There are plenty of reasons why someone would move home or business, it may be they need to relocate for employment, downsize, upsize or to discharge equity. Whatever the circumstances, one thing is always the same and it is the fact you need to move your personal property to your new location. Unless you are relocating to, or from, a totally furnished property, flat or apartment, then you’re going to have to find a way to relocate your belongings to your new destination.
Top 10 List when you are thinking about or moving house:
1) Create a moving budget
When you are thinking about moving home there are so many things to think about and decide. It is seen as one of the most stressful things you can do in your life, so you need to be organised and clear about why you want to move, the area you want to move to and what are the most important things you want in your new home.
You need to understand the value of your current home with a couple of reliable Estate Agents in your area and this will help you decide how much you want to spend, and can afford on your new property. Going to see a mortgage advisor or your bank about this is the first thing you should do as you really don’t want to fall in love with a house, make an offer and then have problems getting a mortgage agreed.
When you have done this you can then calculate your moving budget, how much everything will cost and factor this into your finances. There are lots of moving cost calculators on the internet and these will help you estimate and create your budget. An example of some of the costs to include are listed below:
- Estate agent fees if you are selling your current home
- Conveyancing/Solicitor costs
- Stamp duty
- Removal costs
- Mortgage fees
- Valuation fees
- Surveyor fees
- Legal fees
- Deposit for your new home
- Electronic transfer fees
- Maintenance and repairs when you have moved, even if you aren’t renovating a property there will always be things that need doing that you didn’t see when you viewed the property or decorating costs, our advice is to factor all of these in. Your survey should have highlighted any problems that need fixing straight away, however, the average repair bill for new homeowners is £5,750.
2) Visit your new area
If you are moving to somewhere new and you are not familiar with it, visit it at different times of the day, walk around the area and look at specific areas that you may want to live in. If you are moving with children or are planning a family in the future then schools are a vital thing to consider. Look at the different primary and senior schools in the area and take a look at their Ofsted reports online. See if there is a local facebook page you can join and ask for recommendations. This is a perfect way of understanding first hand what people think of an area.
3) Use a reputable conveyancing solicitor
It is your conveyancing company that will handle all the legal aspects of your property transaction, so it is vital to make sure you have a professional conveyancer to make the process as easy and stress-free as possible. Look for recommendations and customer feedback about them and find out their specific costs before you proceed with them. Look for companies that are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority or the Council of Licensed Conveyancers. A good conveyancing company will help to make sure your move goes to plan.
4) Moving checklist and plan
Look for moving checklists on the internet and create your own, this will help you know when you should be doing what and ensure you don’t forget anything.
A moving checklist will help make sure the end to end process of moving runs smoothly, taking away the stress of forgetting something important that could hold things up.
With so many different things to do and people and companies involved with moving house things don’t always go to plan. You need to have a time plan but you also need to be prepared for this to change. If obstacles come up then go back to your moving plan and checklist and move dates around to see what the overall impact will be.
Give yourself plenty of time in your plan to ensure you are able to complete each item on your list. All of these activities should include follow-up calls and checks with solicitors and estate agents.
5) Have a clear out
You only want to take with you what you need. Go through each room and decide what you will sell, take to the charity shop and the tip and add this to your plan. Think about your new property and where your furniture will go in each room to ensure you don’t take too much as this will add to your removal costs. Start this process as soon as possible as it will give you time to get rid of any unwanted possessions and move into your new home with less clutter.
Starting early with your activities will make sure you don’t exhaust yourself trying to fit too many tasks into a short space of time and to the end of the process when things get busier. For a stress-free house move, plan and pace yourself, not leaving everything to the last minute.
6) Create a document file
Store all of your important documents, passports, house deeds, wills and insurance papers all in one file to ensure easy access. Include the estate agents details of your existing and new home and any letters you receive regarding your move so you always have easy access to it.
It is also a good idea to create electronic copies of important documents by scanning and saving them to a file where your partner, husband or wife also have access to them in case you are not available when information is needed.
