Moving = Stress!

I hate moving. Well I love it because it is about newness, putting a stamp on your own place and spending hours fawning over paint sample pots and Ikea catalogues, but I actually find it really really stressful, infact moving to the home we currently live in was more stressful than waiting for my degree results, organising a wedding in 6 weeks and being the foreman of a jury at a massive trial!  Once you begin there is just so much you need to think about.

At work, I found it really stressful moving one floor whilst we had some painting and decorating done, as well as a new carpet being laid and some new windows installed.  I was responsible for the whole lot, it sort of comes under my ever-growing work title, and again I know nothing about half of these things, it isn't something I have to deal with on a daily basis and it takes me totally out of my comfort zone, whilst being a bit of a learning curve.  Thankfully, I do have some friends who work in the legal sector who are always on hand to help out, advise and help me work through legal matters.

Finding the right legal services is so important, it doesn't matter where the come from, it could be as simple as choosing Cambridge Estate Agents whilst living in London, to using your friend who runs a firm at the end of the road. What matters is that it feels right to you.  There is so much to think about and most of it costs money, so getting it is right is really important.  When we moved we needed someone who specialised in leaseholds and freeholds and then came structural surveys and the never ending wait for your mortgage approval, even if you know it is going to happen, that dreaded wait is just so terrifying.

But none of this should be the case and having the right help could make it all go much more swimmingly and after all, this is an exciting time, a new start and a chance to get your inner Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen out!

Do you find moving stressful? Do you have any tips should I ever want to do it again?

  1. I agree moving is so stressful- I found my last move more stressful than waiting for my degree results to come through as well haha. We didn't have any movers helping us so had to do the whole lot ourselves, and I was terrified of my stuff getting broken. Thankfully it all made it in one piece! x

  3. Yes moving's stressfull, but it's the kind of stress I like! It's an exciting stress. Having said that we haven't moved for 5 years now which is by far the longest I've been anywhere in my life! (Maybe it's time to move!!!)

  4. We are looking to buy our first home and some days even the thought of it seems stressful and occasional almost impossible... We plan to start looking for some help in the new year to try and make more sense of it all!

  9. Moving is a painful thing the weeks before and after. I moved house in September and still haven't place my stuff. Its the time when you see you have too much stuff.

  11. I've only even moved out of my parents and into this house, obviously I then had very little stuff to bring with me.
    I would have to move the entire contents of this house

  15. Great article. I love moving, too. Most of all I love unpacking. It is like you open presents. Sometimes I get surprised by what is in the boxes. It is important to sign them very carefully, though. If you make a mess with the numbering, it will be a disaster. Greetings! http://manwithavanharrow.co.uk/
