How To Reduce The Stress Of Moving Homes

Moving house is said to be up there with the most stressful things that can happen in your life. If you
have lived in your current home for a few years, everything that you own will probably have settled into
its own place. Packing up all of your possessions up into boxes and moving them to a new home can be
a lot of work. With many of the items that we own holding so much sentimentality, there can be a great
deal of worry attached to transporting them. Things can get damaged, or even lost. To add to all of this,
there are a lot of practicalities that go hand-in-hand with moving homes. Utilities need cancelling on one
end, then set up on the other. There may be decorating that needs doing on both houses, as well as
giving the home a deep clean. 

Dealing With The Practicalities
Before you move out of your current home, you will need to get in touch with so many people to let them
know that you are moving. Make a list of all of the businesses and organizations that have your address
on record. These may include; utility companies, banks, credit card providers, and car insurers. You will
also need to inform the electoral roll, and the driving licensing department in order to update your license. 

Set yourself a few hours to sit down and get in touch with all of the relevant companies. Some will offer
the chance to go online to amend details while others may need you to phone up. Missing out
companies can cause you headaches later on down the line, so make sure you update everyone. 

You may want to set up to have your mail forwarded. You could also look at using to have your letters sent to you digitally.

Packing To Move

When it comes to packing your possessions, you need to be as organized as possible. Think about how
much of a mess your new home will be when you move into it, so make it easy on yourself by marking
up your boxes with what is in them, and where they are to go in your new home. That way, you can
make sure that you can send boxes to the rooms they are going to get unpacked in to help keep your
new home as tidy as possible during the unpacking process. 

Keeping Everything Safe

Packing requires some consideration to avoid your valuable or delicate items from getting
damaged. Make sure the bottoms of your boxes are secure and stable. Put heavier items toward the
bottom, and lighter toward the top. Make sure and mark the boxes with a direction to store and carry
them. If you have fragile items, either use bubble wrap or use towels and clothes to protect them- mark
the boxes to be handled with care. Avoid overloading your boxes so that they do not become too heavy
to lift, or run the risk of breaking at the bottom.
