Article Image

When you are moving home there are a large number of mistakes that you can make. The last thing you need during an already stressful time is to make a mistake to make your life even harder. Learning what these mistakes are can help you to make your move as easy and stress free as possible. To help you achieve this, this article contains a few of the things that you will want to be careful to avoid when you move home.

Damaging walls

When you are moving your furniture, you need to be careful not to damage your walls or other parts of the house. A lot of pieces of furniture are large making them awkward to maneuver around. This makes the chance that they will brush up against the wall relatively high. The problem with this is that they can very easily scratch or scuff the paint of the walls. If you aren't careful it may even cause a dent. This can be problem as it is something that you will have to deal with during a time where you are already very busy and possibly stressed. If you are renting, it may be in your rental agreement to fix this and if you own the house you may need to fix it to make the house more marketable.

Protecting your fragile items

Failure to protect your fragile items is a common mistake that could definitely cost you. Much of the time, fragile items are also valuable. If fragile items are not packed properly with adequate padding to keep them safe, it is very easy for these items to break during transit. Moving is an expensive ordeal and the last thing that you want is to have to spend more money. We recommend packing fragile items with bubble wrap or soft padding and ensuring these move as little as possible during transit.

Organising a moving company

A moving company is a vital part of any home move. Failure to organize one on time could make your move much harder than it needs to be. By not organising a moving company, you will have to transport all of your belongings to your new home yourself. For many people, this will involve multiple trips and hiring a trailer or van. If you are moving somewhere nearby, this amounts to an inconvenience. If you are moving a large distance away however, such as interstate, this could make your move near impossible. Because of this, it is of utmost importance that you ensure that you have a reliable moving company properly booked in advance.

Forgetting something

Failure to properly plan your house move can result in a wide array of issues. The biggest of these problems is forgetting to do something. Depending on what it is that you forgot to do, you may find yourself desperately scrambling on the day of your move to get it done on time. This can end up costing you both time and money and can add to an already stressful process, and that's assuming that you realise that you have forgotten it. If you don't realise, it could spell disaster for you during your move.
