How are you planning on moving into your new home?

Are you worried about moving into your new home from G.J. Gardner Homes?

You might be months into your new home building with G.J. Gardner Homes, but have you thought about how you're going to move in? Your home design will be beautiful, so you're going to want to unpack your things and make the space your own as soon as you can.

However, moving home is one of the most stressful things a person goes through. That's according to a Health Status article. It's on par with finding out you have a major illness, or losing your job.

It makes sense, too, because you're uprooting your life and potentially moving into a new neighbourhood, or a new city. There's so much to sort out!

  • Where your kids will go to school;
  • A new bus route or way into work;
  • The closest supermarket;
  • Redirecting your mail to the new address;
  • Meeting the neighbours (and hoping you'll get along with them); and, of course,
  • Moving in and unpacking.

How can you make your move less stressful?

If you're already worrying about the most efficient way to move into your new home, it's time to hand the reins over to a professional moving company. It doesn't matter who, as long as they're not going to run off with all of your personal items! It's not advised to look in the local newspaper for a man with a van - you never know who'll turn up at your door.

When you have a professional helping you, the heavy lifting, transport and unpacking is all taken care of. That means you don't have to take lots of time off work to sort it all out yourself.

A Huffington Post article from November 2015 suggests some steps you should take to make your move more streamlined and relaxing. You'll be worried about how much you'll see your old friends if you're moving far away, so make concrete plans to see them in the future, either at your new home or back at theirs - or meet in the middle.

Catching up with old friends after a big move is an important part of the process.Catching up with old friends after a big move is an important part of the process.

You also have to take care of yourself emotionally. There's nothing wrong with reaching out to a friend for a bit of support. It's actually recommended. Make sure you see someone close to you regularly in the lead-up to the big day, because you'll likely need them.

When that day comes, you'll be glad you sorted out a professional team to help you move. Your brand-new G.J. Gardner Homes design is ready! To start your own building process, get in touch with the team today.
