As a professional moving company we see many of our clients, left wondering and desperately waiting for news from their solicitors and estate agents regarding the funds and the keys to their new home. Many solicitors and estate agents claim to be busy answering calls all day, instead their eating breakfast and lunch instead of transferring funds. This issue could lie with your solicitor or other solicitors further down the moving chain. The bigger the chain the longer it can take before the funds are transferred.

This can be a real pain for home buyers that are left waiting for updates by their solicitor and estate agents, while waiting with the removals company. Just imagine its late afternoon, soon closing time on a Friday and your funds still have not gone through, this could prove to be a disaster. Without the funds for your current home you can not buy your new home.


The point of the matter is, if any of these situations was to occur on a Friday the chances are you could be left without a home. This is due to fact that your solicitor or other solicitors have not transferred the funds in time, witch could result in a family not having a home. If you happen to move home on a Mon-Thurs the  very next day a representative will be available to assist you, but on a friday every business, solicitors and estate agents will closed early, leaving you stuck, this is some thing you should consider when moving home on a Friday or weekend, Leicester.

If you arrive at your new home on a Friday afternoon or evening and the gas, central heating or electricity is not working, the chances of getting it sorted out on a Friday at short notice is very slim. You could find your self with no heating or water right through the weekend, until Monday morning, This would not be a nice welcome into your new home, especially if you are moving home with children. Getting children settled in a warm and cosy home for their first night is vital. This will help them to get use to their new home and surroundings.

The perfect solution would be to arrive at your new home in time for unpacking, setting up beds and furniture, then settling down to warm hot chocolate in front of the tv. As a professional removal company, we know this is not always the case.

On the other hand you could be left sitting and waiting in your car, with your family, for several hours and with your removals company, This is the worst case scenario, when you do get the keys you are so tired from waiting, you no longer have it in you to unpack and get the beds put up etc. It will be the same for your removal company, as they would have sat there waiting for the keys to off load your household possessions into your new home. By 6-7 pm you would have not eaten much,  all that you’ll have on your mind, when you get the keys is crashing out and leaving the unpacking till the morning. Who said moving home was easy!

The thing is many people move home on Fridays, removal companies busiest days are Fridays and this is down to the estate agents and solicitors. While solicitors and estate agents are busy with calls there are many other people moving home in the same position as you
