Moving from Gloucestershire to Leeds: Make Life Easy

So, you’re finally doing it! Making the big move from Gloucestershire to Leeds. There are plenty of reasons to want to make the transition from living in southerly Gloucestershire to the incredible north. Cheaper housing, friendly locals, and a thriving shopping and cultural scene make Leeds a great place to live - and that’s even before we look at the iconic university.

Whether you are moving for work or just because you want a change of scene, it can be an exciting and stressful time. But there are ways to make things a little easier. Read on to discover how you can make the move with fewer headaches.

Get to know the area

It can be tempting to dive in with both feet when you decide it’s time to make tracks. However, you should always make sure to scope out the local area and work out where exactly you want to live. Leeds has several diverse locations, from the thriving city centre to the quiet suburbs. Depending on the reason for your move, you could have great flexibility in where you want to live. Make moving less stressful by finding somewhere you love.

Moving magic

Actually moving - and especially packing - often feels like the bane of your existence when you just want to be in your new pad. But careful packing and organising can make both moving out and moving in much easier. Follow these moving hacks to make it easier from start to finish:

  • Declutter before you move
  • Use vacuum bags for your clothes to reduce space
  • Organise your movers well ahead of time
  • Remember to cancel utilities
  • Use soft items such as towels to pack breakables
  • Pack by room and clearly label boxes
  • Keep essentials with you
  • Pack a cooler with snacks and drinks for moving day
  • Store your stuff

Sometimes you cannot move into your new place as quickly as you need to. If your moving out date does not quite correlate with your moving in date, you might be left wondering how you can possibly make it work. A few nights in a hotel won’t be the worst thing, but what to do with your possessions? Is it worth trying to delay the move? What do you do if you need to start a new job?

Luckily, short term storage with Safestore Leeds can help you to store your items safely for as long as you need. This is suitable for all your household items, large and small, so you can enjoy your new city as soon as possible. Talk about taking the pressure off!

Are you feeling excited about your potential move? With these top tips, it might just go a little more smoothly and you will be settled in no time.
