Your moving house checklist

Thursday 21st April 2022

Planning Your Move


Choose Your Move Date

Try to avoid moving on a Friday or a Bank Holiday, as this is when removal companies are at their busiest.


Book Your Removal Company

Before you book, ask for recommendations from friends, neighbours or local Facebook groups.


Order Furniture

One of the few downsides of island life is that it can take quite a long time to receive deliveries from the mainland, especially for larger items. If you need any furniture, white goods, or appliances for your new home, order them well in advance
