House Removal Companies Tamworth – Get Started as Early as Possible
. Don’t leave things to the last minute. The moment you have a proposed moving date you should look for 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 the cost and be in a position to instruct your removal company. It is always wise to 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 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 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 Tamworth and House Removal Companies Tamworth
Tamworth is a large market town. It is situated in the county of Staffordshire and is around 14 miles from Birmingham. The river Tame flows through the town and this is the origin of the towns name. It has been through some ups and downs during its history. There has been a settlement here since the Roman occupation of Britain.
The title of Market Town was granted in 1319 and later during the middle ages it was agreed that Tamworth could hold two annual fairs each year. In those days, fairs attracted buyers and sellers from great distances and many of the visiting people stayed and the town grew in size.1345 saw a huge fire swept through the streets and much of the area was burnt to the ground. In the mid to late 1500’s the outbreak of bubonic plague reduced the size of the town but again, the population recovered.
Today it is a thriving and busy place in which to live. At its centre is a variety of specialist shops. Little Church Lane and Lower Gungate have some unique independent stores selling a range of gifts and jewellery. The town is busy on Tuesdays and Saturdays when the market is in full swing. Alongside the individual shops are popular high street stores such as John Lewis, Marks & Spencer and Sainsbury’s.
For something a little more energetic, Tamworth offers 21 miles of cycle paths, great for all the family. The Birmingham and Fazeley Canal and the Coventry Canal are both within easy reach. With its excellent transport links to other larger towns and cities, Tamworth is a great place to live.
