Moving House Checklist
Throughout your life you will encounter times of stress; this is
particularly true when it comes to moving home. There are so many things to
remember and at times you may feel a little overwhelmed with everything that
you need to do.
Here at Silverman Black, we have put together this helpful moving house checklist to get you
through the basic essentials of the moving process to help minimise stress.
- Have A Clear Out - When you move home, you can start by using it as an opportunity to
have a sort through all of your belongings and decide which things really need
to come with you and those things that don’t.
- Arrange A Moving
Company - In Carshalton alone, there are a number of different moving companies
that can help you to relocate all your belongings into your new home. Whilst
arranging these types of services can be an added cost, having someone else
take charge of transporting all the heavy goods and unloading them at the other
end can leave you with the time and energy to concentrate on unpacking and
arranging everything in your new home.
- Change Your Address - When you move home you will need to ensure that you have notified all
the relevant companies of your new address. Banks, doctors, schools, work and
utility companies are just some of the people that should be aware of your
relocation. You can also speak to Royal Mail and ask them to forward all of
your post to your new address for a set period of time. This will make sure
that you don’t miss out on any post that arrives before the address change sets
- Make An
Emergency Pack - There is one thing that most of us will want to unpack first when we
get to our new home and that is the essentials. Teabags, sugar, mugs and of
course the kettle. Rather than having to remember which box these vital items
are in, why not create a box that is solely made up of those must-have items
when you get to the other end? You may want to pop your phone charger, some
snacks and cleaning products in this box so that you have everything you could
need to hand.
- Think Of Your
Pets - If you have pets, then moving home can be stressful for them too, so
work out what is best for them before you start to move. Perhaps you have a
friend or family member who can look after them at theirs for a day or so
whilst you move and settle in, or alternatively you could book them into a
kennel or cattery to make sure they are safe whilst you are away from your old
