So, you’ve found your dream luxury home and are all set to move in – congratulations! There is nothing quite like the feeling of securing your dream home, and it is sure to be somewhere that makes you very happy for a long time. Much like any move, there will always be a great deal of stress attached to the process of moving in, and this is understandable as it is such a large challenge, plus it can also be emotional to leave somewhere behind. In order for the move to be a success and as stress-free as possible, it is important that you carefully plan the move well in advance.
Create A Schedule
The first step to take will be to create a schedule for the move as there are lots of steps, all of which are highly important and need to be carefully thought through. This schedule will include hiring a removals company (more on this to come), transferring utilities to the new address, arranging for friends to help, packing, saying goodbye’s, getting the keys, etc.
Decide On A Budget
With so much going on, it can be easy to forget about money when it comes to moving home. It is important to decide on a budget as costs can very easily escalate, plus, you may already by spending a huge amount on the move and want to keep costs down.
Deciding What To Take
Next, you need to carefully go through all of your possessions and decide what to take and what to dump/donate/sell. This is a good opportunity to cut down on your possessions and even raise funds by selling items. If you are moving far away or even overseas, keep in mind that it might be cheaper to buy new items once the move is complete.
Make sure that you take the time plan for certain practicalities such as saying goodbye to friends, neighbors, and family, booking time off work, arranging for someone to look after kids or pets on moving day and informing various institutions of your move and providing your new address. This will ensure that you are ready to make the move come moving day and there will be nothing that you have forgotten.
Always book the book the moving company well in advance. It is worth spending money on a highly regarded removals firm as the top choices be able to take care of everything on the day and even do your packing and unpacking for you. This will reduce stress, ensure that everything goes according to plan and allow you to focus on other areas of the move.
Carefully planning the above should allow for a smooth and stress-free move into your luxury home. There is a lot to plan, and it is a huge undertaking to move home, but planning these stages will allow you to start getting settled straight away and start this new exciting chapter in your dream home and hopefully, it will be somewhere that you create many happy memories.
