Moving home is often an exciting time, but it is far from a stress-free experience. Many people have found moving home to be challenging. Dealing with a significant change in your life is a problematic issue for many people, and there are many logistical issues to contend with.
At Country Properties Hitchin, we are pleased to say we have helped many people move home. If you need guidance about the moving process, or you would like assistance in planning your move, please get in touch. While moving home causes problems, we believe there are ways to reduce stress moving home.
It is best to work with a plan, and decluttering your home is an excellent starting point. If you are selling your home, decluttering makes sense, as this helps you present the house in the best manner. However, you’ll also find decluttering is useful because it reduces the belongings you need to take with you to your new home.
Define what you want to keep, and what you don’t, and you’ll create guidelines that help you prepare for the move.
Give yourself as much time as possible
You don’t always have a lot of time to plan the moving process, but the more time you can give yourself, the better. While many people work faster and harder with a deadline, this adds to the pressure of the situation. If you can do a task, or tasks, every day, you break the process down, and you allow yourself to be in control of the moving process.
When you see progress, you will feel more confident about moving, and this will help you continue with the work associated with the move.
Keep the essentials handy
There are always essential items you need on the day of and during the move, so make sure you keep these handy. Make up a box with documents, medication, toiletries and other essential items, and you can be confident if you need a critical item quickly, you know where it is.
Get as much help as you can
If you can afford to hire a removals company, it is a good idea to do so. Knowing you have professionals, with insurance, assisting with the moving process is a comfort. If you don’t want to hire a professional company, try to enlist as many friends and family members as you can.
We know moving home is stressful, but the result is worth it. At Country Properties Hitchin, we take you through the moving process from start to end so if you are looking to move and you need assistance please contact us.
