Changes – If you change what you are taking, you face new time restraints on the day, or the date changes, then please let us know.
Parking – If there are permit holder bays or yellow lines at either property, now is the time to contact the local council parking department to request a ‘Parking Exemption’ for our vehicle(s).
We can do this for you if you like. (Your local council may charge
for this service but it is often essential to secure access to your property and avoid parking tickets.)
Valuables – Put all the following items in a safe place that is easily accessible even during the move:
– Medication/prescriptions.
– Dental/medical records.
– Birth certificate.
– Passports.
– Small valuables.
Pet – Make arrangements for your pets.
Book disconnections – Gas appliances must be disconnected
by a Corgi registered technician. Water appliances can be disconnected by us but we must be notified in advance.
Computer – Back up all computer files.
Booking – Contact us to double-check your booking.

Packing and Wrapper

The Day Before

Packing – If you did the packing yourself, double-check that all boxes can be closed and you have not left some items unpacked. Save yourself some food which doesn’t require cutlery!

Planning a Move

The Day of the Move

Direction – We may have questions for you about your furniture, so try to be there all day.
Check – At the end of the move check that everything that should have been moved has been moved, no more and no less.
