Top Tips To Make
Your House Move Easier
There is no getting around it. We will all have to move house at some point in our lives. It is rumoured to be among the most stressful things in a person’s life, along with death, marriage and divorce! Moving house can be hard work, but there are ways that you can make your house move in Peterborough easier.
With many years managing house removals in Peterborough, we have lots of experience. We would like to share just some of our many top tips to make your house move easier in this blog post. Moving house may still be stressful, but it will be a lot easier if you follow these tips.
People moving house will often have about 4-8 weeks notice of their moving date. This gives you time to get organised. Don’t leave it all until the last minute. Think about contacting your utility companies and changing your address. Will you be taking all your furniture with you? If not, what are you doing with your furniture? There are lots of things to consider when moving house and this is just one reason you can’t leave it until the last minute.
When you are moving house it is a great opportunity to de-clutter and clear out those unwanted items. We all hoard things over time, some of us hoard more things than others. If you have something in your home you haven’t used or looked at for years, is there any point taking it to your new home? You will be saving yourself time and money but getting rid of these unwanted items. You could have a garden sale, go to the local car boot sale, drop it at the charity shop, sell it on line or hire a skip.
Challenge yourself to pack a set amount a week. If you have 5 rooms in your house and 5 weeks to the moving date then challenge yourself to pack one room a week. Try and start with the rooms that are used the least. It is important that you leave out the essential items such as medicines, toiletries and the kettle! Think about packing items too. You’ll need boxes, tape, bubble wrap and more. We can supply you with all the packaging materials you need – just drop us a line.
