Travel Advice For Moving

< All Topics


Whether you’re moving to a new country or just moving across the street, we’ve got all the travel advice for moving you need.


Moving in winter?

If you’re moving house in winter, you’ll want to make sure your car is prepared for potentially icy conditions on the road. You should also take care with belongings that could become damaged by the cold.


Moving With Children?

When travelling to your new home with children in tow, you’ll want to make sure they’re kept entertained, especially if the journey is a long one. Whether they enjoy reading, watching films or playing a classic game of ‘I spy’, there are plenty of distractions that will keep them from asking ‘are we nearly there yet?’


Moving Abroad?

It’s one thing moving to a new town, but moving abroad is an entirely different kettle of fish. If you’re relocating from the UK to Europe, there will be a lot more travel preparation required. From sorting out visas to ensuring you’ve checked importing restrictions, many overseas removal companies can help with your paperwork and ensure you’re not caught out at the border. You’ll also need to update your essential addresses.


Moving With Pets?

Don’t forget, if you’re moving abroad, you may need to apply for a pet passport. Also, some countries impose an import ban on certain animals or breeds, so you should check in advance to avoid complications. The last thing you’ll want is to be told your beloved pet can’t join you in your new home.


Moving without a car?

If you’re moving house without access to your own vehicle, there will be a little more planning involved. You may want to book a taxi, ask a friend or relative for help, or research your public transport options. However, when it comes to moving your belongings, you should hire a removal company to make your moving day much easier.


One thing to bear in mind is that removal companies usually advise that you handle smaller, high-value items such as collectors coins…


Moving with a removal company?

Even if you have access to a van, it’s worth hiring a removal company. Why? They are specially trained to handle and transport your belongings and can take a lot of the stress off your shoulders. Instead of taking many trips back and forth between your current and new abode and doing a lot of the heavy lifting, you can sit back and let a professional team do this for you.
