Let Holdsworths make 2020 the year of your move

2019 was an uncertain time for the property market. Brexit and a general election meant people put off moving home until things were a bit clearer. Of course, people do still move – for jobs, good schools, to be nearer family, downsizing or to get some extra space, but the figures show there were less houses on the market and less activity than previously.

But it seems that things are definitely on the up. December 2019 showed the number of mortgages being approved jumped to its highest level in over two years. According to the Bank of England 67,241 loans got the go ahead – the highest figure since July 2017. Good news indeed.

Other research from Zoopla took a look at how first time buyers are faring and which are the most popular locations for those buying their first property – and how much buying a home there will set you back. All the areas across the country have some things in common – being within reach of a big city (or cities) but in a more affordable location. In Yorkshire Bradford is the most popular area with those buying their first home – covering areas such as Bingley, Shipley, Thornton, Keighley, Silsden, Howarth and Ilkley. The average price those taking a first step on the property ladder will pay in the area is £110,000 with a deposit of 15 per cent. That will get you a three bed semi in many cases.

So, with things looking on the up for those wanting to move, how can we help at Holdsworths?

We can even help with packing if required – our expert team are pros at getting you packed up with the minimum hassle and ensuring everything makes it in one piece, exactly as it was packed. It doesn’t matter where you’re moving to – whether it’s your first home in Bradford, or your fifth home in the highlands of Scotland. We can even help with overseas moves, if your plans are taking you to a different country.

Just contact us to get a quote as soon as you know you’ll be moving – that way we’ll be ready to go once you know the estimated completion date. We recommend at least six weeks ahead of time if you’re able to – but don’t worry if an impending move is creeping ever closer, we’ll always try help out if we can!

Whatever moves 2020 has in store for you – we’re happy to help any way we can!

Decluttering top tips to get you on the move

Whether it’s Marie Kondo or Mrs Hinch, there’s many an expert you can follow on social media to help you get to grips with sorting, organising or cleaning your home. With the peaceful and pristine properties they create, it’s easy to feel yourself almost getting enthusiastic for a good Spring Clean!

For anyone considering a house move a good declutter, freshen up and deep clean is essential. You want the photos to sell the property at its absolute best, as spacious, light and airy. If you’re moving because it’s starting to feel too cramped, you certainly don’t want potential buyers thinking that!

‘Quality over quantity’, ‘a place for everything and everything in its place’ and ‘a tidy desk equals a tidy mind’ – all sayings we’ve probably heard hundreds of times – but that’s because they’re true!

So, here are some top tips from us here at Holdsworths to help you get sorted before putting your home on the market:

  • Be honest – It’s easy to become blind to clutter in your own home. Force yourself to really look around – or even ask family or friends to be honest with you about any areas of your home they think look cluttered!
  • Don’t get overwhelmed – Start with a room at a time or even a shelf or a cupboard every time you have five minutes. Break it into manageable chunks so you don’t get overwhelmed.
  • Create three piles – Much of the stuff you have in your home you probably use rarely, if ever. Sort things you don’t need frequently into three piles:
    • Chuck – bin things which have no further purpose for you or anyone else
    • Donate – consider whether you could donate the items to a friend, to charity or to something like a school or nursery
    • Store – consider self storage for items if you will need them again in the future. That way you can access them whenever you need to, but they’re out of the way day-to-day. It’s also preferable to piling stuff in a garage or spare room – you don’t want to give an impression of a lack of space or storage to would-be homebuyers coming for a look round.
  • Don’t drown in paperwork – Paperwork can quickly pile up, even in this electronic age. Make sure you sort through any papers and recycle things where appropriate – but if it’s got any personal details on it, it will need properly destroying. Use a home shredder, or if you’re looking at paper mountains why not get in touch about our shredding service?
  • Don’t get sentimental over clothes – When sorting clothes be realistic. Are you likely to wear the item again? Do you even like it? (as Marie Kondo says does it spark joy?). If not, pass it on.
  • Declutter surfaces as much as possible – It will really help for cleaning purposes, as it will be much quicker to wipe round ahead of a viewing.
  • Sort out the kitchen cupboard and surfaces – We’re all probably guilty of having a lot of gadgets in our kitchens which we never use, making the room look cluttered. Smoothie makers, popcorn makers, bread machines – sound familiar? If you don’t use it daily it needs to be in a cupboard rather than on display on your work surfaces, and if you don’t currently use it all consider donating or storing it!

