Top tips when moving house
Congratulations, you’ve agreed on a move date! Moving house is a stressful and expensive ordeal. But what if we could save time and money?
The average person spends two days packing for a move, but with the right tools you can do it in less than an hour. Check out these essential moving hacks to help you streamline your packing process. It can be difficult to find the time to pack all of your belongings before moving. Luckily, with our ideas, you can streamline your packing process and ensure that you don’t forget anything.
So now you’ve decluttered, recycled, decided what you need to keep, and packed the boxes, how do you get them to your new home? With a removal company, you can take all the stress away. They will load all your furniture and boxes, and drive them to your new house. And, most importantly, take them into your new house when you get there. I can tell you, there is nothing worse than having to unload your car or hire van yourself, whilst trying to get everything organised in your new home.
What these removal companies provide is invaluable when it comes to moving house. They will take care of everything for you, leaving you free from the stress of moving house yourself.
If you are looking for a great removal company in the London area, then look no further. The Man Van London will provide you with all of your needs no matter how big or small they are. They will transport your boxes and furniture to their destination, and take the utmost care with them. A great benefit of this company is that if you actually only have a few belongings (perhaps moving from your parents to a new build), but still want the safety and reduced stress that a removal company offers, you have the options of how many people you want to help you. This could be a great way to use a removal company on a budget.
When you eventually get to your new home, make sure you have all your lists ready. Make sure all the movers know exactly which room they should be putting which box in. Also, make sure you have plenty of drinks available. Bottled water and cups of tea are great for everyone to keep hydrated on moving day.
The first step should always be to take a look around the house and figure out what needs to be unpacked first. It can be a chaotic experience, but it’s important to know what items should be put away first. For example, kids toys that only get played with at Christmas don’t need to be unpacked straightaway. Towels, bedding, toiletries and kitchen equipment are a must.
With a good plan, it’ll become easier to manage all of your belongings. So you need to make sure you have enough space for everything. If you don’t, make sure you keep things organised as much as possible so that it won’t affect your day-to-day life. So, prior to your move, get all your storage sorted. If you know you are moving to a home with a small kitchen, get to Ikea and buy lots of space saving products. Things like stacking boxes and racks for the insides of cupboard doors, are a lifesaver in a small space. Likewise, if you know you have a good sized bedroom, you won’t want to have large empty spaces. Get your furniture ordered before you move in, and once you have spent a weekend building flatpack, you know you’ll be sorted.
The key for all house moves is to be organised and calm. Ensure you have everything listed and written down, and planned. Removal companies need notice, but likewise can be flexible if your dates fall through at the last minute. Make sure you keep communicating with your removal company, your solicitor, and your estate agent. Don’t panic, and everything will be just fine.
