IF WE ARE PACKING FOR YOU
Before we arrive to commence packing:
- Set aside an overnight bag for all members of the family containing all the clothes, favourite cuddly toys, toiletries etc. that you need for the night. Keep the bags to one side, we suggest to put these on top of the beds as we do not pack the beds/bedding until the morning of the move).
- Keep aside anything from the kitchen / elsewhere you require for the night and morning – usually things like cleaning products, cereal for the morning, a set of cutlery and crockery (although most people get a takeaway for the night for ease). We suggest to put these items on the dining table.
- Put aside any important documents and electronics etc. if you need them or don’t want them packed – I.e. documents for the house, passports, laptops etc. We suggest to keep these on you, or in your overnight bags.
- Have a think if there’s anything from a certain room that will be going into a different room in the new house, so you can let us know on arrival on the pack day.
- You do not need to do the above for large furniture, as we will ask you where you’d like the items when we are unloading. This is just useful for contents that we are packing.
Other things to note:
- We won’t pack your beds / bedding on the pack day – we will do this on the morning of your move (so you have somewhere to sleep for the night).
- We usually don’t pack your main TV, Sky etc. until the morning of the move, so you have a TV to watch for the evening.
- If we are moving your fridge/freezer – the freezer contents can remain, however the fridge must be emptied (we will pack these last things on the moving day and not on the pack day). We do also suggest to try and ‘eat your way’ through the contents as much as possible before the move to make things easier when moving. If your fridge/freezer is not being moved, we will pack the contents of both, on the moving day.
- We will take a walk round with you when we arrive on the packing day, before we start packing, so that you and the team are both happy that everyone knows what is and isn’t to be packed.
- You don’t have to stay in all day on the packing day, once we have walked round with you and everyone is happy with regards to what is/isn’t to be packed.
