House removals Oxford tip 1: Hire a reputable removal company

House removals Oxford 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 Oxford 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 Oxford 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 Oxford 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 Oxford 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 Oxford 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 Oxford 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 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.
