Moving house is stressful enough, but it’s even harder on our pets when they don’t understand why they’re being moved!
Changing address can often lead to pets going missing (in search of their previous home) or behavioural problems, and sometimes even ill health.
But there are a few steps you can take to make the move easier for your pet
When is a box a box? And when is it not a box?!
Here at Box Depot we sell recycled cardboard boxes.
Many people assume that "used boxes" or "recycled boxes" are those piles of boxes you see outside shops of an evening, waiting on the binman to collect.
But it takes a lot for those boxes to have got into that state ...
Joy of joys!
Not only have you found your new home, but you’ve managed to sell your old home … result!!
But the prospective new owners want to move in next week
Eek! Don’t panic. It can be done with a little bit of concentrated organisation …
By Day 3, chances are you’re feeling tired and stressed.
But you got loads done on Day 2 so you should be feeling proud of yourself.
So take a quick breather, make sure you’re getting enough sleep and you’re eating (relatively!) healthy; and stick the kettle on for another cuppa before we get stuck into Day 3
And we’re on to Day 4.
By now you’re probably getting tired and frustrated and wishing that all these moving boxes would just go away!
But just remember, you’re halfway there now!
You’ve got through the hardest part and now there’s just a few last tasks to get done!
Day 5 means that you only have a few days left before Moving Day (eek!)
While you’re probably feeling tired and wishing your move was over already, if you look back over the last 4 days, you’ll see that you’ve accomplished loads already and packed the majority of your household space.
So for today, we’ll concentrate on storage – extra wardrobes, garages, attics, and everything in between!
By Day 6 you’re exhausted, stressed, and no doubt panicked.
While you really only have 1 full day left to pack the rest of your stuff, hopefully by now you’ll see that you’re almost ready to go.
Today is the day to concentrate on all the last minute things – like clearing out the fridge, getting your essentials together and taking apart all the furniture.
Let’s get started!
