Either because your house has become too small to expand the family, because you should live in another area for work reasons, because your rental contract has ended and you cannot renew it, because the moment has finally arrived when you could buy a house, etc.
As you can see, many possible reasons may lead you to have to move to a new house. A move brings with it a lot of emotion and stress, nerves, and a lot of doubts. At that moment, when questions start to cross your mind, the first thing you should do is contact a company of specialists in home removals and count on them to dispel those possible doubts that may arise. To do this, in this post, we are going to talk about key questions that we think you should ask before your move.
Should I unsubscribe and register supplies? This question is very common, and when we move, we not only have to take into account that personal items, furniture, appliances, etc., must be moved. We must also consider that supplies such as internet or electricity if they are in our name, we are the ones who must cancel the old home and manage the registration in the new one. Unless the new home conditions are different and the supplies are provided directly to you, in that case, we have to manage with the landlord, the agency, or former tenant, a change of ownership, or another agreement.
How much moving? This may seem silly, but before hiring a moving company, always ask for a budget. This will help you know the final cost of the move and not be an unwanted surprise for you at the end of the service.
Is it safe to trust my move in a company? For this question, we have a clear answer, and that is that if you trust your move in a serious company with professionals, you will not have any problem. All your objects will be safe, and you will have a service that will greatly facilitate this moving process. Of course, for this, as we mentioned, you must have a company specialized in home removals such as ours.
Have you thought about the things that you can’t move in a move?
In our blog about shipping and removals, we want to answer this question that, surely, you have asked yourself more than once before a possible move. If you want to know what to do with everything you don’t want in your new apartment, keep reading:
Not all, but many of us always have at home some old or restored furniture from an inheritance or bought in the market, for example, but that does not fit at all in the new home. There are solutions to get rid of them:
We offer a successful furniture storage service, thanks to our large facilities prepared exclusively for good storage. It’s another idea; you can take them apart very carefully and store them in the attic or storage room of the new house if you have one.
Ideas for old or broken junk
Another thing is those decorative objects or furniture that have always been in your house but hidden in attics or under beds because they are deteriorated by the passage of time, old or broken. The good idea is that you contact us to transfer them directly to the nearest recycling plant, but if you really do not want to dispose of them because of their great sentimental value, repair them before moving them to the new home.
Ideas for what you do want in your new home
If you are alone and do not have a van or truck of considerable dimensions, you should contact moving and storage companies like ours. For affordable rates, we can carry out all the necessary tasks with the utmost professionalism: packing, dismantling, transfer … Our team of carriers and freight porters have been working in this sector for years, so the results are more than guaranteed.
Tips for a stress-free move
There will be many moving companies in, but the truth is that we have been doing them for years and even decades, which is why we believe that we are more than accredited to give you these ‘tips’ that, if you take them into account, will save you headaches and stress before a possible change of residence. Keep reading:
Ensure that the new house is going to be totally clean and you can directly place the furniture and order the rest of the move as soon as you arrive. Also, before that day, it would not hurt if you made the necessary repairs inside.
It is a very lazy step, but you have to take it, and you should do it in time: cancel the services of your old residence and hire them in the new one. You will see how nice it is to settle in and have water or Internet.
Define the time and day of the move
To do this, you will have to consider such elementary issues as these: when you move to another building, you should check the regulations of the new place to see if there are specific days and times to do this kind of work. You should also make sure that the moving truck can be parked in front of both houses during the transfer and, if not, request the relevant authorities for it.
Ask for several quotes.
We recommend requesting up to three different estimates, more than enough, so that you can analyze and compare the service of several companies in your area. To know the exact price, it is also important that you indicate all the works you want in addition to the transfer, such as packaging, assembly, or disassembly of furniture.
You can also do these complementary tasks yourself, but if so, the sooner you start, the better. Get rid of those things that will not be useful in the new house. Pack the fragile things calmly and write on the outside of the box what it contains so that it is easier for you to find it later.
If you want to know our very competitive prices, considering the quality of our requested service, get in touch with us, and we will prepare a totally personalized budget without any commitment. You will not be able to refuse it!
How to make good use of space when packing for a move
When it comes time to make a move, it is very important to find out about different aspects beforehand. A move can bring a lot of stress and many doubts; therefore, the more planned, organized, and thought everything, the better it will turn out. This will result in fewer nerves, and that despite the nerves and stress that it carries, we will handle it much better. For this reason, knowing which packaging for moving is the best and how to use it to make better use of space is key. For this reason, in this post, we will tell you little tricks to make your move easier, and in less space, you can move the largest number of objects and belongings.
Get good materials: The first thing to do is to have high-quality materials. Since if we choose a cardboard box that is not resistant at all, no matter how well we take advantage of all the space, it will not support the weight, and it will not serve us anything. Therefore, if we get moving packaging made with good materials, we can load them without fear of breaking. We find boxes, bags, labels, adhesive tapes, filling material such as bubble wrap, etc.
Choose the perfect size: This advice is key, and that is that getting boxes and bags of different sizes will give you the option to see which packaging is ideal for some or other objects. For example, if you are a person who keeps many photo albums, perhaps a medium box for them is ideal; While if you have a few DVD movies or books, perhaps with a smaller box you can organize yourself wonderfully.
Get organized by zones: When packing and unpacking easier, we suggest you go saving your breakfast items. In this way, the things in the kitchen will be all together, those in the living room the same, those in the bathroom, those in the bedrooms, etc. This small gesture will greatly facilitate the placement of these elements in the new house. So it is a recommendation that we encourage you to carry out.
