What To Do If You're Moving House in 2020

For people looking into moving house, there can be a lot of things that need sorting out in order to make the process as seamless as possible. From finding your new home to thinking about what you’ll want to take with you to your new home, your days are going to be filled with endless to-do lists of everything that needs doing.

Here are some of the things you’ll need to look into. Allow plenty of time to plan and execute the plan, too- life is a marathon, not a sprint. This is an advertorial.

Pack It Up And Clear It Out

Moving out also means having to clear out a lot of the junk that accumulates over a certain amount of time of living in one place.

Moving somewhere smaller? Measure up your new home to check your large furniture has a place to live, too. If not? Sell it and use the profits to add finishing touches to your new place. 

If it's something you're not quite prepared to part ways with you can easily opt for a container storage and store any excess belongings that can be of use at a later date. 

This can be a great opportunity to clear out the things that no longer serve a purpose in your life- while it’s nice to hold onto some memories, your job now is to look toward the future.

When clearing your stuff, create four piles: keep, sell, donate, and dispose. The keep pile is for the stuff you use every day. If the item still has life in it and it could be worth some money- sell it. If someone else can make use of it- donate it. If it has seen better days and is completely unusable- time to let that thing go.

Research Moving Companies

Now you’ve chosen the city and the place, it’s time to think about how you’re going to get there.

Whether you choose to arrange the process yourself or use the services of professional companies like Bekins Moving Solution, you’ll want to make sure that your possessions get to their destination unscathed.

Some companies will also provide boxes and packing materials as part of their service, but it’s best to ask around for extras- you can never have too many boxes!

There are plenty of extra things to do when moving to a new place— do your research and plan well!

Let Loved Ones Know Where You’ll Be Going 

In amongst the stress of planning to move, it can be easy to forget the basics- let your friends and family know that you’re moving, and more importantly, to where.

For bigger moves to a different part of the country, you might want to host one final get-together so that those you’re leaving behind get an opportunity to say goodbye.

It might be tempting to break the news on social media, but for your nearest and dearest, reach out to them first before extending it out to your wider network.

Ensure people that your new home is open to them once you get settled in- why not even plan a painting party to get some help with the decorations?

Moving home doesn’t have to be stressful. Plan well and execute carefully.
