What To Do When Moving House

Whether or not it’s your first time taking the plunge, it can be difficult to know what to do when moving house or office. Even with the best plans in place, you still need to have companies working alongside you that you know you can trust.

Moving house is known to be one of the most stressful tasks you can undertake, but you can be assured that there are services available to take some of the weight off your shoulders… Having worked within the removals industry since 2013 and grown into one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of skates and dollies, we’re proud to count Evo Supplies among the list of businesses that can offer solutions to tackle even the most difficult of home, or office, moves.

Our range of skates includes options to suit all scenarios – some of our skates, like the Mighty Mover, can even help shift items weighing up to one tonne, while at the other end of the scale, our smallest dolly and Non-Slip Dolly with Handle are affordable ways to move boxes, plant pots and much more. There are few removals tasks we can’t help to make that little bit easier. We can even create customised skates to meet your particular challenges, so if you have a specific task on the cards, let us know and we can work with you to find a solution.

Each of our products gets the Evo seal of approval, from the UK-made skates manufactured right here in our Mersea Island-based workshop, to the Hello Dollies range designed by us and created in our partner factory. Nothing leaves our premises without a full quality inspection, meaning any and all items we send out meet our exacting standards, every time.

Our loyal customers agree that Evo Supplies skates are invaluable in helping the removals process roll that much smoother – check out what they have to say about our dollies and services on Trustpilot and on our Testimonials page.

If you’re working with a removals company, it’s always recommended that you ‘do your homework’ to ensure that you’re engaging a business you can have full confidence in. After all, you’re entrusting your home, furniture and precious possessions to them. If you can, have them visit you to chat through your requirements, answer your questions and allow you to establish whether they’re going to suit you. It may be tempting to simply go with the cheapest offering, but it’s far more important to make sure that all your criteria are met, that your fragile and valuable possessions will be handled correctly, and that the company and its crew are fully insured.

One first step we recommend that you take on your removals journey, and a simple way to search for suitable suppliers, is to visit Move Assured, of which we are a proud affiliate member. On their website, you can browse through independent removals and storage companies in your area – all checked and accredited by Move Assured – and easily link through to their individual websites and services. What’s more, each company’s profile features reviews and testimonials from real customers, helping you to build an accurate picture of what you can expect, and make an informed decision. The Move Assured blog offers advice and answers to a wide range of house-moving questions.

Those preparing to move, or in the process of moving, should also look to Help for Movers, well known in the industry as the essential guide to moving house. Moving expert Lisa’s award-winning booklet provides a unique insight into ‘how to do it right’, offering advice on all aspects of the experience to make the moving process less stressful. The handy, step-by-step guide contains invaluable tips, checklists, reminders and more to help keep you organised and on track. Preparation is key when it comes to a removals project and the Help for Movers guide is a very worthwhile investment.
