No one likes moving house, yet it is something that everyone encounters at some point in their lives. Like anything else, there’s a right and a wrong way to go about relocating your worldly goods, and with that in mind, here are some tips on how to make moving a stress-free affair.
- Choosing the Right Removal Company – The secret to an uneventful move lies with your choice of contractor, so do take your time, and when looking for affordable domestic removals in Sheffield, it makes sense to do a little research. The removalist would ideally be well-established within the local community, and have a few rave reviews to show you.
- Let the Professionals Do the Packing – It is perfectly understandable that some people are reluctant to let strangers manhandle their most personal possessions, yet tackling the packing yourself is not recommended. The removalist would supply all the packing materials, and with a friendly “can do” attitude, the team would work to their system, and all boxes and crates would be labelled, ensuring they end up in the right rooms.
- Create your Inventory – This is the first thing the removal contractor would require: a comprehensive list of all the items that are going, which is essential for the removal people to quote for the project. Use colour labels, with green for “going” and red for “staying”, which really helps the team pack, and work from room to room, noting the contents of each box on the side.
Try to find a local family-run business, as they would have a good reputation with the community, and providing the quote is reasonable, clarify what you expect the removalist to do.
