During a visit to your new home, take time for a detailed check on security. A few notes on essentials, door and window locks, broken gates to be fixed, whatever is needed. Arrange for fitting on the day, or buy items in advance if you are doing this.
Without preparation, easy to feel that leaving the home unattended is impossible, which may not be practical. Even so, not a bad idea to be vigilant for the first few days, particularly if people you don't know well are coming and going.
We are not trying to paint a dark picture, crime is rarer than often imagined but property crime is more common within the house moving cycle. Equally, being aware of security precautions when you move will make the process feel safe.
A final note, make sure members of the family of all ages know the address and travel routes they can use. We wish you a safe and secure move, if you feel we can help, try our Guildford removals branch, or Surrey domestic removals for the wider area.
