A week before moving to Wimbledon is when the reality of moving house begins to take hold. Hopefully, you will have spent a good deal of the previous months planning and organising everything which leads up to the move and now have only to put everything in motion. This is the point where all of your possessions seem to dwindle, as they are steadily packed away into a series of boxes. But due to the nature of this week, it is easy to overlook certain things due to all the excitement. Below is a list of considerations which can slip by the wayside. Read through and ensure that your trip is as well organised as possible.
The excitement of a Wimbledon man and a van can coming to collect all of your possessions in order to move them to your new house can be quite a distracting excitement. As such, the realities and boring aspects of moving house can often be forgotten. Before the man in a van comes to help you out, make sure you have notified the utilities companies of your situation. It may be that they need to take final meter readings, that they are able to switch your account to the new premises or that they merely need to cancel the account altogether. Whichever option is true for you, be sure to remember not to leave the calls to the last minute.
A week before moving to Wimbledon, it may be worth checking with your chosen man and van to ensure that you both have the correct time and details for the move. Whilst this will likely be an entirely cautionary phone call, and everything will likely be in place, it does bear doing rather than getting to the day only to find that there has been a calamitous mix up. Dropping your man with a van an email, text or phone call will help with the organisational process and make sure that everything is good to go.
Given that there is a week left until you move, now might be a good time to consider packing away the less essential items. Moving to Wimbledon, the man in the van will arrive promptly on the day to whisk your possessions to the new location. Having taken the time to ensure that everything is packed and ready beforehand will allow you to save time and stress before the big day. Also, take the time to notify your man in a van of any particularly large or specialist items. It helps to be entirely up front and organised when dealing with difficult items and a good head’s up is always appreciated. It will also allow you to plan how you might move these items, and maybe even share in the expertise of the man in a van, should he be able to dispense advice on the matter.
By now, you should have a great idea of what needs to be done before moving day. If you have not already formalised this list and written everything down, now is the perfect moment to construct your moving list. A moving list is a thorough document detailing the intricacies involved in moving to Wimbledon. Having this list to hand now and in the coming week will help you maintain a hold on the moving process, and you can even share it with your man and a van in order to ensure that any problems or issues are met head on and a solution can be found at an early stage.
