A handy guide to moving house with minimal disruption

Moving house is one of the most time-consuming, nerve-wracking, and complicated processes you can experience in life.

If you are buying, not only do you have to track down your dream house and negotiate a deal that all parties are happy with, but you may have to wait for the timelines of these other parties to line up with yours before you can make any headway.

The situation is similarly tough if you are renting. Trying to extricate yourself from rental agreements and determine whether the new landlord’s tenancy requirements match your situation is far from easy.

Then there is the disruption to your lifestyle. Moving house is extremely time-consuming, which may require you to take time off work, pull all-nighters and put your social life on hold while you get everything sorted.

Of course, these challenges can appear overwhelming if you aren’t prepared for them beforehand. This is why this handy guide has been written, which helps point out some useful tips and keep the process of moving house as disruption-free as possible.

This is what you need to know when moving house.

Guide to moving house with a disruption-free process

Use a courier service

One of the most horrible headaches every house mover faces at some point or another is how to move your possessions from your current property to your new one.

This is the challenge that keeps most people up at night when they first consider moving. Unless you are fortunate enough to have a van or lorry sitting on your driveway, you are unlikely to have the necessary means to transport bulky items like beds, chest of drawers, and dining room tables without outside assistance.

As a result, you should transport your items in a container using a container transport service. This will alleviate any disruption on your part and prevent you from having to somehow do the entire move yourself in bite size chunks.

Plan well in advance

Another key tip that you should keep in mind if you want to move house with as little disruption as possible is to plan your move as far in advance as possible.

While it is not always possible to know the specifics of a move until the last moment (as you may not have finalised a deal on your next property), you should have as many details as you can nailed down as soon as possible.

These should include how you are going to transport your possessions, how much it is going to cost, when you will need to take time off work or be unable to pick your children up from school, as well as which items you want to keep and which ones you are willing to give away or sell.

In fact, this final point is pertinent.

You need to be brutal with deciding which items you are going to take with you because every possession is going to cost money and time.

If you need to get rid of particular items, then make sure you sell them well in advance.

Be tactical with your logistics

Lastly, you need to be intelligent with your logistics. This means making sure each run you do to your new house is loaded up with the right furniture (for example, leaving the beds behind until last so you have somewhere to sleep) and doing the runs at an off-peak time to avoid traffic.

By being clever with planning your house move, you will minimise disruption and make it far easier to complete.
