Moving is finally upon you and the butterflies have started in your stomach. You spent ages preparing but still you’re not ready. The good news is that this kind of scenario is entirely avoidable! By following just a few simple steps, you can transform your feelings over your move from fear to euphoria. So how do you do it?
Ideally, you should start thinking about your move months in advance. The most important step is to contact your favourite moving company and arranging a moving date and budget. At A Man with a Van London we always agree the cost with you in advance, taking into account your individual requirements. No hidden fees and never any unpleasant surprises!
The truth is you can’t always plan ahead, and sometimes last minute moves are inevitable. Even if you need to move overnight – you can always find help. Our team are available 24/7, 7 –days a week.
The best advice anyone can give is to stay on top of your move. Don’t worry, I’m not talking spreadsheets and endless calls with your moving team. The key to a smooth move, small or large, is to start planning your packing immediately. Figure out if there are items that can be placed in storage and book that storage space in advance. Think about in which rooms you will want your belongings placed in your new home, and mark all your boxes clearly. Notify your bank, utility companies, the local council and health care providers of your move and set up postal forwarding. And most importantly, don’t forget to call your movers if you have any hiccups along the way!
Be physically and mentally strong
Even after following all of this advice, you may still feel anxious about your move. In the months, weeks and days leading up to moving day, you should be mindful of relaxing your body and mind. Spend time with your friends and family and help them alleviate your stress. Go for gentle walks or kick it up a gear in the gym. Watch your favourite TV. All of this will help make you happy and settled – just in time for the big day.
