Creating a Moving Checklist When Relocating in Dorset

Organising a relocation can be a juggling act, as you try to balance any family and work schedules while planning your move. There are lots of distractions that make it easy to forget to arrange your removals company or possibly a professional cleaning service. This is where issues can occur, especially if you’re working with several service providers at the same time.

Fortunately, there is a steadfast method that will help you refocus if you stray from your plan. Creating a moving checklist is a vital aspect of any relocation, and it’s your master document to keep everything on track. At Johnson’s of Shaftesbury, we try our best to advise our followers with tips of preparing for a relocation.

How Should You Prepare to Move House? –

Your upcoming relocation is going to take up a lot of your time, and you’ll no doubt have things you need to do at home and work. That’s why you should do these two things. The first is to create a moving checklist, which will help you map out every task that relates to your relocation. Then, the second thing is to contact Johnson’s of Shaftesbury to discuss the details of your move.

The Johnson’s team are available to help you while you plan and organise your relocation. If you know the location you’re moving to in Dorset, we can factor this into our removals plan to avoid congestion and peak traffic. We’ll continue to check up on roadworks and other issues before the day of your relocation.

It’s a good idea to visit the area you’re moving a few times before you make any commitments. The last thing you want is to plan on moving to a quiet area then you realise that it’s a lot noisier at night. Our advice is to book a weekend stay at least twice so you can make an informed assessment. It will also give you a chance to meet people and find some places to eat and drink nearby.

In addition to putting together a moving checklist, it’s crucial that you also make a home inventory. You can download a home inventory app for your phone. These apps are an excellent way to log every item, and you can save them per the room they’re in. You should then label each box with the same reference from your app.

A Choice of Removals and Storage in Dorset –

Johnson’s has a range of removals and storage packages to suit anyone’s needs in Dorset. We have a fleet of removals vehicles of various sizes, which means we can undertake just about any removals job. Our goal is to provide you with a relocation that’s cost-effective and efficient. That means we’ll thoroughly assess everything in detail in advance of the moving day.

Our Man & Van service is the ideal way to relocate if you have fewer possessions that don’t take up lots of room. It’s also handy for inter-location moves or other relocations that cover shorter distances. The smaller vans can handle the rural Dorset roads well, even with a full load. And it’s easier to change routes to avoid congestion or roadworks.

For people who are relocating from a four-bed plus houses with lots of furniture and appliances, we would recommend our Home Removals service. This comes with the use of a larger vehicle and more team members to get the job done. By using this service, we can complete everything in one journey by using a bigger removal van.

Moving home can have its issues or delays, but the Johnson’s team are always ready with a solution. For people who find they have a gap in moving dates, we have storage units at our depot. With storage prices starting at just £14 per week, you won’t find better storage prices in Dorset.
