The Dos And Don’ts Of Moving House This Autumn

As the warmer months come to an end, leaves begin to turn and the cooler nights close in, change is definitely in the air. For many, this means extra layers, cosy nights in and battening down the hatches until Christmas. However, this time of year is also when many people plan their post-summer move, ready to settle into their new home just in time for the new year.

If you’re moving house this autumn, or contemplating the change, there are plenty of things to keep in mind during the process. Although it may feel a little overwhelming at times, it is an exciting opportunity and the start of a new chapter in your life. Of course, enjoying yourself when there are a million and one things on your mind can be tricky to say the least, so we’ve put together a little list to help.

Here are a few dos and don’ts when it comes to moving house.

Plan Ahead

First up, plan ahead. This one goes without saying but it is definitely worth mentioning. Try to plan everything in advance; we don’t just mean the date and location, but the little elements too. Consider whether you’ll need a day or two off work, or whether you’ll need friends or family to help with the move.

Additionally, think about the little things, such as childcare and pet sitting. Though the idea of entering your new home as a whole family may seem somewhat cinematic, the reality is that kids and pets can make things a little more difficult while you’re finding your feet in the first hour or two of the move.

Don’t Rush

Secondly, take your time. Though you may feel the pressure to complete the move in one efficient swoop, rushing or putting unnecessary stress on yourself will only cause problems. Take your time when packing, moving and unboxing. Working methodically and systematically will benefit you greatly in the end.

Use A Removal Service

As is the case for anyone moving house, it is almost impossible to do it on your own. Hiring house movers is the best choice for anyone relocating as it means your items can be professionally packed, transported and stored throughout the process.

Here at Essex Removals, we offer domestic and commercial removals as well as containerised storage and packing supplies. We’ll do the hard work, so you can focus on your new home.
