MOVING TIP #22 – CREATE A STORAGE SPACE IN THE NEW HOUSE

If you are taking your time to unpack, rather than allocating colours for each room and spreading out the boxes, why not allocate one room that can house all boxes so that you can unpack at your leisure?

That way you don’t have to sit and look at boxes wherever you go – there’s nothing less relaxing!

Work out which way will be the least stressful for you, given the time you have etc…

 

MOVING TIP #23 – FAMILIARISE YOURSELF WITH YOUR NEW HOME ASAP

Whether the previous owners of your new house give you a welcome pack or not, it’s worth making the time to familiarise yourself with your new house asap.

You don’t want to have a power cut on the first night and not know where the trip switch is – or am alarm goes off without you knowing how to turn it off etc…

TIP – Try and ensure you have a contact number for the old owners and ensure that they know you will only phone if it’s something crucial to know.

 

MOVING TIP #24 – CHANGE THE LOCKS

This often goes missed, but changing the locks on your new house is a really good idea. After all – who knows who has a set of keys?

Better to be safe I always say…

 

MOVING TIP #25 – RELAX!

My husband and I have a tradition when moving house.

We open a bottle of champagne and get fish and chips for tea.

It’s the perfect end to a very long and tiring day – and really easy too!

Whatever makes you relax and feel at home – do it! – you deserve to enjoy your first night in your new home.

    Me and my family are moving next month and are dreading moving all of our stuff to the new house. I like your tip to consider moving some of the heavier furniture into storage when you move. That why you can worry about it later, and it won’t get in your way when moving everything else.

    Almost complete moving house checklist. Sorting out items first can help to know the number of boxes that will need. Always keep valuable items with you no matter how reliable the removals company.

    Often, relocation is a daunting task. But, with innovative and humorous ideas, you can make it stress-free. When you choose a professional moving company, you don’t have to worry about your belongings and heavy luggage. Pack some clothes in a colourful box for your children, it will keep them engaged and will be a matter of fun. Counting your luggage and boxes is your task; you must take care of it carefully.
