The South London Blog have teamed up with OIS Removals London to bring you a special ‘Top 5’ tips to help you move home in London with the least amount of stress possible.
- Eat the contents of the fridge.
An unexpected start to a guide about moving home and possibly our favourite: Eating the contents of your fridge or freezer means that should there be a problem on your moving day and your food gets spoiled, then you will keep wastage to a bare minimum.
- Organise post redirection.
The Royal Mail offer a paid for redirection service, that allows you to redirect all post from your old address to your new home, from the first day you move in. This gives you time to contact all the companies that need to know that you have moved to a new address.
- Get parking spaces suspended.
Did you know that you don’t have to pay for a removal van to park outside your home? Or, that you can stop others from parking there on your big day? Simply get in touch with your local London borough council as soon as you know your moving day and they can organise for parking restrictions to be suspended outside of your address. A good removal company can organise this for you.
- Book the right removal service.
If your London property has two bedrooms or more and you own more than 5 pieces of furniture then you should book a traditional, multi-person removal service. However, if you’re a student or have a property with less than 5 pieces of large furniture and don’t mind helping the mover then book a ‘man and van’ type service, which can end up saving you money.
- Get the right price.
This is possibly the most important piece of advice we can give, while you do not want to pay more than you have to, it’s also important to remember that when it comes to moving your fragile or valuable items across London, you shouldn’t opt for the cheapest price.
An experienced removal company should be able to give you an accurate quote via email or phone. Companies that insist on visiting your home before they give you a quote may just send a high-pressure salesman. OIS Removals are more than happy to give you a quote over the phone and visit in person to confirm it.
