If you want to make moving from one property to another easier, then follow the savvy advice below.
Hire a removal service
Hiring a removal service is crucial when you are moving house for several reasons. The first is that you can get so much more in a van, which means fewer trips to your new property. Additionally, the service can help you lift the heavier items which means much less risk of injury, and will leave you with plenty of energy left for unpacking.
Sadly, a full removal team can be an expensive investment indeed. Although, there are more reasonably priced alternatives like hiring a Man and Van instead. Indeed, a Man and Van is usually much cheaper and will afford you all the benefits mentioned above, making your house move as simple and stress-free as possible.
Invest in sturdy boxes
One of the most vital things you will need for a successful move is sturdy boxes in which to pack all your items. Indeed, robust boxes and containers offer many advantages including peace of mind that your possessions will be stored as safely as possible during the chaos of the move.
However, do remember to buy mostly middle-sized and small boxes, because large boxes when full can be very hard to lift and manoeuvre. Instead smaller boxes filled with heavier items like books and DVDs will be much easier to manage during moving-out day.
Remember your mental health
Moving is stressful, no matter how well you plan and are organised. To that end, recognising this and accounting for it is your best bet. This means making sure you get a little self-care in amongst the chaos of the move like taking regular rest breaks and staying hydrated.
Also in the lead-up to the move, making sure you have fun and easy-to-do things to break up the packing process and take your mind off things can help. A good TV show to binge, or a movie each evening, once you have completed your packing tasks for the day, can work wonders.
Say goodbye to your old place
Love it or hate it, it's important to say goodbye to your old home and neighbourhood. This is especially the case when you have friends living around you that you will miss when you move. Of course how you do this is entirely up to you. You may wish to throw a party to say goodbye to everyone, or you could just head out to your favourite restaurant and grab a bite to eat. Just be sure to mark the occasion as it can help make the transition that much smoother.
Unpack as fast as possible
Last of all, when moving to a new property it makes so much sense to get unpacked and settled in as quickly as you can. That is not to say that you need to rush things, but leaving rooms stuffed with half-unpacked boxes, and not knowing where anything is will affect your first experience in your new home. To that end if you are looking to settle in as quickly as possible, getting unpacked fast makes perfect sense.
