Alongside getting married and having children, moving house is meant to be one of the most stressful experiences of your life! Itís no wonder Ė getting everything you own from one place to another isnít something you need to do particularly often.
Of course, it can be expensive too, and large removal companies may not be the best value, particularly if you are moving temporarily into a rental property. You might want to consider making the most of the resources you have available; ask around and see whether your friends and family might just be able to help you out.
A van is very useful when it comes to moving and itís worth checking out if anybody you know has a van you might borrow. Otherwise, renting a van can be a great way of ensuring you make fewer trips than in your car! However, it is worth considering whether you will need commercial van insurance, but even so it can still work out considerably cheaper than hiring a removal company.
Otherwise, itís all hands on deck! Itís becoming more and more common these days to have a housewarming party on the very day you move in Ė if your friends and family are already there to help you out, it makes sense to make moving a social occasion.† So long as you reward everyone with a burger and a cold drink at the end of the day, they probably wonít mind so much!
Investigate all your options and really have a think about how you can move in the smoothest possible way.
