House removals are one of the most stressful life events with the average person moving home five times during their lifetime. With 61 per cent of people placing the ordeal at the top of their stress list, it is essential to use a reputable company to carry out your house removals. Ideally it is always advisable to choose a removals company that is a member of BAR, FIDI & OMNI, to make sure the company you choose meets the highest standards within the removals industry.

There are a number of things, which you can do to ensure everything runs smoothly.

House Removals Brighton tip 1: Hire a reputable removal company

Hiring the right removals company will make all the difference, if you’re after a stress-free moving day. Consider if you would like them to take care of all the packing, some of it or whether you would like to pack yourself. White & Company have been based in the area for over 145 years and provide a full removals & storage solution.

House Removals Brighton tip 2: Book your removals company as soon as possible

Dependent on the time of year you are looking to move, planning ahead and booking your removals company is key to a stress free day. If you moving during the busy summer months, you will need to give at least four weeks notice in order to secure your booking.

House Removals Brighton tip 3: Get someone to look after young children

Because moving house can be very stressful and also a very emotional time, it is best to get someone to look after young children, so they do not become bored or fractious. The same goes for pets, it is best to arrange for them to go into kennels or a cattery as they often become disorientated.

House Removals Brighton tip 4: Make sure everyone is informed

As soon as the removals team arrives, make sure they have your mobile number and you have a number to contact them in case of an emergency. You should also have the numbers of your bank, estate agent and solicitor. Also make sure you have arranged a time to collect the keys to your new house.

You will also have to inform all your utility companies that you are moving and perhaps select different suppliers at your new home.

House Removals Brighton tip 5: Pack a survival box to go 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.

House Removals Brighton tip 6: Start moving day early

This is the day to set the alarm and get started early, as there will be a number of things you will need to do. Start by stripping the beds and packing up last minute things. Dismantle furniture, take photos of energy meter readings when you leave and also when you arrive at your new home, to avoid being overcharged. Taking pictures of wire fittings on electronic equipment such as computers will also help you set them up properly when you arrive. Set aside the hoover and cleaning equipment for your last-minute clear up before you leave the house.

House Removals Brighton tip 7: Make sure your removalist has storage space available

Often when you move into a new property you may want to redecorate or carry out building works. If this is the case, ideally you will want to store some of your larger pieces of furniture until the work has been completed. If you choose a removal company who has storage facilities, then they can store these pieces for you until you are ready to receive them at your new home.

House Removals Brighton tip 8 – Check your insurance cover

Do not assume that the removal company you have chosen will have adequate insurance to cover all your valuable items. Make sure you have checked the small print and arrange additional cover if necessary. When using a BAR registered removal company, you will have the piece 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.

About Brighton

If you are living or just visiting Brighton, you will discover a vibrant cosmopolitan city of around 250,000 people. It is also home to many international students attending its two universities. Renowned for its festivals, beach and nightlife and one of the fastest growing digital sectors in the UK. It has been a popular holiday destination for many years and the beautiful Sussex countryside is only minutes away. Commuting into London is easy, with a train journey of approximately 50 minutes.

Take a stroll down the promenade and walk out onto the grade 2 listed pier. Originally built in 1858 and then was re-built in 1899, when the original was washed away by a fierce storm. It was hugely popular with the Victorians and held many attractions such as carousels, slot machines and traditional fairground stalls. It is still popular today and has grown over the years to house more modern facilities, such as restaurants and the Turbo Coaster, a fast white knuckle ride!

Like the city itself shopping is also a cosmopolitan experience. From the modern shopping mall in Churchill Square, to the antique jewellery shops of the ‘Lanes’ in the old town or the bohemian shops of North Laine and Churchill Square.
