The cost of living is rising on an almost daily basis, and we are all looking for ways to save money in our attempt to keep costs to a minimum, and if you are planning to move in the near future, you could save yourself a bundle by carrying out the move yourself. Here are a few tips to help you carry out a home relocation without using a removal contractor.
- Hiring a Van – Of course, there are many vehicle rental companies out there, and the Internet can help you find cheap van hire in Maidstone, and some will even throw in packing materials if they know you are moving house.
- It’s All About Planning – Like most operations, moving house goes smoothly when we plan accordingly, so create a checklist that includes all the major and minor tasks that must be attended to. The list would indeed be long and would include things like disconnecting the utilities, informing local tradespeople, cancelling subscriptions and many more.
- Enlist the Help of Friends – The saying, ‘many hands make light work’ certainly applies when moving house, and if you can get a few able-bodied guys to help with the loading, it will be much easier. Of course, family members can assist in many ways, with packing and cleaning.
Careful planning should ensure that, come the day of the move, everything is ready, and the money you save can go towards fixtures and fittings in the new dwelling, and you can also have a housewarming party to celebrate the new chapter in your life.
