Choosing a Long Distance Removals Company

When deciding on a removals company for your long distance move, it is essential to consider both the location you are moving to along with the area you are leaving.

You should ideally opt for a company that has a host of locations throughout the UK, ensuring they have a great knowledge of the area.

This will mean the company is able provide the best possible service wherever you are, knowing the best routes through the area and being able to adapt to any issues that arise.

The Best Time to Move Long Distance

Ideally, any planned long distance move should take place during the summer months for a number of reasons.

Firstly, if you have children, this will cause far less disruption to their education and schooling.

It gives you plenty of time to find them a new school local to your new home where they can settle in from the beginning of the new term.

Secondly, the days are much longer during the summer, so you can get far more done during this time.

Odds are the weather will be much dryer and brighter, as no one wants to carry boxes or move heavy items in the wind, rain, sleet and snow!

Planning Your Journey

Before setting off, make sure to map out your journey well in advance of moving day.

Include plans to take plenty of rest stops at motorway service stations to recharge and refresh.

The AA recommends that drivers should take a 15 minute break every 2 hours, and not exceed 8 hours of driving in any one day.

So if your journey is from one end of the British Isles to the other, consider an overnight stay and book a suitable hotel.

This will help you and your family to get a good nights sleep before completing the second leg of your journey.

Travelling with Pets

If you’re taking pets along for the ride, don’t forget about their needs either!

Schedule in extra time for extended stops for food, water and toilet breaks.

Children also tend to require more toilet breaks than adults, so always compensate for longer breaks than you would normally expect if travelling by yourself.
