4 Tips for Moving House in the Summer
Moving house is an incredibly exciting time, however it’s no secret that it’s one of the most stressful events in our lives. According to The Telegraph, it can trigger more anxiety than a relationship breakdown, divorce or starting a new job. Here at DS Movements, one of the most reputable removal companies Cambridge, we don’t think that has to be the case – we firmly believe it’s important you find a removals company who make your move as seamless and stress-free as possible.
With the longer days and better weather (we say ‘better’, but we all know what British weather is like…), summer is often a popular time f0r moving house. Read on to see 4 of our top tips when moving over the summer months.
Possibly our most important tip – avoid Friday-Sunday! As you can imagine, Friday, Saturday and Sunday are the most popular removal dates, alongside the most popular dates for the UK population to be travelling for a weekend break. For a smooth removal and your best chance of avoiding built up traffic, try to move on a weekday. Obviously this isn’t always possible with work, so if you must move house on a weekend, book early.
Think of the kids
Do you have any children in the family? Make sure to plan your domestic removal to fit in around the summer holidays. Moving can be a big deal to the younger ones of the family, so try and cause as little disruption as possible to the school term. Especially if you are looking at changing schools, the summer holidays are a great opportunity to allow them to settle into their environment before starting fresh at a new school
Time to declutter
With the warmer weather and longer days, there is no better time to declutter! A couple of weeks before you move, we recommend rummaging through those cupboards, drawers and wardrobes and collecting up any unwanted items. Don’t worry, though, we’re not frivolous with waste – get yourself up early and head down to a local car boot sale to earn a tidy profit and put it towards your new home. It’s a win-win!
If you have several items that are not suitable for resale and need disposing of, take a look at our house clearance Cambridge services. We’re licensed waste carriers, too
Book your move in advance
Finally, if it wasn’t clear from the previous points, moving house in the summer is extremely popular. Make sure to plan as early as possible and choose a reliable removals company Cambridge (that’s us!) to complete your removal. Get yourself booked in and decide whether you would like your removals company to help with packing and materials – if not, make sure to prepare these too.
