When you decide on a relocation for your home or office, you’ve got seemingly endless things running through your head. You’re trying to close on your new home or building, all while moving the family or company. Professional removalists can help you plan for everything, so you don’t have surprises toward the end of the move. Companies like Better Home Removals offer tips on what to do and when all while helping you pack and move your items to the new location.
What To Do Anytime Before
Once you know that a relocation is going to happen, it’s best to return any library books and discs, remembering not to get any more until you’ve moved. Then, you should take clothing to the dry cleaners and pick it up, as well as go through your belongings. Now is the time to determine if you want to keep clothes and other accessories, giving away or throwing away those that you can’t use.
Likewise, you should start planning meals and keep the menu low-key so you can reduce your food stock from the fridge and pantry, making it easier to move these items.
What To Do Four Weeks Before
Four weeks before the move, it’s best to start considering professional removalists and choose one, booking them for the times you’ll need them. You can also contact service and utility providers to arrange for disconnection and reconnection, as well as what items will be required on the day of the move, such as games for your kids, clothing, toiletries, and more.
You can start packing items yourself or your removalist can start packing, hopefully using a spare room to start storing. If you don’t have extra room, the removalist you choose should offer storage facilities. You should also focus on cancelling subscriptions or putting them on hold.
