On average, a person moves home more than eight times across their lifetime, and currently, we are approaching the busiest times of year to do this. There are several common drawbacks when moving but using a little bit of organisation and essential preparation; they are simple to avoid. We here are A1 Removals Plymouth will help show you the way you can make your move brighter and a whole lot less stressful. When it comes to moving house, it does all come down to preparation. It is staggering to think that almost 30 per cent of homeowners looking to move, plan their move just a week in advance. One of the most significant factors when planning a move is to minimise the disruption it can cause in your everyday life.
Start with rooms such as your living
room and be sure to pack items you are confident you will not need on a daily
basis. Do not overlook the small and seemingly insignificant things, it may
seem obvious. Still, we have seen it many times when someone has packed their
television away and forgotten to include the remote control! The average home
in the UK fits into around 85 boxes and 30-35 bin liners. Be sure to mark your
boxes and measure all essential pieces of furniture to make your and your
moving companies’ life much easier when assembling items in your new home. It
will also go a long way in reducing your stress on the big day.
On your moving day, you need to decide what is right for your family. If you have children or pets, give some thought on whether it might be worth seeing if someone could take care of them during the moving process. Upset children and frightened pets can take a toll on anyone while moving their lives into a new home. You need to be able to focus 100% on the moving process, and these niggles can get in the way and only increase stress on the day. It is also advised, when a moving company is removing your items, that all walkways and entrances/exits are completely clear, allowing for more accessible transportation of goods. Be sure to pack your valuables in a separate case and to keep items like jewelry, relevant documents and passports in their own folder or holder.
It’s always a difficult conversation to
have, but make sure you are only taking the most important belongings to your
new home. The last thing you want to deal with is clutter when assembling your
items in your new home. Don’t be afraid to give a few boxes of unnecessary
clutter to a charity shop.
If you’ve planned and prepared well, then the moves gone smoothly so remember to enjoy it’s a special moment savour it you’ve worked hard for it. Still, our final tip is to know exactly where your bed linen is and make your bed as soon as you arrive because at the end of the day, you’re going to be exhausted and you won’t want to do it then.
