CONGRATULATIONS ON AN EXCITING NEW CHAPTER IN YOUR LIFE!
Congratulations if you’re moving home in South Yorkshire!
It’s an exciting time and we wish you all the best. When it comes to the actual physical moving of your stuff, please get in touch as VG Removals would be delighted to help. We’re experienced in the home move industry and we know just how stressful this time can be.
Here are the top 5 tips that we hope will make moving home in your area easier.
1. ASK QUESTIONS
Don’t forget to ask the people who used to live in your new home lots of questions. Specifically where the electric and gas metres are and where to find the stopcock. This will likely make your life much easier at some stage in the future.
2. REDIRECT YOUR POST
We recommend using Royal Mail’s Postal Redirection service to make sure you don’t miss any post that is accidently sent to your old address. You can do this for up to a year if you wish. This gives you peace of mind that people aren’t getting any post meant for you and important things like bills are not left unpaid.

3. GET CLEANING
If you have time, try to clean your new house before you move in. We know with timescales and distances this isn’t always possible, but if it is something that you can work into your moving schedule then we recommend it. This means that when your boxes and items start to get moved into your new house you’re in a position to put them roughly where they’re going to be and get unpacking.
4. MOVING YOUR STUFF
Of course, we recommend using a recommend reputable and experienced local home removal company to move you to your new house. However, the packing of your items at your old house can do wonders for making life easier. For example, label boxes with information of what is inside – place these labels both on the side and the top of the box so they’re always visible. If you’re taking apart furniture then put the screws into freezer bags and stick these to the furniture they belong to, so they’re in easy reach at your new property. Just so you know VG Removals cover all areas of South Yorkshire with offices in Sheffield, Rotherham, Barnsley and Doncaster. Call free on 0800 999 7077 today of live chat from our website.
5. TAKE THINGS WITH YOU
We recommend putting together a box of stuff you might need when moving in, so that things are within easy reach. Things to include would be: a couple of light bulbs, a toilet roll, teabags, milk and cleaning products.
