Book your removal at least 3 weeks prior to moving day.
Moving companies are usually fully booked at least 2 weeks in advance. It is very important when you have to book a parking space with your council. It will also give you time to familiarise yourself with their terms and conditions, check details of moving.
Sort out the requirements of your real estate.
You cannot leave it for the last minute. If something happens and you cannot move in on the planned day, you would have to pay the minimum charge for the removal booking.
Check if the big items are possible to be taken through the corridor.
You might have scheduled an important meeting straight after the removal. Dismantling sometimes takes long time and if you don’t predict this, you might have to leave some furniture behind or lose an important client.
You should also inform the moving company about fragile items that require special attention or items you are most concern about.
Check if all the items will fit inside the van.
Call the removal company you want to book the service with, ask for dimensions and check if the biggest items fit inside. See if it is possible to dismantle them or if you can book a bigger vehicle.
