5 House Removal Mistakes That Can Delay Your Move

House removals can be a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be. By avoiding these five common mistakes, you can minimise the chances of delays and ensure a smooth move.

Not Packing Properly

One of the most common mistakes people make when moving house is not packing properly. This includes using the wrong materials, not packing fragile items correctly, and not labelling boxes. Doing any of these things can result in damage to your belongings, which can cause delays while you wait for replacements.

Not Measuring Furniture

Another mistake that can delay your move is not measuring your furniture properly. This is particularly important if you’re planning on taking any large pieces of furniture with you. If you don’t measure them properly, they may not fit through the doorways or up the stairs at your new home, which could mean having to leave them behind or pay for additional storage.

Not Booking Early

If you leave booking your house removal until the last minute, you’re likely to run into delays. This is because most removal companies get booked up well in advance, so if you wait too long you may not be able to get the date or time that you want. It’s therefore important to book as early as possible to avoid any potential delays.

Using Cheap Packing Materials

Another mistake that can lead to delays is using cheap packing materials. This is because they’re more likely to break, which can result in damage to your belongings. If you use cheap materials, you may also find that they don’t protect your belongings as well, which could mean having to replace them if they get damaged in transit.

Not Hiring Professional Removalists

Trying to do everything yourself on moving day is a recipe for disaster. Not only will it be extremely stressful, but there’s also a good chance that something will go wrong. To avoid any potential problems, it’s worth hiring professional removalists who have the experience and expertise to get the job done quickly and efficiently.
