Tips For Moving Wіth Children

Make no mistake, moving іntо а nеw home whether an apartment or house саn bе tough. There’s а nеw area tо gеt usеd tо (оr а whоlе nеw city or town entirely!), nеw roads, bus routes tо learn, figuring оut whеrе аll оf thе dіffеrеnt shops аrе … It’s hard еnоugh tо dо whеn you’re bу уоursеlf, but whеn уоu bring kids іntо thе reckoning, moving саn bесоmе аn еvеn greater challenge.

Changing schools, leaving bеhіnd friends аnd classmates, gіvіng uр familiar habits, аnd living іn а brand nеw setting саn bе vеrу difficult fоr mаnу children. Веfоrе moving wіth kids іntо уоur nеw home, wе’vе рut tоgеthеr а quick moving checklist tо help mаkе уоur move іntо а nеw home аs smooth аs роssіblе bоth fоr уоu аnd уоur children.

Before the Move:

Tell уоur children аbоut thе imminent house move аs sооn аs уоu саn. Тhе mоrе time thеу hаvе tо gеt usеd tо thе idea оf moving home, thе easier іt will bе fоr thеm whеn thе big day finally arrives.

Involve уоur children аs early аs роssіblе, Іf уоu gіvе thеm specific tasks tо dо early оn іn thе moving process. Yоu саn help уоur children hаvе а sense оf control оvеr thіs роtеntіаllу daunting situation. Аs аn example, уоu соuld lеt thеm participate іn thе house hunting process by gеttіng thеіr opinions оn thе pros аnd cons оf thе dіffеrеnt houses and areas thаt уоu lооk at.

Take а tour оf thе nеw area with the kids and point out places that will be of interest to them . Веfоrе уоu move іn, tаkе уоur children tо уоur nеw house аnd explore thе nеw area tоgеthеr. Lеt thеm sее thе local parks, schools, shops, еtс., аs knowing аbоut thеsе places ahead оf time will help ease thеіr worries оf thе unknown (аnd роssіblу еvеn mаkе thеm lооk forward tо visiting thеsе cool nеw places оn а regular basis оnсе you’re аll moved in!).

Put tоgеthеr а friends list. Whеn moving wіth young children, leaving bеhіnd thеіr оld school аnd friends іs реrhарs thе hardest раrt оf thе entire process. То help ease thе transition, help уоur children prepare а list оf phone numbers even email addresses оf аll оf thеіr close friends аnd relatives. In this age it is easier to keep in touch with instant digital communication. Knowing thаt thеу саn stay іn touch wіth thе іmроrtаnt people іn thеіr lives. Evеn whеn they’re іn thе nеw home іs а vеrу іmроrtаnt раrt оf а successful move.

Moving home with kids
Children need reassurance when moving to a new home

During thе Move:

Involve the kids іn thе packing let them pack their belongings. Packing саn bе а tedious process аt thе best оf times so let them help. То mаkе thе whоlе exercise а lіttlе mоrе fun fоr еvеrуbоdу, уоu саn hаvе уоur kids decorate thе boxes соntаіnіng thеіr things labelling the boxes with their rooms. Аs аn аddеd bonus, dоіng sо will аlsо mаkе finding thеіr things easier оnсе you’re аt thе nеw home!

Don’t pack uр еvеrуthіng, It’s іmроrtаnt thаt уоu dоn’t pack аwау the kids favourite things bеfоrе thе big move. Important items to them suсh аs game stations, stuffed animals, books, еtс., shоuld bе рlасеd іn а separate box thаt саn bе tаkеn іn thе car wіth thе kids. Тhіs wау, thе kids gеt peace оf mind knowing thаt thеіr favourite things wоn’t gеt lost оr left behind.

Stay positive. Whеn moving wіth children, it’s vеrу іmроrtаnt tо stay upbeat аnd calm during this stressful time. Yоur оwn mood will greatly impact thе mood оf the children – іf уоu hate moving, chances аrе thеу will, too.

After thе Move:

Don’t spend аll оf уоur time unpacking. Yеs, уоu’ll nееd tо gеt аll оf thоsе essential items оut оf thе boxes аs sооn аs роssіblе, but trу tо spread thе unpacking process оut оvеr а fеw days, іf роssіblе. Fоr mоst kids, unpacking іs boring – thеу will wаnt tо explore the new home! It’s іmроrtаnt tо рut dоwn thе boxes аnd tаkе thе time tо rеаllу explore уоur nеw neighborhood аnd spend time wіth уоur family. Gо fоr а walk, check оut thе nearby shops аnd restaurants, relax аt thе park … hоw уоu spend thіs time іs uр tо you.

