Moving to another house is surely a stressful process that creates mixed feelings. On one hand you are happy that you’re moving to a new home, but on the other hand you’re stressed about the process. Most of the time, due to all these mixed emotions, there are things that people tend to forget when moving.
Whether we’re talking about small moves, or long-distance moves, there are important things that never come to mind to take care of. Even the most compulsive people often don’t pay attention to them. For this reason, we are here to help you! Here is a list of the most commonly forgotten things, so as you don’t forget when you decide to move.
Transferring personal records
Is the place you are moving to in a completely new location? Then you’ll need to register, in advance, at a new clinic that is located in your place of residence. This way, if you need to visit a doctor, you will not have to drive miles to your old location.
The same goes with your children. If you have family and your children need to change school environment, you need to pay attention to it. You should visit the schools that are at your new location, before you move, to register your children.
Recording of meter readings
Do not neglect to do this procedure. By recording the meter readings at your previous home, you can send them and inform the energy supplier about the kilowatts you consumed. This way you avoid the possibility of being overcharged on your last bill.
You should do the same in your new home too. Record your meter readings from the day you moved in and send them to the energy supplier. This way, you won’t be charged for a full bill.
Arrange parking for the van on moving day
It is something that never crosses the mind, but it’s really important. It is essential for the smooth running of your move that you have ensured a parking space. This way you will avoid delays and frustration, especially if there is heavy furniture such us a pool table.
The van will have to be outside your home on the moving day. So, you should inform your neighbours to leave you parking space. By doing this, you won’t have a problem on the moving day. This way, upon arrival to your new home, movers will not need to manoeuvre to unload the van.
Care for your pet
There are two things you should keep in mind in order to move with your pet. First of all, as aforesaid, you don’t just need to take care of your personal records. You should also update your pet’s microchip with your new address.
The other thing is that your pet cannot understand the moving process. This surely can cause him stress. So, keep in mind that in the moving day you need to find a friendly person for pet sitting. This way, the process will run smoothly and your pet will be calm at its first interaction with its new home.
Pack your essentials
It may seem obvious, but it’s not! Many people in rush to pack all their stuff, forget to pack a box with essentials for the first days. This can be really tiring when you arrive at the new home. You will surely have to unpack all the boxes to find what you need.
So, keep in mind to pack a box only with the essentials. This way, you can have easily access to the things that you’ll surely need the first few days. This box may include clothes, toiletries, food, chargers and anything else that is necessary for you!
Most of the people tend to forget things that are not in their field of vision. So, items in the storage never come in mind, until last moment. So, if you are planning your move, don’t overlook your storage. Surely, there are many things that you need!
Most of the time, we place things in the storage that we don’t use every day, or don’t even need. So, before moving, take a look at your storage and pack all the items that you need. Thus, you will have peace of mind on the moving day and, also, declutter your home from things you need no longer.
