Three Things To Do Before You Move

Moving home is one of the most stressful things you can do. Trying to sell your house, buying a new one, dealing with agents and lawyers, packing, storage, removals, the list goes on. It becomes even more complicated when you need a short term storage solution because you have not yet found suitable accommodation. This is where a reputable self storage company comes in, to make your move a little bit easier and stress free.

1. Purge
You don't want to pay for removals and storage of things you don't even need. Go room by room and be ruthless, the general rule of thumb is that if you have not used it in a year then you don't need it. Donate it, give it to a friend or sell it. The extra cash will come in handy when you are looking to pay for removals and storage costs or you want to decorate your new home. One of the other things to start using is frozen food. No need to try and move all the frozen food if there is none. This will save you space and hassle.

2. Collect Documents
This includes medical records, school information, ID's and passports. Don't forget you should also be including title deeds, wills, vehicle registrations and any other legal documents, especially where you own an asset. Create one binder where all of this information is readily available. You will be surprised how hard it is to find your ID amongst the hundreds of moving boxes and this simple folder could save you a mountain of frustration.

3. Take Leave
Moving is stressful and it's hard work. Taking leave to make sure you don't have the added pressure of the office is important. This will allow you to concentrate on the move, getting things completed and keep your sanity. The time off of work should also allow you a little extra time with the family, the most important part of a new house is the people in it. That is what makes it a home.
