So the big decision has been made. So many possible triggers – a new job needing a change of location, a new baby needing more room, long term visitors coming to stay. Whatever the reason, its time for careful thinking and planning. The better the planning, the easier the move.
Where to go? London is huge, no doubt about it. List your essentials in a home, then list your desires. Think about more than just bedrooms and bathrooms, think location. Do you want to be near the river? Do you love the Tate Modern? Do you visit the science museum regularly? You need to think of easy access to parts of London which you enjoy in your leisure hours, as well as easy access to work. Don’t forget the tube, buses and trains. What stations do you need to be near to? Do you want to avoid the London congestion zone? Write it all down.
Once everything is written down think location. Get a map of London and circle every area which matches your needs. There may be multiple areas, there may be just one. Be picky, this is your next home you are thinking about. Trawl house websites, look in estate agents windows, select just the locations you have circled and find any places that match your needs in a home.
Then you find the perfect place. It’s your dream home, exactly the right home and location. Its moving time. Of course, moving is stressful. Its a lot of hard work and anxiety that things should go right, things aren’t broken and arrive at the other end. Think how much you have to move. If you have more than just one van load, its well worth thinking of a moving company instead of just hiring a van. Getting someone else to load and unload removes huge headaches from you, and professional movers are, well – professional from experience Eco movers were a good choice. They do it for a living and with all that practice, they get good at it.
Settle in, unpack only essentials first. Take your time for the non-essentials. Enjoy seeing your belongings again in their new surroundings. Take time to explore your new area too. Go have a look at the local range of takeaways for your first evening in your new home. Relax and watch the world go by from your new window. Enjoy your new home.