It may seem like a daunting task at first but getting organised is always worth it. Imagine life not having to fight through a wardrobe to find outfits and being able to make a sandwich without having to clear a space on the work surface! And if you are planning a move, it might just have you selling up and calling us about removals services in no time!

Dream screen homes – what it would cost to buy our film and TV favourites

A snippet in our fantastic local paper, The Yorkshire Post, caught our eye a few weeks ago.

It being around Christmas, no doubt lots of us had spent many happy hours watching our favourite films, catching up with repeats of old classics and enjoying the Christmas specials, cuppa (or something stronger) in hand and tin of Quality Street on the go.

Many of the homes in our favourite shows and films become so familiar to us, we can almost feel like we’ve been there. Take the famous New York apartment belonging to Monica in Friends – so loved it’s done its own tour here in the UK!

Estate agent comparison website GetAgent.co.uk had the clever idea of doing some investigations to work out the value of some of the best known properties which will have appeared on our screens over the festive season.

One of our favourite Christmas films is Home Alone – did you know the suburban detached house in Chicago would cost around £1.2 million now? Not that different from Buddy’s dad’s apartment in New York from Elf at £1.05 million. Susan Walker’s detached family home at Forest Lake in Illinois from the Miracle on 34th Street would cost around £2.75 million if listed today. If you’ve watched The Holiday this Christmas, the small but very pretty Surrey cottage owned by Iris would be worth around £528,000.

Another well known property in Surrey is No 4 Privet Drive – known by every true Harry Potter fan as the Dursley family residence. The estate agent particulars would have to mention that roomy under the stairs cupboard when they market it for around £348,000.

If budget is no object, of course why not aim big. Downton Abbey’s Highclere Castle estate, home to the Crawley family, should do nicely and would be worth approximately £137 million if it was to hit the market today. If you fancy a pad in the capital city instead (or as well) perhaps try Bridget Jones’ flat in Borough Market, which would cost an estimated £1.44 million. Natalie’s terraced house in the ‘dodgy end’ of Wandsworth in Love Actually would cost around £1.02 million.

If you’ve been treating yourself to some sitcom classics this Christmas, if you fancy the look of the Vicar of Dibley’s country cottage you’d be looking at around £580,000. Gavin and Stacey’s terraced house in Barry, South Wales, would set you back a much more affordable £174,000. Del Boy and Rodney’s home in Nelson Mandela House, on the other hand, would now be worth just short of £400,000! Maybe this time next year they really will be millionaires after all…

Wherever your next move is taking you, we can help get your belongings there safely, efficiently and with a friendly and stress-free removals service. So, if 2020 sees you planning a move, get in touch – we’re always happy to chat through how the process works and can get you booked in for an estimate. Happy house hunting!

Giving winter moves a warm welcome

As reports started coming in last weekend of the first snow of the winter (although there certainly wasn’t any round us in Leeds!), it was that first reminder of what the weather can do this time of year.

So far, in the main, it’s been a wet one, with endless rain. Which doesn’t always make for a fun house move, but it’s not usually much to worry about. But, what happens when rain becomes ice or snow? Should it be something you’re worried about? (to add to the no doubt extensive list of things you’re already worrying about when it comes to moving house!)

The simple answer is – NO! Of course, there are occasionally freak weather occurrences which leave us under four foot of snow, but it’s not very frequent in this country. Rest assured in almost 100 years of moving experience we’re well used to moving in all kinds of great British weather. If it is in any way possible, we’ll get you moved safely into your new home.

Some people are put off moving in the winter with worries about being stranded or dealing with slippery drives. But you often can’t predict when a house will sell or how long a sale might take – so don’t delay booking a removal firm thinking they’ll be easy to get at short notice ‘out of season’. We get booked up all year round, and particularly when there’s bank holidays to work around, so it’s always worth getting something confirmed sooner rather than later.

The best advice for a winter move is to chat through any concerns with our team, and we’ll hopefully be able to reassure you. We’ll be keeping an eye on the forecast as much as you are, but we’re used to dealing with all kinds of situations so try not to worry!

