Removal Information

Removal day

Please get your items in advance as close to the exit as possible without blocking your way through, please try to keep the items in the order they will need to be loaded into the van, this is:

1st. Awkward Items (Large bulky items, mirrors, frames, ironing boards, flat packed items, standing lamps, chest of drawers)

2nd.
Closed boxes & suitcases (boxed sized objects).

3rd.
Bags & holdalls.


About open boxes

Please close and seal all of your boxes, boxes left open with items protruding are awkward and can be dangerous. If an item will not fit in a box please do not try to squeeze it in, bubble wrap it separately.


Bagging items

If possible try to use suitcases, rucksacks and other items of luggage to pack clothes etc, these are preferable to black plastic bags which are often over filled and tear easily. If you do have to use sacks try to use top quality bags or even garden refuse bags which are very thick.


Access

It is also a good idea to ensure that all doors, stairs, lifts and hallways are clear of obstructions. This will create a steady flow from the room to the vehicle.


Fridges and Freezers

Try not to buy any fridge or freezer food for at least two weeks before you are due to move, so nothing goes to waste. Remember to defrost and drain at least 48 hours before the move. Appliances must be dry.


Beds

If your bed can be dismantled please ensure this is done prior to your move, this will save time and space.


Flat Pack Furniture

Dismantle self assembly furniture in advance and tape all the pieces together to stop them sliding around and separating during transit. Remember to put all nuts and bolts in a jiffy bag and preferably tape it to the item it came from.
