Moving into Newcastle

What an exhilarating time! Not only are you embarking on a journey to a new home, but you’re headed to the cultural hub of the North East – moving into Newcastle upon Tyne!

Newcastle stands out as a vibrant and sought-after city, drawing individuals from across the nation and the globe for work, education, shopping, and lively social experiences with the warmest locals around. Granted, we may be a tad biased with our strong family connections to the city. But one cannot dispute the fact that Newcastle is an extraordinary place to call home.

Undoubtedly, moving, especially to a new locale, can be challenging and stressful. To alleviate some of the pressure, we’ve put together a set of tips on moving into Newcastle to ensure you and your family have an enjoyable experience settling into your new abode.

Plan Your Move

Give yourself ample time to consider every detail. While you can’t sort out everything well in advance, keeping a checklist enables you to add tasks as they come to mind. Having a clear overview of what needs to be done and when can significantly reduce the stress of the moving.

Consider tasks beyond the logistical aspects, such as organizing utilities and settling final bills – these can be time-consuming. Make a note to capture images of the meters before departure. This precaution can save you money in case of any (honest?) errors by the energy company.

Start packing non-essential items a month or so before your move, gradually moving them to their designated locations. This not only eases the workload closer to the moving date but also offers a chance to objectively assess your belongings without the pressure of impending deadlines. For instance, pack the winter wardrobe of the entire family without them noticing (assuming you’re moving in the summer). Label your boxes clearly or use colorful markers for easy identification.

While decluttering, consider parting ways with items you no longer need. Donating furniture, clothes, toys, etc., can help lighten the load and save you money in the process.

Now is an opportune time to secure a removals company if you haven’t already. Booking well in advance, including paying necessary deposits, is crucial. Get multiple quotes to ensure a favorable deal. There are numerous removal companies in Newcastle, but naturally, we’d love for you to reach out to Turton’s first 😉

The Last Mile (So to Speak)

In the final days leading up to your move, you’ll likely feel the mounting pressure as you neatly pack away your life into boxes. However, taking a few steps now will significantly ease your transition into your new Newcastle home.

Prepare a small essentials kit for your arrival. After the movers have departed, and the excitement and exhaustion set in, having crucial items like a phone charger within easy reach amidst the chaos will add a touch of comfort to your moving day.
