Removals
  1. Confirm date of move with your removal company. If the date changes - which can happen, particularly where a chain is involved - remember to let your removal company know as soon as possible
  2. Clearly label items NOT to be packed. Otherwise you might find them boxed up when you need them.
  3. Purchase packing materials such as boxes and tape from your removal company, if required.
  4. If you’re not using a packing service make sure that everything is packed securely and clearly marked. This will make unpacking at the other end much quicker.
Change of address
Don’t forget to inform all relevant organisations about your change of address. These may include:
  1. Car: DVLA
  2. Utilities: Inform gas, water and electricity companies of your new address and provide final meter readings
  3. Financial: Banks, building societies, credit card/store card companies, premium bonds, share companies, pensions/insurance policies
  4. Benefit agencies: DSS, Child Benefits, Pensions
Burglar alarm
  1. Leave instructions for new owners
  2. Ensure owners of your new home leave operating instructions of the alarm for you
Cleaning
  1. Arrange to have any carpets cleaned
  2. Check cupboards and draws are empty
  3. Arrange for cleaning company to do a final clean
Documents
  1. Assemble all documents that you will need during and shortly after the move
  2. Make sure to have passports and driving license in your possession
  3. It’s always helpful - and appreciated - to leave a folder of relevant documents behind for new home owners, such as warranties for white goods you are leaving, operating instructions etc.
Pets
  1. Arrange with family and friends or a local kennels or cattery to look after your pets on removal day to avoid causing them any stress
  2. Purchase pet carries if required
Post
Inform Royal Mail you are moving and set up re-direction of post to new address
Internet
Advise your internet or broadband company of your change of address. Will you need to install broadband in your new home and is broadband with your existing company available in your new home?

Amazing service from Lyon’s during our move. They were on time and so fast. Nothing was too much trouble and they smiled throughout, would definitely recommend :)

I would absolutely recommend Lyons removal service. We were happy with the price for the service and our two guys, Rick and Ellis worked tirelessly throughout the day, moving a large amount of boxes and furniture with total professionalism. What great workers! A credit to Lyons. Not a thing was damaged or broken. We are very satisfied customers.

Very happy with the service from Lyons Removals. Liz & John were very reassuring and took away the stress of moving. Richard, with his calm demeanour, packed up our house along with Carl, in a speedy and professional manner. The move itself went without a hitch. Thank you to this family run firm.
