Mistake 1 – You Don’t Plan For It

You may have heard this saying before: fail to plan = plan to fail.

Leaving your previous home to move to a different place can be a very difficult and time-consuming process. After you need to move, you decide either to end your tenancy or sell your prior home. You then sign a tenancy contract or jump over all the hurdles mortgage paperwork places before you. Perhaps then you think that’s the worst of it. Not necessarily!

Moving house is a big undertaking and requires considerable effort. It’s also important to dedicate enough time to complete the task correctly. Start by sitting down and devising a plan that details how you’ll transport your belongings from the old home to the new home (Funnell’s Removals can help you). Tracking notes or measurements is crucial, so ensure you always have a tape measure and notebook handy.

Make sure all the furniture that you will be taking with you has been measured and ensure
(a) you’ll get everything through doorways and
(b) you won’t lack the room in your new residence.

The worst outcome would be to bother bringing things all the way over to your home and finding that it doesn’t suit you or prevents you from entering. We will gladly move your valuables for you, so feel free to contact us so that your belongings can be properly handled on the day of your move.
