Moving into a New Property in Edinburgh; Packing Up and Moving on the Day

By Lindsay Thomson Subscribe to RSS | April 3rd 2012 | Views:

Once you have found your ideal property to rent in Edinburgh and have negotiated a contract with the letting agent, the next stage is to start planning your move.

The removals:

If you’re previous property was furnished and only had a few possessions then you can always request your friends and family to help you in moving you. However, you must give them plenty of notice so that they are available to help you.

If your move in the Edinburgh flats to rent is going to be temporary and you also have lots of items to keep in storage, then you must ensure that you choose a reliable self storage provider.

Moreover, if your property to rent in Edinburgh is an unfurnished accommodation then you can hire a van or a removal company to transport your things. There are certain important pointers that you must have in your mind before hiring a van or a removal company. For example you must obtain quotes from a few companies, book the company in advance, move mid-week as this is always cheaper. Also confirm plans and obtain arrangements in writing from the company or van, once you have agreed a move in date with the landlord.

Packing up

A really smart move will be to start packing early. Create an inventory of everything you are moving and give a copy to the removals firm. Always try to use small boxes for packing as they will be easier and safer to carry. It will be really easy if you can create a colour code or visual method to indicate which boxes go into which room. Importantly, you must write 'fragile’ on any boxes which are breakable.

Use old newspapers for wrapping items for safe storage and transportation.

The moving in day

This is going to be a busy day so you must get a good night sleep so that you are charged for the moving in day. Before leaving scan your Edinburgh flats to rent to ensure that you have not left anything behind. Check that the windows and doors are locked and take a final reading of the meters.

Also take the meter readings in the new property with the landlord or property agent.
