When you are a work at home mom, it can be hard enough to divide your time efficiently between your job and your family. However, if you throw the chaos of moving house in there as well, especially while you have to keep on working while you pack up the place, things can get super tough. That is why I have written the post below, to help you with this task and show that it can be done. Keep reading to find out more.
Pack your office last.
The thing about moving house guides is that they are all focused on getting everything packed up as quickly as possible. Of course, this is fine if you work outside of the home, but when your business is located on your property, you can’t afford to be packing up necessary equipment and files weeks before the move.
With that in mind, it is a good idea to get focused on sorting the rest of your home, and getting as much of that done as you possibly can. Then, this will free your time up just before moving day so that you can pack up your office as quickly as possible.
Also, don’t forget to ensure that your office items go on the moving truck last, as then they can be put in your new home first. Something that means you will lose as little work time as possible.
Secure your mover ahead of time.
Next, when you are working at home and relocating it’s vital that you get your removal firm confirmed for your moving date ahead of time.
In fact, to be able to pick the best moving company that will match your needs, it’s a good idea to start researching removal services up to three months before you need them. After all, you will want to take the stress of lugging all those heavy boxes from your shoulders, especially if you are going to have any energy left need to get straight to unpacking your office when you reach the new property.
Deep clean your house in stages.
Also, it is helpful to remember to get a head start on all the jobs that will need to be complete in your old property before you can move out. In particular, most people like to clean their home to ensure they leave them in a decent state for the next residents.
However, if your time is already taken up with working and then packing your office right up until the move you will only be adding more pressure yourself if you don’t get it done beforehand.
To that end, the best idea is to deep clean your home in stages, either room by room or floor by floor. Then when it comes to your actual moving day, you will have another significant task ticked off your list, something that will allow you to focus on getting your desk, and PC set up, your files away and your home office in working order, as quickly as possible.
