Let’s face it, moving into a new home can be quite overwhelming. In Malta, people tend to live with their parents for a longer time. This is mostly due to the tedious journey first-time buyers go through, as we would rather spend time saving up on a deposit for a home-loan rather than renting a property. In other circumstances, people will want to buy a second home to accommodate a growing family, or sometimes the opposite, when kids have left home and you realise a smaller home would be more practical, especially without those burdensome stairs! The following points should aid you in your considerations! Plan ahead.
1. Organise & list
Organise your move, to ensure that moving day runs smoothly.
Apart from the obvious furniture pieces you will want to take with you, there’s also the small stuff that will need to be moved on D day! Make a list of what you are transporting and write on each box what’s inside it. You’ll thank yourself later! Buy some good tape and marking pens. The list might include a lot more than you initially think, including many items that were once neglected, but you now realise you cannot live without them! Your decorations and kitchen items will surely be in the list, otherwise rendering you useless behind the stove. As well as your cosmetics and bizarre toothbrush you have nurtured a fetish for.
2. Book the right transportation
By planning out your move, you will get to know exactly how many boxes you have to transport. Ask your friends and family to help you, tor else, go pro!
3. Get rid of clutter
You have the opportunity to sort out your belongings, so that you don’t take stuff that you no longer use to your next home. This will save you time to unpack and a lot of space from your new abode. Always recycle plastics, paper & other recyclable materials. Donate clothing that you don’t use anymore or that has gone out of fashion.
4. Protect valued items
If you have already lived in a house and moving to another, the chances are that you already own some valuable items, or consequently, breakable objects. Use bubble wrap to avoid braking them, and adopt super attention!
5. Keep an eye on important papers
Gather all your utility bills, guarantees, certificates, bank records, contracts and other important papers in a box file. Keep these close and guarded.
