HOME // Important Things To Consider When Moving

So, you’ve finally signed all the paperwork and have a moving in date for your big move to your new home but where do you start with all the planning? It can be really easy to get caught up in all the excitement of buying a home and forget about the moving aspect. Moving is well known as one of the most stressful things that you can do in your life so it's imperative you spend some time thinking about how to prepare for it in order to make it have as minimal stress as possible.

There are often areas of moving that people forget to think about or don’t focus on so let's have a look at some of the things you should make sure you’re planning in advance:

The Boxes 
You may think that it’s silly to think about the boxes however there is a lot to cover when it comes to thinking about boxes. From the boxes, you use to how you pack them there is a lot that can go wrong. Some at the things that you should be thinking about include:
Type Of Boxes- When it comes to thinking about the boxes you use, you want to make sure you are using robust boxes that are fit for purpose. The last thing you want is for your moving company to be lifting your valuable item for the bottom of the box to fall through. If you don't want to spend a fortune try using boxes from the supermarket as often these have already proven they can carry heavy stock.
Labelling- It’s really important that you think about labelling your boxes as you're packing. It’s often something that is forgotten and it can spell disaster at the other end of the move, how are you supposed to know which rooms the boxes belong in if you haven’t labelled them properly? It’s also a good idea to use indicators such as heavy, fragile, unpack first to give you an idea of what may be in the box and when to unpack them.
The Amount- Another thing to think about is the number of boxes you may need and the range of sizes, you're not going to need massive boxes as this can make it difficult to lift.

Arranging Storage And Movers 
These tend to go hand in hand together. You want to make sure that you’re are organizing all the finer details such as your storage requirements and arranging movers if you plan to use them within plenty of time. It’s no good packing all your stuff up and then realizing you could have done with a handy storage unit for the items that you're unsure will fit in your new home. The same applies to arrange a moving service, they will want to make sure that they are able to provide the correct and adequate service for your needs and sit down to sort of a plan of action for each end of the move, If you leave this to last minute you may find it difficult to secure a decent service.

These are only a few areas that you should be considering when moving, there are others. Do you have any that you can share in the comments section below?
