How to Make Packing Feel Easy – Part 2

When you start the process of moving to a new house, planning is the key to a successful and less stressful relocation. And that’s why every aspect of your removal should come from a robust organisation with plenty of preparation time. If you take the planning stage of your move seriously and put effort into it, everything is likely to fall into place.

During many years of moving people in Berkshire, we often get questions about the most important part of a relocation. While it’s true that every stage is vital, the packing of your possessions is crucial. The aim is to have no damages or breakages during transit, which is easier said than done, and most people anticipate some damage to occur. At Camp Hopson, we see things differently, and it’s a good idea to let our experts pack for you.

How to Prepare for Moving Home in Winter

While most people prefer moving during spring or summer, we don’t always have the luxury of choice.  Winter is by far the least popular season to relocate during, and it’s easy to see why. The weather is harsher and there’s less daylight hours to work with. This can lead to more hazardous moving conditions, and safeguarding your possession is vitally important. 

That’s why it’s crucial to understand what you’re up against and how to navigate a winter relocation. This includes planning thoroughly and accounting for colder and wetter conditions. We’ll discuss a six-step preparation for your upcoming move this winter without it causing any undue stress or problems.

No matter how well-executed your moving plan, and the well-founded ideas you have had for the next phase in life, there are always snakes and ladders in the game of life.   Relocating is notorious for being unpredictable, and we don’t know how we will really feel once we are in the new home and out of the old one.   If your expectations don’t meet the reality you have entered, then you may find yourself in a state of regret about the move.  It is easy to find examples of this through friends’ networks and on the internet.  Sometimes the new place just doesn’t quite work, and this can be hugely disappointing.   Often people invest in the idea that a new home will restore their relationship or bring about a whole new wave of positivity and if these things do not come to fruition, there is not only the physical unpacking to deal with but the emotional unpacking as well.

Leave your old habits behind when you move house

A fresh start is obviously on the cards when you are moving home.  However, there is evidence to suggest that moving house can really be the catalyst of change in your life, right down to some of your most stubborn habits.  We all know the resignation not keeping up our new year’s resolutions or meeting our own targets.  Settling back on the sofa for another episode of Netflix rather than stepping up in your own schedule.    Did you tell yourself you’d only have four glasses of wine a week? Or perhaps you swore blind you’d finish writing that novel, converting that loft space or reducing your energy consumption. Help is at hand. Research published earlier this year indicates that ingrained habits are easier to break during the first three months after moving house. The clean-slate effect of moving gives you a unique window of opportunity for change. Researchers at the University of Bath found that habits are reinforced when the things around us stay the same. Conversely, when they change, our habit-breaking efforts get emboldened and are more likely to succeed. It’s called the ‘discontinuity effect’.
