Not Filling Out All of the Paperwork

Buying a new home requires a large amount of paperwork to be filled out. You might become confused and forget to submit some vital documents. If you are unsure about whether everything is correct, you should work closely with the estate agent to ensure that all the paperwork is completed without any mistakes.

Keep all the paperwork together in a single file so that it can be accessed easily. Create photocopies of all the papers and store them in a safe place. It might also be a good idea to have electronic copies of all the documents available on the hard drive of your computer.

Once all the paperwork has been completed, you will be able to move onto the next phase of the move.

Choosing a ‘Bargain Basement’ Moving Firm

You might be tempted to save some money by choosing a moving firm which offers the lowest ‘bargain basement’ rates. This might seem like a good idea at the time, but this tactic should definitely be avoided. ‘Bargain basement’ companies often don’t take pride in their work, which could lead to your furniture and other belongings getting damaging on moving day.

Not Throwing Away Enough Items

Over the years, you might have collected hundreds of items which are gathering dust in your attic. These unused items will take up necessary space in your new house, so it is important that you create a checklist of items which can be definitely thrown away or sold. You will then have enough space in your new house without cluttering up the attic or the spare bedroom.

Not Planning the Floor Space Beforehand

After the move has been completed, the last thing you want to have to do is spend hours moving furniture around. Why not plan the arrangement of the furniture before you move? You will be able to quickly move the furniture into position before having a relaxing first day in your new home.

Moving Delicate Items With the Rest of the Furniture

You might be tempted to move delicate items alongside the rest of the furniture in order to save time. However, this could lead to fragile pieces of furniture being damaged beyond repair. Move these more delicate items separately so that they will arrive at the new house in one piece. You won’t regret making the extra arrangements.
