Moving home in England is undoubtedly one of life’s most significant events and – by all accounts – one of the most stressful. According to a 2019 study by Yopa, it even ranked above divorce in terms of stress, along with having a baby, starting a new job and getting married.
This might seem hard to believe, but when you consider the costs, risks and potential complications which could occur as a result of a house move, it starts to make a fair bit of sense.
If you’ve moved before, you’ll know that one of the toughest parts of the process is the last-minute nature of it all… you typically have to get all of your prized possessions and fragile items relocated in a single day, unless you’re lucky enough to have the key to your new property before you leave your current one.
If you’ve found yourself in a chain though and don’t fancy scrambling to get moved in a single day, there is a solution.
A more tranquil house move
We’ve teamed up with Reads Removals, a fellow Peterborough-based firm which has been going since 1924. One of the city’s highest-rated removal companies, Reads has an enviable reputation not only in its hometown, but across the UK – its team are experienced, highly trained and a pleasure to deal with.
But even Reads Removals recognises the stress involved in a same-day move, which is why our partnership seemed like a perfect fit. So, how does it work?
Move in, move out service
If you’re moving to Peterborough from elsewhere or are relocating within the city, you can take advantage of our ‘move in, move out’ service.
Essentially, Reads Removals can come and collect many of your non-essential items ahead of your moving day and place them in one of our self-storage units. Secured by an on-site team at all hours and with round the clock access, our storage unit facilities in Peterborough are the perfect temporary home for even your most treasured possessions.
This service eliminates the desperate rush traditionally experienced on moving day, allowing you to retrieve your non-essential items (or get them delivered to you) once you’ve settled into your new abode.
It’s also a great option if you’re downsizing to a smaller property; if you have surplus furniture or appliances which won’t fit into your new place, we can store them for you until you’re ready to sell them
