Whether you are looking to join the tiny house movement, or you are looking to find a more suitable home now that your kids have moved out, downsizing can be a great lifestyle option.
Smaller homes are more manageable by busy professionals, they are more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly, and can reduce your monthly expenses.
But when it comes down to moving the belongings stored in a bigger house into a smaller space, things can get stressful. After all, if you are looking to downsize your living space, you’ll have to make smart choices about what to keep, what to store, and what to give away.
Working with a specialist remover at Essex Removals can make your next house more stress-free and enjoyable. Start here!
Creating an Efficient Moving Roadmap
A specialised remover can help you set clear expectations about your house move and help you decide what belongings to keep and how to smartly arrange them in a smaller living space. What’s more, removers can help you plan each step of your move so that you won’t have to deal with stressful and costly disruptions to your daily life.
Make an Inventory of Your Belongings
When downsizing, you will need to make an accurate inventory of your belongings, furniture, and appliances, and ensure that the items you choose to keep fit into your new living space. Experienced removers can help you catalogue your belongings and understand the needs of your new home, so that you can choose how to arrange them, have all you need at hand, and keep your new home free of clutter and unnecessary items.
Reducing Clutter and Finding Storage
No matter whether you have been living in your current home for a year or three decades, the chances are that you have been accumulating items, souvenirs, memories, and furniture. While these belongings are what transform a house into a loved family home, the line between a cosy living environment and a cluttered space is always too easy to cross.
But when you are looking to downsize, unnecessary items can clog your new flat or house, and make it stressful, hard to clean, and unhealthy.
When working with a specialised remover, you can leverage their expertise to craft a plan and decide what items to sell, which belongings to leave behind, and what furniture and memories to store in suitable storage space.
Transporting and Unloading Items With Care
If you are looking to live in a smaller home, you have likely picked the items to bring with you with care. In turn, those fewer belongings might also be your most valuable ones.
Specialist removers have the knowledge and expertise to transport the most delicate items – including pianos and antiques – and prevent damage. The team at Essex Removals will also provide you with comprehensive insurance coverage of up to £50,000.
Leverage Specialised Removal Knowledge
No move is entirely stress-free, especially if it involves a drastic lifestyle change. However, when partnering with the team at Essex Removals, you can enjoy the peace of mind of knowing that your most valuable items are handled with care and respect, and that the belongings you are bringing with you to your new homes are the right selection to enjoy a simpler, more minimalist, but happy life.
