When the time comes to move home then you need to decide how you are going to move to your new home; are you going to do it yourself or are you going to bring in the N1 removal services?

If you are on a tight budget then you may want to try and handle the move yourself. That will involve sourcing the packing material, hiring a van and then the moving of all the boxes and items of furniture, which may take multiple trips. Making multiple trips may end up with you incurring extra charges for fuel. If you went to a removal company you have two options; have them come and do all the packing and moving everything or have them just do the moving. The size of your budget will have a bearing factor on what option you choose. By working out the costs of each option you will then have a starting point for making a decision on the best option for your budget.

Time & Distance
If you are moving to a new home that is a fair distance away from where you currently stay then you need to consider how quickly do you want or need to move. It may be you have a new job starting or your children are attending a new school, these have a date associated so you need to bear this in mind when planning your move. If you are doing the move by yourself you will only be authorised to hire a van up to a certain size and it may require multiple trips, this will add extra time on to your move. You will also need to ensure you have plenty of help on the day from people who can help you do the heavy lifting, at both side of the move. Getting in a N1 removal company will ensure that you are getting the right sized vehicle for the move; you will also get a number of people available who can do the lifting and laying.

Have you been involved in a home move before? It may seem that it will be simple, empty your current home and move everything to your new abode, if only! Lifting large and heavy items of furniture can be a tricky task, you don’t want to get it damaged and there may be narrow spaces to content with when getting items out or in of buildings. If you take the time to look at what you need to move and measure the sizes of large items and then the spaces you need to get them through then you will be prepared and be able to figure out how you are going to do it. Alternatively, going to a professional company will guarantee that the people coming to help you move will have dealt with a lot of eventualities and will have the knowledge and experience to move everything as smoothly as they possibly can.

Regardless of whether you are moving to N1 or WD25 you should make a list that compares a do it yourself move versus a removal services move. Take into account what your needs are and what you are expecting from the N1 move. It is all good well wanting to do it by yourself but sometimes paying a bit extra can save a lot more hassle in the long run.
