The process of finding good Brighton removalists can seem daunting but here are some useful tips on appointing a removals company:

Use accredited Brighton Removalists

There is a whole host of companies ranging from the man with a van, to much larger nationwide removals companies. It is advisable to always choose a company who is a member of BAR (The British Association of Removers). Choosing a BAR Member will ensure your move goes smoothly and you will have the added peace of mind that comes from using a reputable, professional and safe remover. In the unfortunate event that something goes wrong, you will have someone to turn to. A BAR member is easily recognised by their membership badge, when choosing a removalist, check that they have this badge displayed on their website and all documentation.

Get a written quotation from Brighton removalists

Approach companies that can send a trained professional to your home to provide a consultation in order to assess as accurately as possible the following:

  • The volume of goods to be moved.
  • The access to the property and to ascertain things like how many flights of stairs there are inside the home etc.
  • If there are any particularly difficult items such as antiques, large mirrors, pianos or other things needing special attention.
  • How many things you will want to be professionally packed and whether packing materials are required.

Once this consultation has been carried out, they will supply a written quotation. This is a fixed price that can’t be changed once accepted by the customer and will hold true even if it means more work than was first anticipated. A quotation should always outline exactly what is covered and anything subject to additional charges, so you will know exactly what the bottom line will be. Once you have your written quotation, make sure that you check it carefully before proceeding.

White & Company can arrange a no obligation home visit during which we will explain the process and provide you with an itemised quote: hq@whiteandcompany.co.uk

Tips on packing before moving day

Ideally you will have decided to get your removalist to take care of the packing. However, if you decide to pack yourself, here are some helpful tips to ensure everything runs smoothly:

It really helps protect your possessions if you use good quality packing materials. Ideally you should order packing material well in advance, you are likely to need the following:

  • Boxes – (get a good assortment of sized boxes withsome heavy duty boxes and wardrobe boxes).
  • Packing tape
  • Old newspapers
  • Bubble wrap
  • Stretch wrap for furniture
  • Labels
  • Marker pens

White & Company can offer everything you need for self-packing, contact your local branch for more details: hq@whiteandcompany.co.uk

Start the packing process early; it always takes much longer than you think. As a guide, allow two months for larger houses and one month for smaller homes.

Declutter before you pack – there is really no point in moving things you will discard upon arrival at your new home. Now is the time to do a boot fair or sell unwanted items on sites such ebay: www.ebay.co.uk/

Pack one room at a time, starting with the rooms you least use. Make sure you list what is in each box and label to tell the movers where it should go on arrival. Pack heavy things at the bottom and fragile items on top, using plenty of packing materials. Do not exceed a weight of 13 kilograms per box or you may cause injury when lifting them, remember to pack light items in larger boxes and heavy things in small boxes.

Always pack a box of essentials to take with you in the car; this should include tea, coffee, milk, kettle and mugs. Some snacks, a can opener and some eating utensils. Some basic tools and a first aid kit along with any necessary instruction manuals for the appliances you are moving. It is also wise to carry on your person any medication you may need.
