Your moving day to Kennington, in London, will definitely be one of the most stressful times in your life, but with proper preparation and professional assistance you will manage in no time. Before you know it you will be at the new house or flat, unpacking the boxes and arranging the furniture pieces and feeling good about the move and proud of the work you’ve done. House moves are tough experiences because they include numerous steps and plenty of details to take care of. The levels of stress are usually elevated throughout the moving day. However, there are some things that can help you manage a little smoother and these things are actually complete musts for a successful relocation.

Start early with preparing for your house move – it’s a big task for the family and the only way to ensure that it goes damage and problem-free is if you simply organize it well. The day before the moving day you need to be all packed and organized. The moving day usually begins early in the morning, especially if it’s a long-distance relocation. Pack essential items in a bag or a box and take it in your vehicle – these are items that you will need during the first few days after the move, when it will be too hectic around the house. Pack toiletries, documents, clothing, footwear, electronics, etc. Each member of the family needs their own bag of essentials.

If you have young children, it’s a good idea to hire somebody to look after them during the moving day when you will be too busy loading the moving truck or with last-minute packing tasks. Another option is to ask a friend or a relative to stop by and look after your children. Children get sad and frustrated when they move house so be considerate to their emotions and understanding at all times.

Prepare a supply of food that you can take with you during the journey to London and even cook some of it after you arrive. You might not have time to actually go and eat out, so it’s best to be prepared. Prepare some sandwiches, buy a packet of pasta or soup and don’t forget the food for your pet too.

It’s essential to have the phone numbers of each company and person involved in the house relocation, in case you need to call the movers’ supervisor, the van driver or the person who prepared the insurance documents for the move. Make sure you have enough cash for tipping the movers after the relocation is done. You have all the rights to make a complaint if there are items that are broken or damaged after the move, so make sure you go through all the boxes within a couple of days after moving. The more you wait to make a complaint, the less your chances are to be fully refunded.

Check the directions before you head to London with your car to make sure that you are taking the shortest and fastest route to your destination. Stay calm throughout the moving day – as long as you have followed a detailed checklist you have no reason to worry about the outcome of the house move.
