Despite the stats on moving houses, uprooting yourself from a place and starting all over is a bit intimidating. There are so many things to do before you can leave a place. Being organized and planning in advance is going to be your saving grace!
Here are some tips to reduce stress when moving house:
Choose a residential moving company early on
Leaving this important task for later on can cause problems with booking dates for the moving company you choose. When looking for a professional moving business, make sure you choose a reputable service. Such businesses have experienced staff. They are efficient and effective when it comes to packing and transporting your belongings. The more popular the company you choose, the earlier you would need to make a booking.
Make a moving checklist
It’s impossible to remember every little detail relating to moving house. You’re bound to miss out on things. Draw up a comprehensive checklist to make your move seamless. The list you make should include things that need to be done along with a running timeline. Download an app that can help with the whole moving process, such apps send reminders which are very helpful.
Declutter well in advance
A cluttered space can make you feel anxious and claustrophobic. If there’s too much going on in your current home, it can clog your thoughts. Make sure you do away with the things around your home you no longer need. Assemble all such items and give it away to charity. This helps reduce the number of belongings you’re taking to your new home and it can help you save some money on the moving company too.
Plan B for items that can’t be moved
There are certain items in your home that a moving company won’t be able to transport for you. Hazardous materials, plants in soil, tins of chemicals like paint are such examples. Prepare to donate such items or sell it to some new owners.
If you aren’t willing to leave your kitchen garden and plants behind, uproot the plant and transfer it to a pot with soil. Invest in plastic pots; these are easily available at home improvement stores. It makes plants less weighty and reduces the total weight of your belongings.
