Booking your House Removals When Moving Home During The School Summer Holidays can help to make your move easier

We all know moving home with children in Nottinghamshire or Leicestershire in is not easy, fitting the move around school runs or keeping the kids entertained while the removal men are loading furniture from your home to the removal trucks, can be a lot to deal with for some people. The beauty of booking your house removals when moving home during the school summer holidays is that you will not need to have the worry of the school runs, morning or afternoon and the children can get  involved in the move and pack their own bedroom and toys, this will be something exciting for them and boy will they look forward to it.

With all the stress and excitement adults face when moving home, it can become easy to forget about how the little ones will cope with the change of house, bedroom, friends, schools and the move in general. Keeping the children informed and involved in the moving process will help them to come to terms with the changes and their new home environment. Provide them with their own storage boxes and challenge them to sort out their own items, you will be surprised at how organized they can be when given the chance.

House removals when moving home during the school summer holidays makes your life 10 times easier, as you will not need to leave the move unattended to pick up the toddlers from school, meaning you can delegate the move and movers to your satisfaction. The summer holidays will also give you the time required to settle in to your new home and unpack in your own time. We all know week ends can fly by really quickly and if you have tonnes of boxes and items to unpack the week-end might not be enough time. Moving during the summer holidays will ensure you have enough time to unpack your home belongings.

Tips for moving home with children during the school summer holidays

Sit down with the family and decide what each person wants for the new home. The kids may want a play room, while mum would like a fitted or walk in wardrobe, the point is what ever you require for your new home, try to plan them out with the family.

Take the children for the day out to meet the new house. See what attractions the new area has to offer. For example Nottingham City Centre is famous for its ice skating ring, while Leicester has a theatre that holds special shows for the kids and family. These outings will help to stable the children making them see the move and new home in a positive way.

If the new home requires some DIY, not only will the school holidays be one of the perfect times to get the jobs completed, but you’ll have helpful hands to help complete those jobs with you. Children love to decorate their own room, picking their own colors or wall paper and some times matching curtains and bed sheets.

When booking a house removal during the school summer holidays, children can get frustrated that they will not be able to see or spend the school summer holidays with their friends. Parents moving home will experience this at some point durning the move, especially for children from the age of 8 and above this can be a traumatic time. School Summer holidays are the times children have been waiting for, taking trips abroad with the family, relaxing with friends and exploring their community. Once this has been taken away they will need something to keep their mind occupied. Try to organize something for them to do once you have arrived at the new home, as they may get bored and agitated not being able to spend time with their friends during the summer periods.

All of these factors will need to be considered when your removal quote is given by your chosen house removal company, there are house removal companies out there who will provide a discount for customers taking out multiple removal services, that we called Mix and Match removals services.

The questions we all ask and want to know when moving home, how much is it to hire a professional house removal company

Having your home survey and showing your removal company every room and item you wish to move, is the best way to keep the cost down when moving home, so always be honest and be sure to show your moving company every thing.

When moving to your new home try to avoid moving companies that only charge by the hour as this may seem a good option to start with, but cost can go up, if hic ups are occurred on removal day. Try to find a moving company that doesn't charge for waiting times for keys or people in the chain and will provide you with a fixed price removal service, it is always better and piece of mind to know exactly what you have to pay your removals company at the end of your moving day.

How To Maximize Your Self Storage Space

Dismantle your furniture placing all screw and bolts in to a clear plastic bag, be sure to label the bag, so you know which screw are for what.
Use Other items like chest of draws to store clothes of other essentials, this will use the space in the draws allowing for more room to store your belongings and furniture.

Stack all boxes and furniture as high as possible, using the storage space to your advantage may include stacking right up to the ceiling. When stacking in this way it is vital all items are packed and secured properly in to boxes and or the correct packaging materials. Start with the most heaviest furniture first and then place the lighter furniture and items on top of each other. Removal blankets will be needed to cover items when place on top of each other.
Storing Electronic Equipment

When storing tv, fridges, microwaves, cookers etc, it is best to store them in their original packaging and boxes if possible. Before placing your items into the original packaging, it is best to further protect them using bubble before putting them into the boxes. Fill the gaps in the box with foam, bubble wrap or blankets to stop the equipment from moving around inside the box.

How To Get My Items In To Storage

There are many ways in which you can bring your items into storage, but this will depend on your needs and circumstances.

Many self storage companies will allocate a medium-sized van that customers needing storage can hire for the day, this will mean that you will need to organize friends or family to help you move your furniture into storage and may need to do multiple trips depending on the volume of furniture to stored.
The other option is hire a truck and doing the move yourself, this could take time and a lot of hard work, so you would need to leave plenty of room for time.
The other option is to hire a local house removals company, who will be able to dismantle, wrap, pack, box and load your entire home contents in to storage all within just a few hours, saving you time, money and physical hard work in the long run
How To Find Items & furniture Easily When In Self Storage

The best way to ensure you get at your belongings once stacked up is to set out a color coded system and label all items clearly. For example all items in the bathroom should have a pink label, bedroom 1, bedroom  2 and bedroom 3 should have their own colors, this is one way to understand which room each item belongs to. Label the boxes on all  sides, so you know what is inside the box. This will save you opening many boxes, just to find the 1 item.

How To Store My Best Clothing & Suits

For the bulk of your every day clothes, suit cases can work wonders, the keep your clothes neat, clean and tidy and also stop mold and moisture getting in. However black bin liners can also be used to store your older clothing. Storing clothes in black bin liners means you can store them in small gaps and use them to cushion awkward items. For your most expensive suits it is best to store them in wardrobe cartons with hanging rails. These can hold roughly 5 suits at a time and can take up more room in your self storage unit.

Things You Can Not Store into Self Storage

Food
Flammable liquids
Caustic
Combustible
Gas Tanks
All of the above contain oil, petrol and cleaning fluids and liquids which can be very hazardous when stored in self storage with tonnes of furniture, so these items and flammables are prohibited. If in doubt ask your self storage representative they will be happy to assist your exact needs and requirements.