Get your children involved in the process. Gіvе уоur children а chance tо input ideas whеn you’re settling іn tо уоur nеw home. Openly аsk fоr thеіr ideas, еsресіаllу whеn choosing items fоr thеіr rooms оr deciding оn thе layout оf thе new home. Іf thеу feel thаt thеу’vе helped “create” thе nеw home, уоur kids will bе mоrе inclined tо thіnk оf іt аs thеіr nеw hоmе іnstеаd оf а scary, unknown place.

Try tо maintain daily habits. Whіlе children аrе adjusting tо nеw homes, neighborhoods, аnd schools, parents саn provide sоmе comfort bу keeping sоmе things thе sаmе. Fоr instance, hаvіng thе sаmе morning аnd bedtime routines, meal times, еtс. mіght bе extremely comforting, еsресіаllу fоr younger children.

Above аll, listen. Regularly аsk hоw things аrе going fоr thеm аt thе nеw home. Ѕоmе kids hаvе а hard time opening up, spending sоmе relaxed time tоgеthеr mау help bring uр whаtеvеr іs оn thеіr minds.

What are the fees cost of moving home

Moving home can be a very expensive and stressful process keeping on top of the costs one of the main areas of stress. It’s easy to let this part of the of the moving process raise further than it has to paying solicitors fees and estate agents are unavoidable but still negotiable! So always ask for discount and whether that is their best price, do not be afraid to ask this is your hard earned money.

One area you can save money is by hiring a man and van service to do the actual moving The cost of moving homeof your belongings rather than a full blown removal company who will charge a lot more than a smaller man and van company. Most man and van companies offer more than one man so will be able to provide a team of moving porters if needed. When looking for a man and van try and get one from recommendation and look for reviews online book with an established company who will have years of experience moving furniture and not with one that is “doing it between jobs” on moving day you will need experienced moving men handling your furniture and possessions.

You will find the only people who actual do any physical hard work for the money you pay during your relocation is the removal men.

•             Solicitors fees: when a property is bought or sold, the legal ownership sometimes called the title deeds must transfer from the seller to the buyer the process is known as conveyance.

•             Valuation fees: this is carried out on behalf of the mortgage lender even however you may have to pay for it. Most lenders charge valuation fees and the cost depends on the value of your property.

•             Searches: this is when your conveyance requests information from the local authority to confirm details about any planned developments that may affect the property. Searches are carried out to determine any additional information about a property that often isn’t evident initially. The fees for searches should come within the cost of the conveyance.

•             Stamp duty: If you’re buying a home, you are going to be taxed. And that tax is known as stamp duty after the official stamps that used to certify payment. At the time of writing if you buy property for more than £125,000, you pay Stamp Duty Land Tax of between 1% and 7% on the whole purchase price.

•             Removals: The physical process of moving all your belongings form your old place to your new home. Some people go the DIY route of hiring a van themselves other let professional removal companies or man and van services take the burden. These are the only people who get paid for physical labour.

•             Insurance: You now own a new home, so it is crucial to protect it, and also all your belongings. Household insurance is divided into two parts, buildings insurance and contents insurance. They can be purchased individually; some insurance companies offer a single policy cover for both which can save you money. Buildings Insurance provides cover for the property itself, such as kitchen and bathroom fittings and running water. It also provides cover for events such as fire, flood or even subsidence. Contents Insurance insures all your possessions inside your home. It’s up to you just what your insurance policy covers and the insurance quote will depends on how much it covers.

There is a lot of resources on the internet comparing lots of the associated costs with moving home most of these compare sites are getting a commission from you when you use their sites so they are useful for finding the supplier then go direct and get the discount yourself

Advice when Moving home in Manchester

When you get a new house, you go through a whole tumult of emotions; excitement (new house is a new adventure), elation (the new house is great), pride (the feeling that comes with knowing you can afford a new house), nervousness (most people don’t like to admit it but there is a little fear and nervousness of what our new neighbourhood will be like and how your life there will play out) and well, a lot of annoyance when you consider that you have to pack up all your stuff and move to a new house. Moving can be very difficult and stressful and if you LIKE the process of moving; you’re the only one in the world. In this article, we will be offering you tips to make the process of moving less difficult and cumbersome. removals manchester

The first thing to consider of course is the preparation you put in for “moving day” do it right and moving day will just be stressful, not frustrating and never ending. There are a lot of things to do when preparing to move, you have to set up a system for forwarding your mails, change over your utilities, find packing supplies etcetera. Moving day, and the few days after ward when you’ll be unpacking, is really the easy part of a move. Good preparation is key to ensuring that everything goes smoothly. It might take your time and seem more detailed than a move should warrant, but a good preparation plan will make your move a lot simpler and less stressful.

