Happy Saturday ✨! Whether you’ve never moved house before or you have, but it’s been a while, you might not realize quite what you need to have in place or think about to ensure it goes well. In fact, although you might think you know everything you need to know, and you’re completely prepared, the reality is you have probably forgotten something. I actually want to move out this summer to a bigger apartment so I thought I would share with you 3 things no one Tells you about moving house .

You Own More Than You Think You Do

A quick glance around your home will never tell you the full story when it comes to how many possessions you actually own. There will be things in drawers, at the bottom of closets, in the shed in your yard, in boxes in the garage, under the stairs, and plenty more besides. 

Not only will it take a lot longer to pack these things if you underestimate how much you have, but you might not actually have to take it all with you. If you are sensible when you start to pack things up, you can throw a lot of the things away that you no longer need or want. When you do this, unpacking certainly becomes easier, and your new home will be much less cluttered

You Might Be In A Chain

When you are buying and selling houses, you can easily be part of what’s called a chain. This means that the person you’re selling to has to also sell their house to people who might have to sell their house, until we reach a first-time buyer or an investor, for example. Working the other way, the person who you’re buying a house from will be buying from someone else, and so on. 

The longer the chain, the more risk there is of a problem happening that could delay or entirely stop your move. This is why it’s a good idea to check the chain if you can and choose an empty property or the end of a chain to buy. Equally, if you have a few offers on your home and one of those offers has no chain, they might be the best choice, even if they’re offering a little less. 

Plus, it’s a good idea to make your removal company aware that your dates might need to be flexible. Many, such as Allied Van Lines, will understand this as it happens a lot, but it’s good to ensure everyone is aware. 

It’s Emotional 

Moving house is often an emotional experience. Even if you’re really excited about moving to a new place and starting a new phase of your life, leaving a home you spent time in and made memories in will always be hard. It will be hard even if you didn’t particularly like the house, so imagine how difficult and emotional it will be if you loved it but need to move anyway. 

Give yourself some time to feel your emotions. Trying to keep them all hidden and just carry on will only lead to more stress, and you might not be able to focus on what you’re doing. Deal with your emotions and acknowledge them, and it will be easier to move forward – literally and figuratively.