There are simple things you can do on the day to help the move go as safely and smoothly as possible, for example:

  • There may be ice, especially early in the morning. Try to clear any ice and spread some grit. This will be safer for the team – and your belongings which they’ll be carrying!
  • You may want to protect your carpets as people will be in and out with wet shoes. It won’t be practical to keep removing them whilst carrying furniture so consider laying something down to cover flooring. Just make sure it’s not a trip hazard.
  • Use good quality packing materials to protect your items within. We’ll bring furniture covers to protect larger items from the elements.
  • It may be dark when you’re moving out or moving in, so make sure you have spare light bulbs to hand in case they’re needed and maybe a couple of torches. Especially for the new house, which will be unfamiliar.
  • Have an ‘essentials kit’ with you in your own vehicle, which should include winter coats and clothing, de-icer, shovel and grit – just in case! You can also include other items like toilet rolls, a kettle, food, chargers and any medicines you might need, and numbers for the utility companies. It’s also handy to have your bedding clearly labelled and ready to go – so if it’s late by the time you get into your new home and you’re all exhausted, you can get warm, comfy beds ready in minutes.

If you’re planning a winter move, why not get in touch for more information?

Top 5 tips to help your move go without a hitch

When you’re moving house there can be hundreds of things to think about. Liaising with vendors and buyers through estate agents and solicitors, mortgage arrangements, packing, thinking about the move itself… it’s no wonder it can start to feel overwhelming at times. It doesn’t help that much of the moving process is out of your hands – there isn’t much you can do to speed up waiting for searches or for other parts of the chain to get sorted.

That’s why it’s good to get the bits you are in control of organised and ready to go, so you feel like you’re getting somewhere! We have a full step by step guide to moving house here, which is really helpful to make sure you’re on track.

But we thought it might be handy to put our top five suggestions for things you can get sorted in advance, which you can tick off your checklist and feel good about!

  1. Speak to a removals company – we would put this first of course, but make sure you have a removal company sorted as soon as possible. We can get very booked up at certain times and Fridays are always the most popular days. Get in touch to organise a quote and we can discuss getting you booked in – even if you’re not sure about move date yet. Best not to risk missing out by leaving it too late. Remember to always choose a BAR (British Association of Removers) registered removal firm for peace of mind.
  2. Let everyone know – it can take a while to change your address on everything. Some you may not want to do in advance, so make sure you have a list with contact details to include financial organisations, insurance companies, government bodies, healthcare providers, utilities, phones, work, schools, friends and family. Get a mail redirection service organised at the Post Office to ensure if any are missed, you’re not caught out. Make sure utilities are aware and you know what to do with final/initial meter readings.
  3. The big clear out – there’s bound to be things you don’t need to take to your new home. So, start having a clear out as soon as possible – wardrobes, kitchen cupboards, lofts, garages and under the stairs cupboards included! Don’t forget things like starting to use up food in the freezer and cupboards – you won’t be able to transport frozen food and so you don’t want it going to waste. Don’t leave the clear out until you’re packing when it all becomes more stressful.
  4. Start packing – or at least start thinking about packing. You might decide you want to use a packing service such as the one we provide. If so, we would come and take a look and advise you how it would work. A packing service can save you a lot of time and stress – we’re super quick and make sure everything is packed safely and securely. If you’re doing it yourself, start early – pack up items you rarely use as far in advance as possible, such as those in your loft or kitchen equipment, to spread it out. Make sure you have all the packing materials you need – get good quality moving boxes. Remember to label boxes clearly.
  5. Think about move day plans – if you have pets and young children you might want to think about what will happen with them on move day. It’s often easier if they can be looked after elsewhere so they don’t get upset or underfoot – or bored! Think about other things like whether it’s likely to be wet and muddy (we do live in the UK) – have you got some way of protecting your carpets? What items are being left for the new owners, and will it be clear to a removals team? Will any furniture need dismantling or white goods need disconnecting?

With a bit of planning and professional help, a move needn’t be so stressful after all!

Planning for four legged friends on move day

For many of us our four-legged (or two winged, scaled or furry) friends are as much a part of the family as the people in it. But there can be one slight issue… clear communication.

