Here are three easy steps to ensure things run smoothly:
House Removal Companies Orpington – Get Started as Early as Possible
. Don’t leave things to the last minute. The moment you have a proposed moving date you should start by finding a reliable house removal company to carry out your house removals. Ideally it is always advisable to choose house removal companies that are a member of BAR, FIDI & OMNI to make sure the company you choose meets the highest standards within the removals industry. By using a BAR registered company, you also have peace of mind with an advance payment protection guarantee.
· The sooner you can arrange for a free quotation, the sooner you will know what the cost will be and you will be able to start the moving process. Once you have booked your chosen removal company, check the remover’s contract and your home insurance. When using a BAR registered removal company, you will have the peace of mind that they will be working to the terms and conditions of a BAR member, and will offer a degree of limited liability insurance. However, it is highly recommended that you ensure that you have arranged adequate cover.
· If you have decided to do the packing yourself, make sure you purchase packing material in good time. White & Company can offer a full range of packing materials at very competitive prices. Check https://www.whiteandcompany.co.uk/packing-solutions/ for details.
· Start packing as soon as you can. Separate everything into ‘keep’, ‘charity shop’ and ‘tip’. Pack items that you will not need to use before the move first and make sure you label every box with its contents and which room it should go to in your new home.
· If you’re downsizing, you may need to put items in storage, White & company offer storage solutions at 16 storage locations throughout the UK. They are able to provide secure containerised storage in personal dedicated storage containers and self-storage units for items to which you need regular, easy access.

About Orpington & House Removal Companies Orpington
Orpington is a suburban town situated in the London Borough of Bromley in Greater London and lies at the south-eastern edge of London’s urban sprawl. One of Orpington’s most historic sites is the thirteenth century priory that stands just off the town’s high street.
This excellent example of a medieval hall house was built as a replacement for the original priory. The Industrial Revolution in the 19th Century had a big impact on the area, as did the coming of the railway network in the 1860’s. The area grew hugely when the main road was built in the 1920’s.
Today, the High Street and adjacent Walnuts Shopping Centre contain a wide variety of high-street shops. There is a market three days a week and several good restaurants to choose from.
Public transport links are excellent; the train station provides access to many areas of London. The busses run at regular intervals to many areas of London. It has become a popular commuter town, being just a 30-minute train journey into the heart of the city.
Over the years the town has been lucky enough to be home to many famous inhabitants such as Jeremy Beadle, the television presenter, musician Dizzee Rascal and most notable of all, Charles Darwin, the Naturalist and author of ‘On the Origin of Species’.
