Did the movers come round and estimate the size of van, if so, and they were aware of all the items, then itโ€™s a bit rich

I always go in with a tape measure weeks before and measure everything, the tumble dryer is a schoolboy error

Everything else , sounds not good, but I can guarantee your place isnโ€™t as dirty as the one we moved into 4 years ago

Good luck, you will get there ๐Ÿ‘

Couldnt do me a favour and go and measure a house in Hertfordshire for me next week plse Phil could you ;)

Nope they wanted me to film the property and then they would google earth it due to covid so I did. They were useless however there was not much choice of companies and they had a good local reputation, well they did :). We did eventually negotiate a price which is higher than agreed but only by around ยฃ70 but still not impressed as I actually moved the garage including all my golf and fishign stuff as well as all electricals my self. Still all done

So have moved in, bit of a nightmare.

The wife's car broke down on the morning of the move. We loaded all the eletrical and high value stuff in to my estate and moved it to the in laws and the wife's are we were going to use, it wouldn't start even though it had the day before. It was parked in the removal men's way, managed to push it out the way. Luckily my Brother in Law is a mechanic and he fixed the issues that evening.

The removal men turned up with a too small van and said a 15 yard walk to the house was too far and refused to do the job. The owner rang and said ยฃ200 for another van and man or they were walking, at that time I was trying to push the focus away and said whatever. At least the removal men were decent. Completed by 12.30pm and in the new house by 15.30.

The Range cooker does not work, the dishwasher does not work, the alarm system has no codes or fob. The bespoke Fridge freezer area does not fit our fridge freezer. The bespoke tumble dryer space is too small for our tumble dryer no room for a vent, they had a condenser apparently.

Our other car got a puncture yesterday.

The new house has not been cleaned in 10 years, there was so much grease and dirt it was almost making us sick. Took 2 days of cleaning before we could unload.

Now to the good stuff, the new house is very big with lots of room, we have managed to unpack everything and built the new bed for the youngest and set up the study for work tomorrow and my eldest is fully set up ready for schooling.

I have never been as tired or stressed as in these last 4 days.

We have a new cooker coming Tuesday on my 50th Birthday.

Just waiting on replies from Estate Agents and Solicitors re the issues but not holding my breath.
All credit to you for posting this in the positivity thread and not random irritations (y)

I've not moved much at all BUT each time have left the place the cleanest it ever was whilst I lived there. I'd be mortified to leave it in a filthy state.

Weve booked cleaners for when we move this time already!
