Top Tips For Planning Your House Move Like A Pro
With the summer months approaching, more and more people are looking to finalise their home move so they are all moved in and decorated in time for the winter. This also gives families the time to get their children settled before the start of the new school year.
Taking the time to plan your home move effectively can make the whole moving process run a lot more smoothly. If you’re unsure of where to start when planning your home move, we’re here to help, here are a few of our top tips when it comes to moving house:
Read The Meters
One of the first things you should do before you start setting up all of your electronics is check the meter. You should ensure to check/take pictures of the meter readings, then share these readings with your new energy provider. This will prevent disputes over the usage when your first bill comes in.
The process of packing may seem quite daunting at first, especially when you realise just how many items/furniture you are going to have to move. This is why it’s important to plan what needs packing, categorise the objects so that you know what to unpack and in which order. If you don’t have the time to do this yourself, we provide a home packing service, saving yourself valuable time to prioritise other aspects of your home move.
Keeping The Kids Entertained While You Pack
Packing is by far one of the most boring and time-consuming stages when it comes to getting ready to move out, it can take even longer when you have little children distracting you. If your child is into art, you should allow them to decorate and write on the packing boxes. If you have unused bubble wrap, this can easily keep your child entertained for a little while. If your child is insistent on helping you pack, you should let them pack their own toys and any non-fragile items.
Book A Removal Service
If you are relocating to a new city or area, you’ll require the assistance of a removal company to transport all your goods. Although you may be able to convince your friends/family to help you move the smaller items when it comes to transporting heavy items such as furniture it’s probably best to use a removal service. Removal services can save you valuable time and reduce the risk of picking up an injury when it comes to hauling large/heavy items.
Update Your Address
When planning your move, you may be too focused on the transportation of your goods and how you are going to decorate your new interior, this may sidetrack you from informing the necessary bodies about your move. In order to save you some hassle, we have compiled a list of who you need to inform when you move house, you can then simply tick-off this list as and when you go through it.