While Fido might understand “walkies” and Tiddles may understand “dinner time”, neither is likely to grasp “We’re going to move house. It’s absolutely fine and nothing to worry about, but there’s going to be a lot of strange activity going on for a few weeks. Please don’t get upset as you’ll love our new home!”

For our animal friends the build up to move day can be stressful enough, with strangers looking round the house, packing boxes appearing and things being moved around. With that heightened sense that ‘something’s not quite right’, move day itself can all be too much for them.

Here at Britannia Turnbulls in Leeds, we have years of experience helping people and their pets move home – more than 150 years to be precise!

Here are our top tips for making sure your move is as stress free as possible for your ‘fur babies’:

  • If at all possible, keep your pet out of the way on move day. See if a family member or friend can have them, or if needs be consider a kennels or cattery. It will be very stressful for them to see so many strangers in the house and boxes and furniture being moved around – and it’s easy for them to get underfoot and accidentally get hurt or cause some damage. Doors will be open, and you don’t want to risk them bolting and not being able to find them as your removal van is sat waiting to depart.
  • If there is no option but for them to be at home, keep them confined to one empty room. Put a sign on the door and make sure everyone involved in the move is aware that door must not be opened. Make sure they have a comfy place to sleep and food/water and visit them regularly to give reassurance and to sort toilet trips.
  • If your pet gets really stressed in the run up to the move, talk to your vet about things which might be able to help like pheromone diffusers or sprays.
  • Make sure your pet is microchipped if appropriate – just in case they do somehow go walkabouts at your old address or your new one.
  • Pack anything your pet will immediately need at the new house in your vehicle, or in a clearly marked box. You don’t want to be scrabbling around to find their food, bed, medicine or favourite toy when you reach the new house. Don’t wash things immediately so they retain a familiar and reassuring smell.
  • Pets of all kinds should travel with you, not in the removal van. Make sure you’ve considered or sought expert advice on how to best transport them safely. Don’t feed them immediately before travelling in case it makes them car sick.
  • Be patient with your pet – they may act out of sorts for a while in their new home. Just give them plenty of reassurance and take it slowly, introducing them to the garden or local area safely whilst on a lead – dogs and cats alike!

Five top tips on how to choose a removals firm

If you’re going to trust all your worldly belongings to a removals firm, you want to make sure they’re the very best. It’s not an exaggeration to say they’re going to be looking after everything you own!

A competitive quote is obviously important, but it’s never the only thing you should judge a removals company on. Just like every industry, there will always be those who under price and fail to deliver (which could literally mean in this case not getting your belongings safely from A to B!)

So, what advice can we offer those thinking about moving home when it comes to choosing a good removals company?

  1. Reputation and track record

How long has the removal firm been in business? The likelihood is if they’ve been established for many years they have the experience you want – and should be able to provide plenty of testimonials from happy customers. We don’t want to brag or anything, but have we mentioned we’ve been in business for almost 100 years?! Also, ask your friends and family for their recommendations (or for any tips on who to avoid.)

  • BAR membership

BAR membership should be a non-negotiable. The British Association of Removers is an industry body which regulates members and can act in situations where a customer may be unhappy. Members adhere to a code of conduct so it gives you reassurance of the quality of the company you’re working with. Don’t just take a removal company’s word for their membership – you can check yourself online on the BAR website.

  • Gut feel

Gut instinct is there for a reason. If something seems a bit off about the company you’re looking at, or there’s any warning signs, don’t ignore them. Try to meet them face to face, which should be necessary if they want to do a survey, to see what items you need moving. If a service is priced very cheaply compared to competitors, there’s probably a reason why. Also, look out for things like no landline or address to contact the company. If all you have is a mobile number and they don’t turn up or answer the phone come move day, what would you do?

  • Customer service excellence

You should feel confident that the company knows exactly what they’re talking about and that they have the expertise to deal with any number of tricky situations should they arise. No one plans to have problems on move day, but you never know what might happen. Many of our removals’ teams have been working with us for 25+ years and have dealt with any number of issues confidently and calmly for our customers.

  • Everything you (might) need

Does they offer accompanying services which might come in useful? For example, can they provide a packing service or storage? You might plan to use storage as part of your move, or it might be needed if something unexpected happens. For example, if your purchase gets delayed by a few days but your sale can’t wait, what would you do? At Holdsworths we can pack your items straight into container storage on the removal van so it gets safely and securely stored until you’re ready for us to bring it to your new home.

