Even with plenty of forewarning, moving house can seem daunting, so when there’s little advance notice and it all needs to be done yesterday, the stress can seem intolerable. With so much to do and so little time, it can seem as if there just aren’t enough hours in the day. Last-minute moving wouldn’t be everyone’s first choice, but sometimes it’s simply unavoidable. Circumstances, whatever they may be, can conspire to throw us challenges we’d much rather have done without, but we have to rise to them the best we can nevertheless. If you’re faced with the task of a last-minute move, then don’t panic. At Ward Thomas, we’ve done them countless times, both in London and beyond, and we know that haste doesn’t have to mean hurry or hysteria. Our experience has given us years of insight into how best to handle fast moves that don’t have the benefit of months of pre-planning. What’s more, we can make them stress-free.

Unforeseeable live events, relationship breakups, job changes, forgetfulness – whatever the cause of your last-minute move, there are ways to mitigate the tension and anxiety.

  • Get your boxes, tape and bubblewrap as quickly as possible, looking for same-day delivery options, unless you can get them in person locally. If there isn’t time to book a packing service, think about which corners you can cut to save time; perhaps you can do without labelling boxes if you’re moving between small properties like studios.
  • Don’t make the mistake of booking the first removal company whose details you find online. Just because you’re moving in haste, it doesn’t mean you should take any chances with your precious possessions. Look for reputable firms that offer last-minute moves.
  • Don’t stand on ceremony with friends and family; now’s the time to ask for their help, without flinching or embarrassment. Sometimes we forget that many people actually enjoy helping and supporting their loved ones, colleagues, neighbours and friends. Extra pairs of hands and extra vehicles can make the process a lot easier. If there isn’t time to ask people one by one, then post a shout-out SOS on social med
