Moving Out of Greater Manchester County: A Checklist
Do you have plans to leave Manchester? As a local business that’s operated in the area for decades, we at Expert Removals really love it here. But we also understand that you may wish to pursue a new adventure or opportunity, and we’re here to help you out.
Having performed countless removals for people moving both in and out of Greater Manchester county, we’re in a good position to offer some steps and tips for making your move a great success. Check off this list and you’ll be off to a brilliant start for your big move!
1. Research your new town.
Look at job openings and find out what schools are available in the area if required. Investigate where the best neighbourhoods are and look at property prices there. Think about what you love in the Manchester area and search for equivalent advantages in your new county.
We recommend seeing where you can enjoy parks and other public facilities. Before committing to a brand new county, it makes sense to ensure that it fits your lifestyle
2. Budget for your move.
Moving can be expensive. It’s a good idea to plan out your budget so you don’t end up spending beyond your means. Remember to include any fees you have to pay to lawyers, real estate agents, or landlords.
3. Choose a great removals team.
Nobody loves moving day, except maybe experienced removals companies like Expert Removals in Manchester. The few with our knowledge and experience know that it doesn’t have to be a drag.
Choosing the right removals service can take all the stress out of the transition. Select wisely; this team will be handling your most prized possessions! Look for a firm that’s within your budget and known to deliver excellent customer service.
4. Plan your move in detail.
Winging it won’t work if you want a smooth and efficient move. Once you have your moving date, you can start making practical plans. Do you need time off work, for example? Or maybe childcare?
When should you start packing, and how long will it take? Do you have a system in place for packing that will make settling into a new county easy?
These are important questions to consider. If you need help planning your move from Manchester, Expert Removals is happy to offer expert guidance.
5. Donate all you don’t need
During the packing process, you’re bound to come across items that you no longer require. Why drag them all the way to a new county just to throw them out?
There are plenty of charities in Manchester that would love to receive them. Expert Removals offers a convenient man and van service if you need help transporting.
6. Change your contact information
Remember to inform the bank and all utilities that you’re changing your address. Being proactive at this stage can save you a lot of hassle later!
You’ll also want to invite all your friends and family from Manchester to see your new place. What better way to do so than by throwing an amazing housewarming party?
