Using this checklist for moving will help you simplify the moving process, making it as worry-free as possible.

Moving out

Before the MTH team comes, establish clarity regarding their contractual obligations and your own expected actions. When in doubt, reach out to the Removal Team Leader for guidance. Both the homeowner and the removal team have defined responsibilities (although a certain level of flexibility on both fronts is desirable).

Moving in

Ensure that you or another responsible individual is available to welcome the removal team upon their arrival. If no one is present, and a reasonable waiting period elapses, you may incur storage and re-delivery fees. It's advisable to inquire about the vehicle's waiting time in case you encounter unexpected delays end route. Additionally, it can expedite the process and minimize confusion if you position yourself at the entrance and specify the placement of each item as it is brought in. Facilitating the Move: By adhering to the recommendations provided on this page, you'll likely witness the removal team responding with heightened efficiency and a more relaxed, cheerful demeanor.

If you possess any self-assembly furniture, especially those constructed from chipboard, please be aware that we highly recommend disassembling these units before the move. Chipboard joints typically lack the strength to withstand the rigors of transportation when the furniture remains assembled. We do offer a dismantling and reassembling service for your convenience, albeit at an additional cost.

To ensure clarity regarding the associated costs, you can arrange for this service in advance.

Regarding washing machines, it's important to secure the drum and disconnect it from both the water supply and the electric source. If you require assistance with disconnecting and reconnecting your washing machine, we may be able to provide this service depending on our capability to do so.

At MTH Removals we have a broad range of packing supplies to support your move in and out of West Midlands. We have cardboard boxes, bubble wraps, tapes, moving kits, and plenty of moving accessories.
