Two Months Before the Move 

Organise your belongings: Start by decluttering your home. Donate, sell, or dispose of items you no longer need. A tidier space will make the move more manageable. 
Research removal companies: It's crucial to find a reliable moving company. Look no further than Wilkinsons Removals for professional and efficient removals in Bristol. 
Gather important documents: Compile personal records, legal documents, and financial papers in a safe folder. 
Notify relevant parties: Inform your employer, bank, insurance providers, and other institutions about your move. 

One Month Before the Move 

Arrange for packing supplies: Collect boxes, packing tape, bubble wrap, and markers. Visit our Packing Supplies page for more information. 
Begin packing: Start with non-essential items and clearly label each box with its contents and designated room. 
Book a removal date: Confirm your moving date with Wilkinsons Removals and coordinate the logistics. 
Inform utility providers: Notify your gas, electricity, water, and broadband providers about your move. Schedule disconnection at your current home and reconnection at your new address. 

Two Weeks Before the Move 

Notify the post office: Redirect your mail to your new address through the Royal Mail Redirection Service
Update your address: Inform your friends, family, and subscriptions of your new location. 
Organise parking: Ensure there's adequate parking for the removals truck at both your current and new homes. Visit Bristol City Council for parking permits and regulations. 
Pack a survival kit: Prepare a box of essentials for the first night in your new home. Include toiletries, clothes, basic tools, and important documents. 

One Week Before the Move 

Finish packing: Complete packing all your belongings, leaving only essential items for the final days. 
Confirm details with the removal company: Get in touch with Wilkinsons Removals to reconfirm the moving date, time, and other arrangements. 
Clean your home: Thoroughly clean your old home, or hire a professional cleaning service if necessary. 

On Moving Day 

Supervise the removals process: Ensure a representative is present to direct the movers and answer any questions.
