Changing Career and Changing Home

Not for everyone, but quite often it is a case that when someone changes their career or company that they are working for, this may involve also moving your home. Some people are happy to spend a few hours a day commuting to and from work each day, others refer to live closer to work reducing the travel time and expense and also having more time to spend with their family. With the ever increasing rise in fuel costs, it is becoming a lot more economical and environmentally friendly, to live closer to work.

Deciding Where to Live

If you are moving to a new area that you do not know, then it can be hard to know what a good area for you to live in. Some things you may want to take into account are;




Doctor/Hospital/ Dentist

Council Tax



Any or all of these points could have a big impact on where you choose to live. It is worthwhile speaking to your new employer regards the surrounding areas and best places to live as they will be able to give you some firsthand information. Other than that you can do a lot of research on the internet by looking at the local newspapers website and local forums and notice boards. These can be a great insight into your new local area and can give you all sorts of details from local clubs and groups to services on offer within the area. You do not want to rush into making a decision though and always make sure you do not stretch the budget too much.

Preparing for the Move

For most of us it is a lot easier to bring in a professional removing company in order to assist with our move to a new area. There are many companies out there offering moving services on either a national or international basis. It is advisable that you get as many quotes as you can from various companies and also make sure that all of them have the correct accreditation to the relevant association, such as the British Association of Removers. This will make sure that the company you end up choosing are professional and work within strict criteria to a set level, set out by the association. The quotes that you will receive may vary quite a lot when comparing them. The cheapest option is not always the best though. One thing that you need to check on is the level of insurance you are covered for, in case of any accidents or loss during the move. Some companies may have better policies than others. It is always good to try and get personal recommendations as well if possible.

Moving Day

So you have chosen the company you are going to use and the big day has finally arrived. The great thing about using a professional house removal company is that all you need to do is open the door and let them in. They do everything for you. Watch them as they descend on your house armed with removal boxes, packing tape and packing material. They can work at quite a pace packing everything you own into boxes securely and safely. You will be surprised at how quick this can be done. Then when everything is packed onto the truck, it is off to your new home. When the truck arrives at your new home with your possessions, they will do everything in reverse just as quickly. They will unpack everything and put it in the room that you dictate, while you stand back and watch. Before you know it you new home has all your possessions in and you will be settled in no time. Using a professional removal service does cost a bit of money, but what it saves in time and also stress is well worth it in my opinion. Moving home and also job can be stressful enough as it is, so anything that you can do to relieve that is definitely worthwhile doing. Before you know it, it will be Monday morning and time to start your new job!
