How to Move House at Short Notice
Congratulations – you’ve just signed the contracts to your new home. For many, this moment is a huge sigh of relief. However, not everyone has the ideal timeframe to get everything organised for the move. Sometimes it all goes ahead at the last minute, meaning you’re not left with much time to organise the move. If you’re in this situation, we’ve created a helpful guide on how to move house at short notice.
Find a comprehensive moving checklist
Instead of creating a moving plan from scratch, it can be worth finding a comprehensive moving guide online. We have a handy checklist that covers all the key things you need to do before moving. If you don’t have much time to spare, there are some steps you can skip, but a checklist like this helps bring clarity to your house move. It also means you won’t forget anything important.
Find a removal company that does it all
Instead of getting separate quotes for packaging materials, the removal service and a self-storage facility, it can be worth hunting down a company that offers all these essential removal services. This means you only have one point of contact and may even be able to get one comprehensive quote, rather than several.
Get a full packing and unpacking service
You can always hire a removal company to do the complete packing and unpacking, saving you lots of time on one of the more daunting moving tasks. You won’t have to dismantle anything or worry about packing all your belongings. You’ll just need to take care of your smaller valuables and private documents.
Redirect your mail
Notifying all your contacts of your new address can be time-consuming, but with the Royal Mail redirect service, you won’t have to worry about cramming this in before you move.
We hope this guide will help you make your short-notice move feel a little more manageable.
