It is widely recognized that moving house is one of, if not the most stressful events in any person’s life. There are seemingly hundreds of smaller tasks to complete before the move can take place. A new home needs to be found, and surveys need to be arranged for both your current home and the new property to ensure that both buildings are in a suitable condition. Different forms of conveyance paperwork need to be arranged by hiring professionals in this area to ensure that everything runs smoothly from a legal perspective. The day of the move can also be incredibly stressful if you are not well prepared for the event.

Thankfully, this post seeks to help people who are preparing to move house by highlighting two key ways to minimize the stress that may be present on the big day.

Plan in advance

One of the most important stages in any house move is being well-prepared for the day itself. Removals companies may need to be hired if you have a large number of household items that cannot be shipped using your own vehicles. It is important to research the companies in your area in the weeks that precede the moving day and find a company that is both reputable and dependable in this field of work.

A good way to find out more about removal firms is by looking at customer review sites. Sites such as Trustpilot offer unbiased reviews from previous clients and can be a key way to pick a professional firm. You will also need to plan out where your possessions will be in the new property. Take the time to make a room plan by using a room planning app that will allow you to accurately assess the size of your new rooms and what items can fit there easily. This key stage of planning can save you lots of time and stress once you reach your new home.

Moving your goods

If you have few possessions in your current property, you may find that your own means of transportation can ship the goods. However, in most cases, there will be a range of fragile or high-value possessions that will benefit from being shipped by a professional large-box shipping firm. Some large box shipping companies have years of experience moving such items as part of a home move. These types of firms will be ideal for providing the assurance that the goods will get to their destination safely and securely.

For items that you intend to move yourself (or load onto a larger removal truck), it is extremely beneficial to mark the boxes with a thick permanent marker on more than one side of the box. Write down a brief description of the contents along with the room that they will be placed in on arrival at the new home. Many people overlook this simple step and then find hours lost searching for items when they reach their destination. Put simply, the small amount of time it takes to comprehensively mark the boxes can make the removal process far less stressful and time-consuming.

To sum up

Thoroughly planning your removal process and considering what needs to be shipped (and by what method) can be incredibly effective in making a home move far less stressful.
