When it comes to moving house, no doubt for most people it isn’t an experience to be relished. As a matter of fact, lots of people dread it. However, there are definitely things you can do to make the experience a little less stressful. Moving house can be overwhelming, so with this in mind, we list a few things that we recommend that you do not do.
Forget to declutter
You need to declutter before you move. This is crucial. This might be a case of taking a few bits down the tip or to the charity shop or even seeing if any friends fancy taking a few bits off your hands. You need as much additional room as possible when you are planning a move so getting rid of unwanted items can be a good solution to freeing up space during a move.
Forget to take measurements
Prior to your move, you need to make sure you take measurements. Specifically for the doors and also larger items and furniture. All you require to do this is a measuring tape. It won’t take you too long to do either so there is no excuse for not doing it. A good tip is if you go to a viewing, take a tape measure along. This way you know in advance that everything fits and you know which furniture needs to be disassembled.
Carry out heavy lifting alone
Over the years, it’s tempting to put anything you aren’t using or don’t really need, in the loft. Does the phrase, out of sight, out of mind sound familiar? When it comes to the move, don’t risk your safety and attempt to move lots of big items down from your loft on your own. This is very dangerous and carrying everything down on a ladder can be very hard to do in and of itself.
