Things to consider when moving house 

Moving to a new home is an exciting time for many people. Whether you’re upsizing, downsizing or living closer to family, the buzz of new surroundings and opportunity is hard to beat. 

However, like with any change in life, moving home isn’t without its considerations. Getting from A to B is a job in itself, but the added pressure of finances and legalities can feel overwhelming. So, if you want to get prepared before the big move, here are some things to consider when moving house.

Safety check your home 

Before you get ready for a night in your new home, be sure to check the locks on your doors and windows. You might have had the windows open whilst you were moving house to keep the space fresh and then forgotten to lock them after. You want everyone to feel secure on their first night, so this is a good place to start. 

Redirect your mail 

Once you’ve moved from your current address, any mail that goes there will be hard to get back. Get ahead of the game and organise mail redirection or change your address with relevant organisations. While it might feel like an effort to arrange, it will help make your move as smooth as possible in the long run. 

Organise a removal company 

Some people like to do a full house move themselves, but most require the help of a professional removal company. You must first decide how much of the move you need assistance with, as this will determine how much you pay. Some companies will pack, move and unpack your belongings for you, leaving you to breathe a sigh of relief. 

However, this can be expensive, so be sure to assess your finances before reservation. If you do want support when moving, try to get booked in as quickly as possible to secure a good price. 

Organise a cleaner 

Whether you’re looking to make your house presentable for new tenants or clean your future home before you move in, it’s sensible to get a cleaner to take the pressure off. If you have children or vulnerable adults moving into your home with you, cleaning is essential to protect everyone involved. 

New furniture 

If you’re upsizing, you might find that your existing furniture doesn’t fill your new space. Once you’ve moved in and unpacked your boxes, try to place furniture where you want it in the long term. Doing this allows you to see the gaps you have in your space and identify the new pieces you need to invest in.
