Stress-free Moving

Most of us have moved home at some stage in our lives. And research shows that it can be extremely stressful, on par with divorce and bereavement for many people.

Being organised and as efficient as possible will go a long way in reducing anxiety and stress. Here are 5 top tips for a hassle-free move:

1. Budget – gain a clear understanding of the costs you will incur so you are not hit with any hidden surprises.

2. Create a checklist – if you know you cope poorly when pressured by time, try creating a schedule of tasks. Start as soon as you can and tick off jobs once they are completed.

3. Hire a professional removalist – When you are moving house you are placing all your worldly goods in the hands of your removal company, so make sure the company transporting your belongings is professional and experienced. Consider hiring professional packers too.

4. Treat yourself – if possible take breaks and allow some time to enjoy yourself and relax. Eat well and try to get ample sleep.

5. Survival kit – before moving day try packing a survival kit of essentials. This can contain items that will get you through the move day unscathed e.g. toiletries, phone chargers, bottles of water and snacks.
