Planning a House Move with Handy

Like anything else, a successful house moving starts with a PLAN. First, draft a moving calendar that includes a timeline. Everyone’s timeline will look different depending on how much notice is given before the move. Some people will have two months and others might have a few weeks. Ideally, start a month before for a smooth transition. Plan for utilities movement such as Gas, Electricity, Internet, Sky Boxes and other time taking transfers first.

Planning a House Move Next, include a realistic moving budget. Weigh the pros and cons of hiring professional movers. If you are moving interstate or another country, it might make sense to hire professional movers. However, for small distances a choice to consider doing it yourself by hiring a truck from a rental company is worth the money. Completing the move yourself will cost at least 50% less than using professional movers
