The paperwork is signed, the keys for your dream home are in your hand and now you have to move all those boxes and bits of furniture from the old place to the new. It may look like a lot of hard work but never fear, it’ll never take as long as you think or be too disastrous if you go about it in the right way.
Moving is widely regarded as one of the most stressful activities a person can go through. However by planning everything carefully and prioritising accordingly you can overcome this stress easily. The first tip would be to locate your ideal mover, this company or individual should be able to accommodate all your needs and should have no trouble finding your current house or your new one. The perfect partner for removals in Cambridge, York, London or Liverpool could be just around the corner so long as you search for them in a proactive manner and shop around for the best deal. Open your mind to the possibility of a man with a van and you may well be set; a Cambridge van man will be likely to find his way around the city well, knowing the shortcuts around the traffic and tourist spots and be willing to offer a helping hand for those heavy bits and pieces.
With a bit of pre-planning, things are likely to go much more smoothly. For example you may want to plan packing heavy items at the bottom of boxes, placing lighter things on top and not over packing boxes to reduce the stress of unpacking later on. Once boxes are packed, labelling them clearly with what they are, which room they are from and which room they are going to be put in can also be a great help when it comes to unloading from your removals van. You may also want to avoid placing important documents in hard to reach boxes and making sure your kettle is close by.
It is also a good idea to be prepared for your removals day by ensuring children and pets are taken care of by someone who is not going to be a part of the moving process. The added pressure of child or pet care can be easily avoided by asking a family member to look after your children for the day and dropping pets off at a nearby kennel or cattery, just until the move is over.
Whether you are moving to Newcastle, Manchester or Cambridge, removals do not have to be a stressful or time consuming exercise. With some careful planning and a little time management on your side, you could be relaxing in your new home within hours of getting the keys.
