2 Week Checklist

martian 20/12/2018

At 2 weeks out we are all starting to feel the pressure somewhat when it comes to moving from one place to the next. Most of the nitty gritty has been more or less finalised. At 2 weeks we are finally in the home stretch with a new abode on the horizon. So what are the next steps?

 

Step 1: Start packing non-essential items. What the heck is a non-essential item? Well, we are talking about things like books, out of season clothing, your Elvis collection, ornaments decor pieces. Essentially anything you don’t need to survive for the next two weeks.

 

Step 2: Your Pantry… start using up any frozen foods or things that are in any way perishable to avoid wastage. It also helps to lighten the load on moving day.

 

Step 3: Remember to let your milkman and newsagent know when you want their deliveries to stop. It’s a good idea to run through all your subscriptions, spring clean those as well for things you no longer want or need.

 

Step 4: Get your post redirected. The Royal Mail is particularly helpful, in fact you have three options when applying to get your mail redirected. You can use their website (probably the least trouble), you may apply at your local post office or you may apply mail (rather ironically). There is a fee due for this service. You can have your mail redirected to any UK or overseas address for 3, 6 and 12 months. The Royal Mail send you a reminder when it is about to expire.

 

Step 5: Send out change of address cards to family or friends. Now is a great time to get the kids (if you have them) involved in making cards for your nearest and dearest. Sending out a mass email is also quite efficient. This is the perfect opportunity to hint at a future house warming to introduce family and friends to your new home. Unless of course they are helping you with the move itself.

 

Step 6: Finalise your arrangements with your removal company if you are using one.

 

Step 7: It is important to notify your bank of any changes to your address, direct debits and standing orders.

 

Step 8: Begin the deep cleaning process. Organise cleaning supplies, effect repairs if required. It is a simple thing to organise either professional cleaners or even rent the appliances required to clean carpets and steam clean bathrooms.

 

Follow these steps to ensure a less-stressful moving home experience.

Looking For a Mobile Phone Repair Service Provider? Consider the Following Factors

martian 10/05/2018

No matter how you try to look after your phone, sometimes you can’t protect it from getting damaged. Whether your phone accidentally slipped off and got its screen broken or whether it fell on a basin of water, you will need a qualified and experienced technician to repair or fix it. While there are hundreds or even thousands of technicians who claim to be good in this job, it is actually a handful of them who can perfectly handle your luxurious phone. What should you consider when looking for a cell phone repair service provider? We give you some tips below:

  • Reviews– The first thing that you should look for when looking for a phone technician is their reviews and history working with other clients. Remember that, history always repeats itself, and if your particular technician has a bad reputation, then you should not expect excellent results. If it is a phone repair company, they should be able to give you access to their website where you can actually see the reviews left by the other clients. If you find a lot of negative criticism, then that should raise a red flag, and you should reconsider your decision of working with that company or technician.
  • Do they offer home services?- If you are a busy person and you don’t have enough time to visit the nearby repair shops, then you should consider looking for a company that offers home repair services. However, be careful to ensure that you choose a reputable firm with skilled and talented employees.
  • Experience- You don’t want to hire someone who will actually make your phone worse, right? Then it is very critical that you look for someone who is confident about what they are doing and who have a good history of successful operations. Are they certified? Are they experienced? These are some of the questions that you should ask yourself. Make sure that you entrust your phone to a trained technician and who can confidently produce evidence of his qualifications.
  • Authentic and original spare parts– The last thing that you want is someone to use fake or sub-standard spare parts on your expensive iPhone or Samsung phone! Can the technician be able to quickly get access to the unique spare parts that your phone require? Yes, your phone repair job may be delayed for days or even weeks just because your technician cannot quickly get the necessary spare parts. To avoid this challenge, it is advisable that you go for a well-connected technician who knows which accessory dealer to approach for a particular spare part.
  • Speed and reliability– Please remember that our phones are indispensable and we want them fixed as fast as possible. It is therefore vital that you choose a phone repair shop near you that has an excellent reputation for speed and reliability.

When looking for a phone repair services, it is also essential that you consider your budget as some repair companies are likely to charge you way more than what you can afford. However, don’t use cost as the only way to gauge a technician. They say cheap is expensive, right?
