Here are three easy steps to ensure things run smoothly:

House Removal Companies Reading – 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. Check https://www.whiteandcompany.co.uk/storage-solutions/ for more details.

· Make a list of all utilities companies you will need to inform and do this as soon as you have a confirmed moving date.

· Arrange to have your mail redirected by contacting the Post Office, though this will incur a small fee.

About Reading and House Removal Companies Reading

There has been a settlement in the Reading area since the middle ages. During the Medieval Period, Reading Abbey had strong Royal connections. The town was seriously affected by the English Civil War, with a major siege and loss of trade, and played a pivotal role in the Revolution of 1688. Today the town has grown into a thriving and busy centre. The smaller surrounding villages such as Tilehurst, Newtown and Southcote have become inextricably linked together to form a larger community. Reading now has a well established reputation as a cultural centre with some great theatres, impressive sports facilities and a huge diary of events and festivals.

If you are considering moving to Reading, you will find a buoyant housing market here. Having undergone a boom in recent years, it has become an increasingly popular town for buying property. Currently, there are some beautiful period homes on the market, from stunning Victorian villas to modern apartments. The council has pushed through a number of housing developments in an effort to keep up with the demand. Developments such as Kennet Island, West Village and Tamesis Reach have sprung up, aimed at both young professionals and family housing.
