Tips to Make Moving House Easier

Share This:

Moving house is very stressful, and can lead to many a night of lost sleep. You have to worry about packing everything up in time for the removal men coming. You have to worry about keeping the kids occupied and not letting them get bored and restless, and even emotional. You even have to worry about unpacking everything in time to go back to work the next morning.

Start early:
My biggest tip would be to start your packing early. After all, it’s better to be finished early than it is to start late and be rushing around when the removal men come. Start at the top of the house and work your way down when each room is finished. If you take it step by step, then the packing won’t seem like too much, and you’ll be sure that everything is done. Label the boxes for each room so you know where they’re going in the new house, and you’ll make unpacking all that much easier. Make sure everything is wrapped properly, the last thing you want is to arrive at your new house and have broken goods to unpack. Wrap everything in bubble wrap and/or paper. Make sure each box is lined with plenty of newspaper to protect from unexpected shakes and bumps.

Book the right men for the job:
Booking the right men to move your most treasured possessions can be a difficult task. You’re trusting these strangers with your valuable objects. You’re trusting them to move your memories from one house to another. Cheap furniture removalists is a great company who can help to make your move all that much easier. Remember, you should always look around for the best removal company for you. Book at least 2 weeks in advance so everything is prepared. And make sure you read through the fine print of the removal insurance for your own peace of mind.

Think ahead:
Pack first night essentials in a separate box and carry it with you. Also, make sure everyone has an overnight bag with enough toiletries to last everyone the first day or two. Things such as a kettle, tea and coffee should be packed somewhere that is easy to reach. If possible, finish any laundry before you pack everything up, the last thing you want is to be packing and moving damp clothes. Not only are wet clothes heavier, but they will also cause the boxes to get soggy and more fragile to transport. Use this as an opportunity to sort through your possessions. What do you need and what can you live without? My top tip would be to leave everything packed for a few days. Whatever you don’t pull out of its box isn’t necessarily needed in your life, and if it were you would have pulled it out by now right?
If you follow these tips then moving house will surely be a hell of a lot easier. I wish you a happy move and a happy new life in your new home. And when decorating your new home, why not add some style and splendor? Make your new home a fabulous expression of yourself!

    Hey Wendy,

    Great Post Buddy!

    Yup, moving can be so stressful, especially if it’s long distance! My husband got relocated for work as I am 8 months pregnant but we did all the investigation we could to make it as stress-free as possible.

    I am not above paying a service to help transport my stuff. My two cents would be, get rid of as much as you can before you pack, and pack a travel bag with essentials to keep with you!
