Last minute tips for the night before your move
There’ll be a range of emotions running through your head on the final night in your old house. Whether you have lived in the house for years, or simply been renting for a few months, you’ll have plenty of happy memories and the thought of moving will be exciting but touched with a tinge of sadness as well.
To keep yourself busy and take your mind of what is going to be a hectic removal day, do this to prevent yourself dwelling on the house move for too long.
Unplug the freezer
Moving home gives you the opportunity to defrost your freezer. Unplug the appliance 24 hours before you move home to let it defrost, and don’t forget to let the freezer settle for a while before you plug it in at your new property. A good tip is to try to use up all the items you have stored inside your freezer in the weeks prior to removal day. This will prevent any unwanted waste.
Check the packing list
Go through your packing list the night before you move. This gives you a good opportunity to double-check on items. It also ensures you don’t miss any important valuables. Make sure you know where everything is, include everything you can physically pack and only leave out essential items you can’t pack until the morning of the move.
Clean and tidy where you can
There’ll be certain areas of the home you can’t physically clean until moving out day. That shouldn’t prevent you from cleaning accessible areas such as spare rooms though. Give them the once-over the night before and it’ll save you time when the big day finally arrives. Trust us. You’ll appreciate all the spare minutes you can muster come removal day.
Leave clothes out for the next day
Most clothing items can be packed away 24 hours before you start to move house. Just leave out nightwear and the clothing you want to wear the next day. We suggest you choose comfortable clothing for the day of the move, garments you don’t mind getting dirty or dusty.
Make final preparations on the night before the move and there might be just enough time for a cheeky glass of wine or a mug of chocolate before you hit the hay nice and early.
Now there’s a nice thought!
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.’