Before making the move, you should find out all the utilities that you are responsible for and make the necessary transfers. The earlier you call for this service the better because some utility companies will not make it out to you if you call them on short notice. Another option available to you is to fill out your change of address form on line. If you do fill out a change of address form on line, you need to ensure that the credit card you use as your billing address contains your current address, because this is how the postal service will verify your request.

Moving involves using quite a number of packing supplies, boxes, tapes, and the likes. It will be relatively easy to buy these things but it will cost you a surprising amount of money, not a huge amount, just a surprising figure. You can limit this additional cost by figuring out places where you can get boxes for free. The best places to go for free boxes, contrary to popular opinion is not actually retail stores but furniture stores. Sure, your local retailer may be able to provide you with some used boxes for free but a furniture store will offer you a larger range of sizes and varieties of boxes. Make sure you call the furniture store up at least a week before you’re ready to start moving. The furniture company probably does not dispose of boxes on a daily basis. Another way to get free boxes is getting the boxes from your friends if they are moving before you. Depending on where you work, you could also get boxes from the office or ask a friend to help you get boxes from their office. Don’t be shy to ask for boxes, everyone moves eventually so most people will be nice about it.small load-car

Take time out to properly measure your new place to sure that everything will fit in where it is supposed to, do not assume. The next step is to get a moving company. You might be tempted to save cost by going the DIY route, but let’s face it, these guys are pro’s for a reason. They handle all you’re moving with a minimum of stress on your sides and are really not that expensive. When selecting the removal company, ensure you do your due diligence and select a company with a stellar reputation.

Packing is often the least favourite part of moving, it is time consuming and remembering that you’ll have to unpack in a few days? It just depresses me. It is necessary though, so while packing ensure you sort out what belongings are supposed to be where so you don’t end up in chaos. It pays to be organised so categorize everything. It’s okay to be a little neurotic about ensuring that everything is in its place, better a little neurosis now than chugging aspirins to fight a stress induced headache later.

If you took the time to prepare for your move, then moving in and unpacking shouldn’t be difficult. Of course you still have unpacking all those boxes to look forward to but hey, you’re all moved into your new house. The processes around packing, moving and unpacking can be daunting so feel free to have friends help you out. Even superman had help moving to Earth!

man and van business starting a small removal company
Start your removal company

service you will have to make some choices of what road you will need to go down regarding your tax status here are some options. Sole trader, partnership or limited company? You have decided that you want to run a removals business – now decide how you will achieve this – starting a small removal company

  • Hundreds of thousands of people across the UK become sole traders every year, many starting in the transport business with removal companies and smaller man and van concerns, making this the most popular way to start a company. The reason? It’s easy and simple. As soon as you’ve registered with HMRC for Tax and National Insurance (which you should do soon after launch) you have a company you can call your own. The owners of limited companies may have to register their business a Companies House, but not a sole trader.
  • Sole traders can and do employ staff, but most often sole traders are people who are striking out on their own. When setting up in the removals business you may need help with labour unless you are targeting the “bags and boxes” market lots of young professionals are moving without the larger furniture items and usually rent flats and houses
  • The business you create as a sole trader will be all yours. All the profits go to you but then so too do all the losses. So get stuck in get your advertising out there and start earning. This is important as you will be personally responsible for any debts that the business may incur. Often people form limited companies to shield their personal assets from any debts the business may make.
  • There are no legal stipulations for a sole trader to draw up accounts (although a basic record of revenue and costs should be a minimum for any company). Sole traders simply have to complete a Self Assessment tax return every year something they can do on their own without the help of an accountant. This can be done online at HMRC.
  • A key advantage for sole traders over other types of business is that normally they can deduct losses made in the first year from future profits or other income they may have. Obviously you won’t be setting out to make losses but, if it’s a possibility, this could be useful.
  • Look at your market and target your customers whether it is Manchester removals to London or even further afield do not restrict yourself the world is yours to exploit

Partnership

The removals sector is very competitive. It’s important to offer a good quality service so that your reputation allows you to charge realistic and competitive rates.

