Moving Home and that To-Do List

Moving home can become a traumatic experience if the long list of things to do fall into disarray. It more or less has to be a precision operation from start to finish if it is go as smoothly as possible. Let’s take a typical—if there is such a thing—house sale and add it to the pot. Ok, so the process starts with the decision to move, whether it be for work relocation or just a step up the ladder. You go house hunting for the next couple of months and then finally hit on the home of your dreams. If the price is right, you are all set to make an offer and wait for acceptance. If there’s a little negotiating you argue it out and wait for acceptance. Finally, a decision is made.

So, then there is the usual conveyancing, surveying and all that legal stuff that you have to go through before you can actually get your furniture inside and start living the dream. When you get the notification saying you can pick up the keys, that’s when the fun really starts for some people. You have this really tiny window of opportunity to get your stuff out of the old place and into the new place and it can sometime feel like a comedy of errors, but having a solid ‘to-do’ list can help you tick off each little job as it gets done.

The Actual List and Stuff

Technically the list should include things like moving boxes, packing tape, a sharpie pen for labeling boxes, a dolly-trolley, bubble wrap, newspaper and Styrofoam peanuts. You may opt to pack all your stuff yourself or you might want to choose a full packing service from your chosen removal company. Remember, if they do it all they should be fully insured again breakages and damage, but if you have some precious items that are simply irreplaceable you might want to pack those yourself, regardless.

You can get boxes that are suitable for removals in St Albans, or any other place that sells packing equipment. Be careful with heavier things like books because you don’t want to pick one up and find that the bottom falls out of it and the books go all over the place. Use strong packing tape to reinforce your box bottoms.
