Moving house is such an exciting time – if it is your first home it is even more exciting as you get your first step onto the property ladder. But it is also one of those life events that can be very stressful. There is so much to deal with and lots going on and sometimes it can be difficult to think of anything else! Here are some of the best tips to make sure that your house move goes as smoothly as possible…
Plan Well – Making a list and planning well in advance is crucial. Sit down early on and think of everything that needs to be done – whether it is renovation work, informing gas and electricity suppliers and packing, write down everything and then create a timeline in which to do these jobs.
Pack Smart – Packing is one of the least favoured jobs of moving, but if it is done well and in an organised manner it can reduce the stress levels greatly. Make sure that all of your boxes are clearly labelled by contents as well as which room they belong in to ensure that things can easily be found at the other end.
Book Services Early – To ensure that you have everything ready for moving day, make sure that you book the things you need with as much advance notice as possible from removals companies to carpet fitters. You may also be needing the services of a self storage company if there is a gap between you moving out and moving in. For self storage Chorley you may want to use self storage company Leakers for example – make sure that you book early with your chosen service.
