Complete moving house checklist from Best London Removals

Several procedures are necessary for successful house removal, no matter if you are moving to London, Manchester, Glasgow, or moving internationally.

Professional removal companies are familiar with the process, but most of the customers are not, and we believe it is our responsibility to introduce the people who are planning their move to the basics of complete house removal.

Complete Moving House Checklist

– It should start with removal company research, selection, and booking- Fix your budget, obtain a written removal quotation, and ensure the company provides moving transit insurance.- Secure the household insurance for your new home.

– Draw a plan of your new home – all floors – rooms, corridors, closets, etc. should be included. The plan should be used for designing the optimal furniture placement. You should measure the spaces to ensure your furniture will fit. Assure that large items would fit through doors.
