Are you planning a move?
The festive season is fast approaching and no one wants to be moving on Christmas day...
Reduce the stress, act quickly by booking in a moving date this side of Christmas if possible or after the New Year if you are looking for a peaceful break. Give yourself plenty of time either side to deal with any issues that may arise and don't be pressured into moving if there are still legal queries. Check the hours of operation of solicitors, estate agents and of course removal companies.
Make sure your new property is actually ready to move into, particularly if it's a new build and remember, call out fees for plumbing, heating and broadband may be higher over the Christmas break.
The process of selling a house, buying another one, packing and moving; as well as ensuring routines are maintained requires a lot of planning and preparation. Doing all of these things at Christmas time, with the added pressure that you want to be settled in your new home before Christmas Day, amidst shopping for presents and Christmas lunch can be stressful. Ensure a few decorations are displayed to inspire the Christmas spirit.
Weather conditions such as snow (a white Christmas) can complicate things further. Remain calm and salt your driveway for the removals van to avoid getting stuck in the snow and to ensure feet don't slip on pathways when carrying boxes. Make sure you and your family have extra warm clothes to hand on moving day to keep the chills away. Preparation is the key!
Tell your family and friends that you're moving and give them your new address details, or they'll send your Christmas card to the wrong house. Remember organise your belongings, pets and post redirection.
Use our moving guide as a checklist to ensure you don't forget anything.
