‘A goal without a plan is simply a wish’ and you do not want to WISH your home or office move into being you want it to happen. So with that in mind let’s get planning
What is the first thing to do when moving
In my opinion, the very first thing you need to when it comes to moving is to fix on the date you want to move. Try and opt for a relatively quiet time when your calendars free..and if it is a home removal – most definitely when your kids are in school, get it booke din quick with the removal company of your choice.
How to find the right removal company
Having a look at removal companies with great reputations is key – this is not a case of making do with the cheapest. You want to hire a professional who will do a really professional and smooth job.
I have tried to move our home before with just a hired van. We did all the packing up etc ourselves and honestly? never, ever again it was all a bit of nightmare, to be honest. Office removals, in particular, need to be swift, efficient and extremely well organised so business continuity can occur. Definitely a time to call in the experts.

You will also want to make sure you have prepped an emergency box with kettle tea biscuits and toilet paper in (plus a phone charger or battery pack!) Important documents can be carried seperately if need be or stored with someone or somewhere safe during the move.
How to manage stress when you are moving
House moves or office moves can be hugely stressful but they do not have to be. Keeping a positive mindset can make all the difference. If you keep your focus on why you are moving and the benefits this will bring, you will feel both excited and focussed. This positivity will help things run so much more smoothly than if you are nervous.
Another good way to keep stress at bay is to make sure you eat, sleep and get a good dose of fresh air on the day. And do share the load-carrying it all by yourself can feel like too much.
