If you need to move house in Surrey and are unable to do it on your own, you should hire the services of a professional house removal company.

Once you have a big list of companies, do some research online to know more about the reputation of the company.

There are certain appliances that need to be moved in a specific manner to avoid damage. Professional movers have a lot of experience in moving large appliances but it is your responsibility to ensure your appliance does not suffer any damage if it needs extra special care during transportation. Therefore, check the manual of large appliances to ensure safe removal without any damage.
You may think of disposing off some of your stuff to make it easier to pack. However, it is recommended to wait till the last moment before disposing anything as the movers may be able to help you carry some extra stuff.
It is your responsibility to ensure proper transportation of hazardous materials including flammables, gasoline, bottled gases as well as firearms, explosives or ammunition as removal companies are not allowed to transport such materials. Therefore, ensures proper way to transport these materials in a safe manner.
Check the attic, basement as well as the closet carefully before moving out of your house. Ensure that there is nothing of substance left behind when you leave. While professional movers will try their best to ensure a stress free move, it can get exhausting on the move day. Packing and unpacking stuff requires a lot of energy. It is recommended to keep a separate box of drinks and snacks ready to keep yourself energised during the day.
Most people do not unpack immediately on reaching their destination and live out of the boxes for a few days. Therefore, you should prepare a separate box of the essential items you may need immediately on reaching your destination. These items should be added to the moving van last which mean these items will be the first to be removed. In this manner, you will have access to the essential items while all the other items are still in boxes.
Do not forget to get in touch with your cable, lawn care, cleaning as well as newspaper and other services while you are moving out. Remember to cancel the services at least a week or two before the move.
