With everybody feeling the pinch right now, it would seem that life may appear to be more difficult, but there are those people who have been lucky enough to find a dream home during this time, thanks to slowly dipping house prices, this can be the start of an amazing adventure. So with this in mind what does it really take to make sure that you move into your new home properly? 

Get the Moving Process Started ASAP

The moving process begins before you sign on the dotted line. You need to confirm the moving dates, get in contact with a professional removalist, and start packing boxes between 6 and 8 weeks before the move. Professional removalists can be quite flexible if you need to change the moving date later, but it's also important to remember that you may need extra storage. If you want to look into self-storage, try and get this in place at least 2 months before the move. In the last 12-months, there has been a big queue for storage because of so many people having to move back in with their parents and start all over again.

Sort Out the School/Work Situation

If you are moving far away, you have to consider your working situation. If you're moving to a new area with your children, you will also need to apply for a new school. You need to make sure that all the paperwork is in order, but also keep communicating with the old school to make sure that they are in the loop.

Get the Right Insurance

There's different types of buildings insurance, and you need to make sure that you are getting the best bang for your buck to make sure the property is covered against any events like floods and fires. You also need content insurance to make sure that everything is covered against any damage, loss, as well as any break-ins that could occur.

Keep Your Important Documents Safe

Make sure that, as the moving date approaches, you keep all your documents safe. There's a lot of critical paperwork that you will need to keep a hold of. One of the best ways to make sure that you keep everything in place to have a lockbox. This is a container with a built-in lock so everything is secure. If you need to get things like birth certificates, employment contracts, or passports, you don't have to fumble around for them because they're all in one place.

Sort the Utilities 

And as you get to the final steps of being the owner of a new property, one of the first things you have to do is to set up the utilities. Before you start renovating the place and come up with amazing ideas for the space, look at the gas and electricity prices, and get in contact with the utility companies. 


Moving into your dream home should be an amazing experience, especially if you have had a tough time. However, it can be very stressful, so try these approaches and they will make life a lot easier.
