New job = New home

Hi there, I’m Tom and I live in London like 8.674 million people do. Can you imagine how big city is it? My boss is a good guy, but I was fired for reasons beyond me. October is a hard month to looking for a new job. Whatever, I didn’t give up and after one month I found a job. Everything was perfect except one.

I live in a small cozy apartment in а nice neighborhood with my girlfriend. How I said before London is a big city. Unfortunately, my new workplace is far away from my home.metro-station-111501_640 I didn’t have choice, I had to move out. After a week searching I didn’t find anything so I hired an Estate Agent.

Moving to another place is not so easy. First we had to pack up our stuff. I found some good tips on I will write down just some of them here:

1.Start collecting boxes at least a month (and preferably more) before the moving date.

2.Gather all required packing supplies and moving boxes of different sizes. You will need different sizes of strong moving boxes to pack items of different sizes.

3.Gather some old clothes you can use for padding. Instead of buying feet and feet of bubble wrap or handfuls and handfuls of packing peanuts, turn to your clothes to provide that padding.

4.Take photos of complicated set ups, like the back of your TV.

5.Make a spacious packing station at your current residence. You’ll want a nice, wide open space where you can drag and drop all your stuff and then expedite the packing process.

6.Start packing – and don’t pack air. Wrap each individual item properly with enough layers of wrapping sheets, bubble wrap, or clothes. Place items inside a box with extreme care in the best position possible to avoid damages.

7.Make sure to pack everything that belongs in a particular room together in a room-labeled box. This makes unpacking easier once you get where you are going. Start packing one room at a time, packing smaller items first to get them out of the way. Carefully mark and tape each box so you can find everything when you unpack.

9.Clean out each room one by one, starting with the kitchen. Toss away junk and only box things that you use. Use your kitchen food storage containers for all loose things you find as you empty drawers from the kitchen, desks, or table drawers throughout the house.

10.Stack the boxes as you are finished filling, taping, and labeling them. Try to keep them stacked in the rooms that you have finished packing.

After I had finished with the packing I had to find a good Removal company. Last but not least was the End of Tenancy cleaning. It’s very important to choose a professional End of Tenancy cleaning company (for contacts go here)if you want back your deposit from your landlord.

If you do everything in the right way you will have a new job, a new home and a happy girlfriend.
