Items you will find useful during a house move
There are a number of essential items you’ll find useful when you plan a house move, we know, we’ve acquired good knowledge in this area over the years at Pers Removals and we like to think we’re a fountain of knowledge on the subject.
Stock up on the basics prior to a house move and this makes things easier, we’d suggest keeping a supply of the following handy to make removal day a breeze.
Moving is so much easier when you have plenty of boxes to fall back on. Try to amass as many boxes as you can prior to the house move, you can buy them in bulk if needs be in readiness for the big day.
Got a pile of boxes ready for removal day? Well done you; how are you going to protect the items you place inside the box though? One suggestion is bubble wrap. This is useful for items like vases or anything that might be breakable, give it a layer of bubble wrap and it’ll be fine during transit.
Start to stockpile newspapers a couple of months before a house move. Instead of recycling the papers, keep them to one side and use them as protective barriers for delicate items, once you’ve unpacked your goods at your new house you can recycle the papers afterwards.
Sheets or rolls of brown paper are handy too. Wrap them and pack them around cups, plates or ornaments to give them a protective barrier, once they’re wrapped you can place them inside the boxes.
Parcel tape is useful for sealing down boxes or you could use sticky tape as a different alternative. Buy a couple of rolls at the very least, it’s amazing how much tape you get through when you start to seal large boxes of goods.
Keep a couple of marker pens handy when you are packing boxes. Once the boxes are filled, write down the room they are going in when they arrive at your new home, make life easier for your removal company!
Dig out old sheets or blankets prior to moving home, they’ll be useful for protecting items of furniture once they are placed in the back of the removal van. Take the cover off your duvet and use that as a protective, padded layer too. Prevent tables, televisions or freestanding furniture from getting scuffed or scratched.
Cobble the above items together and you are well on your way to being prepared for removal day.
What Our Clients Say
‘This is just to thank you and your team for the fantastic service during my move from Crouch End to Bexley. Everything was packed beautifully and the crew who moved me were fantastic, remaining friendly and good-humoured throughout. The piano was successfully moved from the first floor and everything arrived intact. It was really worth having the packing service as well, and my stress levels were kept well under control, so well done!’

‘Excellent company – gave me a really good price and fantastic service. We had the full packing service on the Monday, then they finished packing, and moved us on the Tuesday – on time and on schedule. Kav even had five guys on the job, on the Tuesday morning, which kept us on schedule. No breakages, everything was well packed: highly recommended.
We’ll be moving again in the next year, this time with a piano – we hope to use Pers Removals again!’

‘Three charming chaps arrived to move my piano from Maidenhead to West London. They took time to plan the moving process and communicated well with each other. They had several steps to cope with inside the house, and a few outside. I was expecting the piano to be bumped about – but not at all. Such care was taken – the piano could have been a newborn baby and would have come to no harm! Now that I have found Pers I will definitely use them again.’
