Let’s be honest, when you talk about moving house most people’s reaction or response is “I can’t think of anything worse”. Moving house doesn’t’ have to be a negative experience though. There are simple ways to make moving home enjoyable. After all, once you are into a new home it is a pretty exciting period getting to know the local haunts and making the most of your new space. Moving house doesn’t have to be a pain, it can be positive by making a few small adjustments.
Leave it to the experts
Probably the most painful part of moving is the physical labour associated with the task. Majority of people probably aren’t moving couches and fridges every weekend, so of course it isn’t fun. Instead of complaining the whole time, get yourself a removalist in Sydney. Removalists will make any move positive. They will take care of all of the heavy lifting on both ends and can even be hired to pack your belonging into boxes for you. In addition, a removalist will make the whole process move a lot faster than you and whoever the unwilling volunteers are you have rangled on the day.
Prepare on both ends
After a long day or days of moving, there could be nothing more annoying that walking into your new home in the dark. Make moving home a positive experience by being prepared in advance. Contact your power and water suppliers to let them know your moving date in advance. By doing so you will avoid any potential issues ahead of time. In addition to this, contact your internet provider at least four weeks in advance to let them know you are moving home. Technicians for these services are usually booked in advance. Don’t let the move be negative because you end up chewing through your phone data without internet for the first month. Moving can be positive so long as you are prepared.
You’ve got mail
One aspect of moving that can become negative very easily is your mail. Make sure you change your address ahead of time with a redirect. The forms are relatively simple and can be set to start of a specific date. The last thing you need after moving is a bunch of phone calls asking why you haven’t responded to mail or paid bills because you haven’t seen them. A short form and a small fee is all it takes to make the whole process a lot more positive.
When you are packing up your old home, don’t just throw it all in boxes and tape them up. Take the time to pack up a room at a time then clearly label the box with the corresponding room. Place the boxes from the same rooms together, that way you or your removalist can easily know where to put them on the other end. Instead of wading through box after box, traipsing up and down stairs, you can easily know where each box belongs and unpack a lot quicker.
Moving home has a bad reputation for being a very painful and negative experience. But it doesn’t have to be. Turning it into a positive experience is as simple as being prepared, taking care of those pesky tasks like mail and outsourcing the heavy lifting. If you are preparing to move house, use these tips to make it a more positive move.
