New Surroundings

Not only this, but It’s ideal to familiarise yourself with the area you’re relocating to, find out where transport links, shops and parks are, this can help you feel less secluded in the first few weeks of relocating.

Organise your belongings

There is nothing worse than relocating to your new lovely home and having to swim through a sea of boxes trying to find what you need. Labelling is key to organisation, label what is in each box, what room they are for and if they are fragile. This will save you a lot of time, and could help protect that fine China from breaking during the whole relocating process.

It’s also worth packing a separate box for the first few days, this will allow you to take your time unpacking and you can easily access the essentials without stressing.
