Are you thinking about moving house in the near future? There are some urban myths about moving that maybe you have heard. Forget about them because it’s likely that they’re all incorrect, and could end up causing you a lot of headaches. Instead, hire the professional team at Allied Pickfords to take care of the move for you, and settle into your new home with a clear head.
What are three urban myths about moving?
1) YOU SHOULD MOVE ON A FRIDAY
Many people believe moving on a Friday would be great. They think there would be the benefit to unpack all of their belongings and settle down everything at the new property in weekend. Everyone wants to move on a Friday, so you might be better off choosing another day in the week.
Also you don’t have to hurry up to unpacking everything in a single weekend – take your time and make a plan for few weeks. Get the important belongings organized, and then move forward when you have a clear space in your schedule!
2) LEAVE YOUR OLD BROOM BEHIND
This is a classic urban myth, meant to bring good luck and help you to start fresh in your new home. However, unless you’re superstitious, you don’t need to leave it behind. Your old broom might do a perfect job. There’s no point leaving it behind or throwing it out!
Take it with you, and it’s one less thing you have to think about buying when you arrive at your new property. Don’t make moving harder for yourself than it needs to be just because you heard this urban myth years ago.
3) YOU CAN DO IT ALL YOURSELF
Many people believe they can easily move their home without any assistance. They’re only deceiving themselves. Moving house requires a good organization only that way the move will be smoothly . No matter how many times you’ve change your location before, it’s never going to be ‘easy’.
