Moving Guide – Tips on Stress-Free Relocations

Relocating often means a change in circumstances which can mean a move to a new area. For people who are planning a move to Dorset, there are ways to make sure things go smoothly. One of the best ways to do this is to prepare as much as you can early. And don’t put things off until tomorrow if you can do them today.

Dorset is one of the best places to live in the UK. In fact, many would say you won’t find anywhere like it. With perfect beaches, idyllic seaside resorts and excellent weather, it’s no surprise that Dorset is a popular place to relocate to. For anyone who plans on being a Dorset resident, here are some tips to help reduce the stress of moving.

Top Tips on Reducing the Stress of Moving –

The number one way to make sure you avoid any issues when relocating is to give yourself lots of time. If you know that you’re moving in three months, don’t wait around. Write a list of every taskyou need to undertake and get a calendar out. Then, take each responsibility and assign a week to complete it.

If you contact us at Woods Removalsearly, we will be able to book you in for the exact date you need to move. What’s more, we can assist with any planning and questions you may have about Dorset. Another thing you’ll need to do is get rid of any clutter to reduce the volume of possessions you have to move.

Keep in contact with all the important parties every fortnight to check everything is on course. You need to make sure all your payments are made before the day of the move, or the seller won’t release the house keys. Make sure your bank manager is on top of this.

And just to cover all bases – have a contingency plan in case there is an unforeseen problem that prevents you from moving in. Woods Removals has storage unitsavailable, should you need storage to bridge any gaps in moving dates. Then you can find some temporary accommodation until the keys are ready.

Other Things to Remember When Relocating in Dorset –

You’ll need to do some online and in-person research as you move closer to the day of your relocation. Make a list of areas you like in Dorset and cross-reference average house prices for the type of property you want. This will give you an indication of what your budget needs to be.

Once you have a rough idea of about three or four different villages or towns you like, contact their local estate agents. They will be able to take your requirements and sift through suitable properties for viewings. An estate agent will also be able to make sure all the relevant checks have been undertaken.

It’s vital that you take the time to visit the areas in Dorset that interest you. And make sure that you stay overnight, ideally for several days to get a proper idea of what the place is like during the day and night. You can enjoy some of the entertainment and local restaurants and bars. You may even have your favourite place to eat and drink before you move in.

If you have a young family, then you’ll need to contact the local schools to try and find a place for them before you relocate. It can take months to do this, so start as early as possible. You’ll also need to find somewhere that has decent access to healthcare facilities.
