It may not quite
feel like it yet, but we’re quickly moving towards Spring. At the end of the
month the clocks will go forward (which means we lose an hour’s sleep, sorry…).
But the bonus of that is lighter evenings and a feeling that Summer is well and
truly on its way. If we get one this year.
traditionally the busiest period for us as a removals company.
People often want to get winter out of the way before thinking about the next
big thing. And, of course, properties tend to look a bit nicer against a bright
blue sky and with light and airy rooms – as well as gardens springing into
life. Who wants a load of viewers trekking mud through your home every time
someone wants to take a look round?
So, if you’ve
decided that now is the time to get thinking about your next move, then what
steps do you need to be taking?
ahead on the Spring cleaning and DIY – to get the best price for your property, you’re going to need to get
it looking its best. Time to catch up on those DIY jobs and to do that deep
clean you’ve been putting off.
Declutter – having less stuff on display will
automatically make your home look more spacious and roomy. That’s where self storage
comes in! It’s a great way of temporarily getting rid of some items and any
excess furniture but keeping it safe ready for when you move into your new
home. We have secure storage centres in Leeds, Harrogate
(and soon to open in York) and you can choose from a range of storage unit
sizes to find the one that suits your needs. All of our self storage centres
have ample free parking, lifts and equipment such as trolleys so you can unload
and transport your belongings easily. And you can come and go as you please,
meaning if you realise you’ve stored something you need, it’s not a problem to
retrieve it. Ask about our shredding service
too if you have paperwork you need to get rid of, but you don’t want to risk it
being used for identity fraud.
the dream team – ask around
for recommendations of estate agents and solicitors and check out online
reviews to find the ones which you feel are best for you.
ready to move – once the sold
sign is in place, it’s time to line up a removals company.
At McCarthy’s we can offer three ways to give you a quote – we have a quick
online quote service, but to give a more detailed quote we’d need to
come and see you or do a video estimation. We need to see what will need moving
and talk about things such as access and parking, and it also gives you the
opportunity to ask any questions.
up – our removals teams can
also offer a packing service. It’s fast, efficient and safe – our experts have
decades of removals experience between them, so they know how to pack items as
securely as possible. If you’re packing yourself we can help with all the
boxes, tape and bubble wrap you might need in our packaging shops!
day – let the removals team do
all the hard work, but make sure you’ve clearly labelled what’s in all the
boxes and where they need to go in the new house. Make sure you’ve taken meter
readings, organised a postal redirection and have let everyone know your new contact
details. Make sure you’ve considered how best to move
any pets and take a box of essentials with you in your own vehicle.
This will make it easier at the other end – so include things like kettle, tea
and coffee, medicines, toilet roll, pet or baby food, handwash, torches, small
toolkit, phone chargers etc.
and enjoy your new home!
