A new house means a new phase of life. Moving into a new house might mean a new job opportunity, marriage, or better living conditions.
The process of packing, moving, and transportation is tiresome and time-consuming. Even if you hire help for removal services, you are bound to get overwhelmed with the whole process.
In order to enjoy your moving process, it is better to plan and prepare ahead of time systematically. Moving is not just about packing and unpacking, you have to uproot everything and start everything from scratch.
It is better to get your ducks in a row so that you have a smooth transition into your new house. Juggling a couple of tasks at once can result in declined productivity so start prioritizing your tasks, and get things done faster!
Start thinking ahead and prepare yourself for the time in your new house. Let us guide you through the process so that you can make your checklist.
If you are moving into a new house, good for you. But if the house you are moving in needs minor repairs and remodeling, this is the first thing you should do. Before moving your stuff from the storage room into your new house, get a handyman to check the pipes and plumbing.
You don’t want to make repairs when all your stuff is in the way, thankfully storage London is extremely cheap, and renting a storage unit for a couple of additional days will not cost you much.
Before taking the plunge and moving into the house, check whether the new house has an active utility connection. Running connections of electricity, water, internet, and gas is extremely important even if you want to survive a single day.
Whether you want to transfer your old connections to your new address or wish to use already installed connections, just make sure to keep an eye out before completing the move.
Gather Your Belongings
We understand that moving can result in chaos. With so many things going on at the same time, things can get out of your hands. It is highly recommended that you tuck away your stuff in a storage room, and take everything out once you are ready to shift.
Before moving, gather all your stuff and pack everything properly. Put tags on the boxes, secure everything with bubble wraps. You can also take pictures of everything so that you will easily remember once you are ready to unpack and unbox. Unpacking is as nerve-wracking as packing, so making an inventory of all your stuff will be super helpful.
Take Your Time
We know moving can take an emotional toll on some people. The stress and pressure can be too much to handle, don’t worry, we have some amazing suggestions for you too. You don’t have to rush through the process, if there are no time constraints, you can take your own sweet time.
You can put away all your stuff in storage units and take out everything slowly. Storage London rates are often on the lower side; you can extend your storage units lease for a couple of months and slowly bring your new house to life.
A Cleaning Marathon
If you are moving into a previously occupied house, get ready to put in some elbow grease in cleaning. You can wear your rubber gloves and gather tens of cleaning supplies, but honestly, who has so much energy after shifting into a new house.
It would be wise to call a cleaning agency and get a thorough deep clean session booked. Make your house germ-free by getting your floors, toilets, kitchen, and air conditioners cleaned by experts.
Check Cupboards and Wardrobes
Before shifting everything from the storage room to your house, check cupboards and wardrobes. The wardrobes should be clean and dry, free from any kind of water damage. You don’t want to spoil your clothes and accessories with any kind of infestation.
The same is the case with cupboards and kitchen pantries. Before setting up everything, carefully inspect every nook and cranny and get repairs done in time.
Ask For Help
Even though the prices of storage London units are affordable, you cannot just put all your stuff in them and forget everything. Procrastination can be lethal in this case, so after officially moving into your new house, get started on setting it up. Decorating a new home will give you a warm, welcoming feeling.
Managing everything by yourself seems daunting? Don’t hesitate to ask for help from friends and family. If you can afford it, hire a removal service that also unboxes and assembles everything. There are many storage London companies providing this service and the great thing? They don’t even cost that much.
