Moving day is the most important part of the removals process. With this in mind, Harradines go the extra mile to ensure that yours goes as smoothly as possible, calling on over 40 years of experience in the industry to make the whole experience as stress free as possible.
Depending on your preferences, the moving process will be split into two parts. Firstly, we’ll arrange with you a packing day, texting or emailing you the night before with the name and arrival time of the foreman in charge of your removals team. The uniformed crew will then set to work boxing up your possessions, carefully wrapping those delicate breakables, and dismantling any furniture. All boxes will be labelled and loaded into our vehicles, before being taken to secure storage for the night in anticipation of the move.
Moving day will be run by the same team, with any remaining items loaded into the vans and final checks carried out. After transporting your belongings to the new property at a previously agreed time, the team will then begin the unpacking and reassembly procedure, ensuring that all items are left in the correct rooms. We will then return after a few days to collect any boxes and packing materials that were borrowed.
As moving day can be a hectic time, here’s a list of key items to make sure you have to hand:
