House Removals Guernsey tip 1: Hire a reputable removal company

Consider if you would like them to take care of all the packing, some of it or whether you would like to pack yourself.

House Removals Guernsey 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 Guernsey 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 Guernsey 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 Guernsey tip 5: Pack a survival box
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 Guernsey 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 Guernsey tip 7: Make sure your remover 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.
There are many reasons why you may also require storage facilities. This could be due to a delay between the sale and purchase of your new home. You may be working abroad or carrying out some renovations on your new home before you move in. Maybe you need storage prior to the sale of your home to maximise the potential of your property to prospective purchasers by clearing some of the clutter.
19 Storage Sites Across UK
Perhaps you would like to store items during months they are not required, such as bulky garden furniture and other outdoor equipment. Whatever your reason, White & Company can offer competitive rates for both domestic and business customers at our 19 storage locations throughout the UK. Our storage facilities are clean, dry, secure and accredited to European standard BS EN 14873. You can rest assured that everything you leave with us will be safely stored until you need it.
House Removals Guernsey 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.

Where is Guernsey
The map below shows the location of Guernsey.
This beautiful Channel Island is a fantastic place to visit or, if you are lucky enough, to reside in. A British crown dependency, the island has so much to offer. You will find that it provides residents with a safe, healthy and cosmopolitan environment in which to live and work.
The weather is perfect, mild winters and warm summers. There are many beautiful beaches to explore. Tiny coves and long stretches of white sand with crystal clear waters. Water sports are a very popular pastime. Kayaking, surfing and diving to name a few. The countryside is equally as stunning as the coast line. Hikers from all over the world come to the island to enjoy the coastal walkways.
For those who are interested in history, there is plenty to see. Explore Neolithic sites, stoic Castle Cornet, and ancient burial sites like Le Creux es Faies, a tomb that was once believed to be the gateway to a magical fairyland.
It is well worth taking some time to research the facilities and amenities of your new area. Here is a list of schools and professional services in the Guernsey area.
