It's no secret that moving house is one of the most stressful things that you'll ever do in your life. Although moving somewhere new is a very exciting prospect, when it comes to actually packing up all of your belongings and handing over the keys, it's fair to say that it can be an extremely tense time for many people.
At Gentlevan Removals we have many years experience of helping people to move house, and we know how to make the process as easy as possible, which is why we've put together five tips for a stress-free house move to make the whole experience a total breeze!
- Make sure you have plenty of time to sort everything.
It's really important to ensure that you give yourself enough time to avoid any rushing. This means taking time off work so that you don't have to do everything during your evenings and on the weekend too. It's also a good idea to arrange in advance for someone to look after children and pets on moving day - believe us when we say they are two things you definitely don't want to be worrying about while you're moving boxes!
- Remember to look after yourself!
During the moving process, make sure you take regular breaks from packing and treat yourself now and then - whether that means having a cup of tea and a biscuit, or doing something fun like going to the cinema, so that you can have some time to relax!
- Organisation is key
To ensure your move goes as smoothly as possible, it's a good idea to put a moving checklist together to make sure you have a record of everything you need to sort. This also means ensuring you have plenty of boxes and bubble wrap too! Also, it's helpful to focus on packing up a room at a time and make sure you ask for help from family and friends if you need it.
- Keep the positives in mind
Whatever the reason for your move, when you can feel yourself starting to get a bit frazzled, ensure you keep the positives in mind. Think of it as a new beginning, a fresh start for you and your family - and once you are settled in your new house we're sure all of the stress will be a distant memory!
- Hire professional movers
All of the previous points aside, a great way to ensure a completely hassle and stress-free move is to hire a team of professional movers to do all of the hard work for you! They will ensure that everything goes to plan while you can take the back seat, safe in the knowledge that the experts are in charge!
