New Year’s Resolutions to Make for a Better Move

Moving to a Larger Home in Halifax

As 2016 approaches, there are a number of ways you can begin to improve the  overall setup of your house and life, should you need to move in the coming year.  Resolutions tend to be broken very quickly, but if you keep your ambitions small, then you can make great changes that can significantly improve your overall ability to make a transition such as moving houses!  As we always say on the Viktoria moving blog, preparation is the key to a quick and painless move.  So for 2016 we have put together a list of things you can do to prep for the big day, happy moving!

Categorize your belongings in a meaningful way.

If one thing is certain, it’s that you can optimize your life in a lot of ways simply through the power of organization.  By clearly organizing and labelling your belongings, you not only know where they are at all times, you can move them from place to place without worrying about the locations of specific items.  By boxing things of similar values together, you are able to anticipate when and how to move these items, should you need to over the coming year.

 Keep your space clean

This one is underrated.  No one likes to spend the time after a move cleaning your space, depending on the size of your house, this could be close to a 2 day job, that’s 2 days taken away from completing the moving process and setting up your new house.  A good way to avoid this problem is to maintain your space and keep it clean so that moving is a breeze.  In 2016, it would be of great moving benefit to maintain your outdoor area, clean behind any shelves or appliances and keep all bathrooms and kitchens clean.  Not only does this mean you could move in an instant, but you also get to live in a welcoming home.

 Keep an eye out for yearly deals

Now that a fresh year has begun, it would be a good time to begin looking for special deals at certain times of year.  When moving houses, the costs can pile up and can become a source of stress for you and your family.  By keeping an eye out throughout 2016 for fantastic deals, you will be able to plan effectively should you want to move house.  Good companies will honour these deals later into the year if you plans change so make sure to do your research.

Keep your options open

In today’s society, there can be a tendency to want to opt for the best of everything.  If you are lucky enough to have the freedom of choice to move to multiple places, then it is worth keeping your mind open, who knows, the best, may not always be the best for you.  The same can be applied to whichever moving service you eventually choose, depending on your moving needs, different moving services might be able to fit your needs differently, so once again, research and preparation is key.

As 2016 comes into effect, it’s important to look into the ways that you can improve yourself, and although many resolutions are broken quickly, we hope that these small changes can be made in your life, to make a transition such as moving easier on both yourself and your family.  Happy New Year from Viktoria Movers!
