When you’re moving a long distance across the UK, whether it’s for a new job, to be closer to family, or simply to enjoy new surroundings, there’s more to consider than with a regular move. That said, there are many things you can do to make the big move as stress-free as possible.
The best time to move across the UK
Wherever possible, you should look to move long distances in the summer. If you have children, this prevents disruption to school, and allows them to settle in before starting somewhere new.
Plus, having more daylight hours will mean you can get more done each day. And there’s less chance of having to carry boxes through wind, rain and snow!
Choosing a removals company
If you’re moving long distances, it’s best to pick a removals company that has branches at both your old and new address. Their local knowledge will ensure the best traffic routes are taken and the crew will be able to handle any unforeseen circumstances quickly and efficiently. After the move, the local team will be able to collect any leftover packing materials and take any items for storage to their nearby storage facility.
