What Advantages Does Shiply Offer 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 when it comes to the type of company, services offered, 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 one 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.



Eco-Friendly - Our registered moving companies schedule their jobs with Shiply around their existing work in your area or utilize spare space in what would otherwise be an empty or partially-filled vehicle. 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-quality service you would expect when approaching house 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 every aspect of the move, including packing, 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 move would be ideal for busy households with limited time for packing and those who prefer to avoid the stress of the move by leaving the majority of the work to professionals.



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



A self-service or self-packing move is the most basic and cost-effective option. 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 to help with packing and assembling, a self-service move is likely all you'll need.



When choosing between quotes from moving 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 from other Shiply users. Once you've decided which company to hire, accept your chosen quote.



Leading up to your moving date, make sure to inform your chosen company of any changes that may affect them.


Why Do People Frequently Move To and From Worcester, Worcestershire, UK?



Worcester is a stunning cathedral city situated in the heart of Worcestershire, UK. Many individuals choose to relocate to Worcester for its rich history, breathtaking architecture, and picturesque countryside surroundings.

Whether moving to or from Worcester, employing a reliable moving company can make the process much smoother and less stressful. With Shiply, you can easily find trusted and affordable "removals worcester" or "worcester removals" companies to assist with your relocation.


How Should I Prepare for My Home Move?



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 lead-up to your moving day:



Inform People About Your Move - In addition to loved ones, remember to notify companies about your relocation, including energy providers, your bank, and Royal Mail. Subscriptions, memberships, TV licenses, and phone bills will 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 - Attempt 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 think about 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, not 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 stockroom 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, use protective packaging like bubble wrap or newspaper and ensure they are tightly packed in their boxes to prevent them from moving around or breaking during the journey between houses.



Label Everything - Ensure boxes are clearly labeled. You don't have to list every item in each box, but even writing which room it's for (e.g., kitchen, bedroom 1) will help the moving company know where to take the box 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 moving 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 load 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 on 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 moving company can assist you on the day, make sure to let them know in advance. For example, if you're not allowed in the new home until a later time than initially agreed upon, 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 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.

Can Items Be Taken Upstairs?

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.
