When you’re moving to a new home or work premises, it’s important to find a removals company you can truly rely on, with plenty of experience handling fragile and valuable items. You don’t want to worry about your treasured possessions and important items getting broken or lost during the move. We provide removals and storage in Basildon and throughout the UK, and aim to help all our clients enjoy a stress free move. When you are working with us, you’ll have no worries about breakages or loss. Here are some tips for ensuring your move to a new location goes as smoothly as possible.

When moving, appliances such as fridges and freezers will be turned off and on long distance removals, or removals into store, any remaining food or ice inside them may go bad or melt, potentially causing a mess. If you are moving locally pack any fragile items or liquid from your fridge into cool boxes and leave the freezer contents in the freezer. If your removal will take more than one day, or you are going into store, empty both your fridge and freezer and make them as dry as possible. This is also a great time to defrost your appliances and make sure they are clean, ready to use in your new property.

Before moving, you should also think about your utilities. Some choose to simply transfer their existing services to their new premises by updating addresses, but it may be a good time to start searching for better deals that will save you more money. Gas, electricity, water, phone services, internet and television services should all be considered, and the majority of providers do offer a first time discount.

It’s also a good idea to compile a list of companies and organisations that you may need to notify of your move, such as your dentist, bank and doctor’s surgery. Gather any important documents that you may have in your home and make sure that they are all together. A lot of our clients prefer to keep their important papers with them during the move for complete peace of mind, although when you choose our removals and storage in Basildon, you can rest assured that everything will be well looked after.
