Property Access

If you live in a property that is classed as difficult to access, then you will already know that tasks that are considered simple for some people are made a whole lot more difficult for you. Whether it’s carrying your shopping into your home or parking your car on the drive, if your property is hard to access then even simple tasks can become a lot more complicated. Moving house, then, is quite high up the ladder of difficult tasks, so it is important that you know exactly what you need to do in order to make your move as simple as possible.

There are a number of types of property that can be classed as hard to access – properties that are on uneven terrain such as hillsides, mountains or farmland, often require specialist vehicles or methods to move in and out of. If there are inclement weather conditions, such as heavy snow or ice, these properties can be even more difficult to reach. Removal companies often use large vehicles in their work, so any narrow roads or tricky ground can often be impossible for them to navigate.

If you live in a hard to access property or you are thinking of moving into one, it does not mean that you cannot use removal companies to help you with your move. However, many removal companies may have different policies when it comes to hard to access properties, and as such they may charge more. This is because they may be required to use different vehicles such as quad bikes for off-road terrain, or even boats for houses on islands, for example. Before you commence your move to or from a hard to reach property, make sure you are aware of the different policies that removal companies have for these types of removals.

Something to consider when planning a move like this is the time it may take for the project to be completed. These jobs can be very tricky, and as such they make take considerably longer than a normal relocation. It may be worth considering some temporary storage for some of your belongings, too.
