The thought of moving homes can be daunting with all the packing and unpacking involved but we want to help change that mindset. Whether you are buying or selling it’s an exciting time moving to a new property so try not to let the stress of moving take over.

To make your move stress-free, we’ve put together a list of helpful tips to make the journey smooth:

  • Plan early

If you know you’re going to be on the move, it’s never too early to get organised. If you have dates or an expected timeline, even better because you’ll be able to organise with the deadlines in mind. Create lists and schedules so you don’t end up packing and doing everything last minute.

  • Start with decluttering

After living in a home for a while we usually end up accumulating a lot of items, whether that’s clothes, toys, paperwork or house decorations. Going through these and sorting out what you actually use or want to keep is a good starting point. Think of it as the fewer items there are, the less packing there will be.

  • Labels and stickers

When packing items up, you don’t want to forget what was in each box when they’re at their final destination. Labelling on the outside of the box will be a huge benefit,  writing which room the box belongs to will help you on the other end when unpacking.

  • Electronics

Don’t forget about all those wires for your electronics. There’s no doubt we all have plenty of plugs and wires for different devices around our home. Neatly packing them away will prevent tangled wires and making a note of what each wire is for will help you put it together.

  • Protect items

Prepare and protect your items for moving. Having something like bubble wrap, soft fabrics or fill chips ready to grab and pack with will prevent breakages of fragile or delicate items. Think of when you go on holiday and your suitcase gets thrown around, you want the contents to be secure and everything to arrive in one piece.

  • Removal company

Consider using a professional removal company to help on the day. They are the experts in this field and by helping you get the job done, a lot of the stress will be lifted off your shoulders.

We hope you found these tips helpful, a new home comes with new experiences and opportunities so let’s make it a happy memory, not a stressful one. If you need further assistance feel free to contact us and speak to a member of our team.
