5 things to consider when moving house


With only four months to go for the final Brexit decision, there’s a lot of buzz about either moving abroad or coming back to the UK. Whether you’re moving across the world or just across town, there’s a lot to consider.

Here are my top five considerations:

Carefully plan your new space setup

When it comes to moving house, size is important. You have to think about how compatible your current furniture will be with your new place or you’ll end up with too much stuff and nowhere to put it. Or perhaps it’ll finally be time to splurge on that new coffee table you’ve been wanting for your massive new living room. Make sure you plan carefully so that you know how your stuff will fit.

5 things to consider when moving

Be smart about your removal costs

Depending on how far you move, it can be quite expensive to move to a new city. If you’re moving to another country, international removal costs may stretch your wallet. There are great platforms out there where you can compare different company quotes and ratings to see which one gives you the most savings!  

Stay calm and carry on with your packing

Packing can be a pain, especially if you still need your things while making the transition. Give yourself plenty of time to start packing so that you don’t end up rushing at the end, and make sure to keep the essentials for last. Label all of your boxes by the room they’ll end up in to make it easier for you to manage once it’s time to unpack.

Redecorating opportunity?

One of my favourite things about moving is that it gives you a fresh start on how you decorate the environment you live in. It’s a great opportunity to update your decor and let go of things you no longer need. Removal companies usually charge based on the size of the truck, so if you can opt for a smaller truck because you’re gonna replace some stuff anyway, why not use the savings for a bit of redecorating?

Most importantly, be sure to have fun!

5 things to consider when moving

Moving can be stressful, especially when it means your children will be leaving their comfort zone for somewhere new. The best way to work with this is to make sure that you stay positive – even when things get busy – and make moving into a fun experience. Getting the children involved and giving them choices in the process will make things easier for them and I’m sure you won’t mind the extra helping hands!