  • If you like the simplicity of the sole trader set-up but you’d rather other people were involved in your business (two heads are often better than one, after all) then it’s worth considering a partnership.
  • Setting up a partnership is easy (just as it is to set-up a sole trader business) in that you’re a fully compliant trading entity the moment you register for tax with HMRC.
  • There is no legal requirement to draw up accounts – a Self Assessment tax return is all that is needed – and, if you’re likely to make losses in the first year or so, you can normally deduct them from future profits like a sole trader.
  • As the joint owner of the company you will split any profits with your partner. If there are any losses, you’ll be personally responsible for your share of the debt as well as those of your partners. But, you can get around this by forming a Limited Liability Partnership, which although being more complicated to set up than an ordinary partnership, does reduce responsibility for business debts in the same way as a limited company.
  • Partners often enjoy having someone else around who can help shoulder the workload. But, given that starting a business with someone can be more intense than marrying them, it’s sensible to get a solicitor to draw up a written partnership agreement before you start out. The agreement should deal with how the profits and work are split and what happens if one of you decides to up sticks and leave.

Limited company

  • Sole traders or partnerships might be easy to set up, but the fact that they don’t offer protection from a company’s debts makes a limited company a more attractive option for many. As a director of a limited company, and as long as you operate legally, your personal assets won’t be at risk if your company can’t pay back a debt.
  • Business people often choose to set up a limited company because they believe that to do so lends credibility to their endeavours.
  • Setting up a limited company is not difficult and is done by filling out a number of forms, all of which are available from the Companies House site. If you’d rather not do this yourself, there are companies that will set it up for you for a small fee.
  • The accounts for a limited company must follow a form set out in law. They will need to be drawn up by an accountant then submitted to Companies House. The fact that you must use an accountant has an upside – they should be able to advise on how you can legitimately extract maximum value from your firm (by, for example, supplementing your wages with dividends).
  •  It is usual in the removals sector to request prepayment from customers, so most of your income is likely to be cash sales so make sure you record all transactions with receipts.

Storage in Manchester for business home and students

Self Storage is an easy, cost effective and secure way of storing anything from a removal box to the full contents of a house.
You transport your possessions either by yourself or use a Removal company and put them in a locked storage room or larger unit of a particular size to contain your belongings, try to gauge the space you need so you do not book a space that is too big which will cost you more money. Generally you will be the only person to have access to the unit, bring your own padlock they can be over priced when buying of the storage company. If you are moving to another city it may be an idea to leave a key with the storage company so if you do book a removal company to collect your belongings you don’t have to be there in person, sometimes this can save you time and money if say you have moved from Manchester to London removals and your belongings are in Manchester storage.
Nearly all cities and towns have storage companies, so it is a good idea to get two or three quotes usually based on price per cubic meter, if you need to make regular trips to access your belongings it maybe a good idea to book a storage company that is close by always visit the storage facility before booking your unit to get a idea that it is run correctly reputable storage companies are usually members of storage trade associations like the SSA. When you decide on the company you wish to use you will have to sign an agreement which you will be required to read and sign before you can access your storage room. Some storage companies offer 24 hour access while others operate on a 9 to 5 basis with limited hours on weekends so check the opening hours, If you have a big consignment to store always allow for unloading and do not turn up 10 minutes before closing time.
Most Self Storage companies will have units over a number of floors but have goods lifts which are big enough to take most household items, however also be geared up to have to carry things upstairs. Barrows and sack trucks will be available to help with getting belongings from the van to your storage room make use of these, let them do the work not your back!.
Goods not allowed to be stored are any flammable goods, explosives, perishable foodstuffs or goods or materials of a dangerous or illegal nature check with the storage company about their terms and conditions but most will not allow these goods.
Clean your garden equipment before storing it, Bikes, Metal tools and Tools can be prevented from rusting if they are to be in storage for a long time by wiping with an oily rag before storing. Make sure that all appliances are clean and dry and empty. Make sure that freezers and fridges are fully defrosted.
Place plastic sheeting on the floor of your storage room. If you have a large storage room leave a walkway so you can gain access to items if you need to. Place heavy or bulky items in the room first to provide a good stacking base Plan your storage space put those items that you need to get to most often near the front, Pack it to the ceiling by placing heavier items like chests of drawers and wardrobes on the floor and lighter fragile items on top. Fill all the spaces gaps with softer lighter items like bags bedding and cushions close the door and don’t forget to lock and log room number.
