The Dos and Don’ts of Moving in London

When your big move approaches, it’s always a good idea to learn from experience. And if that’s from another people’s experience, so be it. It’s true that no two moves are ever the same, but there are some basic guidelines to work from. If you’ve had issues with relocating, then you’re already one step ahead for your next move.

Moving to London is no easy task. First off, you need to work out how you’re moving from A to B. Will you try it yourself or hire a professional company? Then you need to choose the best times to make your move to avoid traffic. At Aussie, we like to pass on any advice to our customers and what better way to do than to tell a tale of two moves. We like to call it the dos and don’ts when moving in London.

 

DIY – Doing It Yourself –

A lot of first-time buyers and renters go the DIY route. It makes sense to try and save money. If you have a car and can get a family member or friend to help, then you’re good to go. This is the exact situation one of our customers found themselves in.

Unfortunately, doing this can be as, if not more expensive, than hiring a professional removals company. After a car issue, a no-show friend, a vehicle hire and a wasted day off, which turned into two days, they ended up spending a lot of money doing it themselves.

By hiring a reputable removals company, it’s quicker, and the hard work is done by them. Our customer ended up doing most of the heavy lifting and went back to work exhausted. It was no surprise when they choose Aussie for their next relocation.

 

Hiring a Reliable Removals Company –

Another one of our customers told us about their own experiences of relocating with Aussie. Rather than try to save money and do it themselves, they made contact with us early when planning their relocation. It was a small move to an apartment in Battersea during the weekend for work reasons.

Because it was a small move, they choose our Man & Van service. Man & Van services are far more suitable for moving in and around London. Not only is it quicker to load a smaller vehicle, but it’s also more comfortable to drive them during peak hours. Not just that, they’re far less intrusive when loading and offloading. Aussie also charges by the hour for our Man & Van service, so they only paid for the time they used, rather than an all-day charge.

After speaking to both customers, it was clear that using a reliable removals company like Aussie was the best option. By using Aussie for your next move, you’re booking with the best removals company in London. We help thousands of people move in and around London every year.
