If you're in the process of moving house you'll know how much there is to organise and are probably starting to feel a little stressed out!
We all know that moving house doesn't always go to plan. In fact, sometimes it can go drastically off plan, and the move might not even happen at all (for example if your exchange or completion is delayed or your home purchase falls through). While this is rare, it does happen occasionally - and if you're moving with a professional removals company, depending on how close to the move date you are when you have to cancel, it can cost you a lot of money.
If you are moving house and are evaluating or comparing removals quotes the company may have discussed a 'late key waiver' with you. This waiver allows you to pay a small amount to protect you against the possible additional charges you would incur if anything delays the time you have access to your new home on move day.
Even with the most careful planning, sometimes there will be delays on move day as some things are out of your control.
