Posted By dm_holly On February 19, 2014

If you're moving away it helps to have a plan for the whole process. Here are some tips to ensure you next move goes as smoothly as possibleHow to make sure your move goes smoothly

If you're relocating for work it's more important than ever that the moving process goes off without a hitch.

There are so many different things that need to be organised, arranged, packed up and shipped over that it can be a daunting concept to even think about. However, with a few simple tricks you can ensure both you and your possessions come out the other side in one piece.

Find a reputable moving company

If you're going to be packing up a significant amount of your things it pays to get a professional moving company to help you out.

Ask around for recommendations from people you trust, and do your own research online to see whether a moving company is up to your standards.

Once you've chosen the movers you want to work with, it pays to keep them in the loop about all of the relevant details. That means getting in touch to confirm they know which items will need extra care, which will need special equipment to move and whether they're expected to help with assembly of furniture.

Keep the essentials close

In the chaos of packing up everything else it's easy to forget those smaller things you need to keep by your side on the actual moving day.

That includes directions to your destination if you're driving, your essential toiletries, a change of clothes if necessary and any cleaning supplies you might need to make your new home presentable.

However, if you have the advantage of living in long term accommodation at Mantra you won't have to worry about making your new place immediately liveable as that's already done for you. Instead, you can simply move in and relax.

Before you leave

It's crucial to tie up those loose ends before you leave, or you could be paying for services you don't need anymore.

Remember to disconnect any utilities and set up a forwarding address so you can get your mail delivered. It also pays to plan ahead by packing whatever you don't need urgently as early as possible.
