A Removals Company Advice on Things to Consider When Moving House
One of the things that make moving house complicated is trying to take all the items from your old home into your new one. You can make things a lot easier on yourself if you get rid of clutter.
Get rid of anything that you have not used in the past year. Bring it all out in a pile, including clothes, toys, and electronics and throw out anything that you cannot get rid of in a garage sale.
Once you have only valuable items open your garage and let your neighbors and other know that you have a garage sale. Not only will this help make moving easier, it will also help you raise a little money that you can use to settle into your new home.
Get a lawyer to look into your new contract
Many people get short changed when it comes to tenancy contracts because they don’t read between the lines. Before you sign anything make sure that you get a lawyer who deals with tenancy contracts to look over yours. They are looking for any loopholes that you may be held liable for in the future.
Contact all suppliers
Make sure that all your suppliers know that they should cancel your old address and update it with the new one. This includes things like the mail, any delivery companies that you use, your gas supplier, water supplier, phone providers, your bank and credit card companies, your employer, your doctor, schools, your vet and so on. You should also give your insurance company all the information they need to provide appropriate cover for your new home.
The actual move is the most stressful part of getting into your new home but if you plan carefully you can make it a lot easier. Make sure that your current tenant gives you a couple of days to clear out – you will not have to rush around to make sure that everything is done on the same day. Clean your new home in advance – if you move your property in there before it is thoroughly cleaned you will have a hard time getting it habitable. The way you pack also makes a big difference – make sure that like items go together.
