Whether this is your first move, or your last move, it’s always a daunting process moving home.
Making sure everything is organised will make your life much easier when you get to the other end. So, our advice to you is start slowly and start early! The last thing you want is to be throwing things in boxes while the removal men are waiting outside!
To try and relieve some of the pressure from you, we’ve detailed some helpful hints and tips that we’ve picked up over the years in order to make your house move as simple as possible!
Tip 1: Pack the non-essentials first
Start off with labelling a box per room and slowly gather all of the non-essential items from each room. These are usually items such as vases, ornaments, or photo frames. Yes, the house may look a bit bare for a few weeks, but no one can blame you!
As the move approaches, you can pack more frequently used things – saving your absolute essentials for last.
Label boxes with precision!
Now I know this may seem like a time-consuming task that you don’t think is necessary, but TRUST US, this is an essential part of the moving process. A good idea is to label each box with their category and their contents, for example- Kitchen: dinner plates, bowls, mugs and side plates. The more detail you put into the labelling, the easier it will be to find your all-important items when you reach your end destination.
Invest in storage space.
Even if you’re leaving your current property and moving into your new one in the same day, you might want to think about investing in some storage space. This can be especially useful if you’re doing some renovation to your new property and want to make sure that you’re prized possessions stay well looked after. That’s where we can help!
