house moving tips

Moving home is a busy time. In fact, it’s known as one of the most stressful times in a person’s life. You would be forgiven for forgetting things during your move but we’re here to help.

Here are some things that are most commonly forgotten during a house move.

Stray Fees

Most people are so concerned with making sure their mortgage goes through and the paperwork is signed and official that they forget to put money aside for fees. For example, you may have solicitors fees or mortgage advisor fees to pay once the deal is done.

Make sure you know how much you’ll need to pay in advance so you can put money aside before you move.

Babysitters For The Kids

Moving home can be even more stressful when you have little ones running around. If you’re trying to unpack boxes and your kids are getting up to as much mischief as they can find, the whole process can be wearing on you all. Be sure to ask someone to watch the kids while you sort things out.

Pack a ‘For Now’ Box

You don’t want to be searching through piles of boxes to find the essentials you need when you arrive at your new home. Pack a box of necessities you can quickly put your hands on. For example, kettle, bedding, snacks, and other things you’ll need on moving day.

It’s also worth packing a backpack for each member of the family so there are clothes and toys ready and waiting.
