Whether you require a comprehensive service with all the bells and whistles or just a bit of van space for items that won't fit in your vehicle, Shiply has you covered.


Each house move is distinct, so having multiple quotes to compare allows you to select the service that best suits your needs. With thousands of registered companies, you'll have a wider range of options for the assistance you require on moving day and greater control over the price you pay. When listing your house or flat move on Shiply, you can provide as much information as you desire. We suggest being as detailed as possible so that companies know what services to offer with accurate quotes.

Advantages of Utilizing Shiply for Your House Move in Scarborough


Shiply has thousands of registered moving companies ready to provide you with a quote for your house move in Scarborough. This means you have a greater selection of company types, service types, and prices. Using Shiply saves you time as you only need to create one listing, allowing moving companies to come to you instead of having to contact each company individually.


Our online form is straightforward and user-friendly. You simply need to answer a few questions about the specifics of your personal house move, such as whether you reside in a house or flat, the number of rooms, and the addresses of both the old and new home. Your listing will be live in no time.


Choosing a moving company through Shiply is also more environmentally friendly. Our registered moving companies schedule their jobs around their existing work in a similar area to you or utilize spare space in what would otherwise be an empty or partially-full vehicle. This means your house move will often have a smaller negative impact on the environment.


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


Types of Moving Services Available on Shiply


A company offering a full moving service will assist you with all aspects of the move, including helping you pack, doing all the heavy lifting at both ends, and unpacking for you in your new home in Scarborough. This type of service is typically more expensive due to the amount of work involved but would suit a busy household with minimal time for packing and those who would rather avoid the stress of the move and leave the bulk of the work to the professionals.


A part-service offers some of the same features as a full service but not all. Typically, a part-service will include loading and unloading at both ends but will not include helping with any packing. This type of service would be best for those who are around on the day to be involved in the move but perhaps need an extra pair of hands. A part-service would also suit those who may need help with particular jobs at either side of the process, for example, assistance with assembling furniture.


A self-service or self-packing move is the most basic and cost-effective of the moving types. Self-service can be either just the hiring of a van for you to drive yourself, or it can be hiring a driver with a vehicle to transport your possessions from the old house to the new one. If you've already got plenty of hands ready to help on moving day and do not need a team to help with packing and assembling, a self-service move is probably all you'll need for your move.


When choosing between quotes from moving companies on Shiply, ensure you understand the service that each quote includes, so you know exactly what to expect and how to prepare for moving day. Before you accept a quote, we recommend that you take a look at the Shiply profile of each company - here you can check the insurances and accreditations of all the companies that have sent you a quote, as well as the companies' feedback as rated by other Shiply users. Once you've decided which company to go for, accept your chosen quote.


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


Preparing for Your House Move in Scarborough


There are many things to do to prepare for moving day, which will help everything run more smoothly and minimize stress. Here are some tips to help you in the lead-up to your moving day:


Inform people about your move - In addition to loved ones, make sure you remember to notify companies about your move, including energy providers, your bank, and Royal Mail. Subscriptions and memberships will need to be transferred to the new address, as well as your TV licence and phone bill, so make a list of everyone you need to inform and work your way down one by one.


Declutter - Try to get rid of things you don't want to keep, especially if your new home has less storage space than your current home. For higher-value items, try selling on eBay for some extra money, and consider donating items to charity or giving 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, not surrounded by things you don't need or want.


Ask supermarkets for leftover cardboard boxes - Boxes don't have to cost a fortune. Ask friends and family for spare boxes or visit your local supermarket in Scarborough to see if they have any in the stockroom for you to 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, so you've got everything you need on the day.


Pack your most used items last - If you're struggling to get started with the packing, a great place to start is to pack the items you use the least first. If you've got a loft or cupboard full of items you hardly use (but don't want to throw away), you can pack these first without impacting your day-to-day life. As moving day draws nearer, gradually work your way towards packing items that are more and more regularly used.


For fragile items like crockery or ornaments, make sure you use protective packaging like bubble wrap or newspaper and check that they are tightly packed in their boxes, so they can't move around too much or break during the journey between houses.


Label everything - Make sure boxes are clearly labelled. You don't have to list everything in each box, but even writing which room it's for (e.g., kitchen, bedroom 1) will help the moving company know which room to take the box to and will help you when unpacking at the new home. Stock up on parcel tape and pens and share them out to each family member so they can pack their own bedrooms.


Try to schedule a weekday move - If you can, a weekday move is more beneficial for several reasons: There'll be less traffic on the roads, fewer people around, and there should be more moving companies to choose from by avoiding a weekend date. If you've got children, moving on a weekday means they'll be at school, so will be safely out of the way and get to come back to a new home after their school day.


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


Keep in contact with your chosen company - If there are any changes that may affect how your chosen moving company can help you on the day, make sure you let them know so they are aware in advance. For example, if you're not allowed in the new home until a later time of day to when you've agreed, or if you need more vehicle space than you anticipated.


Arrange cleaning in the old house - Whether you're cleaning it yourself or hiring a professional cleaning company, make sure you 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, you might want to leave things 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 having to unpack boxes prematurely or wasting time desperately looking for a phone charger in a sea of boxes. Good things to include in a moving day bag would be a toothbrush, toilet roll, a change of clothes, and a toolkit.


Why People Often Move to and from Scarborough


Scarborough, a picturesque coastal town in North Yorkshire, UK, attracts many people for various reasons. Some are drawn to the stunning natural beauty of the area, with its sandy beaches, rugged cliffs, and lush countryside. Others appreciate the town's rich history and cultural heritage, evident in its castles, museums, and festivals.


The slower pace of life and strong sense of community in Scarborough also appeal to those seeking a change from the hustle and bustle of larger cities. Additionally, the town's affordability, particularly in terms of housing, makes it an attractive option for families, retirees, and those looking to stretch their budget further.


On the other hand, some people may choose to move away from Scarborough for employment opportunities, to be closer to family, or to experience life in a different part of the country or world. Whatever the reason for moving to or from Scarborough, using a reliable removals service can help make the process smoother and less stressful.
