There are many things that you need to consider and put in place in order to ensure your move is successful, and less stressful.
So if you are in the process of preparing to moving home, below are some tips on where to start.
Consider your Budget For Your Move
The first thing you need to plan is your overall budget for the move, the physical cost of moving. You need to consider how much it is going to cost to pay for the removal, legal costs, cleaning costs, etc. Once you have researched the average costs, you will have a much clearer idea on how much your budget is.
Finding a removals company
This is an important one. No matter how efficient you think you are, the reasons for using a professional Cheap removal man and van are vast - make sure you book one well in advance! Removal companies will provide the van, they will load furniture, white goods, equipment and boxes for you. They’ll drive everything to your new home and unload and even place things into the correct room.
Clean and declutter
Cleaning and preparing the house is an essential - declutter as much as possible, before you even start packing your belongings, you should decide what to sell, donate or throw out. By decluttering, you'll save time and you will also keep your removal costs down.
Pack in advance if you can
Get yourself organised, make a start on packing as soon as you can (as soon as you have a move date), trust me there is always more to do/pack than anticipated, so if you are ahead with your packing, this will take a lot of pressure off and even save you some time in the long run.
Pack absolutely everything you can into boxes, and label the boxes, so when you’re taking boxes from the van into your new home, you already have yourself organised. It will make unpacking so much easier.
Take your time on the day
Moving day is a big deal and it can be exhausting. You’re not going to get all the unpacking done by the first night. It will take time to fully unpack and get your new home looking just the way you want it. Take your time to unpack, as long as you have your bed set up, the fridge plugged in, the rest can take its time to come together.
