Top 10 last-minute questions to ask sellers

To make your life easy, remember to ask the previous owner these questions:

Where’s the main stopcock (to shut off the water)?

Where are the gas and electricity meters?

Do any surfaces need special cleaning products, eg wooden floors?

What day are the bins collected?

Do you have any old tins of paint in the same colour as the walls?

Do you have any instruction manuals or warranties on electrical items?

Where did the kitchen and bathroom tiles come from?

Where did any fixed furniture come from, eg, kitchen cabinets?

Which company supplies the energy, broadband and home phone?

Where is the thermostat?

Compare removal costs

If you’re moving without any furniture, (eg, from your parents’ home, or you’ve been renting a furnished property), a car and a couple of mates will suffice. Even if you think you have a lot of stuff, hiring a van for a couple of hours might work out cheaper than a removal company.

Answer Simple Questions

To tailor your estimate we’ll ask you simple questions including the size of your current space and the amount of stuff in that space.

Determine Length of Move

Since we bill hourly for local moves, these questions help us determine how long it will likely take to complete the move.


You know what they say: an ounce of preparation is worth a pound of packing tape. When you reserve your moving date, we’ll send a questionnaire via email to make sure we didn’t miss any crucial details regarding the move itself, including the information to the right.

Any specialty items you have to move, like gun safes, motorcycles, or grand pianos.

How much disassembly and re-assembly we need to do (think beds, desks, and other large items that won’t fit through the door without a fight).

Any access issues for our truck and crew? Is your new driveway a mile long? Paved in gravel? On a steep grade? Let us know.

Any in-house navigation issues we might have, like narrow doorways or tight corners.

If any of your belongings–grand pianos, glass cabinets, priceless antiques passed down in your family for generations–need special care and protection, so we’ll know to bring the materials and equipment we need to move them safely.
