At a first glance, it may seem that such magic does not exist, but this might not be true, as our experience suggests. There are actually several removal tips which can assure you a far more pleasant and free of problems removal experience. And what is even better, most of them are truly easy to follow and all you need to do is to have some concentration and do some planning, well, you also need to know what you want to achieve, of course. If you are not sure if you want to move a piece of furniture, you cannot expect that the removal company would be able to do the choice for you. So what can you do better?
For example, it is a very good idea to make a list. Carefully write down what you would like to move so that you do not forget anything. You will see that you will have good ideas how to combine items so that you can save place. Then put a number on your boxes so that you know what is where. You will save so much time when you start unpacking later on – you cannot even imagine it. And your new place will start feeling more comfortable than the previous very quickly. Also get more boxes, glue, packing paper, bubble wrap, tape – the chance that you need more than you can imagine initially is very, very high. And you will not have the time to go for extra supplies once you started packing, so act more wisely and buy a little bit more. After all, you can always use them later or give your neigbours the rest. The boxes in this case are very useful as they can have light items like pillows squeezed in them and thus, create more space in the van. Do get more boxes – you will definitely need them. Plus they also protect items from damage, of course.
If you do a Google search about “moving“, “moving to a new home“, “moving house“, “office relocation“etc., you will find a pile of articles stating that “Moving Sucks!”. But is it really the truth or there are just so many people that are not prepared to deal with this part of the everyday life? Let’s review the most often cited reasons regarding the removal “business” and look at it from another perspective:
And here come the most common mistakes non-profesional movers make in the everyday life, and what you should do to avoid them (generally you will avoid all movers mistakes by hiring Best London Removals to do the removal job for you, but not all people are that wise):
1. Packing takes time – don’t forget it.
Well, if you are to do the packing on your own, just plan it carefully. Packing, padding, and securing all the belongings in even the smallest apartment can take an unexpected amount of time. You should make a list of your goods, divide them into categories and group them according to the packing boxes.
Hiring professional packers, movers, and sometimes cleaners is a good option, but not everyone is willing to trust outsiders for the job. Anyway, don’t forget that being unprepared when the moving trucks arrive is never a good idea.
Your business is growing and the office you have rented is not big enough. The solution is to move to a bigger location. This step is neither simple, nor relaxing, but it’s necessary. Businesses need to ensure the minimum disturbance to employees and office equipment during the relocation. If a removal is not well planned anxiety levels within the business can lead to reduced efficiency. Read more

t’s been a long time since our last post here, but unfortunately (or should I say fortunately) we’ve been quite busy doing removal services for our customers, so there hasn’t been much time to write.
Anyway, the flat moving described here happened in late September and included a complete removal of a 2-bedroom appartment (3rd floor, no lift 🙁 ) in London to a 3-bedroom house – no lift needed 🙂 in Newquay.
