Here are a couple of things that can have an impact on the cost of your home move:

Being on a high floor without any lift

Garden items

When taking a look around your home, it’s so easy to forget the garden and miss it out from your quote. Additional items like garden furnishings or a shed full of tools is immediately going to increase your costs.
Work out in advance whether you prepare to take specific structures (greenhouses, sheds, play houses, climbing frames) with you when you move, and whether you’ll be dismantling them yourself.
