The process of moving home can be stressful. And if you have a disability or a medical condition, then you might have your own unique considerations to worry about. Below, we explore the process you should follow if you’re moving house with a disability.
Contact a removal company
For a start, you should get in touch with a reputable removal company to help you transfer your possessions across. Ensure that you make them aware of your disability so that they can help as much as possible and make special provisions to help out. This can make your move much easier. You’ll be able to move your possessions from your current house to your new house with a minimum of fuss and peace of mind that you only need to worry about getting yourself across.
On top of this, it’s important to plan carefully before moving house. This begins with arranging any adjustments you need to be implemented in your new home. For instance, if you need a ramp or handrails in your new home, you should sort these out before the move. If you’re unsure about these adjustments, it’s best to visit the new home in advance to check it and assess the situation. Furthermore, it’s useful to pack some essentials before you move. Ensure that you have any medication or comfort items close to hand to help you settle in on arrival.
Ask for help from family and friends
Finally, you shouldn’t be afraid to ask for help from family and friends. A move can be overwhelming for anyone and it’s normal for loved ones to help out. This is particularly useful when you’re arranging your furniture and possessions inside your new home. But it can also be helpful for transporting yourself to the new home, or if you need help settling in. Again, this requires plenty of planning in advance, so ensure that you coordinate between your moving company, the seller, and your loved ones to make sure that everyone’s on the same page with the move, allowing the transfer to run as smoothly as possible.
Moving house is exciting, but it also carries plenty of challenges. However, by following the advice above, you should be all set to make a smooth transition as you settle into your new home.
