Saving money when moving in London

Most things in London come with a hefty price tag and moving in London is no exception, however if you are organised there are definitely ways too make it a little less hefty!

Below are a few ideas that will help bring that cost of moving in London down.

Book a parking suspension

Although it may sound expensive at first it will save a lot of time (money) when completing your move. If the removals team have to walk 50m to their truck up to 50 times during your move then walk back to the house that’s going to add a lot of unnecessary time (and money) to your move. The majority of councils in London charge between £40.00 and £70.00 per parking bay and require at least 10 working days to book a suspension. If you’re organised book the suspension yourself as a lot of removals firms in London charge an admin fee for booking a parking suspension.

Dismantle and re-assemble furniture

Although this is included in all professional removal services in London; if your on a tight budget and you’re not to shabby with a couple of tools you could save a few coins. Dismantling and reassembling furniture can sometimes be quite fidgety and time consuming. If you get this done before the removals team turn up you’ll save them a lot of time and save yourself a lot of money when moving in London.

Move everything to the ground floor

If your house is over three floors and you don’t mind getting your hands dirty, getting a sweat up and generally getting stuck in then moving all furniture and boxes to the ground floor before the removals team arrive will bring the cost of moving in London down. Emptying your loft and cellar before the removals team turn up will also save them time and save you money.
