Tips for moving house

Moving house can be stressful and here at Phillips Removals we know this and so we have come up with these tips for moving house to help your move run as simply and smoothly as possible.

Try to avoid moving house on a Friday. If you decide to move on a Friday and there is a problem or delay with the financial transaction, then you may have to wait until Monday to sort it all out.
Try to avoid overfilling boxes as they need to be easily liftable and packable in the back of our vans.
Don’t make the boxes too heavy as this will make them unsafe to lift and pack on our lorry.
Try to put all your personal belongings into a designated room to separate them from the other boxes that we will be packing onto our lorry.
If you are taking any gas, electric or water appliances you will need to disconnect them prior to moving.
Run down or empty out all the food in your fridge freezers as they are not designed to be moved when full.
If you have young children or pets it is advisable to leave them with family or friends as moving house can be an especially stressful time for them.
It is essential that you make sure there is easy access and available parking at both properties so that our team can safely load and unload your possessions. If there is not then you will need to arrange a fitting alternative to allow us to make your move run as smoothly as possible.
In general items in chests of drawers can usually be left in the drawers if they are non breakable and not too heavy, with the exception of drawers in divan beds due to the weight.
