Is autumn indeed the best time of the year for a removal?
There are a huge number of variables surrounding a Pimlico home move. Finding the right house, finding a buyer for your old property, thinking about the various services you may want to hire to assist you with your move can combine with the hassle of handling the estate agents, the buying ladder and the solicitors and legal issues to create a tornado of things you have to consider when moving home. Thus, after trying to align all of these different factors, the time of year you move may become something you accommodate for considering everything else. Autumn can sometimes prove to not be the optimal time to move home, but with a few considerations you can easily make an autumn home move a resounding success. A few of these tips are listed below.
Firstly, it is absolutely vital that you dress appropriately for the SW1 home removal process. It is usually recommended that long sleeves and full length trousers are worn for moving, as moving boxes and familiarising yourself with a new home can often become a hazardous environment and result in blisters, burns or cuts. However, on most autumn days in the United Kingdom this is pretty much a given. It is also important to balance out what you are wearing. You will be spending a lot of time inside and outside and most likely going in between the two, so dressing to cater for both of these environments is important. Also, layers may be considered – people don’t consider how hard moving house can be physically, and you may want to take a layer off during the process of heavy lifting.
Beyond dress, it is important to consider the timing of your move. This consideration should include a number of factors. Firstly, in the autumn children are back at school, meaning traffic wise you will have to accommodate for both rush hour and the school rush. The last thing you want is a big hold up on moving day, especially when it is so potentially avoidable. It disrupts your flow and your plans and could impact you financially if your Pimlico removal company or SW1 man and van service charge an hourly rate or an overtime charge. One final thing to consider regarding traffic is the October half term, the kids are out of school and many working parents will take time off. This can make roads busier at odd times and generally make travelling an erratic and unpredictable process, so finding out the dates of this in your local educational authority is important, as you should try your best to avoid this. This goes doubly for a popular holiday or day visiting area such as central London.
Another thing to consider to make your autumn move a success is the weather forecast. We British spend half our waking lives talking and moaning about the weather, and autumn in the United Kingdom is notorious for rain and cold (well, as notorious as winter and spring are). Looking at the weather forecast is an important thing to consider, a rainy moving day not only dampens your clothes and possessions but also dampens spirit, which could lead to a rushed job that potentially damages or mistreats your possessions. Often flexibility isn’t available in your moving date with removal companies needing bookings weeks in advance and the nature of the housing market. However, if you have a moving window rather than just one day, looking at booking a man and van service who will need very little notice or tackling the move by yourself will let you choose the best day for you to complete the move.
