Moving Home Nightmares

Domestic, Commercial Removals & Self Storage Service, Fully Insured, Rayleigh & Langdon Hills


Bill remWhen moving house, things don’t always go as planned! Things can go awry for any number of reasons, and can be frustrating to say the least. A quick Google around and you can read some horror stories people have experienced while moving home.

One family were sitting in the removals van waiting for the go ahead to pick up the keys to their new home. The buyers of their old home arrived and began to unpack, and they all smiled and waved happily. On calling the estate agents they were told the vendors had not moved yet and needed more time. It was a sweltering summers day, and they couldn’t even go for a coffee as all their worldly goods were in the vehicles.

Another mover said that their completion fell through on the moving day, and along with the rest of the chain they had packed and moved out. All except the first person who caused the chaos by failing to inform anybody. They immediately had to organise emergency accommodation, and put everything into storage with no idea for how long.

These scenarios are unbelievably common, which is why moving is well known to be one of the most stressful life events. There’s enough to think about without having to negotiate delays and other problems. Movers should always check back frequently with their solicitor to make sure transfer of funds have gone through.

It’s also a good idea to hire a removals company that can offer some form of flexible storage. This means that if the worst happens in places like Rayleigh and Langdon Hills, there is an automatic solution available. At Billericay Removals we not only offer a second to none professional removals service, we also have some self storage containers. Clean, dry and secure they can be hired for a range of purposes including emergency storage of home contents!
