If you have a big move coming up, at Pers Removals, we’ve put together a failsafe moving timeline for your upcoming move. We believe that in order to have a successful and stress-free move, you should start preparing at least 8 weeks in advance. This will eliminate a lot of stress and worry as you’ll be prepared and organised.
8 Weeks Before The Move
8 weeks before your move is all about organization. Start off by obtaining a folder or ringbinder that you can use to keep all your moving related information and paperwork in. This means that you won’t need to search through boxes when you’re right in the middle of the move and can’t find that all-important document. This is also the best time to start conducting research on available moving companies in your area. You should also start thinking about items you want to get rid of.
7 Weeks Before The Move
At this point, you should begin sourcing packing material such as boxes, tape, markers and bubble wrap. There are a number of online resources and moving companies that can provide you with moving resources. You should also know exactly what you want to keep and get rid of, so could plan a garage sale or drop things off at your local charity shop.
6 Weeks Before The Move
Now is the time to notify schools, doctor surgeries and utility providers of your new address. You should feel confident at this point and have everything under control.
5 Weeks Before The Move
It’s at around the 5 week mark that you should be ready to book a moving company. To find out more about how we can help you, get in touch with us at Pers Removals.
4 Weeks Before The Move
You should now begin packing non-essential items such as things you won’t need access to right away. Things like toothbrushes, important paperwork and day-to-day items shouldn’t be packed away at this point. Always remember to label boxes to save confusion later down the line.
3 Weeks Before The Move
Figure out what food you have left and try and use it up so it doesn’t go to waste. You want to try and have nothing left in your freezer or cupboards by the time it comes to moving day. At this stage, you should also make arrangements for pets and plants. Do they need to go somewhere while you conduct the move?
2 Weeks Before The Move
Pack, pack, pack! Moving day is not far away and will sneak up on you in no time, so you must pack as much as possible since you only have 2 weeks to go.
1 Week Before The Move
Pack a suitcase with the things you will need quick and easy access to while the move is underway. Chances are, you won’t be able to get to a lot of your items that have been packed away in boxes and bags.
Work with your chosen movers to help them conduct the move as smoothly as possible. Do a quick sweep of your home and head off to your new place to unpack.
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.’
