So, the current quandary is what to do with our belongings. I’m writing this because I think this is part of the journey that many people find themselves in and I said we would write about the moving process.
The situation is that we may find we have completed on our house before we have anywhere (we don’t have a date yet though). We have a few options:
- sell everything (which I think is a false economy)
- get rid of everything non essential and store the rest with the removals firm until we actually move.
- Store everything with a local storage place and then use a removals firm.
- Narrow our belongings down to things which fit into a van, store them and then take them over ourselves (wherever somewhere is).
Wherever we move, it is probably going to involve a ferry journey.
I am thinking at the moment that number 2 is the best option. Don’t get me wrong, this “quandary” doesn’t worry me in the slightest. Maybe it should, but it doesn’t. Again, I quite like change and a bit of upheaval. I think that’s maybe just how I’m made. But I think we need to think about it and Chris definitely thinks we do, so we are. (we compliment each other well).
I’m presuming it is difficult to get concrete quotes until you know details like dates, so I’ll wait until we have the completion date and then start ringing. We have never done this before so we have no idea about costs! We got quoted the latter half of the two grand mark to move to Shetland, which I didn’t think was bad considering the overnight ferry journey. So we will see.
