There are a lot of things to consider when moving house or office in London. In the weeks before the move, limit your grocery shop and use up the contents of your fridge and freezer. Defrost the freezer at least 24 hours before the man with the van arrives to pick them up. The water needs to be drained from the freezer and other appliances such as washing machines and dish washers. Book your moving company online.

If there is any garden equipment, like lawn mowers, to move then the petrol should be drained from them and they should be allowed time to dry out. Paint needs to be in leak proof containers. Certain items are so visible that they seem to disappear and are easily forgotten about. For example, if you are taking the shades from your ceiling lights with you remember to pack them.

Plan your arrival at your new house as much as you plan leaving the old one. Obviously it's beneficial to have your carpets fitted and rooms painted before you go if possible, but take time to think through every element of your arrival. Where will the driver park the van you hire? How far is it from the parking place to your new house? If you are moving into a flat, is there an elevator and does it work? Also consider the time you will arrive. If you have only viewed your new house at night, it's best to go during the day to see what the streets are like. Many areas of London change completely out with office hours.

Lastly, consider your evening meal. It might be best to eat out or order in on the night of your move. And remember to pack what you'll need for breakfast the next morning near the top of the boxes.
