If you’re moving to Cambridgeshire, chances are that you are swamped with all the moving process, from packing to organising the big move that you forget to enjoy the excitement of moving to a new area.
Cambridgeshire has so much to offer including stunning architecture, historical buildings and lots of fun activities to do with the family.
We’ve listed our top tips to make your move a lot easier and help you look forward to all the good bits sooner!
Rent a self storage unit
Whether you are moving from another county or locally, it’s always worth investing in a self-storage unit to store your goods. St Neots self-store is located just 18 miles from Cambridgeshire and offers everything you need for a stress-free move. We also offer a collection service so you don’t have to worry about getting all your items to us.
It will also buy you some time to decorate your new place whilst your furniture is kept safe and secure in a unit. There’s nothing worse than getting splatters of paint all over your furniture.
Create a to-do list
Creating a to-do list would be one of the most useful things you do. Jot down all the tasks you need to do complete before the move, including packing, printing labels, de-cluttering old items etc. Plus you can also keep adding to the list as and when you remember things.
You can also create an inventory of all the boxes and large items that you need to take to the new house, so on the big day, you have everything under control.
Let’s face it no one likes to pack. Whether we are going on holiday or moving homes, we all dread the time when we have to try and pack our lives into boxes that never seem to be enough.
One trick to deal with the packing blues is to pack in advance. Start off with the items that you know you won’t need for a while. And then leave the essential items last, such as kitchenware and the kettle, of course.
Research the area
Spend some time to research the area, as you will be spending quite a lot of time moving to and from your new place. Dine at local restaurants, cafes and bars to get to know the locals.
