New Year, New Home?

With the year slowly disappearing around the corner, we can all agree that 2021 is going to feel like a brand new start. Whether it’s starting a new career or moving away from a bustling city, many people are starting fresh in the new year.

If you are thinking of moving to a new home in 2021, here are some ideas to help make your move as easy as possible.

Make a checklist on your budget

Moving home can be expensive, so it’s important to keep track of your budget and how you spend it. There are many things to consider when it comes to costs:

  • Deposit
  • Stamp Duty
  • Property Valuation Fee
  • Solicitor Fees
  • Insurance

If you are not sure about how much you need to save, we have put together a useful checklist to help explain what is the real cost of moving house.

Choose Your Dream Location Wisely

The last thing that you want to experience is moving into a new location that you don’t like. Make sure that you do your research before your “dream move” to avoid this happening to you. There are many things to consider when looking for a new place to live:

  • Ofstead reports
  • Crime Statistics
  • Noise Levels
  • Community
  • Shopping Centres
  • Entertainment
  • Transport Links


You may want to consider if you need any storage solutions to help with your move. It can be a great way to sell your property and become even more attractive buyers with no chain to help you buy the house of your dreams.

If you have a lot of items to store and don’t have the resources to move them, this can build up a lot of stress when it comes to moving day. Calling up friends and family can be useful, but you can’t guarantee your more fragile items from being safe.

For qualifying customers, Space4U offers a useful free pick-up service when you store with us. Whether you need a man with a van in Bracknell or looking for removals in Windsor, this professional end-to-end service helps you to make your move as seamless as possible.
