Did you know that flat prices have risen the most out of all types of property in the UK? The average price of an apartment has gone up by over £1,000 each month since 2008, while the cost of other residential properties has risen by less. Home buyers in Gloucester are finding that flats have increased in price, but that they are also often more affordable in general than a house. Moving into a new flat in Gloucester is exciting but it can also be stressful. Here’s how to keep calm and move into a new Gloucester flat with less stress and more happiness.
Get to Know the Layout of Your New Flat
Flats in Gloucester come in all shapes and sizes. Make sure you are prepared for your move by investigating closely how the rooms are laid out, where you will have space for major pieces of furniture, and where you have space for storage. If possible measure up properly before moving day so you have a good idea of where things will go. This will make the move much easier.
Start Packing as Soon as Possible
All the removal companies Gloucester offers will say the same thing – start packing as soon as you know you are moving to a new flat. You will have a less stressful experience when you start packing early. You have more time to pack the items you don’t use every day, and can leave the final weeks leading up to a move to get the daily things in boxes.
Keep as Organised as Possible
Moving into a Gloucester flat is much easier when you keep a good handle on what you need to do, and when. When you are using Gloucester movers, make sure everyone has the same details about the specifics of the move and that you are all on the same page for the time scale and time frame of the move. Keep all details about the move in one place – you could have a folder, or a space on the computer, or download an app with checklists and all details inside it.
Coordinate Your Deliveries
If you are moving into your first flat you may not have all the furniture you need and will be getting it delivered from the store. It helps if you can have big furniture delivered on moving day itself so your movers can bring it into the flat and you won’t have to hire extra help to get it into your home. Smaller items should be scheduled for the week following your move in.
