Moving day:

  2. Once everything is loaded, walk round with a member of the removal team to make sure you’re not leaving behind anything you want to remove.

  3. Take meter readings in your old and new homes.

  4. Arrive before your removal team so you can have a good look around your new property. Give the team a full tour of the house when they arrive.
