Moving to the Country

Article Image

Whether it's a 'sea change', a 'tree change' or just a job change, there's a lot to be said for escaping the hassles of the big city for a quiet life in the country. Just make sure you start your new, relaxed lifestyle off on the right foot with a stress-free moving experience.

Is the country lifestyle for you?

Before you commit to leaving the city, spend some time in your new country area and make sure you could actually live there. Talk to the local residents and research schools and amenities thoroughly.
Remember that some city luxuries like fast broadband, good mobile phone reception and pay-TV might not be available in your new area.

What size property do you need?

Because property is so much cheaper in the country, chances are you can afford a much bigger house than in the city. Don't get carried away - think carefully about how much space you'll actually need for you, your family, and your possessions. There's no point in having a huge country home if it's going to stay half empty!

What to take to the country

You won't need all of your possessions in the country, and you don't want to move more than you have to. Go through your belongings and think about which ones actually have a place in your new lifestyle. You might love your racing bike, but where exactly are you going to ride it on a hobby farm?

Make a smooth move

Getting specialised cross-country removalists to take care of your relocation will save you a lot of time and stress. Good movers will help you take care of utility reconnection, packing and unpacking, furniture freight, cleaning and secure storage.

Keep the neighbours happy

Don't annoy the neighbours before you've even moved in! Follow good moving etiquette to make sure you make a positive first impression in your new community.
