Everyone knows how much stress moving house can cause. That happens because most of us fail to prepare properly for the exercise. With that in mind, I wanted to release a post of bright ideas that are going to make your lives easier. A friend of mine recently relocated, and so all these suggestions are fresh in my mind. Regardless of the finer details of your situation, these bright ideas are going to make a significant difference. With a bit of luck, you won’t face too much hassle on moving day if you take my advice.
Leave the kids somewhere else
The most important thing you can do is to leave the kids with a babysitter. You don’t need them under your feet all day causing trouble. They’re going to become bored, and they won’t enjoy the experience. So, make sure you arrange for someone to look after them for a couple of hours. I guarantee you will thank me for that tip.
Pack a week in advance
Never leave your packing until the last minute. If you do that, you are sure to discover your don’t have enough boxes. Either that or you’re going to feel stressed and emotional the night before your moving day. That is not something that you want to happen. You need to feel as fresh as a daisy when you wake up on the big day.
Call a removals company
There are professionals out there who can move all your positions for a fee. Experts from Conroy Removals say there is lots of competition in the market. So, make sure you call local companies at least a month in advance. Explain your situation and then ask them for a quote. You can then use that figure to drive costs down from their competitors. With a bit of luck, you’ll get a decent deal if you negotiate.
Hire a skip for your rubbish
You are going to have lots of garbage that you don’t want to take to your new house. So, do yourself a favour and take a look online for the best deals. Representatives from Affordable Bins say the service isn’t as expensive as most people think. You can also get the skip for a week, or more so there’s no rush to dispose of your trash. Just throw it out as you’re packing.
Book a week off work
The thought of going back to work the day after your move is going to place a lot of stress on your mind. You’ll try to rush things because you know you still need a decent night’s sleep. With that in mind, you need to change your strategy. Book an entire week off, so you have more than enough time to settle into your new home.
Those ideas are sure to make your life easier when moving house. Make sure you put them into action if you don’t want to have a breakdown during the experience. If you do that, your moving day should go off without a hitch. All you’ll have to worry about is making sure you unpack the right boxes in the right rooms. Good luck!