If you have any questions about removals, we’re always happy to help, with no obligation. Why not get in touch?

Beating the winter blues with a move to the sun

So, summer is nearly over…and stories of an arctic winter have already started coming in! According to news reports we should be bracing ourselves for the worst winter in a decade…yay… (although to be fair we wouldn’t mind the chance to do a bit of sledging and snowman building, but we’d rather it was limited to a day or two when there’s no moves booked to interfere with!)

If all the talk of winter has you feeling like The Grinch, and you’re still firmly in flip flop and sun hat territory, you’re not alone. Seasonal Affective Disorder is thought to affect two million Brits according to the NHS. Add in some post-holiday blues after a fantastic summer getaway in sunnier climes and you’re probably starting to re-pack your suitcase as you read.

But for well over 300,000 Brits a year, living in a different country isn’t just a pipe dream or restricted to a short term holiday. It’s a change in lifestyle which sees them going to life abroad. Whether it’s for work or study, for family, for retirement, or just because you want to, it’s a big undertaking – but an exciting one!

Here at Holdsworths Removals we can help you plan your international move, making sure we think of every last detail to make getting from A to B (Alwoodley to Barcelona? Adel to Byron Bay?) as hassle free as possible.

If you’re planning a move to mainland Europe a move by road, door to door with a dedicated team, is entirely possible, just like you would do within the UK. And if you’re moving further afield the move can happen by ship or freight plane.

If you’re moving the contents of an entire home with you, you may have enough for your own shipping container, which is a cost effective way to transport your belongings. If you’re only taking a few important bits and pieces – anything from a prized piece of furniture or a few suitcases to a garage full – we can offer a shared container. That way you only pay for the space you need, sharing the costs with others, making it great value for money.

Air freight is the most expensive way to transport items but is ideal for those things you need quickly, or for smaller items.

Whatever you’re taking and wherever you’re heading at Holdsworths we can offer our advice and expertise built up over almost 100 years of being in business. We’ll ensure your items are transported in the safest, most efficient way possible to suit your needs. We can even help you pack them to make extra sure they arrive in the best possible condition – they will need to be ‘export packed’ and inventoried to be suitable for their long journey. We have a network of trusted partners across the world which we can call upon if needed to help complete the journey.

Ten top tips for packing like a pro

The sold sign is up, the removal firm is booked – all that is left is to get packing!

Here at Holdsworths we have almost 100 years of removals experience – during that time we’ve packed up thousands of homes and belongings. There’s nothing we don’t know about getting belongings of all shapes and sizes safely from A to B. So, if you’re planning a house move, here are our top tips to help you pack like a pro:

  1. Hire in the experts! It’s worth giving some consideration to whether you would be better getting the professionals in to pack for you. At Holdsworths we can pack up a house in next to no time, meaning less time for you living surrounded by boxes – and the reassurance that things are packed correctly. Often people like to have a good clear out (which you may have done ahead of putting the house on the market) and then let us do the packing.
  2. Start early. You’ll be amazed how long it will take you if you’re reminiscing and deciding what to do with things as you go along. The earlier you start – particularly with areas such as the loft or garage which don’t get used day-to-da,y the easier it will be. Your kitchen and bathroom are likely to be the last two rooms you tackle, as high use areas.
  3. Get well equipped. There’s a saying which goes ‘A bad workman blames his tools’. But there’s no denying that having the right tools for a job will always help it go better. Good quality boxes, and plenty of bubble wrap and strong tape will make your move so much easier. Cheap boxes are no saving at all if it gives way and dumps all your fine china on the pavement.
  4. He ain’t heavy. There’s no point packing boxes which are too heavy to carry. Put heavy items in smaller boxes, and lighter ones in bigger sizes. If a box is getting too heavy, fill the remainder with light items such as cushions or linens. Try not to leave empty space in boxes, as it just allows things to move around, which can cause damage. Remember, soft items can often go in bags too.
  5. In the closet. We use hanging rails to transport items from wardrobes – which is so much simpler for you when you get to your new home, and saves ironing! Drawers can often be moved with items still inside. Speak to your move coordinator to find out what they’ll be able to do – put there’s no point emptying things which don’t need emptying.
  6. Look after your delicates. Anything you’re worried about, make sure it’s completely enclosed in bubble wrap or tissue paper and pack carefully in a box marked fragile. You might want to keep some valuables or sentimental items with you, which of course is completely fine. Just put them somewhere safe on move day, so the team know not to pack them on the van.
  7. Something extra special. If you have an item you’re particularly worried about moving – say a large sculpture, piece of artwork, or musical instrument, speak to your removals team about the best way to transport it. There’s always a way, but it helps if teams can come prepared with any special equipment they might need.
  8. Get labelling. Be scrupulous about your labelling. Seal every box securely with tape and make sure it’s clear what is inside and what room it’s heading for in the new house. It will make the life of the removal team easier – and your life when it comes to trying to find things at the other end.
  9. Re-flat-pack. Some items of furniture may need disassembling. Do these ahead of time where possible and make it easy to find all the elements at the other end. Keep everything together, screws included, which can be put in a bag and sellotaped to a larger piece.
  10. Create an essentials kit. If you are following the van in your own car, keep some essential items in the boot just in case. This should consist of bedding and sleepwear (when everyone is tired, the last thing you’ll want to do is try to find them), some food and drink, medicines, torches, kettle and mugs, chargers, things for pets/babies, toilet rolls, soap, toothbrushes and anything else you think you’d struggle without for 24/48 hours. You never know what time you may get into your new house, so it’s always best to be prepared.

