5 Challenges Homeowners Face When Moving House

Everyone knows that buying a house is one of the most stressful processes, but the real stress comes on moving day, or at least the weeks leading up to it. Here are a few problems you can expect to face when it comes to moving day…

Being Unprepared 

You might think that you have all the time in the world to prepare for moving day, but you will be surprised how fast the time goes. Our best advice is always to start earlier than you think you need to. Even if you are just doing a little bit each day, you will thank yourself when it comes to moving everything. Instead of trying to tackle an entire room, put an hour aside to declutter your junk drawer.

Furniture Doesn’t Fit

You have planned everything, from what will be moved and where, down to how it will be moved but there’s one problem, it won’t fit through the door. If you are planning to keep your sofa it might be best to measure it and see if it will fit through the door. If it’s too big or it’s at an awkward angle, you might need to make alternative arrangements. Don’t worry, a professional removal company can help you find the best way to move furniture in and out.

Not Knowing How to Move Belongings 

Probably one of the most common challenges you will face is finding a way to move everything from your current home to your new home. Most of us don’t own a van or a car big enough for furniture to be transported it. Finding a van to hire can also be rather tricky, you have a lot to think about, and it might not be worth it. It might be best to leave it to the professionals. Instead, hire a removal company to take the stress out of moving.

Feeling Unorganised

Feeling unorganised is likely to be a challenge no matter how organised you feel leading up to moving day. Whether it’s coming across things and deciding last minute you want to get rid of them or not having enough categories. There is always going to be something that makes you feel unorganised. Try not to worry too much about things being super organised, as long as everything gets there in one piece. You can always throw things away when you are settled into your new home.

Belongings Being Damaged

If it’s your first time moving you might be worried about your items being damaged in transit, especially your more fragile items. Even turning a corner too fast in the car could lead to a broken vase or trying to carry something by yourself that is simply just too heavy. Instead, it might be best to let a removal company help, they will know how to package your items securely and transport them safely.
