As a home removal company, we’ve seen lots of people struggle with a big move. Luckily, that also means we have plenty of advice to share. These tips can help you get through your upcoming move.
- Stopping hitting the market on your way home. Many people have more food in their kitchens than they can possibly eat, and that’s a real problem when it’s time to move. One of the toughest things to move is your food supply. About a month before you move, begin buying only what you need to use up what you have left. Then you can start shopping like you mean it after you get into your new home or flat.
- Don’t overpack boxes. It’s tough to decide what might go into each box, but be very careful as you make those decisions. Trying to fit one more thing in or choosing items that are simply too heavy for a given box always means trouble. The box could break on the way to the truck or into your new home, and if you have fragile items inside, they could suffer the consequences.
- If you have a pet, consider a pet care service for a few days before the move and a few days after. It can help to make his or her transition far less stressful.
- Think donation. As you begin to pack, you’ll find it’s the perfect time to get rid of lots of accumulated items. Declutter and donate what you don’t use to your favourite charity shop. They’ll thank you, and you’ll thank you when you don’t have to unpack items you don’t need.
