Why Use A Professional Packing Service When Moving Home?
There are many benefits of using a Professional Packing Service as part of your removals service when moving home as it takes some of the time and stress involved in those last few weeks before you move.
If you haven’t moved for a long time then it’s easy to forget the packing part of your move and the time it actually takes. Often you are pulled into a false sense of security as you make an offer on a new home and your offer is accepted, then there is a hustle of activity sorting documents for your solicitor and then this is often followed by a lul of quietness.
It’s this time when people lose focus and just wait to hear from their solicitor or estate agent as to the next steps and timelines. Solicitors are often quiet whilst they are carrying out their searches and the legal part of your move, and they will be juggling lots of cases so yours won’t be their number one focus. If you don’t keep on top of them your case file can keep being moved to the bottom of their list and then suddenly they’ll contact you and say the legal requirements are all done and your move date is x. This can take people by surprise making the last weeks or even days of their moving process extremely time-consuming and stressful.
Our Moving Advice
Read our essential and extensive Moving Checklist to help you ensure you understand what you should do and when as well as the documents you will need when moving home.
Always try to be ahead of the game with your move from putting your house on the market through to exchange and completion. Always keep in regular contact with your solicitor and estate agent so you always know how your move and others in the chain is progressing.
When your offer is first accepted and your moving process starts, ask your solicitor for an estimate of when you will likely move, this doesn’t mean an exact date but a week in a month. They will know how long your buying and selling chain is and should be able to use their experience to estimate a time for you.
This will enable you to arrange for a local removal company to come round and survey your property to give you a quote for moving. At Ashingtons Removal & Storage, we understand you won’t have an exact date for your move at this point but we are happy to explain the different levels of service we offer and provide you with a quote. We will add your move to our worklist and when you have an exact date we will add you to our active move worklist.
Using a service like ours means we can be flexible with move dates as we have the scale with team members and moving vehicles to move dates if things change at the last minute. Using a man in a van type service won’t give you this flexibility and could mean you are let down at the last minute if there is sickness or a problem with their vehicle. We guarantee we will move you as we have a full packing and moving team that takes into account any team absence, or vehicle issues.
Ashington Removals & Storage Services
All our services include a free site survey to ensure we are able to offer you a competitive quote for each level of service and ensure we understand how long it will take our team to pack, load and unload your belongings.
Moving Service 1:
Our first moving service is where you pack all of your belongings in the weeks leading up to your move. Our team will come to your property on moving day and carefully load your boxes and furniture into our removal vehicles. They will safely transport them to your new home, wait for you to get the keys and then unload them ready for you to unpack. If you mark your boxes with the room you want them unloaded into in your new home then our team will do this for you meaning you don’t have to move boxes around to unpack them.
Moving Service 2:
Our second moving service includes all of the above, as well as our professional packing team coming into your home in the days leading up to your move day to carefully wrap and pack all of your belongings, saving you a huge amount of time and stress leading up to your move. Our packing team are really considerate and will be extremely careful and work around you in your home. If we can, we leave our packing to the day before you move but this does depend on how much stuff we need to pack. We will leave out all of your essential items, like the crockery you will need, bedding etc and pack these items on the morning of your move. This service means your lives arent disrupted in the weeks leading up to your move and your time taken up with wrapping and packing your belongings. Often people don’t realise how much stuff they have to pack and quite often end up packing boxes through the night in the few days before their move day, making it extremely stressful, tiring and time-consuming.
We offer a full or part packing service if you want to pack some of your belongings yourself.
Our moving service 2 removes the stress of packing and means you can carry on with your lives and jobs in the weeks leading up to your move and actually enjoy your move day. You also won’t need to live with boxes around your home and the frustration of not being able to find the things you need as they have already been packed.
Moving Service 3:
Our moving service 3 includes everything in moving service 2 as well as our team dismantling your furniture the days before you move, leaving your beds until your actual moving day. They will then load your furniture and boxes into our moving vehicles, take them to your new property and unload them into the rooms you have specified. Our experienced and professional moving team will then reassemble your furniture, removing this time-consuming job from you, allowing you to focus on settling in and unpacking your boxes.
This service makes the days before and the day of your move worry and stress-free removing the time it takes to dismantle and reassemble furniture.
Self Storage Services
Our self-storage solutions mean you can store belongings with us in the short or long term, knowing they are safe and dry and you will have easy access to them when you need them. Our storage facilities are purpose-built on our premises and the scale of our operation often means we are able to increase or decrease the size of your unit at short notice. If you are moving property and you need some items stored then we can take them to your storage unit as part of our removal service to you. Self-storage is a great way to settle in your home and decide what you want to keep or get rid of in the short term, or if you are moving to a smaller property it enables you to keep the items you want to.
