Last-Minute Removals & Making a Moving Checklist

For anyone who’s planning on moving in London or to another area, it always helps to put plenty of work into the planning stages. Unfortunately, sometimes things go wrong that are beyond our control and you might need a last-minute relocation. There is a multitude of reasons for emergency removals, such as an Ill relative or your original removals company cancel on you. At Anthony Ward Thomas, will do everything possible to provide a last-minute removal in London.

Even though you’re quickly organising an emergency relocation, it’s still vital that you create and use a moving checklist. A moving checklist helps to map everything out and keep on track as you complete each task leading up to the moving day. It will also make it much easier to see any outstanding points that require immediate action. Anthony Ward Thomas has a range of suitable removals and related services, and our Packing service could be beneficial in this situation.

Moving in a Week Checklist in London –

Your initial response to a last-minute removal would be to panic and start ploughing into each room and stuffing things indiscriminately into boxes. This isn’t a good idea and could cause you to break items, and you’ll end up with no idea what things are in each box. Our advice is to take your time and start by creating a moving checklist – you can use ours as a template.

Next, you should download a home inventory app and log everything via the instructions when you open it. Most home inventory apps are free or very cheap, and you’ll be able to save everything with images. Rather than undertaking the packing yourself, you can get our team to do it for you. We have a dedicated Packing service which will save you a lot of time.

Now it’s time to rope in as many people into your emergency relocation as possible. You need to get every member of the family to go online to research a new location. Try and organise a quick trip out there if it’s within an hour’s drive or journey. Ask everyone to make list of everything worth noting about the new area or that might help other parts of the relocation process.

You’ll also need to contact your current utility providers and council with moving dates and meter readings. The last thing you want is to receive a council tax bill or a gas invoice months after you leave your house. Ensure any payments are paid and you’re able to access your new house when you arrive.

Useful Moving Tips for All Removals in London –

Even if time is against you, try and get rid of furniture, appliances and other items you rarely or never use anymore. You will have enough time to sell things on eBay if you’re quick. Otherwise, you’ll need to give the rest away to an upcycling organisation or local charity shops. Do this first to create as much space as possible before you start logging and packing things into boxes.

It goes without saying that you should only consider booking with a reputable and reliable company like Anthony Ward Thomas. That’s due to our superior quality of service and standards.