7) Hire a professional removal company
When you are moving home you are placing all of your belongings in the hands of your removal company, so it is important you use a professional and experienced removal company. Get a couple of quotes and ask them about the different packages and services they offer so you can decide which one suits you and your budget best. Ask them what will happen if your moving date gets changed and make sure they visit your property so they are aware of how much stuff will need to be moved. A professional removal company like Ashington’s Removal and Storage will also be able to provide a packing service, which will save you both time and energy in the lead-up to your move day.
Hiring a reputable and professional removal company will ensure you can relax and let them get on with what they are best at, enabling you to focus on enjoying your new property.
8) Pack a moving day survival kit
Always pack a removal day survival kit for your move day, include essentials such as toiletries, phone chargers, bottles of water, snacks, kettle, mugs, tea, and coffee. This will mean when you get the keys to your new property you can click on the kettle and watch whilst your boxes are moved in by your removal company. Make of list of these items in the weeks leading up to your move as you will always think of items you will need as you are going about your day-to-day life.
9) Treat yourself
Preparing for a house move with so many tasks and people to liaise with can sometimes feel there is no time for you to relax. Having your plan with dates and schedules included will help with this and make sure you aren’t worried about forgetting something. Make sure you get enough rest and downtime through the process and plan evenings off with friends and family to make sure you have time to relax.
10) Moving day
When you get the keys to your new home don’t try to unpack everything in one day, give yourself chance to relax and take stock after an extremely busy time in your life. Unpack your essential items first and leave unpacking those nonessentials for the weeks after you have moved. You never know you might decide these are not needed and you can have an even clearer new home.
You will have a couple of choices when moving home, one being that you carry out the removal on your own using the resources you have got, packing your belongings up in the weeks leading up to your move, along with transferring them and loading them into your car to transfer them on the day. Your second choice is to let a trustworthy and skilled removals company like Ashington Removals & Storage relocate your belongings for you.

Ashington Removals & Storage has a fleet of vehicles which have the capacity to hold small to large moves whether it is a flat, house or business move. This will save you a huge amount of time on the day making so many trips back and forth to your new property loading and unloading.
The solutions offered from Ashington Removals & Storage mean you don’t have to go through the time-consuming packing operation, as well as the moving process, as our professional packers and vehicle operators can take care of that on your behalf. This is particularly handy if your house purchase is in a chain. When you’re in a chain you are likely to have to leave your own home by a particular time and normally your brand-new home is unavailable to move into for several hours. Using Ashington Removals & Storage services will mean that all of your personal belongings are packed in one or two vehicles and will be clear of your property before you need to be. Your personal belongings are transported and parked outside your new property right up until you have access to it.
There are different solutions when you are moving home or business and these include:
Option 1: Do everything yourself, packing in the weeks leading up to your move, dismantling furniture, loading and driving your own vehicle to your new home or property. In this instance, you need to be very organised and have enough spare time in the weeks prior to your move to make sure all of this is done. If you have a car then you would need to make so many journeys to move your belongings. If you are in a ‘buying chain’ then this would not be possible as you have to be out of your home at a certain time and you don’t often don’t get the keys to your new place straight away as the money transfers in the chain take a long time.
Option 2: Pack all of your belongings and dismantle all of your furniture yourself in the lead-up to your move, and then use a reliable and reputable removals company like Ashington’s to load your possessions, drive to your new property, wait outside whilst you get the keys and then unload everything into your new home. Utilising Ashington Removals and Storage professional services means that all of your personal belongings are loaded into one or two lorries and are clear of your house before you need to be. Your property is then stationed outside your brand new property with our team until you have access to it.
Option 3: Use a removal company like Ashington’s to come in the day before you move and carefully wrap and pack all of your belongings. They then come back the next day to load everything into one of their vehicles, drive to your new place, wait outside until you get the keys and then unload. This option takes the stress out of moving in the weeks leading up to it as you don’t have to worry about having the time to wrap and pack everything and not have the things that you need at certain times as they are already packed.
Option 4: All of the above, but in addition to this, Ashington’s would dismantle your furniture the day before you move, leaving your beds and bedding for you to use the night before. We would come in on the day of your move to dismantle the final bits, load up and then when you get to your new property we would unload and put all of your furniture back together ready for you to unpack your boxes. This is the full removal service and really makes the weeks leading up to and the day of your move stress-free.
