We like to do it for the renters at Movebubble, which is why we’re always on the lookout for ways to help improve the overall renting experience. From our Renting Advice and Living in London pages to partnering up with like-minded brands, we’re always looking to make the lives of renters even easier.
Some of that advice might come in the form of knowing your rights about tenant fees, or how to get a head start in the rental market. Others include sourcing the best pet-friendly areas in London and the most affordable areas in the capital.
But do you know what really gets us super excited? When we can save renters money 💰 After all, the business of renting can be pretty costly, whether it’s security deposits, buying furniture or hiring a removal van for existing furnishings.
The Cost of Moving Stuff 🏠
Moving home is many things: exciting, stressful, chaotic, busy - you name it. Ultimately, it’s a great experience when you get the keys to your new home. But then you have to think about the actual task of moving.
If you’re bringing your own furniture, there is a good chance that you will need a removal van. The average cost of moving the contents of a two-bedroom flat is around £600, which is a fair amount to pay considering all the other outlays you have before moving in.
It’s slightly cheaper if you hire a van yourself and do the heavy lifting yourself. But, let’s face it, who wants to lug a three-seater sofa up and down flights of stairs on moving day? It’s always better when professionals can do the hard bits for you.

More Helpful Moving Tips
Of course, if you are about to move home, it’s good to have some basics covered before getting the big move underway. We’ve explored this in depth in our Making the Right Move post, but let's sum up the basics.
You certainly don’t want to rush moving, as doing so can lead to increased stress - and no one wants that. Start by doing some decluttering. Everyone loves themselves a bit of clutter, but you probably don’t need to take everything with you.
Make life as easy for yourself and the movers by doing some pre-measuring so that there are no nasty surprises when the bed doesn’t fit through the door frame. Being organised and having everything set out beforehand will give you and the removals team a much smoother moving process.
