Our removals and storage solution

Moving house? How our removals and storage solution can help you

It’s no surprise that moving house is up there with the most stressful experiences a person can go through. What with the many expensive fees to pay, waiting months for loose ends to be tied up and then the eventual task of getting all your belongings out in time for moving day, it can turn the calmest person into a nervous wreck… but it doesn’t have to be like this! 

In this article, we outline the ways you can prepare yourself for moving house and how our removals and storage solution can help when it comes to the ‘big day’. 

Top tips from Hogleaze for moving house

So you’ve found your new home and had your offer accepted, the first hurdle is out of the way, if you are lucky enough that the chain is now complete, you can start the moving process and get in touch with your solicitor. 

Get all your paperwork in one place 

You’re going to need to supply a lot of paperwork to your estate agents, bank and solicitors proving you can afford your new home. And whilst filing isn’t at the top of everyone’s priority list, it really will save you time down the line. Ensuring you have bank statements, payslips, utility bills, guarantees, building regulations, planning consents and financial documents ready to go will ease the pressure and speed things up!

Have a clear-out 

Once everyone has the paperwork they need, most of the jobs are now left to the professionals, and in theory, you can sit back and wait for it to all go through. However, this is the time you can start preparing for the move by clearing out what you don’t need, this way when it comes to packing you won’t spend hours going through what needs to be thrown out. Even the tidiest people will hoard some unwanted belongings, and you may even be able to make some cash by selling them. Don’t forget, have you checked what’s in your loft or garden shed? 

Start packing early 

Completion day can come around quite quickly, and sometimes the time between exchange and moving day is less than a week, so even if you’ve waited 3 months for everything to come together, don’t leave packing till the last minute. 

Firstly, make sure you have all the packing materials, this should include sturdy boxes and plenty of tape and bubble wrap. Start with the items you aren’t going to need, such as ornaments and books and take a trip into your loft and see what’s hiding behind the cobwebs! 

Don’t forget your trusty permanent marker and label all your boxes clearly with the contents and what room they are for.  

Arrange help if it’s required 

This is when we come in, getting your belongings out of your house, and into your new house all in one day is a big ask, so have you considered storing some of your belongings whilst you sort out your new house? Keep on reading to learn about our removals and storage solution…

I really like the facility and I am very impressed with the setup you have.

It was lovely to meet you last Friday and finally get the Caravan in to secure storage. I really like the facility and I am very impressed with the setup you have. I received your welcome letter yesterday and have set up the standing order for the 1st July and then to continue at the begin of each month thereafter.

Thank you once again.

I would recommend Hogleaze Storage to anyone thinking of storing their possessions

It has been a most enjoyable experience entrusting Hogleaze Storage Ltd with my furniture, household and personal possessions, since August 2012.

It was good to meet Shelley, her helpful and friendly demeanor, nothing was too much – she even brought along bolt cutters in case I could not open the padlock on the shutter doors. She was happy to show Gentleman Removals and myself the way.

The service has been excellent throughout the seven years, with up-to-date monthly invoices and security information – thoughtful and caring – all my possessions including the ones I did not know I had stored in the unit, were intact and working.

I would recommend Hogleaze Storage Ltd to anyone thinking of storing their household, office and personal possessions, whether short or long-term. The location is worth a visit on its own, the site is safe and secure, clean and accessible 24/7.
