So you are moving house? How exciting! Now you need the the transition to go as smoothly as possible. That’s where we come in. We have a team of expert movers ready and waiting to take you to your new home. There are many things to consider with home removals, so we have compiled a list of some helpful hints for you below.
Home removals is a very competitive industry. If the company is too large, it can lose the personal touch, something that we think is necessary. We aim to make your moving day stress free and a friendly face goes a long way in such circumstances. If the company is too small, it may not have the correct tools or know-how to get the job done quickly and efficiently.
Think about packing. We would be more than happy to supply all the necessary packing materials such as cardboard boxes, packing tape, bubble wrap, etc. Alternatively, we could quote you to wrap the entire contents of your house.
If you are packing yourself, make sure to:
Label all the boxes with the contents and the room they belong to, to make unpacking easier.
Pack non-essential items first, such as out-of-season clothes, books, and decorative items.
Pack fragile items with extra care and use bubble wrap, packing peanuts, or foam inserts to protect them.
Use towels, clothes, and linens as extra padding for delicate items.
Pack electronics separately and label the boxes with “Fragile” and “Electronics” to ensure they are handled with care.
Dismantle larger furniture items such as beds, desks, and shelves and pack them separately with all the necessary screws and bolts. We offer a furniture dismantling service which includes reassembly at the new venue. Please ask for details. Finally, double-check every room to ensure everything is packed, labelled, and ready to go
Start with decluttering and sorting all your belongings into categories such as keep, donate, sell, or discard.
One of the most forgotten, yet important things to do. The Royal Mail offers a service to forward your post from your old address to your new address charging a set fee for a set time. This allows you to change the address on important paperwork over a period of time.
Make sure you pack some essentials in a box CLEARLY labelled and take it with you in the car/van. Make sure it contains:
For your own sanity, if you have young children or boisterous pets, ask a friend or relative to have them for the day. It will make life so much easier and keep stress levels down.

It's my 15th move in my life and Gibbons Removals was the best I've had. Professional, friendly, and completed the packing and move in 24 hours. Don't look anywhere else for your move. I highly recommend them.
Gibbons Removals made the entire process of moving from one end of the country to the other as stress-free as possible. The lads were friendly from the beginning, communication was excellent, professionalism and care for their work was impeccable. I can't thank them enough, and I would recommend them to anyone who wants a reliable, trustworthy, friendly removal service.
Really happy with Gibbons. Rob is so friendly and kept in regular contact. The team on the day did a great job and were so helpful and supportive when everything almost fell through due to inept solicitors. I've already recommended them to my mum who is also moving soon and Rob gave me a discount as a thank you. I'd definitely use these guys again.
Made the house move from north wales to London seam effortless…I was anxious beforehand but Rob and the team kept me informed from start to finish…pure professionalism with a friendly service…can’t recommend them highly enough…thanks again guys…
These guys made moving a breeze nothing was too much trouble. They cheerfully carted most of our worldly goods up three flights of stairs even taking apart and putting back together. No hesitation highly recommended made one of life's most stressful events a pleasant experience just great 👍
They are an amazing removal company!. I couldn't have asked for more! Punctual,friendly,kind and really understanding. They had their duties in control and treated my baggage with care. They are also pocket friendly! I would recommend Gibbon removals and transport over and over again. Well done!

Brilliant set of guys! Really friendly and helpful, and so good at their jobs. Nothing was too much or too difficult, and everything was done with a smile and a laugh. They made the whole process really easy and as stress free as moving 200+ miles down the country can be. Thank you so much!
