Relocations are stressful and emotional. And even when you're just moving out to a place down the road, moving without planning ahead is a nightmare, and that’s before you consider the extra requirements of moving across the continent. Here are some helpful tips to get you through relocations without breaking a sweat:
1: Do as much research as you can
You might already have a place or you're in the market for a new one, but the bottom line is: you need to research your new location. Is the building in good condition? Is it a busy street? What are your shop and grocery options? Is there sufficient parking and entertainment options in the neighbourhood?
So much more goes into this if you have a family with kids - schools, job opportunities, and safety are only a few of the things you need to research before moving in. Trust us, research is your best friend!
2: Select a neighbourhood that suits your needs and budget
Many falter when it comes to balancing your needs and wants with your budget. Try your best to physically visit your new town before moving in or at least have a few pictures of what the environments look like. Take note of how easy (or difficult) it might be to commute to work and the amenities around you to get a whole picture.
3: Plan, plan, plan
Go in with a plan. Get your checklists, labels, and other organisational items. Although packing this way may be a pain, it makes the unpacking process easier.
The best tip for an organised plan is to combine items that go in the same places. For example, bathroom items are packed together, along with bedroom items, kitchen items, and the living room. This way, you can label your boxes easily and you can find what you need with ease too!
4: Leave the kids and pets with a friend or family member
Do you know what's worse than packing?
Packing with small children and pets present. Can you imagine everyone running around and out the door while you pack? It's going to be a nightmare! So ask a family member or a friend to babysit while the moving process is in full swing to avoid the stress of having distractions all around you.
5: Hire a moving or relocation company to help
Sometimes it just gets too much.
When moving isn’t worth the stress and aggravation, the best way to avoid it completely while getting the job done is to hire a moving company like Cotswold Carriers to quicken the pace while you relax at your new home.
6: Don't put off unpacking
While it may be exhausting to immediately unpack when you get to your new place, we promise that getting it out of the way will be much more satisfying and convenient.
But if you're really too tired, organise the way you unpack. Unpack the essentials first such as toiletries, food items, kitchen items, and bedding. Then unpack the bigger furniture, then move on to the trinkets and finishing touches.
Using this method, you can transition to your new home better.
