Top Tips for a Smooth House Move with C&D Removals in Sheffield

Moving to a new house is an exciting adventure, and with C&D Removals by your side, the process becomes even smoother. Based in Sheffield, C&D Removals offers professional and reliable moving services to help make your relocation stress-free. Here are some top tips to ensure a successful move:

1. Plan Ahead for Appliances

If you have kitchen appliances like fridges, freezers, or washing machines, ensure they are drained and dried before the move. Remember to defrost your fridge and freezer at least a day before the moving day.

2. Garden Tools and Equipment

Clean and drain any petrol-driven equipment, such as lawnmowers or trimmers, well before the move.

3. Arrange for Evening Meal

Make arrangements for your evening meal in advance of your move. With all the commotion, you don't want to be worrying about cooking. Consider ordering a takeaway or preparing a simple meal that requires minimal cooking.

4. Plan for Painting and Carpet Fitting

If possible, complete any necessary painting and carpet fitting in advance. It's much easier to have these tasks done before you move your belongings into the new house.

5. Remove Lamp Shades

Before the move, remove all lamp shades to ensure they don't get damaged during transit.

6. Dismantle Beds

Most beds need to be dismantled before they can be moved. Plan ahead and make necessary arrangements for dismantling and reassembling the beds.

7. Organize Elevator and Parking

If you require the use of an elevator or if parking spaces are limited, make sure to organize these in advance. Coordinate with your building management or neighbors to secure necessary access and parking arrangements.

8. Disassemble Flat Pack Furniture

If you have self-assembly furniture, it's best to have it dismantled before the move. Arrange for someone to reassemble it at your new home to save time and effort.

9. Consider Your Plants

Delicate plants may be affected by dust or paint fumes during the move. Consider leaving them with a friend or neighbor until you are settled in your new home.

10. Handle Administrative Matters

Ensure you have read your utility meters before leaving your old home. Make the necessary arrangements with utility and telephone companies for the transfer of services. Notify them of your move and provide them with your new address.

11. Pack Essential Items

Keep all essential items, such as credit cards, keys, wallets, and mobile phones, together in a suitable box for easy access on the moving day.

12. Keep Medication Separate

If anyone in your household requires regular medication or has specific medical needs, keep their medication safely aside and easily accessible. Dusty conditions during the move may not be suitable for storing medications.

13. Ensure Your Old House is Secured

If your old house will be left empty for a period, make sure to turn off all utilities and pass the keys on to the estate agent or new owner.

14. Cancel Scheduled Deliveries

Remember to cancel any scheduled deliveries to your old house, such as milk or newspaper subscriptions.

15. Arrange Television Supply Transfer

If you have satellite or cable television services, make arrangements to transfer these services to your new home.

16. Ensure Good Access to Your Premises

To facilitate a smooth move, ensure good access to your premises. Speak to your neighbors and clear parking spaces or walkways, ensuring unobstructed movement for the removals team.
