House Moves Made Easy: A Step-by-Step Guide

house moves

House moves are exciting, but they’re also stressful. Many people cite moving as one of the most stressful things anyone can go through. However, just because it’s considered a daunting experience doesn’t mean there’s nothing you can do to make your move easier. 

If you plan well and enlist the help of people like our team at Classic Movers, your move can be smooth and streamlined. 

A Step-By-Step Guide To A Hassle-Free Move

Here are a few easy yet impactful steps you should consider for any house moves in your future:

Start Early! Your move date may seem far away, but if you put off tasks too much, you may find yourself seriously unprepared when it’s time to head out. Always start the moving process early so you can have ample time to take care of your important duties. Outline your move and consider everything that needs to be done, then create a checklist for yourself and highlight important deadlines. 

Declutter And Organise. Chances are, you don’t need everything you currently have in your home. Moving is the perfect time for you and your family to go through everything you own to determine what you want to keep and what you’re okay with parting with. The things you need can be set aside to be packed up, and whatever you don’t need can be further sorted into things you can give away, sell, recycle and throw out. Consider donating unwanted but still usable items like clothes, appliances and other useful objects. 

Notify Service Providers. A vital step for house moves is to contact your utility providers, including electricity, gas, water, internet and phone, about your upcoming move. Arrange for disconnection at your previous address and connection at your new home to ensure seamless transition of services, and to avoid frustrating times when you’re left without a service you really need.

Update Your Address. Notify any relevant parties of your change of address, including banks, insurance companies, government agencies and subscription services. Update your details for mail forwarding to redirect any mail to your new address.

Research Movers. On top of every other thing you need to take care of, you also have to worry about the physical transportation of your possessions and furniture. This is a very labour-intensive task and can be exhausting, especially for those who are untrained, don’t have the right tools or experience and aren’t used to the work. 

This is where our professional movers at Classic Movers can help. We ensure house moves are smooth and streamlined with our services, and we can take care of all of the heavy lifting while you focus on other important tasks. 

We don’t just move boxes and furniture, either – we can also pack them for you. We’ll do so efficiently yet carefully, so you can have peace of mind knowing your favourite possessions are packed well and in good, careful hands. Our team focuses on finding that balance between cautious handling and speed so we can get your goods to where they need to go on time and without incident. 

Pack A Moving Day Essentials Kit. Even if your new house is relatively close, a crucial step to take during house moves is to keep the essentials with you. Prepare a bag with essential items you’ll need during moving day and the first few days of your home. This can include toiletries, medications, snacks, changes of clothes, important documents and anything else you know you’ll need. Be sure every member of your family has their essentials ready so that everyone can be comfortable and prepared. 

Complete The Move. Once moving day arrives, carry out the move as planned. Our pro movers will work efficiently to pack your things up and load them safely onto our moving trucks, and we’ll go ahead and transport them to your new location. When you and your family are ready, you can say goodbye to your old home and move on. 

Unpack And Settle In. Once you arrive at your new home, and we arrive with all of your belongings, we’ll safely unload all of your goods and be on our way. You and your family can then begin to get used to your new place, unpacking boxes and having a fun time exploring your lovely new dwelling. 

Enjoy Your New Home. Once all is said and done, you can relax and enjoy your new home. Change might be hard, and house moves may be stressful, but you have completed your ordeal and are ready to start your new chapter in a new environment.
