Moving home can be one of life's most stressful events, packing up your worldly goods ready to move to a new property. 

Just imagine how the Camerons felt recently. The family expected to have a couple of months left at Number 10 before moving on to pastures new but the Conservative leadership race took a dramatic turn and in the end, the Camerons had a mere 48 hours to empty wardrobes, dismantle furniture and fill boxes.

It goes without saying that David and Samantha enlisted the help of professional packers and removal teams but still, swapping one home for another can be a testing time.

If you're close to completing on a new property, taking up a new tenancy or are at the start of your home moving journey, it's always good to remind yourself of what's involved on the actual moving day and in the first week at your new home.

This guide is a great place to start but if you need any more advice or removal recommendations, don't hesitate to contact North West London estate agents London Residential.
