When you move you are leaving behind memories as well as allowing yourself to move forward and make new memories. There is a lot to organize and plan to make sure it’s done without a hitch, therefore, it pays off to be organized and have a plan. If you are moving soon, you will want to make sure you have everything you need for the move to go smoothly.
Let’s have a look at these home moving tips that will help you in this new transition in your life:
Declutter Your Old Home Before The Move
Moving homes is the perfect time to declutter and get rid of anything that you no longer use or just have no use for in your new home. While you are packing you can have a ‘does this spark joy’ conversation with yourself for each item, as there is no need to take your clutter with you to your new home, otherwise, you are just going to be left finding homes for a load of tit and tat that you don’t use. Your move will provide you with a blank canvas and a new place to start organizing. Donte old items like clothes, kitchen items, toys, and old furniture, or have a yard sale before you move. After all the extra money will come in handy with the moving costs.
Search For A Moving Company
Once you know the date you will get your keys, you should look to book your moving day with some of the more traditional moving companies such as Allied Moving or if you have seen any influencers post, you may have also noticed Roadway Moving pop-up as a new kid on the block. It is an important part of your move to ensure you have a decent moving company that is experienced. If you move yourself you will find that your move takes much longer, is less organized, and is a lot more stressful. When you already have a long list of things to sort out, a moving company will take this element away.
Arrange Your Utilities
You need to make sure you arrange the move with your utilities, you need to inform your current provider that you are moving, give them meter readings on the day of your move, and also arrange for your services to be moved to your new house or for a new provider to take over. One that you might want to prioritize is of course, the internet. You probably won’t want to wait around for that to be installed as it can take a few weeks to arrange. If you arrange this before your move date you will be able to have it on the day you arrive. Definitely useful if you need to occupy your kids. If you work from home, you need to sort this as a priority otherwise you won’t be able to do even a normal working day.
