Moving home is never easy. A lot could go wrong – items could be broken or misplaced, the van transporting all your possessions could break down, or you could simply run out of time on the day itself. Hopefully, none of that will happen with your move, but you can raise your chances of a successful move by looking at these 5 tasks to complete on moving day.
Check That Your New Home Has Your Utilities Up and Running
Moving is stressful enough, so you do not want to move into a new home that doesn’t have running water, electricity, heat/air-conditioning or gas. Make sure everything will be switched on before you arrive.
Clean While Your New Home is Empty
You might be able to request a deep clean from the people whose home you are buying, or you could provide a deep clean yourself while your new home is empty. It is much easier to deep clean your new home before you move in, rather than after.
Take it Slowly and Don’t Panic
The actual moving day may only be a single day, but moving in completely will take days, if not weeks. This means that there’s no need to rush. The key issue is to get everything out of your home and into your new one. You can work out how to set up your new home over the next day or so instead of trying to get your new place ‘complete’ in a single day.
Don’t Forget to Eat!
Sure, you are going to be busy, but that doesn’t mean you’re going to want to starve all day. Make sure you get a decent breakfast, break for lunch and make sure you stop for dinner too. If you don’t think you are going to be in a position to cook, then make sure you have numbers for delivery services in your new area!
Unpack the Essentials First
You are probably going to be tired after a day of moving, so make sure your important items are on hand and easy to find. You’ll want to collapse into your bed, not spend all evening searching for your sheets, pillows and blankets!
