The stresses and strains of moving house SE1 are numerous. You will be working hard to make sure that everything is taken care of and all goes well on the big day, which when combined with the enormous expenditure that will be outgoing, may well be a bit disheartening. There are many ways in which to save effort, time and even money while moving house that it is hard to know which are valid and efficient techniques, and which will put you at risk of things going wrong. You can rest assured that we have the best ways to make sure that you are not spending too much on your move, while keeping your move as sturdy and reliable as possible.

You will likely have given a bit of thought to the transportation of your items between houses, and it will likely have dawned on you that a SE1 removals company will be one of the biggest costs involved in the SE1 move. If this is the case, then you should look in to getting a man and van service. It may not be right for you, but if you can put in a little more effort in finding a few friends to help and a service with the right size van, then you will likely end up spending a lot less than with a full sized firm. You should obviously make sure that those who are helping you with lifting are strong and capable, as well as aware of the procedures of moving larger items of furniture, as the last thing you need is a load of injured friends who resent you for it! Offer a big meal at the new place, or a trip to the pub on you, and you should find that you have saved a considerable amount whilst also having a fair amount of fun in the process! With this in mind, friends and family are an amazing way to keep the move feeling personal and less business like whilst also saving you money, so if you are looking at hiring help, then give your friends and family a ring around to see if anyone wants to help out for a lesser fee.

Packing materials can cost you a fair bit, so see if you can source some second hand boxes and bubble wrap. Using recycled newspapers instead of bubble wrap is another good money saving tip, but be careful that the ink doesn’t get stains all over your more precious items! If you’re getting hold of second hand boxes, then make sure that you get a good look at them before you part with any money, as you will need to make sure that they are of a good quality, as well as being sturdy and not too battered. Broken in boxes will offer very little stability when stacked, as well as being of little protection when things fall on them, so make sure that your boxes have crisp edges and are still pretty strong when put together. Taping along every possible opening will increase stability, but you should not be using tape to make something of nothing when it comes to your item’s safety.

PLanning in advance will give you the time to keep yourself calm as well as the time to consider everything in minute detail, which means you will not be rushed in to spending money on things that you don’t necessarily need to. Taking time to consider things properly is almost as key as any other element of your move, so plan properly and things will be fine!
