Moving house is never fun – in fact, most psychologists rate it as one of the more stressful events in a lifetime. If you’re moving house, let us offer you a few moving tips to make the process go more smoothly. This moving help may not ease the physical burden, but it may at least ease the stress.
When it’s time to move from one house to another, you don’t want to drag things along that you won’t have space for or need at your new place. Take a good hard look at your belongings, and decide if you have the time or space to deal with them at your new location. Sort out anything that you may not have room for at your new home, and donate anything that you think you may not be able to use. You’ll be grateful for the space, especially if you’re moving to a smaller location.
If you plan to use professional movers, set up an area in your home for items that you don’t want them to move. Items like bedding, toiletries, special stuffed animals for the children, and other special things you’ll want to have access to quickly at the new home will need to go in your vehicles. Otherwise, you may not have access to them for a good little bit after the move, as you often don’t regain access to your belongings immediately after your move. This fact can prove frustrating for individuals if they’re not aware of it, so it’s wise to set aside these items in advance if possible.
If you get a chance, visit your new home and set up the house a bit before moving in. Figure out which rooms you’d like to use for which purposes, and where you’d like to put which items of furniture. In addition, take the time to measure carefully to ensure that the furniture that you currently have will fit in the rooms of the home. For example, some rooms will fit a King sized bed, while others will only fit a Full or a Twin. This is an important thing to note before moving, in case you’ll need to sell your existing furniture and purchase new furniture before moving in. In addition, take the time to turn on the utilities, so that everything is up and running for move in day.
