Before you even think about moving there are a few vital first steps to take. You’ll need to confirm your mortgage with your lender, instruct a conveyancer to carry out the legal work and commission a survey (if you need one) on your new home.
Decide on a moving date (usually the completion date) as soon as contracts have been exchanged. If possible avoid Fridays and bank holidays when removal firms are in high demand and will be stretched (and may charge more). If you can take the time off, opt for off-peak times such as mid-week for a less stressful move.
Call in the professionals. Ask friends or relatives who have moved recently to recommend removal firms. Failing that, the British Association of Removers or the National Guild of Removers and Storers will be able to supply names of approved members in your area. They operate within the terms of a code of practice and offer an independent conciliation and arbitration service in case of complaint. Find out more information on how to choose a removal company
