The Complete Guide to Moving House

The Complete Guide to Moving House

Moving house can be so hard and stressful.  I’m hoping this guide will help you through the steps of moving house and the whole process.

The first step is the most obvious, to find a suitable property, which can be done by looking at estate agents’ websites and visiting open days.  Once you have found your perfect home, it’s time to start packing!

You want to pack your furniture in a way that it is protected and won’t be damaged during the move. There are two types of boxes you can use:

  • The first type is a cardboard box, which should be used for large or heavy items. You can also use this type of box if you want to pack your fragile items separately from the rest of the items.
  • The second type is a plastic container, which should be used for lighter items such as clothes or books.

You should pack each room in order of importance.  Start with the bedroom and work your way down through the living room, kitchen, bathroom and finally the garage.  Make sure to label boxes so that they are easy to identify when unpacking them at your new home.

What are the Costs of Moving House?

Moving house is not just a physical process.  It also includes many other aspects, such as the costs of moving.  The cost of moving house can vary depending on many factors and can be difficult to estimate.

The price tag for moving may seem overwhelming at first, but there are plenty of ways to reduce the cost.  Some people choose to move themselves while others hire professional movers such as M25 Movers or packers to do it for them.  Other alternatives include using a self-storage facility, getting rid of items before the move or selling items after the move and using the money for relocation expenses.  Great places to sell the things you no longer want are the Facebook Marketplace or Preloved.

Predicting Your Moving Date – How Long Does it Usually Take?

Moving from one place to another can be a difficult task, and it may not be possible for everyone to do it on their own.  It can also be a very expensive process.  If you are planning on moving soon, then you might want to know how long it usually takes.

It usually takes about two months for the move to happen.  This time is needed when you are getting your new home ready and when your old home is being prepared for the new owners or renters.  If you are moving out of state, then this time period will increase by an additional week or two since there will be more driving involved in the process.

If you’re moving home soon, I hope it goes well for you.  We recently moved our son and it was very successful.
