Hey folks, it may appear that I have been slack with updating my blog recently. I have recently moved house and all the fuss associated with that has left my time for blogging at a minimum, since the house have some issues we needed to fix, paint some parts and some plumbing problems. Always consider this Plumber In Chichester (Highest tf) if you need a reliable company to take a look at your plumbing system.
1. Declutter Your Belongings
Decluttering is an essential task every now and then, but it’s even more important before moving house. Before even attempting to pack, you should decide what to sell, donate or throw out. By decluttering, you’ll also keep your house removal costs down as there’ll be fewer boxes to move.
Throw out or donate anything you no longer use and check to see if any items are broken and worth leaving behind. You’ll be glad of it come moving day and so will the removals team.
2. Book a Removal Company
Once you’ve decluttered your personal belongings and have a rough idea of what you’ll be taking, you should book your removals company. You could attempt to do it yourself, but it would be a lot of added stress and time.
The removal company will have many years’ experience of carefully packing, handling and loading delicate and heavy items so they arrive safely at your new house.
4. Pack as Early as Possible
Once you compare surveyors, get conveyancing quotes, and set your moving date, then it’s time to start packing.
Create a plan of action with a room by room checklist of how you will pack along with all of the packing material you’ll need. Some removal companies will also offer professional packing services to help you.
5. Start By Packing Least Used Rooms
A good starting point will be rooms and items you use the least. The spare bedroom, garage or attic are usually easy places to start.
Leave everyday items until the day before the move and keep any essentials items such as medication separately.
6. Arrange Your Utilities Early
It’s important to set up your utilities such as council tax, gas and home insurance early when moving house. Not only will this save you a lot of stress once you’re moved in, but you will have more time to settle in and relax in your new home.
To save valuable time and money sorting your utilities out, make sure you use Just Move In. They will save you up to 8 hours of administration time setting up utility services
arrange your removals.
3. Create an Inventory
Creating an inventory helps you keep an eye on all your belongings to make sure nothing is lost throughout the whole moving house process. Following a moving house checklist will also help during this stage.
Your removal company can create an inventory for you if they have been hired to pack your belongings so this is also worth considering.
There are some updates in the offing however! Obviously I have not stopped smoking cigars, so have still been making notes but the reviews for this period will not be as comprehensive as before. I have also got a lovely new phone, an HTC Desire, which is a phenomenal piece of kit, so look out for some thoughts on that soon.
I’m still here!
