Moving house can be a stressful endeavour. Our house move storage Brentwood will help ease some of the stress

Moving house is viewed by many people as the most stressful thing they will do in their adult lives. We cannot work miracles and make your house move a breeze but our house move storage Brentwood can help.

So, you are moving house. It has taken a long time for you to get to this point. Putting your own home on the market, house hunting for the perfect new place. Maybe you have had sales fall through. Maybe you found what you thought was your dream home but the owners wouldn’t accept your offer. You have sat through all the waiting and the paperwork and now moving day is just around the corner. And, obviously, you are excited but there is probably still a level of stress coursing around your body. You’ve been through a lot to get to this point and well, moving isn’t exactly a walk in the park.

A survey conducted by Legal & General found that people consider moving house to be the most stressful thing they do in their lives. It beat getting divorced and having a baby to gain the top spot. 

Why is moving house so stressful?

One of the main reasons that so many of us find moving stressful is because it requires so much change. Even if you are ready and excited about moving somewhere new there will be an element of anxiety about the change. 

What if your new neighbours are noisy?

What if something is wrong with the house?

What if you end up hating it and wishing you’d never moved? 

Also, human beings are creatures of habit and we feel better with familiarity, routine and order. Moving sends your routine into chaos and order is extremely hard to come by when your life is packed away into cardboard boxes. 

How to alleviate some of the stress 

Moving house is a big thing to do in your life so there will always be some level of stress but there are ways to keep it at a minimum.

Make a plan 

We know that this is quite often our first suggestion no matter what is happening in your life but that is because having a plan will make everything go much more smoothly. 

Write down everything you need to do and then place each task into order of when you need to do it. The task will include things like packing boxes and calling moving companies but do not forget to add things like changing your address with your utility companies, the local council, setting up new broadband etc. 

Get started as early as possible 

When it comes to packing, get started as early as you possibly can. You want to make sure everything is packed away safely and that you don’t miss anything.

Having everything ready to go when it comes to moving day will also help to alleviate a lot of stress. 

Use our house move storage Brentwood 

If you are resistant to packing early because you don’t want to live the last few weeks in your old house surrounded by boxes, you can bring all your boxes to our house move storage Brentwood

We will find you a unit that works for your needs and all your belongings will be fully protected with our state-of-the-art security system. 

Pack an overnight bag 

Before moving day arrives, have an overnight bag packed and ready for your first night in your new home. This should include important items such as important documents and your passport but you should also have clean underwear, socks and clothes, some towels, your toothbrush, toothpaste and some deodorant. 

You should also have some food, snacks and drinks that you can eat throughout the day. Having your kettle close to hand would not go amiss. 

Be kind to yourself and ask for help 

Take time to still sit down and eat, drink plenty of water and get plenty of rest. Rome was not built in a day and you do not have to have your new home ready to go in a week. 

It is also really important to ask for help. This could be asking your friends and family to assist you with packing, unpacking or doing some decorating. It could be employing some help via a removal firm or through renting some of our house move storage Brentwood. 

You do not have to do it alone and it is not admitting defeat if you need help.
