Moving home is a pretty stressful life event, although it is incredibly exciting there is so much to think about and plan for. Which, can get on top of you and leave you feeling more than just a little bit flustered.
As experts in all things moving, we have put together our guide on how to make moving all the easier for you.
Make a list of everything that you need to do
Moving home takes a lot of planning, which means that one of the best things that you can do for yourself is to make a list of all the things that you need to do and the order that it might be best to do it in. Having a list is a great way to make sure that you have everything that you need, that you know what you need to do and that you have a plan in mind of how it is going to work.
Declutter before you pack
If you are in a rush to get moving, then chances are that you might be tempted to just pack up your old house and sort things out in your new house once you are moved in. However, this means that you will be moving things that you don’t need to take with you, It is a much better idea to take the time to declutter as you pack up your old house, that way, when you unpack the other end, you will have less to worry about doing and you can instead settle in your new home and enjoy it.
Clean up as you go
No-one likes to move into a dirty house, so, it is always a good idea to factor in time to clean up your old home as you leave. If a room is packed up, it might not hurt giving it a clean, even if you go back over it when the entire house is empty.
It is never too early to start
You might think that it is best to leave the packing to the last minute; however, it is a much better idea to start as early as you can. This means that you will have plenty of time to do a good job and you won’t have to rush around worrying about how much you have to do later on when you really are short on time.
Pick the right removal firm
Whilst you may be able to move yourself, there comes a time when you may have to admit that the best thing to do is have a little professional help. This is particularly true if you have to move a long way or you have lots of big items to take with you. It is important to pick the right removal company as you will want someone who is going to be able to move things quickly and also treat your belongings with care.
