In order to avoid unnecessary stress, you need to be prepared. Creating a moving checklist on paper or as an excel sheet is a great way to have everything down visually, so that you don’t have to remember anything. Your “to do” list should be divided into three parts. Firstly, you should write down the bigger tasks such as contacting utility companies to notify them of your change of address. Secondly, you should decide in advance what you will pack away with you, what you will donate, and what you will throw away. Finally, you should decide which courier company you will trust to take your belongings to your new home.
Choosing a Date
Plan well in advance for this date, as you’ll need to ensure that the courier company is available on that date. It can prove difficult to find a company on short notice, especially if you have large items such as white goods and furniture. Ideally, you should plan your move on a weekend or on days where you can take time off from work to pack. You should also ensure that you give this date to the electricity and gas provider, as not having gas and electricity switched on is not the best way to start out in your new home!
Make sure you have all your packing boxes before starting packing. Don’t forget to add ‘fragile’ labels to appropriate boxes, and make sure to label each box with a description of its content! Another useful tip is to place your boxes together according to which room they will go in your new house. This way, once your belongings are dropped off, you can start unpacking quickly.
