temp move

A beginner’s guide to a temporary home

Everyone knows that moving home is stressful, but moving to temporary accommodation can be even worse. Between the packing, loading, cleaning and purging, stress levels can go through the roof, but they don’t have to.

Temporary relocation for work, study, renovations or while you wait for your new home can go smoothly with the best packing and removal services. We sometimes get asked advice on how best to tackle a temporary move, so here are our top tips for temporary relocation:

Where are you moving to?

To know what you’ll need to take with you, you first need to know where you’re going and how long for. For example, a short-term relocation for work purposes can be done at a hotel, meaning you’ll only need to take clothes, personal belongings and anything of sentimental value (such as photos). However, a long-term relocation (over 6 months) is best tackled with a short-term lease. We can help you pack up all the things you’ll need to take with you and transport it to your new, temporary home.

A common reason for temporary relocation is waiting for a house sale to go through. When you’ve sold your own but your purchase hasn’t gone through yet, you may need to find a short-term lease to bridge the gap. In this case, you can take the majority of your things with you. Packing everything up and taking the furniture and personal belongings that you’ll need (don’t forget the kettle) to your temporary home can be a bit much, so putting some into storage can be a good idea.
