How to Move Your Home with uShip

Home removal in just three easy steps with uShip!

1 | Create Your Listing

It’s important to give as much detail as possible in terms of your move. This includes fixed dates for your move, or at least a general time bracket to work with. We need a complete list of the items which you need moving, including small and large furniture items, how many boxes you have, as well as any large photographs or artwork. It’s important to bear in mind that there are different types of services when it comes to moving, such as self-service, or loading service. Self-service means you load and unload the vehicle yourself, simply getting you from A to B, and loading service includes loading and unloading of the vehicle. There is also white glove service to think about and full service. In this case, you don’t even need to think about packing up the items you have, as this is included in the price. Think carefully about the level of service you require and include that in your details.

It is vital to have an inventory list for your move, itemised format. This helps your movers give you the most accurate price when bidding for your custom, and means you won’t have any additional costs coming your way on the day.

How Much Does it Cost for Home Removal in the UK?

Planning Your Big Move

Moving house is a big event, but it can also be a stressful one. You can cut out much of the stress by planning your move carefully beforehand. Write lists which document the entire move, and tick off items as you go. This will help you plan your move and avoid forgetting anything important. There are likely to be things you never thought about, but planning and researching will help you identify these and avoid common pitfalls, as well as making the whole experience easier. For instance, you should have the following on your to-do list:

  • Change your address
  • Disconnect and transfer utilities
  • Moving any services, e.g. satellite TV
  • Cancelling any business linked to your old address
  • Transfer services
