We’d like to know the origin and destination of your move, and most importantly the reason of your move. How did you experience that?

I did not have a home in the UK and I had to go back to my country. I had to look for a quick support and it had to be easy and available through email. I could do most of the work online somebody picked up the furniture and it happened very quickly. The communication was easy and I could do it all alone because I do not know anybody in the UK. I had to leave this country and the process of leaving this place need to get done very fast. I had been living in a student accommodation and I was alone for the most of my time.

Choosing a good moving company is painful, we know that. How did you manage to find the perfect one among the thousands of existing ones?

I had to move out of my room very quickly and I needed somebody who answered my wishes quickly. The moving process needed to get to done fast and I was pleased to have such a fast delivery service. It was expensive but quick and flexible and I needed not much support from other people. In the UK I do not know many people I have been living alone and isolated in this country. I am pleased to get access to a fast moving company and the process could be organized from my home. I did not have any parcels or boxes or I did not know much about moving. around.

Take us through the moving day – did everything go as planned?

I had to organize boxes which was not easy and I had not expectations nor moving experience. I thought I could stay here forever, but Brexit made it hard for me. I have only a pre settlement status but I do not know if I could stay or if I have a future here. However, in my country I can stay without a visa and there is my family and some friends. Here I had to do all alone. The packing was difficult because of the boxes who were hard to carry around. Last but not least it was expensive. I look forward when I am at home and my things will be arriving.

What are 3 tips that you think could help others make their moving day less chaotic?

It is hard to find the shape of your boxes what can you take with you and what should be go to the bin. It is better for the environment to move things back to your country. Think about what is really important and what should not go to the bin. What can be donated and ask in a local church or social well-being service what they might need for homeless people. Call the British homeless or a local charity what they really need and what could you take to them directly. However, what do you need for your future and what can be donated only the rest goes to the bin. And take food and spices to a local shop or to a chef who can need those things.
