Whether you are packing up and starting a new life on a different continent or you are moving to the other side of the country, you are probably feeling both anxious and excited at the same time. Long-distance moves require a significant amount of planning and organisation, but once all of the paperwork and necessary stuff is taken care of, you can focus on the excitement of starting afresh in a new place.
Make a list of all of the things you need to get ready well in advance of the moving date. A good tip is to set the moving date (at least metaphorically in your brain) and work backwards. If you mentally put yourself in the mindset that you are moving on a certain date, this can help to put in perspective the most important parts of the move, which you can then use to create a list of the most important priorities.
Having an idea of a moving date can be helpful, but it is also helpful to know the size of your new home area and a few other details. Presumably, you have already visited the property and the area, and this can help you build an idea of the kinds of things you will need once you move. For example if the climate is sunny for most of the year, you could spend some time slimming down your winter wardrobe. Think about what furniture you really need to take with you, now could be a good time to give away or sell any items that needed updating anyway. Work out what new items you could purchase once you are settled, as this can help you save on transportation costs.
Make Travel Arrangements In Advance
A good removal company will give you an idea of the time frame that you can expect your possessions to arrive at your new home in and give you updates during the process. Consider separating out valuables that you will need in the meantime, it could be worth shipping them separately or brining them in a case with you. It can help to have things like vaccinations, permits and hotel reservations planned well in advance to reduce the stress on moving day.
