Relocating is a decision not to be taken lightly after all moving house is a stressful enough affair, so upping sticks and moving to an entirely new area is bound to set the butterflies going.
Whatever your reasons for relocating, whether it’s a new job, love or just simply because you want a change of scenery, chances are if you’re reading this that you’ve already made the decision; now you need to put the plan into action.
One of the first things you’re going to want to do is organise your belongings and make yourself a plan. Having a clear checklist on your head is a good way to help avoid unnecessary stress, if you’re struggling to formulate a plan then Bell & Sons can offer you expert advice on how to best approach this. In the meantime, the following tips could help you with planning your big move.
Sort through your belongings
Relocation is a good excuse for a sort out! Going through all your belongings and getting rid of things that you no longer need, use or wear can be good for your own headspace and make moving loads lighter. You’re relocating to have a fresh start. Keeping hold of things that simply clutter your living space will make your new home feel less like a fresh start and more like chaos.
Plan your packing schedule
Create an inventory of your belongings, this will help you organise your packing rota as well as keep tabs on things come the day of the move. Try organising your items by usage, from least used through to most. This way you will avoid packing things you will need too early and avoid having to reopen all your neatly packed boxes.
Start your packing earlier rather than later
Leaving your packing to the last minute is a sure fire way to heap the pressure on your shoulders and cause you to pack in a disorganised manner. This will have a knock on effect when you reach your destination at the other end when you find yourself furiously piling through boxes to find items that you need.
