Your Construction Manager will be in regular contact with you to ensure you are well-informed about your handover day. As it approaches there is some administration and preparation required to ensure your transition runs as smoothly as possible.
Having a list of tasks and things to remember can help remove that overwhelming feeling and break out your tasks into digestible chunks and time groups or priorities.
Start with the things you can arrange well in advance and will happen automatically if scheduled in advance…..
Discontinue or redirect essential services
Advising of your address change – who needs to know?
Then think about what you need to arrange for the move. Here are some thought starters…
Planning the move
Will you use a moving company?
If you are not using a company, who will help you on the day?
Have you decluttered?
Have you thought about your furry friends?
The week of the move is going to be busy and stressful. There are jobs that may seem like they need to be completed all at once. Make a list by day based on what you need to use up to the last minute, so you have a clear plan. Here is an example of the tasks that may feature….
The week before you move
The day before your move
Have a good sleep the night before and have breakfast nice and early! Dress for exercise and be ready to get moving! Make sure you have water and snacks on hand and sunscreen or raincoats depending on the weather.
This can be the toughest part of the move! If you can afford a professional cleaning company, then this will be money well spent. If not, ensure you have plenty of time and help as it is always a bigger task than you imagine.
This can take a wee while so don’t pressure yourself to have everything perfect within a couple of days. Make sure your beds are made and your kitchen essentials are on hand on moving day and enjoy the process of creating your new spaces as you unpack your belongings.
Don’t forget to pick up your pets and kids but make sure you take a moment to breathe and enjoy your new home for a couple of minutes first!
