Top 5 Packing Tips When Moving House

Top Tips for Packing to Move

5 – Getting the right materials – box size, wall thickness, twisting and crushing, furniture covers, packing paper, bubble wrap, taped up boxes.
4 – Think of the weight – carrying, stacking, risk of crushing (you can’t put every box on the bottom)
3 – Labelling each box with contents and destination room
2 – Ruthless decluttering
1  – Food, smellies and banned goods
All – Get someone else to do it – speed, experience, insurance

Using Appropriate Materials

Moving home can be very expensive, so there are no end of tips and advice on the internet that should help to reduce the cost. Unfortunately, some of those tips, though well-meaning and seeming to make economic sense, can create problems when put into practice.

One such tip is about acquiring boxes. Not all boxes are suitable for moving home. Those that you can get from behind the wheelie bins at your local supermarket or the loading bays at Central Milton Keynes Shopping Centre were invariably designed to transport specific goods. Since packaging is an additional expense for manufacturers, they will use the minimum amount of material necessary and the items within the box will generally have their own protective packaging, so the outer box will usually be quite thin. Therefore, most of the boxes you find will be inadequate for moving your belongings.

Removals boxes need to be strong because they are going to be stacked on a removals van. They need to contain your goods while retaining their shape and they need to support the boxes that are stacked on top of them.
The worst type of box to use, is one that cannot be sealed. If a box can’t be sealed into a stackable cuboid, it no good for moving home.

The best boxes are the ones designed for removals and used by removals companies around the world. These are sturdy, double walled boxes that offer protection for the contents and allow for easier stacking. 

So where can you buy packing boxes? There are a few listings on online shopping sites, but caution is advised. Buying boxes online can be expensive especially when buying “Moving Packs”. The boxes are often sub-standard and the packing tape is often overpriced and of poor quality.

The best place to buy removals boxes is directly from a removals company such as Isis Relocation in Milton Keynes. They will supply the same high quality boxes, packing paper and packing tape that they use for their full packing service. The surveyor will usually tell you how many boxes you need when he visits to price your move.

The Beginner’s Guide using a House Removals Company Milton Keynes

To overcome moving stress, cost, and fatigue, it is highly recommended that you hire a reliable house removals company in Milton keynes.

Relocating can be an exciting procedure, but transferring items from one place to another can be very stressful. While it is possible to complete this task independently, ‘flying solo’ when moving can be hectic and tiring. Many people choose to relocate independently to save costs, but it can often be more costly in the long-term. 
While there are numerous house removal companies available in Milton Keynes, finding the most suitable one can be difficult. To locate the ideal company, it is important to take various considerations into account. This article will discuss finding a suitable house removals company and how to effectively set up a relocation agreement.

1. Finding A Reliable House Removal Company in Milton Keynes

As is mentioned, there are numerous removal companies available to hire. Due to the convenience of the internet the majority of these businesses now promote their services online. It may be tempting to choose the first business listed on a Google search engine results list; however, this can be very detrimental and could be a mistake. Instead, you should do some research and find at least three companies to compare.
When reviewing the companies, there are certain factors to look for. One of the most important is the issue of customer service. Customer service or reputation can be determined by reading testimonials by previous clients. Fortunately, many companies provide testimonials on their official websites; unfortunately, these testimonials are not always honest and may misrepresent the business. It is recommended you check third-party review websites for service reviews to obtain an honest opinion like the Alliance of Independent Movers ( AIM )
A further factor that should be considered when searching for the ideal house removals company is their project portfolio. Many individuals may find this irrelevant, but reviewing whether the business offers a service suitable to your needs is essential. For example, smaller companies may not offer commercial relocation services or provide storage facilities for excess goods.

2. Begin Making Appointments

Once you have shortlisted the companies for your house removal in Milton Keynes, it is time to set up appointments with each of them. This will allow you to determine the cost of the entire house removal serviceand find out if they are genuine or fraudulent. Authentic companies tend to discuss all issues during an initial consultation which may be over the phone or face-to-face. It is recommended that you opt for a face-to-face consultation as these are often free of charge and will allow you to review the facility.
While determining the cost and services of the company is important, it is also important to take into account the company’s insurance and licensing. The UK require removals vehicles to be licensed and insured in order to complete relocation projects. During an initial consultation, it is recommended that you request a copy of these documents to prove the service is authentic and legal.

3. Signing The Removals Agreement

A reputable moving company will charge on the basis of cubic feet. It is typical that a genuine company will charge on the goods being removed onto the vehicle and this must be reviewed before signing an agreement. Never sign a blank agreement and always read the contract carefully before signing on the dotted line. GET A QUOTE FOR YOUR REMOVAL IN MILTON KEYNES
