Moving house can be super exciting, or it can be super stressful. The vibe of your move doesn’t just depend on what type of person you are or whether you had a strong enough coffee on the moving day, but it also depends on a couple of other things too. So, how do we avoid a stressful move and achieve a stress-free move instead? You’ve come to the right place. These are our top five tips for moving house.
1) Enlist a pro
Talking to an expert moving company is the first thing you should do when planning a move. This will allow you to work out how much stuff you have, what kind of transport you need, how many removalists and how long it’ll take. Movers do this job every day, so they’re a lot more experienced than you and have got the process down pat.
This tip is satisfying beyond belief: purge your stuff. Get rid of all that crap you don’t need – all the stuff that would only weigh you down if you were to move it with you. We’re sure that you’ll find some stuff in your storage room which you’ll be glad to sell on the internet for some extra cash.
3) List your essentials
Some things you can’t go a day without. Toiletries, technology and jewellery are all things that you’ll most likely take on board with you. Write a list of all these things to make sure you grab them all before the removalists set to work.
4) Efficiency is key
There are so many little ways that you can be as efficient as possible, so just think about the task before you act on it. When packing away your clothes, put them in suitcases and other receptacles rather than garbage bags. You can also use pots to carry smaller stuff like utensils. The aim is to minimise the amount of stuff you have to carry.
5) Don’t be late to book
Our last tip is to book your moving team well ahead of time. You don’t want to get to three days before moving day and realise you forgot to book in with the moving team. Booking ahead will ensure that you get your preferred movers: not the guys who rock up an hour late have no clue what they’re doing. It’ll also mean you won’t have to pay hefty fees for ‘emergency moving’.
