How To Prepare For House Relocation, The Stress-Free Way!
Preparing for house relocation is something that we all have to undertake at some point in our life. With removal companies in London cropping up all over the place, we usually find it quite simpler to actually just hire a moving company to be able to do all the heavy lifting for us. Hiring a man with a van is one of the most renowned ways that we prepare for a house move, however there are other ways outlined in this article that help us to make this a smooth time, instead of one where we feel like a headless chicken! Follow the steps below and you will be able to put your feet up, like you rightfully deserve: • Prepare a moving checklist. This is incredibly important because in our busy city lifestyles, our work is never quite done. By the time, we fall asleep at night, our mind has been buzzing and we’re over worked on adrenaline. If you follow a checklist you have made, you can be absolutely assured that you won’t really have a problem when it comes down to sorting out everything that is on it. We’re not just talking about hiring a removals company, we’re looking at things like contacting utility companies to change addresses, letting people know you’re moving and all the other little small things that we seem to panic and leave to the last minute because we think we have it all covered. It’s tiring to think we can jog this all from memory, so the best solution to this to simply go by the list and it will cut you a lot of lost time. • Decide on how much budget is for each thing. Hiring a man with a van company, is one thing, however during your relocation, you also need to be looking at things like furniture removals, etc. Maybe you don’t want to actually take along your furniture to the new place and the landlord didn’t own it, so you’re now stuck with the problem of actually on how to sell it. Your best friend at this time is a storage company is able to store your furniture and other chattel for you, until you actually have buyers. It may be a little costly, however in the long run, you’d have rather sold your sofa for £2000, and which was it’s good price than sell it for £500 and make a huge loss because you needed a quick fire sale and nowhere to store it.• Work out that all your legal stuff is in place, including everything in the contract, the lawyer and the estate agent. You do not want to wake up one morning, when everything has been prepared, set and booked to realise, that something has fallen through like the new landlord taking the property of the market, or randomly failing a credit check because of the one time you defaulted on your mobile phone bill. Relocation often starts a year in advance, to get all your ducks in a row, so that in the lead up to it, preferably around 90 days, you can simply do the stuff that is required; not think of how to repair x, y or z and have no time to do it in.
