Moving to a new home can be an exciting experience, with the chance to make a fresh start, discover new opportunities, and make a new house your home. However, removal day can also be very stressful – after all, packing up your entire life and moving it to somewhere else is never going to be the easiest process. Thankfully, with some top tips from the pros, you can make sure that your upcoming removal day is as stress- and hassle-free as possible.
Choose Your Removals Company Early
If you are looking for a removal company, you might find that it is difficult to get the date that you want depending on when you are planning to move. Most people try and move to a new house at the most convenient time such as during school holidays, at the weekend or on a bank holiday so that they can make the most of the time off work, so it’s a good idea to plan ahead and book in advance to ensure that your spot is secured.
Contact a family-run firm like G W Twilley and Son Removals. They can give you an estimate and let you know what dates might be available. They can even do video surveys.
Make a List
After hiring a removal company, it’s a good idea to make a list of everything that needs to be done to avoid as much stress as possible. After all, there is often a lot to do in the run-up to a move, and your everyday life is going to carry on alongside your plans to move. The earlier you start getting everything prepared in advance, the less stressful the moving day itself is likely to be.
Having a huge clear out of your home well in advance to get rid of any unwanted or old items that you don’t want to take with you can make packing much less stressful and it could even save you money since you’ll have less to take in the removals van.
Start Packing Early
Packing up your home always takes longer than you think, so it’s a good idea to get started as early as possible by packing any items that you are unlikely to need between now and moving day. Once you have cleared out everything that you no longer need, start packing items that are used the least and work through them until the last items to be packed are the ones that you use frequently. It’s a good idea to label all your packed boxes with a sticker to inform you of what’s inside and the room that it’s going to go in at your new home, to make unpacking easier.
Pack a Removal Day Survival Kit
There’s nothing worse than realising that you have packed something that you need on moving day, and it’s in a box somewhere in the removals van. To avoid this stress, it’s a good idea to pack a survival kit in a small bag that you can keep with you. Pack anything that you’re likely to need on the day like toiletries, phone chargers, and snacks.
Moving to a new house is exciting, but it can also be a stressful experience. Keep these tips in mind for a smooth and stress-free removals day.
