Well, my new buyer has instructed a solicitor who has been in touch with mine and hopefully a draft contract will be shared soon. With my purchase my solicitor has got a draft contract and is just double checking and clarifying some things.
I feel so much better! My daughter commented this week that I was finally back to myself and I agree. All the usual aches and pains, if anything worse as I finally felt like doing stuff, but then that's my normal!
I've had some removal quotes - all local of various sizes with one - three branches.
1 - all done over the phone/on-line with the help of some videos from me because they "don't do visits", most expensive. £1,410
2 - Which Trusted Trader, bit of sales banter, pack and move me all on one day, no name of foreman/main contact given. £1,128 directed me to check out their on-line reviews.
3- Choice of doing everything on one day or packing the day before the move, happy to get stuff out of my loft. Gave me a name of the foreman, cheapest £996
4- One branch, noted my special pieces of furniture (without me saying anything), suggested packing the day before the move as that would be easier for me. Loft no problem. £1,230 gave me a list of past clients I could email to get their reviews.
And on the fun side I've bought a couple of pieces for my "forever home" as my daughter is calling it.
