We’ve learnt a few things about moving over the last 35 years

Packing Advice

  • Almost without exception, the kitchen will take the longest to pack so do not leave it until last!
  • Always use small boxes for heavy or fragile items
  • Fragile items should be lightly compressed within a box using soft padding (newspaper/tissue/bubble wrap), it is vital that it cannot move around
  • Use large boxes or plastic bags for duvets, sheets and clothing
  • We supply wardrobe boxes for clothes on hangers. As they take up space, it is best to pack these on moving day
  • To help reduce stress, we advise you to make a list of things you will need to leave un-packed for the day of the move, such as cleaning materials, bowls, plates, cups and cutlery
  • Always get your packing completed before the move date as there will not be time on the day

Moving Advice

  • We will do our best to work around your preferred moving date. You can book your move in with us and sign your acceptance with 'date to be confirmed' but please confirm the actual date with us as soon as you know
  • We will discuss access and parking arrangements with you during your survey, but in general try to ensure there is a feasible parking position for our removal vehicle(s). If the vehicle(s) are to be parked on the road, we can provide you with cones to single out a parking bay
  • We advise that younger children and pets are looked after by a relative or friend on the day of the move
  • Mark the boxes containing your essentials and point them out to our removals team so they can be kept aside when unloading. You may not feel like unpacking at the end of the day, so it is convenient to know where your essentials are
  • If using a removal company other than Robins, ensure you check their policy on charging for overtime. Often delays occur on the day which can significantly hold your move up, unfortunately you could be charged extra for this whether it is your fault or not! We do not charge extra for overruns
