    Insights from a Moving Industry Expert – James Sanders

    As we become increasingly aware of our environmental footprint, it’s essential to consider eco-friendly practices in every aspect of our lives, including residential relocations. With over 35 years of experience in the moving industry, I understand the significance of sustainable and environmentally conscious choices during a move. Whether you’re relocating to the picturesque town of Cannock, the historic city of Lichfield, the tranquil town of Stafford, or the vibrant city of Birmingham, this article provides expert insights and practical advice on how to make your UK residential relocation eco-friendly.

    Sustainable Packing Materials

    Reuse Boxes

    Opt for recycled or reused cardboard boxes to reduce the demand for new materials. You can often find such boxes at local stores or through online classifieds.

    Eco-Friendly Cushioning

    Choose biodegradable packing materials like bubble wrap alternatives made from recycled or sustainable materials.

    Plastic Crate Rentals

    Consider renting reusable plastic crates instead of cardboard boxes, reducing waste and ensuring durability.

    Declutter and Donate

    Donate or Sell

    Before packing, declutter your home by donating or selling items you no longer need. This reduces the number of items you’ll need to transport.

    Charitable Donations

    Support local charities by donating furniture, clothing, and household items that are in good condition.

    Recycle Electronics

    Properly dispose of or recycle old electronics and appliances through designated recycling centers.

    Efficient Transportation

    Moving Truck Selection

    If you’re renting a moving truck, choose one with good fuel efficiency or consider hybrid options.

    Carpool with Movers

    If hiring a moving company like Cannock Removals, Lichfield Removals, Stafford Removals, or Birmingham Removals, inquire about carpooling with other clients to reduce the number of vehicles used.

    Eco-Friendly Movers

    Look for moving companies that have adopted eco-friendly practices, such as using biodiesel or electric vehicles.

    Energy and Utilities

    Notify Utility Providers

    Contact your utility providers well in advance to ensure a responsible disconnection of services at your old residence.

    Reduce Energy Consumption

    Before leaving, unplug appliances and electronics to save energy during your final days at your old home.

    Switch to LEDs

    If you’re leaving behind light fixtures, consider replacing traditional bulbs with energy-efficient LED bulbs.

    Eco-Friendly Cleaning

    Environmentally Friendly Cleaning

    Use eco-friendly cleaning products when cleaning your old residence before leaving.

    Dispose of Chemicals Safely

    If you have hazardous cleaning chemicals, dispose of them properly according to local regulations.

    Recycle and Reuse

    Recycle or reuse packing materials as much as possible to minimize waste.

    Eco-Conscious Unpacking

    Unpack Smartly

    Unpack efficiently to reduce waste and ensure that all packing materials are properly recycled or disposed of.

    Eco-Friendly Home Setup

    Embrace eco-conscious practices in your new home, such as using energy-efficient appliances and reducing water usage.

    Offset Your Carbon Footprint

    Consider planting a tree or supporting reforestation efforts to offset the environmental impact of your move.

    Amazing service!! Without James and his team, my move probably wouldn't have happened. They got me out of a tight spot at really short notice thanks to solicitors not exchanging contracts until 4 days before my move Extremely professional set up from the minute they arrived, throughout the whole day up until they left. They took great care with my furniture and other possessions and so skilled In getting everything into my brand new build property without causing any damage. I would recommend them in a heartbeat to anyone needed a professional, reliable and caring removals firm at a very reasonable price. For anyone moving in and around Staffordshire Moving Circles are the 👌

    James & team recently helped us move house - we cannot fault the service and would highly recommend. James was really professional from the outset and also very flexible when our completion date kept moving around (unlike many other removal companies). The team that turned up on the day to support the move was also great - efficient and worked really hard throughout the move day. Moving Circles was also highly competitive in their pricing. Thank you Moving Circles - would definitely work with your team again in future!

    We used Moving CIrcles for our recent move and I am so glad that we did . From the very first consultation right through to the actual move, I cannot fault the service that we received. The guys that did the move were very friendly and professional throughout, nothing was damaged and everything was put where we asked. I would highly recommend James and the team who certainly went above and beyond to ensure a smooth move. Thank you so much.
    How much do movers cost for a two bedroom apartment uk?

    How much does a removal service cost when moving flat? On average, the removal cost for a 2 bedroom flat will usually cost somewhere in the range of £315 and £500, plus VAT.

    How much do you tip movers?

    A good rule is to give £20-£25 to each person from the moving team for a half-day. If they have been working for the entire day, it might be reasonable to give them £40 to £50 for their efforts. A little extra would be nice if they have been taking heavy items up and down the stairs.

    What is the most expensive day to Move?

    Tuesday is the most expensive day to move house. If you're choosing your moving date primarily for financial reasons, then Sunday is the best day to move house for you. Book your removal company in advance and compare removal companies to ensure you're getting the best possible deal for your removal costs.
