Firstly, it’s not advisable to go through a house move in such a short space of time unless it’s totally necessary. Sometimes your hands can be tied. Work commitments, or if something unexpected comes up which means you’ve got to vacate your premises and move into new digs at the drop of a hat, could mean a hasty house removal. If this is the case, don’t worry. Moving house in less than a week can be done. We’re not going to lie, it will be tricky. But it can be done. Adhere to certain principals and you’ll be able to get everything in order in no time at all. Without much further ado, here are some top tips: how to organise the home removals process in less than a week.
Create a plan of action
If you are moving at short notice, you need to create a plan of action. You can’t approach things haphazardly. You don’t have time for any slipups. You need a structured approach to the move. So, create a plan or action, what you’re going to achieve on a daily basis, then achieve it. It’s best if you write this down. Whether you print it out or write it on post-it notes and stick it around the house, that’s your call. It’s best you stick them where you’re going to see them. The bedroom is a good idea. If it’s the first thing you see when you wake up and the last thing you see before going to bed, you’re more likely to accomplish your goals.
Hire a removal company
This should be one of the first things you do on your to-do list. There are tonnes of removal companies out there. Although you’re short of time, you still need to do your research. You’ll still want to find a top moving company at a decent price, one that’s available to carry out your move at short notice. It’s also worth considering how big your move it going to be. You could hire such a company, but on the other hand, you might want to consider hiring a man with a van. Also, think about what kind of moving services you want. Sure, you want the bog-standard services that help you out on moving day. But movers can also do plenty of other things. Since you’re moving in such a short period of time, it may be worth asking the company to help you out with other services. It might cost more, but this way you can kill two birds with one stone. There’ll be less for you to take care of.
You can hire someone to help you with this. If you have a support network, get your friends involved. The packing stage will take a lot of time. Do it systematically. Figure out how you’re going to transport the larger items first. Then go from room to room packing the smaller items. Pack quickly but thoroughly too. You want things to be packed and prepared, but at the same time you don’t want any breakages.
Last minute activities
You’ve had a hectic few days. Now it’s the final stretch. Walk around your house and ensure everything’s prepared, ready for moving day. Then do all that last-minute stuff. Clean, take apart furniture, get an essentials box ready. Then it’s just a case of turning off the lights and hopefully, you can leave the rest in the capable hands of the moving company you booked with.
