Moving can be a very stressful time and there’s lots to think about even before the big day. Don’t despair though, you can make moving easier for yourself by planning everything in advance. Not only will this make it more organised when you move, but it will also make unpacking easier. Follow these simple steps to make your move a breeze!
1) Plan your move
If you can, talk this stage over with someone else, they may come up with suggestions you haven’t thought about. Make your plan as soon as possible to give yourself time to collect boxes and get rid of all your unwanted things.
Talk to several removal companies to discover which services they offer.
2) Clear out unwanted items
Go through one room at a time and sort out the things you no longer want. You can make some extra cash by selling them, or give them to friends or the charity shop. You will feel a whole lot better afterwards, and you won’t be packing and moving more than you need.
3) Pack with care
Make sure that you have plenty of wrapping material such as bubble wrap, and lots of strong tape.
Try not to make your boxes to heavy, not only will your removal company thank you, but you will also prevent your boxes from breaking and damaging the items inside. Spread books into several boxes and mix with lighter items on top.
Once you have finished with a box, tape it securely with strong tape crossing the centre in both directions. Remember to mark the box with the room it’s intended to go in, this will save time when you get to the new home.
4) Dismantle large items
Some items such as fridges and freezers, can’t be dismantled of course. These need to be emptied and defrosted before you move them, and they need to be kept upright during transit.
If you make a plan and stick to these simple steps, you will have a much easier experience when it comes to moving house. With luck, everything will be in its proper place - just remember where you put the kettle!
