Festive Essentials for a Christmas Removal

| December 16, 2016

So the Christmas countdown is well underway and you have another date that you are counting down towards. Your big move. A Christmas and winter move can provide extra obstacles to consider such as access to the property in potentially tricky and dark weather. But while you approach your removal, consider the following ideas to ensure that it runs well.


The more serious of the four options, you might be surprised but Christmas is actually a very busy period in the removal industry as a rush emerges to get the moves done so that as many people are in their new home for Christmas Day. This means that you have to be prepared when gathering quotes and arranging with your removal company. You don’t want to be scrambling around the Monday before Christmas so make sure that you plan for the rush.

Christmas Playlist

Keep the festive cheer going for your family and the removal crew by having a festive playlist on the go while your removal is happening. Driving Home For Christmas by Chris Rea seems like an apt song for a Christmas home removal!

Mince Pies

Removal crews can be fuelled by cups of tea to keep them working hard and morale high. But as you would leave out some mince pies for Santa by the fire, bringing out some mince pies are bound to keep the smiles on their faces. They’re not for everyone but even the offering of a mince pie would keep morale high.

Decorations at the Ready

Getting your new home ready for Christmas may not feel like the most essential thing to do when you are finally moved in but it would certainly help it feel more homely as soon as you put some Christmas lights up. This is especially the case if you have a young family that might be worried about the move, lighting and decorating your new home.
