Moving advice


Moving day has finally arrived and it's time to move all your worldly possessions. Here's the Severn Homes guide to making that journey as stress-free as possible!


Plan ahead as far as possible. We all keep putting off the decision to start packing but the sooner you can do it, the better. Start off with things you haven't used for a while and label all the boxes clearly. If you've picked a removals company, they can often supply boxes to make everything as simple as possible.

Hire the experts

It depends how much you need to move, perhaps you can manage with hiring a van and a couple of helpful friends, but often there comes a time when you need the experts! The British Association of Removers hold a list of their members and you can even get online quotes.

Change of address

It's easy to forget but an important step. As well as your bank, doctors and utility suppliers, you'll also need to tell all your magazine subscriptions, online shopping and of course, friends and relatives! The Royal Mail has a redirection service for the ones you forget.

Finally, enjoy!

Your new home might resemble a warehouse but you're in. Take a moment to celebrate and enjoy your new home!
