Packing it Properly – Our guide to Preparing for Your Moving Day

It doesn’t matter if you’re moving to a new house at the other side of Bath or you’re moving here from London. Relocating is stressful and often chaotic. If you don’t plan it out in detail, you might be doing some last-minute packing. Not to mention the cowboy removals company you had to book because you left it late. This is something you can avoid if you take control of your move early.

The first thing to do is book your relocation with Thomas Firbank. We’ll help you plan your move with some tips on breaking your relocation into manageable steps. One of the most important aspects of moving is packing your belongings. If you’re a dab-hand at packing, then you don’t need to worry. If like most people you aren’t, it’s better to leave it to our team of professionals.

How to Tackle Packing Up Before Your Move in Bath –

Before you start to pack, our first tip is to download home inventory app. You can find loads of them on Google Play; most are free or cheap. Just make sure you download the right one for your type of phone. Once you get the hang of how they work, home inventory apps are an excellent way to log all your possessions. You can save each item with an image, and then categorise them by room. You can also upload your list to save for future use or to send to your insurance provider.

If you’re doing your own packing, buy your packing materials early. And don’t skimp on the bubble wrap – it could prevent damage when your possessions are in transit. If possible, you can start packing a few weeks before your move, starting with things you don’t use every day. By the time if your move, you’ll nearly be fully packed and ready to go. Make sure you put your fragile items to the side and pack last, avoiding any bulky objects.

If you have a lot of valuable or fragile belongings, our advice is to leave the packing to the experts. The Thomas Firbank team are specialists in packing delicate objects, in addition to where to position each item in the moving van. Sometimes the actual packing materials can cause damage to paintings, which is why it’s best to let our team do the job for you.

Some Basics of Breaking Your Relocation Up into Stages –

One savvy insider piece of advice we can share will help you make every day count in the lead up to your big move. Once you have you set your moving day, work backwards to the current date to see the exact amount of days, weeks, and months in between. If you give yourself plenty of time, you can make preparing for your relocation easy.

Next, you need to start breaking everything up into smaller tasks. And you should aim to do at least two important tasks per week. Arrange your removals company as soon as possible, and only use a reliable company like Thomas Firbank. We will happily discuss your move and prepare a free no obligation quote.

It’s crucial that you discuss the details of your new property with the seller and estate agent. You need to make sure that the proper checks are available to go over in advance of you signing anything. Do your homework and read up on the different types of checks that apply to houses. Look for ones that go into detail on the house’s foundations and structure, as well as the electric and other piping.

Confirm moving dates with the seller and estate agent and make arrangements to collect the keys before you set off. And remember – even the best-laid plans can have issues.
