So, you have decided on moving to Spain.
Perhaps you love the idea of six figure houses going easily for five figures, maybe you like the weather in Spain and the lifestyle this beautiful land has to offer.
Well, whatever the reason is that has made you want to live under the Spanish sun, the fact remains you will have to relocate. You will be faced with tedious tasks, having to deal with packing tapes, bubble wraps, and packing boxes. Not only that, you will have to deal with the usual stress involving paperwork, especially if you are travelling overseas.
Well, I’m not here to scare you. House removals don’t have to be stressful. As a matter of fact, they can be pretty fun if you want to get ambitious about it. To help you alleviate the stress most homeowners come across when relocating, I have put down a few tips to help you along the process.
Assuming that you have moved several times in your life, chances are you know what to expect. Based on this assumption, it should not be hard to prepare for an upcoming move. In regards to this, it’s important to have a list of everything you need to get done up to the actual moving day. You will barely miss anything if you are prepared and organised. This means fewer frustrations if any at all.
2.Choose A Reputable Removals Company
Moving is stressful, and the last thing you need is an unscrupulous company handling your possessions. Ensure that you choose a company that is insured and registered with an address in Spain or the UK. Ideally, you can get a great company through recommendations from friends and relatives who have moved to Spain.
When choosing a company, it is best to do this early enough – two or three months in advance. You will find that some of the best companies specialising in house removals to Spain or Europe tend to be booked in advance. The good thing about this is that you will have enough time to assess the removals company and make a well-informed decision as a client.
3.Pack Fewer Things
You do not have to take everything with you. Do an inventory of all your possessions, i.e., what to give, what to keep, what to sell and what to throw away. By doing this, you will save so much money and energy in packing. By selling stuff you don’t need, you will earn more money, and if you give away items to charity, you will have helped other people. By downsizing, you will have experienced what we like to call a win-win situation.
4.Mark Your Boxes and Separate Important Items and Documents
You also want to ensure that your boxes are correctly labelled as to where it should be placed along with the contents inside. This avoids frustrations and confusion in the moving process. Also, ensure that relevant documents such as IDs, Passports, and property contracts are with you and not packed in with the rest of the items.
With these useful house removals tips, you will find the moving process to be easy and quite enjoyable.
