House Relocation Cover

You’ve found a new place to stay and are anticipating for the day you move in. While it can be an exciting new experience, you’ll need to have a proper plan and schedule to ensure that your move goes smoothly. As with all things that require you to make prior preparation, moving a house in Singapore will also require you to be prepared for some unforeseen circumstances. If you thought that you’ll only need to pack up your stuff, sort them out and book for a house moving service, you’re just halfway there in planning for a house move.


Imagine having to move out with tons of huge furniture and you didn’t ask for help from anyone. It’s certainly impossible for you to move them because (1) the furniture are bigger and heavier (if you’re small-sized); and (2) there’s too much for you to move at once. You have to admit that moving tons of things by yourself can be tedious if you’re not prepared or have no proper plans in place.


While there are people who are good at planning, there are those who prefer to do things at the last minute. You don’t have to be a good planner to know what you need to do but at the very least, you’re prepared and can come up with a backup plan for when things don’t go your way. For those who prefer to do things at the last minute, they’re bound to face some challenges and be under pressure when their moving day approaches.


Planning for a house move can be stressful as it requires you to put in a lot of effort and time. If you’re the kind of person who likes to procrastinate, you’re more likely to break under pressure or face unimaginable amount of stress. Imagine having to pack most of your things in a few hours before your scheduled house move. It’ll be a mess and you’re likely to forget some of your belongings during the packing process.


Moreover, if you haven’t schedule your house move with any residential moving company in Singapore, there’s a possibility that you’ll be left with very few quality moving personnel and type of lorry. You also won’t have the time to make a comparison to get the best deals on house moving service. If you need urgent hire of a house moving service, you’ll risk falling victim to scams. Making a last minute reservation will also cost you more than what you should pay.


Strategies to lessen the stress of moving

Although moving can be a stressful and tiring process, it doesn’t have to be that way with the following strategies:

  • Keep things organised – The most fundamental aspect of planning for a house move. By keeping things organised, you’ll at least have a flow to follow in case you need to change your plans. Creating a to-do list will also help to ensure proper execution of your plan. Another way is to pack your belongings based on which room it belongs to so that it’ll be easier to move them.

  • Do your research – Before you decide on hiring a house moving service, you’ll need to do your research to ensure that you’ll get your money’s worth. Go through the reviews of the house moving company, request for a quote and ask relevant questions. In the case of a last minute hire, you’ll have to be more meticulous so that you won’t be scammed.

  • Plan your move early – Early bird gets the worm. Just like the bird, you’ll be able to secure a quality house moving service if you set a schedule with them months in advance. That way they can arrange for the number of personnel and provide the right equipment based on your requests. If you intend to move during the school holidays, be prepared to hire your house movers early to avoid any disappointment.

  • Reach out for help – Moving out on your own can be a daunting task if it’s your first time. Ask your family or friends who have prior experience in moving house so that you’ll know what to expect.


How far in advance should you hire movers

As soon as possible! If you’re moving within Singapore, you might want to schedule as early as you can. When you schedule early, you’ll have plenty of house moving services to choose from and you get to compare the cost. It’ll also give you a peace of mind knowing that you have sorted out the logistics for your moving process. You also need to consider the amount of stuff you have and the hours you’ll need to pack everything. If you’re looking to DIY your moving process, you can choose to rent a lorry. Meanwhile, if you’re moving abroad, it’s highly recommended for you to schedule the logistics months in advance. This is to ensure that most of your belongings are moved in an orderly manner.
