Time Saving Help Moving House

How to Guides

Moving house is one of life’s most stressful activities. With so many moving parts to co-ordinate anything which will save you time is welcome.

To save you time moving house we have compiled some useful service providers for pretty much everything you will need when moving to a new home. Save time selecting broadband, switching utilities, buying or selling your home, finding boiler cover, home insurance and more. Make your move less stressful and save money whilst you do.

Buying or selling a home?

Reduce your stress and choose an award winning estate agent! Find lots of resources for buying and selling your home, and when you are ready book a valuation. Buy or sell property nationwide. Whether you’re looking to sell your property privately, online, or through a traditional estate agent, Yopa has a selection of guides should help you every step of the way.


Book a deep clean

Whether you need to book an end of tenancy clean, or a deep clean of your new home, its a good idea to book ahead so you can choose the day you want. A professional clean will make all the difference to help you feel at home. Decide which rooms you need to clean, and whether you need to clean blinds, windows, carpets or curtains too. If you are cleaning carpets you might want to allow a day or two before you add furniture. Professional cleaning typically dries faster, so take this into consideration before you book your furniture delivery. Don’t clean the carpets before you have workmen painting and decorating. If carpets have been cleaned before, you might want to ask shoes to be removed otherwise you will be back to square one.


Find a handyman

Moving house generates a lot of odd jobs. Whether it is taking care of small jobs at the old property such as filling holes, painting and decorating, carpet cleaning, furniture disassembly, plumbing, etc., booking a handyman will help make moving less stressful.

The new property will probably need the services of a handyman or tradesman to install curtain poles and blinds, install washing machine and dishwasher (if these items are not integrated), even assembling furniture, handing mirrors, TVs and pictures are all easier with a handyman around. Luckily finding a handyman is easier to do with online portals saving you time to identify and book a handyman.

If you are looking for a handyman or tradesman, take a look at these options:


Consider storage

Moving house is a great time to declutter your home. Even before you move, having access to storage can help you advertise your home better. Remove all personal items, declutter your home, and let your home stand out to potential buyers/renters.

Sometimes it isn’t possible to move out of the old property and into the new property on the same day, so having access to a storage facility means you can empty your old property and wait until the date to move into your new property.

Downsizing comes with its own unique challenges. If the downsize is not permanent, you might need to store some items which are not needed in your temporary home. Storage can accommodate an entire 1-bed, 2-bed or 4-bed house, or it can contain a specific quantity of items. Storage is charged by space needed and time needed.

If you need access to your stored items look for a storage facility near to your location, or if you don’t need access you can save money by choosing a facility in a lest costly part of the country. Rates can vary across the country.
