my expertise in the industry
I am a passionate remover who actively campaigns for longer time between exchange and completion, to give customers time to prepare properly for their move. As well as their utility providers who need at least 3 - 4 weeks notice to switch over their services, removal companies need time to plan the logistics of a house removal properly. If the customer is told by estate agents or conveyancers not to contact their removal company until exchange of contract, this very often only gives the removers a few days notice. Would you expect the carriers of your worldly goods, which cost you tens of thousands of pounds, to have just 3 days notice? Well good luck with that!
Removal companies can get booked up weeks in advance, especially during the busy summer season, and school holidays like Easter and Christmas, therefore giving them as much notice as possible is vitally important if you or your client want to move with a good company. The best removers have a good reputation and will get booked up the quickest, so the more time a customer has between exchange and completion the better. The less time between exchange and completion the more likely it is the good removal companies will be booked up, and customers will be scrabbling around at the last minute trying to find someone who can accommodate, and within their budget, and for things to go wrong.
A period of at least 2 - 3 weeks between exchange and completion, if not longer, makes sence for everyone. So please let your clients know to advise their conveyancing solicitors that is what they want at the start of their conveyancing process.
