The Night Before Your Move

Finish off your packing just leaving out the essentials as if you were packing for an overnight trip and of course tea, coffee, and the kettle!

Place anything that is essential to you on your move day (e.g. documents, keys, medication) in one place and mark with a note so we don’t accidentally pack them into the removal vehicle

Take apart beds (if this service is not ordered)

Have one last check around making sure that everything that can be packed, is, and then go to bed because we will be there bright and early the next day
