Read our guide on moving to make the whole process easier. Please share your moving experience and tips with us.
Get the whole family involved if you need to, as well as friends and work colleagues. Having an extra pair of hands minimises the stress of moving massively. As well as this, hire a furniture removals company to transport all of your furniture professionally and safely.
Be organised with your packing
This is something that will help you at the other end. Get a clear idea of which rooms you want things to be placed in, and then pack your box according to the rooms. That way the marked boxes can be placed in each room and then it’s just a case of unpacking in the right location. Tips here.
This will mean you don’t have to be constantly swapping rooms if you have and allows unpacking to be a lot simpler.
Sometimes it’s just not possible to move from one place to the next at the same time. You may have to vacate your house earlier than planned, so storage units can be a real godsend for all your heavy items and boxes. You can even use tiered storage solutions. Storage units aren’t a bad idea for a more gradual move.
Only moving the essentials and then in time getting a few boxes here and there and unpacking as time goes on.
If it’s a new area or even just a new street, try and attempt to make some friends. When you need an extra hand, you will appreciate those neighbours popping in for a coffee.
