Home moving & planning tips

When the time comes for you to move your home, one of the very first things that you need to take into consideration is whether you have a plan already in place to assist you through the move; if you do not have a plan,  you need to make one as soon as possible.  Fortunately there are some easy tips to follow to make the process simpler.

From the off you need to think about when you will be making a move and if a firm date is not immediately apparent then you still need to have an approximate time frame in mind.  The next step is to engage in a thorough clean out of your home and begin running down canned and frozen foods.

If you have large items of furniture it is a good to make sure that they will all fit into your new home.  It is also a good idea to come up with an inventory of all your furniture, as well as of other household items, and create a list of people that you need to contact to let them know about your upcoming change of address.

Around a month before the day of the move you should create another list, this time one for the essential items that you will require on the big day.  You should buy or collect a number of sturdy cardboard boxes and decide how you are going to organize your packing, seeking advice if necessary.
