Moving house mistakes that you are likely to make

If you are about to move house for the first time, you may feel a bit overwhelmed by the frustrations that are associated with moving, this is normal. Even people who have moved house frequently are prone to making mistakes. However, this article will help you make the right judgement before you move.  Below are some of the mistakes you are likely to make.

Doing too little research on moving companies

Many people have had their items damaged by untrustworthy moving companies without the correct insurance or other industry requirements with no recourse to claim back damages. Moving can be expensive and that’s why when comparing moving prices it may feel tempting to opt for the cheapest quote. This is where people go wrong. Is the company licensed? Are their services reliable? Do they have they have enough experience? How do I choose which is the best company to use? Always take time to research and read online reviews that have been posted about the company. There are many questions you need to ask a removal company before entering into a contract with them.

Trying to do it all by yourself

Mostly, for first timers, they imagine moving house is just as an activity like any other. This is wrong, moving is a demanding process so if your are thinking of doing it yourself think again.  Packing and moving by yourself may be almost impossible especially if you have a large property. Some people find themselves requesting help from friends and relatives. Friends can be of help, but it’s good to involve the professionals.

Booking a moving company at the last minute

During the peak seasons moving companies get fully booked. Most removal companies are always busy and try to maximise their fleet operations.  The wisest decision you can make is to book your move with plenty of time to spare.  As soon as you decide on the moving date you should contact the removal company immediately.

Packing too much

So you want to carry all your old items to your new place, think again! When you get to your new house you will most likely find that majority of your furniture doesn’t fit. To avoid this think carefully about what you really need for your new place. If your current items won’t go well with your new home then sell them.
