Moving for the First Time

It must be scary moving into your own home in Ashfield for the first time, your chance to be independent and utterly reliant on yourself. Sure your family and friends will be around to help you, but they won’t stay with you and that’s where the whole adventure is going to be! Platinum Removals wants to help you make the transition into your new home as easily and stress-free as possible, so we’ve come up with some advice that can help you make the move!

Put some money aside
One of the first things that you need to do when you move out on your own, is start to save money! There are plenty of things that could require that little bit of funds if you think about it – for your regular rent payments if you don’t want to rely on your parents, or for repairs of the washing machine or the stove that unexpectedly kaput, perhaps even for a new set of pots and pans because, hey!; why not? A bit of smart squirreling of a bit of your pay could save you the embarrassment of asking around for some monetary help!

Accept hand-me-downs
Better yet if you have relatives who know you are moving and are eager to gift you with items. Of course you don’t have to accept the moth-bitten rugs and clashing pillow cases, but items that might fit in with your sense of style and are in good usable condition can really help you save some money in those first crucial months when you are getting used to the finances of living alone. Remember, you can take your time to replace items slowly as you get more comfortable with your financial arrangements.

Make the Most of the Blank Canvas
Since you are moving into your own house, really make it your own! Whether you are renting or purchasing your own place, small personal touches can help you to settle in quicker! If your landlord is willing or you are able to make decisions with regards to fixtures in the house, invest in some good storage systems and cupboards so that you can get organized easily and efficiently for a long time to come!

Enjoy the solitude!
The best thing about having your own place, is that you are well and truly alone to enjoy whatever you like! Whether you have room-mates or house-mates or you have the whole apartment to yourself, it is a wonderful time to get to know yourself and indulge yourself whenever and where you like! Wake up late, enjoy breakfast in bed, walk around naked! The sky is the limit and why not! If there ever was a time to do what you like, now is it!

We hope that things go smoothly for you as you move into a place that you can call your own. The first step to doing so will be pivotal in setting the scene for you so take some time to find a good moving and removals company to help you out.
