How To Avoid Stress When Moving Home

It is said that moving homes can prove to be one of the most stressful things to do, and as exciting as moving can be, it can also be quite a daunting event. Moving is a time consuming and expensive thing to do but is worth it in the end once you are settled into your lovely new home. But moving doesn’t always have to be quite as stressful and expensive as you may think. Follow our tips to moving home easily and cost-effectively while minimising the stress involved.
Plan in advance – Forward thinking and planning ahead is essential when moving home. The obvious things to plan are selling your current home and arranging a removal service etc. There are various other things that often get overlooked when moving., such as redirecting your post, internet installation and making lists of all accounts and companies you will need to inform of your change of address. Another helpful thing would be to find out bin days for the new home.
Maximise the value of your current place – It may sound like a no brainer, but you should always do whatever you can to increase the value of your home before you put it up for sale. You could move some personal belongings out to declutter and remove some of the personalised feel of the place. First impressions are so important so a one-off deep clean and perhaps a lick of paint could be a game-changer. It would also be beneficial to consider landscaping.
Get a bargain from your removal service – The likelihood is that you will require a removal service. You should do some research on companies and read some reviews, then shop around and get various quotes, but first of all, you should declutter and reduce your items as much as possible. The less stuff you need moving, the lower the quote will be.
So, with these points in mind may be moving home doesn’t have to be as strenuous as it first seemed!
