Try this handy relocation checklist
There’ so much to organise when you move home and as removal day approaches your head is going to be in a spin. The days will fly by so try to stay sane by checking items off your relocation checklist, if you haven’t created one yet use this one for free.
Six weeks to go
Action Tick Date
Confirm the day of the move
Give notice to your landlord
Get quotes from removal companies
Tell pals and see if they are free to help
Arrange storage solutions if necessary
Notify utility companies
Start to de-clutter
Order furniture for the new home
Start to accumulate packing materials
Okay that’s the six week checklist done, now let’s move things forward slightly and cover the two weeks before the house move.
Two weeks to go
Action Tick Date
Start to pack non-essential items
Send change of address cards
Notify bank/ credit card companies
Deregister from doctor’s surgery/dental practice
Arrange to have post forwarded
Go through exact details with your removal company
Contact service providers
Notify insurance companies
By this stage you should pretty much have all the basics covered and be ready to start packing properly on the final week prior to the house move. Or if you have taken the stress-free option you can leave all the packing to your removal company and simply start looking forward to your house move.
One last piece of advice we’d give you is to plan the day of the move with military precision. Plan the journey to your new property, ask somebody to look after pets or small children on the day, pack refreshments and keep an ‘essentials’ box close by filled with tea, coffee, cups and the kettle. You’ll be dying for a brew when you reach your new home!
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.’
