Setting Priorities for Stress-Free Home Relocation

It goes without saying that moving house or office is the most stressful thing anyone can do.  But if you set priorities and organize your move down to the last detail, moving is actually fun such that you will look forward to it with as much pleasure and anticipation as that of a new adventure. 

The first priority is to find everything about the new place you are moving into.  It is important that you relocate in an area where you would feel at home right away.  You are well-advised to go into a familiarization tour around the new place to make sure that you’ll find your way around when the time comes.  Then transact with utility companies to set up electricity, telephone and gas lines at the relocation home so that you can concentrate on more urgent matters when it’s time to move.

1.    1 month before moving day:

-       Book your moving company.

-       Sort through your things to discard all those no longer necessary.

-       List all the items that need special handling and care.

-       Measure the spaces in the new place to ensure that your furniture fits.

-       If packing yourself, secure cartons and packing materials.


2.    3 weeks before moving day:
