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


Each house removal is distinct, so having multiple quotes to compare allows you to find the ideal service for your move. With thousands of registered companies, you'll have greater flexibility in choosing the assistance you need on moving day and the price you pay. When listing your house or flat move on Shiply, provide as much detail as possible so companies can offer accurate quotes for their services. Once you've received several quotes, you can communicate with the removal firms using the messaging system to clarify any further details before making your final decision and accepting a quote.


Over 100,000 individuals have discovered a removal company through Shiply, including many in Blyth, Northumberland, UK. Blyth is a sought-after location for removals due to its proximity to Newcastle upon Tyne and the stunning Northumberland coast. Many people relocate to Blyth for job opportunities in the area or to enjoy a more tranquil lifestyle by the sea. Whatever your reason for moving to or from Blyth, Shiply can assist you in finding a dependable and cost-effective removal company.


Advantages of Utilizing Shiply for Your House Relocation


Shiply has thousands of registered removal companies prepared to provide you with a quote for your house relocation. This means you have a wider selection of companies, services, and prices to choose from.


Using Shiply saves you time. With Shiply, you only need to create one listing. Allowing removal 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.


Shiply is user-friendly. Our online form is straightforward and easy to navigate. You just need to answer a few questions about the specifics of your personal house move, such as whether you live in a house or flat, the number of rooms, and the addresses of both the old and new home.


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


Shiply helps you save money. As your possessions will be utilizing otherwise wasted space in vehicles, our removal companies can offer more affordable prices for the same high standards of service. Shiply users typically save up to 75% compared to standard rates, so you won't be paying an unnecessary premium.


Types of Removal Services Available on Shiply


A company offering a full moving service will assist you with all aspects of the move, including packing, heavy lifting at both ends, and unpacking in your new home. This type of service is typically more expensive due to the amount of work involved but suits busy households with minimal time for packing and those who want to avoid the stress of the move.


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 packing assistance. This type of service would be best for those who are around on the day to be involved in the move but need an extra pair of hands. A part-service would also suit those who may need help with particular jobs, such as assembling furniture.


A self-service or self-packing move is the most basic and cost-effective option. Self-service can be either just the hiring of a van for you to drive yourself or hiring a driver with a vehicle to transport your possessions. If you've already got lots 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.


When choosing between quotes from removal 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 accepting a quote, check the Shiply profile of each company to see their insurances, accreditations, and feedback from other Shiply users. Once you've decided which company to go for, accept your chosen quote and let them know of any changes that may affect them.


Preparing for Your House Relocation


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, including loved ones, energy providers, your bank, and Royal Mail. Subscriptions, memberships, TV licence, and phone bill will need to be transferred to the new address.


Declutter by getting rid of things you don't want to keep, especially if your new home has less storage space. Sell higher value items, donate to charity, or give 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.


Ask supermarkets for leftover cardboard boxes or visit your local supermarket to see if they have any in the stock room for you to have. If you've paid for a full moving service, cardboard boxes may be provided but double-check what your service includes.


Pack your most used items last. Start by packing items you use the least, such as those in your loft or cupboards. As moving day draws nearer, gradually work your way towards packing more regularly used items. For fragile items, use protective packaging like bubble wrap or newspaper and check that they are tightly packed.


Label everything clearly, even if just writing which room it's for (eg. kitchen, bedroom 1). This will help the removal company know where to take each box and will help you when unpacking at the new home.


Try to schedule a weekday move if possible. There'll be less traffic, fewer people around, and more removal companies to choose from. If you've got children, moving on a weekday means they'll be at school and out of the way.


Recruit helpers if you think you might need 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 and let them know of any changes that may affect them on the day, such as a later move-in time or needing more vehicle space than anticipated.


Arrange cleaning in the old house, whether doing it yourself or hiring a professional cleaning company. Leave the old house empty, clean, and tidy for the next owners.


Pack a moving day bag for everyone with essentials for the first few days in your new home, such as a toothbrush, toilet roll, a change of clothes, and a toolkit. This will save you having to unpack boxes prematurely or waste time looking for items in a sea of boxes.


By following these tips and using Shiply to find a reliable and affordable removal company, you can make your house move to or from Blyth as smooth and stress-free as possible. With Shiply, you'll have more choice, save time and money, and have peace of mind knowing your possessions are in good hands.

Couriers on Shiply are able to provide all levels of service and can help pack your items, just ensure you inform them of your needs.

Will My Goods Be Tied Up Securely?

Can Items Be Taken Upstairs?

Yes, items can be taken upstairs if needed, and can also be assembled. Transport providers on Shiply are happy to provide these services, but you should ensure that you are mentioning these requirements in your listings as it may mean a second person is required for the move.

Can I Change The Address Of The Delivery?

If you have not yet accepted a quote then you are able to change the address of your listing. Note that editing details of your listing after publishing will result in active quotes being voided, so you will have to wait for new quotes to come in. If you have already accepted a quote and need to change the address, please let your transport provider know and contact us at .

Will The Movers Help With Unpacking?

Transport providers on Shiply are able to help with your house move on both ends (packing and unpacking), but you should make sure they are informed of this requirement as they may need to plan for this.

How Many Movers Will Show Up?
