  • Be Specific with what you want from your remover. Make a list of any dismantling or fixed items that you need assistance with. Everything is possible but planning is essential so that the timing of your move stays on track
  • Collate your garden and garage items into one area where possible to make identification easier for the men. Please do not water plants on the move day!
  • Try to run down your food stocks in the run up to your move. When did you last empty / defrost your freezer
  • Keep aside personal clothes / items you will need on the day. Let the team leader know what is to be left off the lorry
  • Remember if you are doing the packing it must be done the night before we come. Keep out enough refreshments for your family and helpers.
