenty that you should be looking to do yourself before your moving day. One thing that can streamline everything you need to do is make a check list, or several check lists for all of your tasks. One generic check list can be used to cover all the major areas of moving (utilities, packing, legal fees etc). These can then be broken down into smaller check lists; for example, the utilities check list can list all of the companies you need to notify of your change of address, as well as the post office so they can make sure any mail addressed to your old house is forwarded to your new home. Not only will you be less likely to make any glaring mistakes when moving (forget to pack a certain cupboard, miss a utility company off of the list etc), this will also help you streamline your move and become more efficient. You know the stressed, fretted stage of a move where you run around a lot but achieve very little? With a simple list of tasks you are unlikely to get into that dreaded mode of action. Planning and preparation down to the finest detail is vital to making a move an easy and stress free experience.

It is also important to think about your packing materials when planning removals. Many people will think this is a simple process, that a box is a box. However, getting cheap or free second hand boxes is a sure way to make your possessions unsafe. For a small cost, professional and high quality moving items are available that will give you peace of mind that none of your items will be damaged during the move. This combined with planning and professional assistance can assure a move that not only offers little stress, but could also be enjoyable. A home move is supposed to be an exciting new step forward in your life – so why surround it with negativity when a little planning could flip the fortunes of your move around completely.
