A Guide to DIY Home Removals


Moving house can be very stressful at the best of times, and while it is a good idea to leave it to the professionals, the cost can be very high. If you are able bodied and have a few family members to assist with the move, hiring a van and handling the relocation will save you a lot of money.

Sourcing a Van Hire Company

There are local companies that offer car rental in Melksham who also have a range of Luton vans that are ideal for moving house, and with unlimited mileage and a special weekend deal that allows you to use the van from Friday afternoon right through to Monday morning, you have time to complete the project.


The key to a stress-free move is the packing, and taking a leaf out of the professional’s book, label all boxes, clearly noting the contents, and more importantly, what room the box should be taken to. Packing materials should include:

  • A few rolls of tape
  • Labels
  • Marker pens
  • Rope for securing the load
  • Study cardboard boxes (you can never have enough)
  • Scissors

You can pack in two stages; the first involves items that are not in use, then as the day of the move nears, pack the rest of your things.

Order a Skip

It is only when you pack everything up that you realise just how much junk you have accumulated over the years, and the best way to deal with this is to hire a small skip, which will soon be filled to capacity.
