Planning your move

Luxfords Moving Tips

Contact us for a quotation about a month before your expected move date so we can plan your move with you. Remember to discuss access and parking arrangements for your current and new properties.

Decide what you want to take. Some items like fine art, antiques, plants or wine collections may need specialist attention and you should discuss this at the time of your survey.

Your mover is not allowed to tamper with mains services so make arrangements with your gas/electricity companies well in advance. This also includes light fittings.

Run your freezer down. Whilst every care is taken, your mover is not responsible for any deterioration of the contents.

Try to arrange to have young children and pets looked after by a friend or neighbour while the move is taking place. Older children will enjoy the excitement of moving and should be included in the process as much as possible.

Your mover will take down curtains and lift carpets if these services have been agreed. They will not, however, fit them again in your new home.

Give your mover a map or clear directions to your new home.

Take out insurance on your move.
