Tips for Moving House Effectively

Blog | September 29th, 2017

Moving can be an exciting time full of anticipation of the new surroundings that you will be living in at your intended destination. However, it can also be overly stressful if you do not plan it out in the right manner. We are here to offer you tips for moving house effectively to relieve your confusion and anxiety.

1. Clear Out Unwanted Items

Sort through all your clothing and other belongings and donate, sell or throw out anything that is broken, you do not want any longer or you have not used in six months unless they are seasonal items. This will reduce the amount of packing and unpacking that you will need to do to move successfully.

2. Make a List of Moving Tasks

Write a list of all the tasks you or the removal company will need to perform. This way you can check each item off as it is completed.

3. Schedule a Reputable Furniture Removal Company Early

Reserve your ideal moving date with a reputable furniture removal company early enough to guarantee it. After all, removal companies have hectic schedules that they plan months ahead of time.

4. Purchase Packing Supplies

If the removal company does not offer free packing supplies, buy them at this time. Be certain to buy new, sturdy boxes and do not use worn ones. Also, you will need bubble wrap, Styrofoam peanuts or other reliable cushioning for fragile items.

5. Start Packing and Mark Each Box

Pick any room to start packing in but leave the kitchen to last so you can still cook and prepare food as you need to for you and your family. Mark each box as you close and tape it. By doing so, you will know what room each box belongs in on the other end of the move. Follow this process even when the removal company packs for you.

6. Pack an Essentials Container

During the packing process, place the essentials that you will need for your first night in your new house in a separate container. Carry this container in the car with you, so you can find it quickly upon arrival at your new residence. Add your valuables to this container that you do not wish to trust to anyone else.

7. Plan the Route

Consult with the removal company about the best route for it and you to take to get from your present house to your new one in a timely fashion. This helps you be in sync with the removal company.
