Make Sure The Heating Is On

There is nothing worse than moving into a freezing house. Crank up the heating a few hours before your move so you can unpack without having cold and numb fingers.

Put Up Your Curtains

This may seem obvious to some, but putting up the curtains is a great way to keep the heat in your house and block out unwanted draughts as well as provide privacy.

Make Sure Your Lights Are Working

Remember in the autumn months darker evenings come a lot earlier. Unpacking can be a long process and there is nothing worse than doing this in the dark.

Pack Wisely

Pack your things strategically, put warm blankets and duvets on the top of boxes so they can be easily sourced once you have moved in. Make sure you know where the kettle is so you can cuddle up on the sofa with a hot cup of tea and a blanket.

Make Sure Your Gutters And Drainage Systems Are Working

With the autumn comes the falling of leaves, this sometimes results in your gutters getting clogged. It’s important to sort this out before winter gets to you, otherwise, they could freeze over.
