Whether you’re moving for the first time or just trying to plan ahead, it’s always good to be in the know, so you are as prepared as possible when you eventually do.
Prepare months in advance – Nobody tells you just how long it takes to plan the big move but ideally, you want to be planning months in advance to make it run as smooth as possible. Let your utilities know your moving date as soon as you have one so you can avoid any overcharges that you’ll need to manage later. You’ll want to let you bank know your change of address in advance so you can avoid any bank statements being delivered to the incorrect address.
Lists, lists and more lists – Yes, moving is going to require organisation to the highest degree. Some tasks will be time precious whilst others might just need careful planning and the best way to get around this challenge is by making an array of checklists. Organise it by weekly countdowns starting two weeks before.
Book your removals in advance – Removal companies will get booked up early for weekends and bank holidays, so as soon as you get a moving date firmed up – get booking. You’ll get your best price by booking early and it will give your removals Bangor time to evaluate access to both properties.
New Home New furniture – When you move home, you’ll want to fill it with fresh new items that work in the new space beautifully. It goes without saying that money saved can be put towards your new home furnishings, and that side table absolutely can’t live without.
You can never get enough boxes – Most people will underestimate just how much packing materials you’ll get through. The last thing you want is to arrive at your new home to find your condensed packing has resulted in the damage of a much-loved item. It’s best to start collecting your boxes and old newspapers right away. A good way to build your collection of boxes is by asking your neighbours to leave any spare with you.
