Moving home is a huge undertaking, and once the wheels are set in motion and you have a date for exchanging the keys, you have to comply with that date.
It doesn’t matter whether you get sick, it’s raining outside, or mother nature is truly refusing to co-operate by throwing extreme weather at you, the landlord or incoming homeowner is unlikely to have much sympathy.
Several homeowners found themselves in exactly that situation in March as The Beast From The East hit and blanketed huge sections of the UK in several inches, or even feet, of snow. ASP Removals stepped up to help many of those families, with their removal vehicles working to safely reach the properties, and their crews wrapping up warm to carry out all that furniture and all those boxes.
The Beast From The East hit at the start of March and covered huge parts of the England and Scotland in snow, causing travel disruptions for public transport users and for drivers alike. There were several serious crashes on motorways, and the MET office issued numerous Yellow and Amber warnings as well as some Red weather warnings (meaning severe danger to life) – something that is unheard of in many parts of the country. ASP Removals take safety seriously for their drivers and crews and for the people that they work with. They considered weather forecasts carefully, looked at the best routes for their removal lorry to take, and made every effort to ensure that they reached their clients safely and were able to transport their possessions to their new properties intact and in a timely fashion.
Planning Your Next Move
Hopefully, if you are planning a move, you will be able to do it during the summer months when the weather is more friendly, and your move will go smoothly with no disruptions. Sometimes, things don’t go according to plan, however – road closures, protests or other events can cause chaos, and with the climate the way it is now you can never tell if flooding or a sudden summr blizzard might strike. That’s why it’s important to find a removals company that will work with you whatever the weather, and do everything that they can to ensure that your furniture and other items are moved when you need them to be.
If you’re preparing to move, it’s a good idea to start getting rid of any possessions that you aren’t likely to use again. The less you take, the less stress the move will be. Declutter now, and start thinking about how you want to pack up any delicate items/items that have sentimental value. You can get the removal company to pack for you if you feel you don’t have the expertise to pack up things such as fine china. Having a mental inventory of what matters to you will go a long way towards giving you peace of mind when the move comes, however, so it is worth doing.
