Removals Tip Of The Week: #8 Disconnect Appliances Before Moving Day

Kitchen appliances should be disconnected either a day or two prior to moving day, or in the morning before you start moving items. Always turn off the power 1st, then disconnect the appliance as required. Washing machines and dishwashers will need the water supply turned off before unscrewing water pipes and waste pipes. It's worth giving the pipes a good shake before you move them, as water quiet often gets stuck in the pipes, and can drip out while being transported on the van. If you still have your transit bolts from the washing machine you can re-insert them for transit. Freezers should be defrosted a day or two prior to the move, and once in your new property, give them a couple of ho

Removals Tip Of The Week: #6 Packing The Van

Depending on the size, shape and volume of your van, you need to use all the space to your advantage wherever possible. Blankets and strong tie ups help you to accomplish this effectively. Remember to try and use the full height of the van, turn things on their end like sofas, with a blanket or two for protection where needed. Tie other things to the wall that may tip or fall whilst being transported, like lamps or book cases. Stack lighter boxes on top of heavier ones to make a base layer you can build on top of. Also make sure you have completely secured everything before you drive off to your new home. ScheduleScheduleScheduleScheduleScheduleScheduleScheduleScheduleScheduleSchedule

Removals Tip Of The Week: #5 Boxes & Packing Materials

We are still amazed when we find customers using the biggest box they can find, then filling it with the heaviest items they own, like books or tins of food. We recommend using smaller more manageable boxes for your heavy items, and save the larger boxes for the lighter items like duvets & pillow. You want to get yourself some good strong, sturdy cardboard boxes that can take a bit of weight in them. A good mix of small, medium an large is usually enough for most homes to be packed up ready for moving day. Other essentials include packing tape, packing paper and bubble wrap for your precious items. It doesn't hurt to label the boxes either, so you know which room to put them in when you ariv
