What Are the Advantages of Utilizing Shiply for My Home Relocation?


Thousands of Registered Moving Companies - Shiply has a vast network of companies ready to provide you with a quote for your home relocation. This means you have a greater variety of options in terms of company types, service offerings, and pricing.


Time-Saving - With Shiply, you only need to create one listing. Allowing moving companies to come to you instead of having to contact each company individually will save you a significant amount of time, allowing you to focus on other aspects of your move while the quotes arrive in your inbox.


User-Friendly - Our online form is straightforward and easy to use. Simply answer a few questions about the specifics of your personal home move, and your listing will be live in no time. Questions include whether you reside in a house or apartment, the number of rooms, and the addresses of both your current and new home.


Environmentally Friendly - Our registered moving companies schedule their jobs with Shiply around their existing work in areas near you or utilize spare space in vehicles that would otherwise be empty or partially full. This means your home move will often have a reduced negative impact on the environment.


Cost-Effective - As your belongings will be utilizing otherwise wasted space in vehicles, our moving companies can offer more affordable prices for the same high standards of service that you would expect from approaching home removal companies individually elsewhere. Shiply users typically save up to 75% compared to standard rates, ensuring you won't be paying an unnecessary premium.


What Types of Moving Services Can I Find on Shiply?


A company offering a comprehensive moving service will assist you with all aspects of the move, including packing assistance, heavy lifting at both locations, and unpacking in your new home. This type of service typically comes at a higher cost due to the extensive work involved. A full service is ideal for busy households with limited time for packing and those who prefer to avoid the stress of the move and leave the majority of the work to professionals.


A partial service offers some of the same features as a full service but not all. Typically, a partial service will include loading and unloading at both ends but will not include packing assistance. This type of service is best suited for those who are available on the day to be involved in the move but may require an extra set of hands. A partial service is also ideal for those who may need help with specific tasks at either end of the process, such as furniture assembly.


A self-service or self-packing move is the most basic and cost-effective type of removal. Self-service can involve either renting a van for you to drive yourself or hiring a driver with a vehicle to transport your belongings from your old house to your new one. If you already have plenty of helpers ready to assist on moving day and do not require a team for packing and assembly, a self-service move is likely all you'll need for your relocation.


When choosing between quotes from removal companies on Shiply, ensure you understand the services included in each quote so you know exactly what to expect and how to prepare for moving day. Before accepting a quote, we recommend reviewing the Shiply profile of each company, where you can verify their insurances, accreditations, and feedback ratings from other Shiply users. Once you've decided on a company, accept your chosen quote.


In the days leading up to your moving date, make sure to inform your chosen company of any changes that may affect them.


How Should I Prepare for My Home Relocation?


There are numerous tasks to complete in preparation for moving day, which will help everything run more smoothly and minimize stress. Here are some tips to assist you in the days leading up to your move:


Inform Others About Your Move - In addition to loved ones, remember to notify companies about your move, including energy providers, your bank, and Royal Mail. Subscriptions, memberships, your TV license, and phone bill will all need to be transferred to your new address, so create a list of everyone you need to inform and work through it one by one.


Declutter - Try to get rid of items you no longer want to keep, especially if your new home has less storage space than your current one. For higher-value items, consider selling them on eBay for extra money, and consider donating items to charity or giving them away to friends and family. After decluttering, you'll have fewer boxes to pack, and it'll feel more like a fresh start in your new home, without being surrounded by things you don't need or want.


Request Leftover Cardboard Boxes from Supermarkets - Boxes don't have to be expensive. Ask friends and family for spare boxes or visit your local supermarket to see if they have any in the stock room that you can have. If you've paid for a full moving service, cardboard boxes may be provided, but it's best to double-check what your service includes to ensure you have everything you need on the day.


Pack Your Most Used Items Last - If you're having trouble getting started with packing, a great place to begin is by packing the items you use the least first. If you have a loft or cupboard full of items you rarely use (but don't want to throw away), you can pack these first without impacting your daily life. As moving day approaches, gradually work your way towards packing items that are more frequently used. For fragile items like crockery or ornaments, make sure to use protective packaging like bubble wrap or newspaper and ensure they are tightly packed in their boxes to minimize movement and breakage during the journey between houses.


Label Everything - Ensure that boxes are clearly labeled. You don't have to list every item in each box, but even writing the room it's intended for (e.g., kitchen, bedroom 1) will help the removal company know which room to take the box to and will assist you when unpacking at your new home. Stock up on parcel tape and pens and distribute them to each family member so they can pack their own bedrooms.


Try to Schedule a Weekday Move - If possible, a weekday move is more beneficial for several reasons: There will be less traffic on the roads, fewer people around, and there should be more removal companies available by avoiding a weekend date. If you have children, moving on a weekday means they'll be at school, safely out of the way, and can return to a new home after their school day.


Recruit Helpers - If you can and think you might need to, ask for help from those close to you to ease the workload on moving day. An extra person helping will get the work done faster, which will lower stress levels and give you more time to enjoy your new home. If you anticipate needing an extra pair of hands on the day, make sure to specify this in your Shiply listing so companies can source the necessary staff.


Keep in Contact with Your Chosen Company - If there are any changes that may affect how your chosen removal company can assist you on the day, make sure to inform them in advance. For example, if you're not allowed in the new home until a later time than initially agreed upon or if you require more vehicle space than anticipated.


Arrange Cleaning in the Old House - Whether you're cleaning it yourself or hiring a professional cleaning company, make sure to leave the old house empty, clean, and tidy for the next owners to move in. If you don't want to take cleaning products to the new place, consider leaving items like cloths or bleach for the new owners to use.


Pack a Moving Day Bag - A great idea is for everyone to have their own moving bag packed with essentials for the first few days in your new home. This will save you from having to unpack boxes prematurely or waste time desperately searching for a phone charger in a sea of boxes. Good items to include in a moving day bag would be a toothbrush, toilet roll, a change of clothes, and a toolkit.