Getting your move moving

When you’ve decided to move home, it can seem to take ages for anything to actually happen. It can take a while to get the house ready to go on the market, then it can take quite a few viewings to find the person who sees your house as their new home. But once that offer is made and accepted – hurray! Things can finally get moving… (excuse the pun).

Except they don’t. Somehow it just seems to drag on and on even more! Solicitors, surveys, mortgage brokers – everything needs to happen and things don’t seem to be progressing at the speed you want. So, what can you do to try and hurry things along?

Firstly, bear in mind this is one of the main reasons you are paying your estate agent commission. Obviously they’ve helped secure the sale, but this is when you need them to be fighting your corner to get the sale through to the finishing line as smoothly and efficiently as possible. A good estate agent is worth their weight in gold.

Hopefully before you even accepted the offer, you were confident the buyers were in a financial situation to be able to complete the sale – either as cash buyers or with a suitable mortgage offer in place. Mortgage offers can take several weeks, so you don’t want to be delayed by someone who hasn’t yet got it – even if they assure you it will be no problem, there’s no guarantee.

As soon as you receive them, complete your property information forms, with all the details of the property and the fixtures and fittings you might be leaving. The sooner these are with the solicitors, the quicker things can progress and any questions can be addressed. Make sure you get any paperwork organised and ready to send – if you’ve had building work done you’ll need building regs and planning. Include things like warranties and gas installation certificates too.

A lot of time can be wasted waiting for documents to arrive in the post – and there’s always the risk they don’t. Where possible ask to be emailed paperwork so you can print it out yourself to complete it if needed, which may save a few days here and there.

Try and agree a loose timescale for how and when you’d like to exchange and complete. It helps if everyone – professionals included – are working towards the same date, even if circumstances mean things need to change along the way. Remember that a completion date must be set by the time you exchange contracts.

Make sure you keep in touch with everyone in the process as necessary. Be easy to contact and check in as needed to ensure things are on track. It’s fine to make sure you’re keeping on top of what’s happening, and if everyone is in agreement, you can always cc everyone in the process in on relevant emails. If possible, a friendly, open process also means things can be dealt with directly rather than having to go through one person to speak to another person.

Finally, it’s definitely worth getting your removal firm organised as early in the process as possible. Even if dates aren’t finalised, you should get in touch with your preferred provider and get them to come and assess your requirements so they can provide an estimate. Popular dates – especially Fridays in the Summer – get booked up far in advance, so don’t be tempted to leave it until you have exchanged or you may not be able to get a removal team when you need it. Here at Holdsworths we’re obviously dealing with people in this situation day-in and day-out so we know how the process works. We’re always happy to have a chat through things and explain how best to proceed.

And hopefully, you’ll be raising a glass of champagne to toast your new home before you know it!
