It might seem like one of the strangest things you’ve heard people do – moving house while on holiday. How would that even work? A weird idea to some but let me get to it and explain how moving house while on holiday is the best thing you can ever do to reduce the stress that is moving to a new property.

According to an article on the Telegraph, “two-thirds of people voted moving house top of their stress list, with it triggering more anxiety than relationship breakdowns, divorce and starting a new job.” So, we can all agree how stressful and challenging moving to a new place is. If you could, I know you would be well away from the moving process and instead would be sipping on Sangrias at a sunny Spanish beach. I mean, who wouldn’t?

The answer is to ring the Handy Squad London handyman service to the rescue. It’s not their first rodeo and they’ve been helping Londoners move goods since 2005! And even tackle odd jobs at your old place to ensure you’ll get the full deposit. They are experienced tradesmen who are friendly, polite and CRB checked, so you know your home would be in safe hands.

But before you dial 0800-0-12-12-12, the most important thing before moving home is to prepare everything by creating a checklist of items or following an online moving house checklist. This will ensure everything will be ready for them to collect and move to the new house. And don’t forget to organise your boxes according to what’s inside and to label them, otherwise, you’ll be looking for a spoon in your office supplies box!

A great tip when moving to a new home is to use Royal Mail’s mail redirection service, as it guarantees that all your mail will be redirected to your new address, so you won’t miss any important documents and it will prevent your personal details from falling into the wrong hands.
