by | Jun 13, 2019 | News | 0 comments

Living in London can be a bit of a balancing act at the best of times. Add organising a relocation with your busy career, raising your family and everything else, and things can get a bit chaotic. That’s why it’s essential that you start planning straight away, so you’re able to tackle any obstacles and issues as they occur. The Anthony Ward Thomas team are here to assist you during your relocation and to help reduce stress levels with our high standard of service.

During this time, you’ll understandably be far busier than usual, so it’s critical that you create a moving checklist to keep on track and meet deadlines. By having a moving checklist to guide you, it’s less likely that you’ll forget tasks that need some preparation. And by booking your removals with Anthony Ward Thomas early, you’ll have us in your corner from the start to the finish of your relocation.

How to Make Moving to a New House Less Stressful –

The number one cause of stress for any relocation is time. If you’re closing in on your moving date and you still have a lot to do, you’ll invariably start to panic. And the worst thing about being in this position is that mistakes begin to creep in, and you end up causing more problems than you solve. This can be especially difficult if you’re organising and planning everything yourself with little-to-no assistance.

That’s why it’s an excellent idea to try and arrange your relocation as soon as possible. We often suggest doing this as one of your first tasks for a few reasons. The first is that you’ll be able to choose the most efficient and cost-effective time and day to relocate. Secondly, you’ll have our team to help with the planning side of your move. Thirdly, you will be able to put together a timeline from the present date right through to your move.

It’s a good idea to find out as much as you can about your new location. We would also suggest looking into your immediate postcode and then the surrounding areas. Before you arrive, it helps to have a decent level of knowledge regarding things that are useful for you and your family. That can be the local healthcare provisions, public transport, education institutions, shopping centres, the closest police station and the municipal buildings.

It’s also crucial that you keep on top of the people you’re hiring to provide a service, which includes us. Contact us the week before your move to double check everything is on track. Our Packing service is ideal for people who prefer to leave it to the professionals or are extremely busy. And with a range of core and specialist removals services, we have everything you need for your next relocation.

Creating a Moving Checklist for Your Relocation in London –

There is one thing we advise for every relocation, and that’s to start planning now. The earlier you begin to list and go through each item you need to do, the more straightforward everything will be. To do this, you need to create a moving checklist – you can see our moving tips and checklist here. You can delegate tasks to family members and rope some friends into help out.

Your timeline will be an essential piece of information that will highlight when you need to do each task by. It’s best to work backwards from your relocation day to now because you’ll know exactly how many weeks you have left. It’s also handy for any tasks that slip under the radar, only to reappear again. If you manage to be vigilant with your timeline, you will give yourself plenty of leeway to tackle and rectify small issues that crop up.

Every relocation is less stressful if you know what items you plan to relocate with. This is known as a home inventory list, and we suggest that our clients download an app to do this. It’s much easier to share your inventory for things like insurance, as well as sending to us to assist with our pre-relocation planning.
