Moving house can be both an exciting and stressful time, and it can be one of the most daunting experiences we go through in our lifetime. Committing all our worldly belongings to a move and then trusting a reputable trader to be responsible for them, and organising your removal can be a minefield.
1. Make A List
Make sure you are prioritizing what you need to have done and give yourself deadlines. There is a lot to consider when moving house.
Your services will need to be switched over of potentially changed all together and different providers have different change over time frames.
2. Sort Through your Belongings
Give yourself enough time to sort through your belongings and decide what you need and what you have just been holding on to. We all do it, keep things for years on end promising ourselves that we will make time to use it.
This is your best chance to treat yourself to a fresh start.
3. Hire A Reputable Removal Company
You need to ensure you goods are being handled by trained, recognized professionals that will handle your goods with care. We also need to be sure that those handling your removal are recognized by your home insurance. By choosing a member of a trade association you can be assured of this.
