According to statistics, moving house is one of the most stressful experiences life has to offer. Moving house as a couple is trying enough, but add kids, pets and a lifetime of possessions into the mix and even an inter-city move can become a nightmare.
With around 11% of Brits moving house every year, there’s no shortage of demand for tips on how to cool things down. So, to help you ensure your move is as stress free as possible, we’ve put together a guide featuring our top in-house tips on how to relocate with ease, and avoid falling into total chaos.
Even if you’re a notoriously unsystematic person, we can’t stress enough the importance of being organised. Anywhere between 30 and 60 days is recommended, with week to week countdown checklists a great way to stay on top of things.
Organise a Baby/Pet Sitter
If you have youngsters or furry friends in tow, it’s always a good idea to palm them off for the day. Not just for convenience, but also for their own safety. You’ll be free to focus on the move, and will enjoy the total piece of mind that they’re not tottering around under piles of precariously placed boxes.
Get to Know Your Neighbours
You don’t have to bake a fresh batch of cookies for the entire street, but when you’re settled into your new home, don’t dismiss the importance of getting to know your new neighbours. A simple door knock introduction is a great way to immerse yourself in the community, and start to embrace your new lifestyle from the moment you move in.
