When you find yourself ready to up sticks and move to south London, there are so many things to think about that it can be a very daunting time in your life. The process of moving everything that you own from one place to another is an arduous one, no matter how much you own, or how far you have to travel. The best way to make sure that the move is as easy as possible, is to organise your house removal to Bermondsey carefully, so that there are no nasty surprises along the way.
The first key to organisation is to plan the process adequately, and give yourself time in which to get the whole thing done. Allow a good month in advance of the move to start thinking about the task ahead, so that you have enough time to work out how the move will fit in around your work schedule. Doing it this way will mean that a little work every day, for an hour or so in the evenings, will be all you need to do until just before the actual move. If you leave everything until the last minute, then there is a great chance that you will find yourself rushing the whole thing into a few days of madness, which will be very stressful for you, as well as potentially problematic for your work schedule.
Moving to Bermondsey from the country may mean downsizing, and you may realise that you need to get rid of some of your household clutter in order to make the transition as smooth as possible, and make your new home a clean and spacious environment. Heading to a car boot is a great way to get rid of a large quantity of items in one day, especially if you price your things low for quicker sales. Just be careful that you do not go off and buy anything from any of the other sellers, or you may well find you leave with more junk than you came with! That said however, certain car boots and larger sales can be a great place to pick up bargains on furniture for the new house, so do not be too strict on yourself!
If you need to keep things but they will not fit in your new place, then look in to storage. Obviously storage is an expensive commodity, so finding a relative or friend who has some space may be a better option. If not, then there are a great many storage places in south London, and even more so in the surrounding suburban areas. Using a lock up in the country may well be cheaper than using a city based one, so do your research before you buy, as it can save you a great deal of money in the long run. Make sure that you have a long term plan for the items in storage, or you may find that you just waste a load of money on a unit full of items that you end up getting rid of anyway...
During the move, make sure that everyone is well refreshed with drinks and snacks, it will keep everyone on your side all day, and help relations between you and the movers. Start early in the day so that you are traveling during the middle, and avoid any heavy traffic that may disrupt your journey. If you have children then try and have them looked after elsewhere, as small kids can be particularly dangerous underfoot, with your removal men working throughout the house.
