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.
Do you like unpleasant surprises? Probably, you don’t. In order to avoid them, it’s always better to think ahead. When we speak about house removals, there are so many problems that can occur. Our Best London Removals team have faced most of the issues in our everyday work, so we’ve prepared some information for you. Here you can read what can go wrong and how you can deal easily with some of the issues.
This domestic removal was a challenge, not because of its difficulty, but simply because it was to be completed in one day by two man and a van only. The task was to move a 2 bedrooms house in Bedford to a third floor, 2 bedrooms flat in Southgate, London.
For the completion of the abovementioned task Best London Removals provided:
- Removal van with 2 men
- protective blankets
- And of course – high quality, insured, timely and predictable removal service.
Started at 11.30am, completed at 6.30pm
Best London Removals team arrived at client’s home at 11.15am.
The client was absolutely prepared and had packed everything in about 50 boxes in various sizes and about 15 plastic bags.
Apart from the boxes described above, we had to move several items of big furniture. Amongst them were – three and two seater leather sofas, 2 x double size beds with mattress, fridge freezer, washing machine, table with chairs, PC desk. There was also a wardrobe, which this time we didn’t have the pleasure to dismantle, for it was neatly taken apart and flat packed by the client.
After a quick cup of coffee we began moving the boxes and loading them into the van.
After that we carefully covered the furniture with protective blankets to ensure that no scratches would at any point appear on the client’s belongings. The loading process took about 2h 30min.
Travel to Southgate, London took 50 min.
Around 3.00pm we were at destination address and started unloading. All Items had go to the flat at 3rd floor and unfortunately there wasn’t lift.
Here is the point to mention, that before leaving to Bedford, we had providently called for a support from a colleague of our to join us and help with the unloading and moving the goods to the third floor.
It took 3 hours of hard work to get everything up in the flat, but we did our best to do it without any problems with the moving goods.
All moving boxes were placed into designation rooms and the furniture was laid up, and around 6.30 pm we were done.
We believe the customer appreciated the good work, since after the job was done he had the beer on him.
The domestic removal service included packing and moving a 2 bedrooms first floor flat in Finchley to a 2 bedrooms flat in Liverpool.
