Packing Tips when Moving House

Packing Tips when Moving Home

In this post we have detailed a few important tips to think about when packing for a house move.

Packing when moving house can be a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be. Here are some tips to help make the process a little easier:

1. Start early

Don’t leave packing until the last minute. Start packing up non-essential items a few weeks before the move. This will make the process less stressful and give you more time to focus on the essentials.

2. Get organised

Label all your boxes with the contents and the room they need to go in. This will make unpacking a lot easier.

3. Pack heavy items first

Pack heavier items first so they are at the bottom of the box. This will make the box easier to carry and prevent items from shifting during the move.

4. Use packing materials

Use packing materials such as bubble wrap or packing paper to protect your items.

5. Don’t overpack

Don’t overpack your boxes. This will make them difficult to carry and could cause items to break.

6. Get help

If you are feeling overwhelmed, ask friends or family to help with packing.

Moving into a new house with a dog

Moving House with Pets

Pets provide us with companionship, love, and laughter. They are there for us when we are happy and when we are sad. They are part of the family. In this blog post, we look at how moving home may affect dogs and other animals?

Dogs, cats and other animals can be affected by moving home because they can become anxious and stressed in new environments. It is important to try and make the transition as smooth as possible for them by taking them for walks in the new area and getting them used to their new home gradually.

Below we have detailed a few important things to remember when moving house with a Dog.

  • Make sure your dog is microchipped and registered with your new address
  • Ensure your dog is vaccinated and up to date with their worming and flea treatments
  • Research the area you are moving to, in advance, to make sure there are dog-friendly parks and beaches nearby
  • Pack your dog’s favourite toys and blankets to help them settle into their new home
  • Introduce your dog to their new home gradually, letting them explore a little bit each day
  • Create a safe space for your dog in their new home, with their bed, food and water bowl, and toys

Things to remember when moving house with a cat

  • Ensure your cat is microchipped and up to date with their vaccinations. This will help to ensure that they can be easily identified if they happen to escape during the move.
  • Keep them indoors for at least a week before the move, and for a week after, to give them time to adjust to their new surroundings.
  • Make sure you have a designated ‘safe room’ for them to stay in during the move itself, where they can hide away if they start to feel overwhelmed.

Truck in Dublin City Office Move

Planning your office move

Moving is a stressful but regular part of life. It’s never an easy decision to make regardless of if it’s a household move or a business move. While many businesses start out in smaller premises to save money, many find they have to move to a new space once their needs change. This could be down to rapid growth, a better location or being closer to your target market. It’s all too easy to get bogged down in paperwork and cardboard boxes that pile up during this process, meanwhile you still have a business to run. To make this process a little easier we’ve compiled a list to help you plan ahead so your office move goes as smoothly as possible.

1: Be clear about your reasons for moving:

To find your new commercial location, you should first think about why you are relocating your office. Moving your office is a big change and big changes in business are often risky. You should be crystal clear on why you feel a move is necessary and essential for your business. Some of the more common reasons for moving an office are:

Lower property costs:

Property costs can be very high for some businesses and rising real estate costs could be a huge motivation for moving to a newer (and cheaper) space. You may be searching for a cheaper location or a property that has similar rental costs but better amenities.

Better opportunities to find new talent:

You might be struggling to find qualified, skilled individuals for your business because your location is too remote or requires a long commute. Moving to a more convenient, central location could help improve your employee pool immensely.

Get closer to your target market:

Your current location might not place you close enough to your target market and your business may be suffering as a result. Finding a location that puts you closer to your target market could help improve business.

Improved lifestyle for you and your employees:

You might be a small business who are looking for a new location that is closer to your home and/or the homes of your most key employees. You might also want to improve your workplace culture by moving closer to other amenities such as outdoor areas, restaurants/lunch spots or other businesses that could potentially compliment the culture of your business.

Opportunity for business growth:

Maybe you settled on your current location when you were just starting out and now you realise that it’s not the best place to continue growing your business.

A few questions to consider before moving:

When do you want to move by?
Is there a deadline?
Where are you moving to?
When do you have to or want to move by?
What constraints do you have with your current office?

Hire an Office Move Broker

2: Hire a broker

A broker is an individual who can help you find property and works as a go between, between you and your estate agent. A good broker will be able to help you find an appropriate property that will satisfy your business needs without breaking the bank. They tend to specialise in certain types of buildings and areas so once you determine what you need from your new location, look for a broker who is specialised and experienced.

It’s advisable to try and hire a broker early in your moving process so that they have time to present plenty of location options to you. Your real estate agent can help you find the right broker for your needs, alternatively you can talk to other contacts in your business community for recommendations.
