You have found the property that you want to buy and dates have been agreed for the exchange of contracts (which is when a legally binding contract comes into force) At this point you should make enquires for price quotes and availability with two or three removal companies to give you enough time to compare quotes and the services they offer, most removal companies offer a different range of service which can be a full packing service- where the removal teams pack everything - to a fragile pack where they only pack fragile items. There is a national Guild of Removers and Storers and they strongly recommend you choose a firm that is registered with the Removals Industry Ombudsman Scheme. Companies registered with the scheme are subject to inspection and must conform to certain standards. Be realistic about the quantity of furniture you have when getting a quote as this will decide the size of the van required and number of staff required on the day.
When the exchange of contracts has taken place you will now have a completion date (moving date) you should then confirm your booking with the removals firm or organise van hire if you are conducting the move yourself. Finally, as removal vans are usually very large it might be wise to warn your neighbours.
