5 Tips to Help You Move House – Removal Van and Man


Whether this is your first time moving house or you have moved multiple times, moving house always brings a unique set of challenges. Thankfully, Kevin’s Vans man with a van service can help you move house with ease.

Choose a Moving Date

Moving can be a very stressful time, but there are some ways you can help minimize this impact. This one may seem obvious, but choosing your moving date carefully can make a huge difference. This has to be planned for well in advance as it hugely depends on the contract completion date, so it is important that you consider this in the early stages of moving house. Great times to move are Fridays, school holidays, the end of the month and bank holidays. Fridays are a great time to move as it gives you the full weekend to unpack your belongings and settle into your new home, bank holidays can also be great as they allow an extra day of unpacking. This also applies to school holidays as they allow plenty of time to unpack, but also gives kids the perfect opportunity to settle into the new surroundings. The end of the month can also be a great time to move as it may give you more spare cash to spend on any essentials you need for your new home.

Stagger Your Move

Again, this can require some planning in advance, but it can have a huge impact on your move. If you have the luxury of time or the opportunity to take your time while moving, settling in can be much easier. Staggering your move gives you extra time to clean the new house to ensure that it has been cleaned thoroughly before you move in. Furthermore, staggering the move allows you to have urgent deliveries such as washing machines which can be installed in advance of your move. It can also allow for extra time to ensure that your phone, electricity and gas are all connected. Finally, staggering your move can provide time to make improvements on your new home before you move in.

Moving Your Belongings

This is obviously the most important stage of moving house, and it is vital that you get this stage right. With the help of a removal van and man, you can rest assured that your belonging will be moved safely and efficiently from A to B. To make the process easier, you may wish to make lists and work out what belonging you want to keep and which ones you wish to dispose of. This will make moving house much easier and a smooth, enjoyable process.

Get Utilities Connected

Getting connected is vital when moving house, so it is important that you leave plenty of time to ensure everything is fully connected. You should leave around four weeks to ensure everything is fully connected. Furthermore, you should check with providers for a better deal to ensure that you get the most for your money.

Let Everyone Know

From friends and family to the post office and the bank, it is important that you let everyone know that you are moving. We have put together a list of just a few people you need to get in touch with when moving house:
