Packing and Moving
When you are first thinking of moving, even if you don't have a date, call Black Diamond Removals to find out how much it will cost you to move

The most important thing to do, once you have your moving date, is to call and book your moving day. Please don't leave it to the last minute, as you will be disappointed


Start to de-clutter, don't take anything with you that you don't want or need as this will take time to move and therefore cost you money for something that you will, most probably, throw out when you start unpacking at your new home


Organise your free council kerbside pickup, this will encourage you to have a good clean out prior to your move


If you are packing yourself, we advise you to use removal cartons. Don't pack in boxes you collect from your local supermarket or grocer. At the end of the day, it will save you time on your removal job and therefore money when you pack in our removal cartons. You may think it is costing you more to buy boxes, but if you pack in the same size cartons, it will take our team members less time to move you and therefore you will save on your removal costs


Don't start packing too far in advance as this will make the whole process seem to drag on for an eternity. We advise you to start packing about 2 weeks in advance. As you pack a box, dedicate somewhere in your home to put your packed boxes, don't leave them scattered throughout your home. If you would like to use our pre-packing service, we can have your home packed with two members of our team in 2 to 6 hours, depending on the size of your home


On your moving day, one of our trucks and the members of our moving team will arrive at your home. Our team members will introduce themselves to you and ask you to sign their worksheet, accepting the truck and our employees on to your property, they will then take a walk through your home. They will make your moving day a positive experience with their great sense of humour and lightheartedness. We are happy for you to help take your belongings out of your home but it takes our experience movers to load and stack the truck


Once the truck is loaded we will head straight to your new home. If you can allocate a person to stay at the back of the truck or just near the entrance to your home, you will be able to direct our team members where you would like them to place your furniture and belongings.


Before we close up the truck a member of the team will ask you to look in the back of the truck to confirm it is empty and none of your possessions are left behind, you will be asked to sign off on this task.


Before our team leaves you for the day, they will ensure you are happy with where all your furniture and belongings are placed and make sure you wouldn't like to make last minute changes.
