My Tips to Make Moving House Easy Peasy



Moving house isn’t fun. A new house can be exciting, and once you have all your stuff in there it can be quite magical. However, you need to move first. I for one, hate moving. There’s so much to think about, and a million things to remember. Hopefully, my tips for moving house will make it easy for you too:

Make a List of Everything to Take

Start off by making a list of everything you need to take. You can do this off the top of your head, or go from room to room listing items. Make sure you’re really thorough with this part, because you’ll need to refer back to this list. I found it really helped me when I moved!

Make a List of Things to Sell/Give to Charity

Obviously, the less you decide to take with you the less you have to think about. Ask yourself if these things really matter to you or if you’d prefer to start fresh in your new home. You can then sell some items to make some extra cash, or give them to charity. Whichever you prefer.

Find a Reputable Movers

Now you need to find a reputable movers to help you transport your stuff. You should be able to find a good furniture movers in your area by looking at reviews online and asking friends/family. You could consider asking a friend or somebody with a van to come and help and save you a little money, but if you want to be extra careful, a professional is probably best.

Find a Sitter for Kids/Pets

If you have kids and pets to think about, then it’s probably best you find a sitter to get them out of the way for the day. They can get in the way and make things so much harder, as much as we love them. If you can get a sitter for the day you’ll have much less to think about.

Double Check Every Room

Double check every room before you leave, even if you’re sure you’ve got everything. You can never be too careful!

Pack Everything Relevant Together

Pack all of the relevant items together, so you know exactly where everything is. This will make it much easier if you realise you need anything, and of course when it’s time for you to unpack.

Label Boxes Clearly

Label your boxes as clearly as possible so you know where everything is at a glance. All you’re doing is making it easier on yourself when it comes to unpack. If you don’t label boxes clearly, you’ll only hate yourself when you’re finished with the removal van.

Make Emergency Boxes for Each Member

It might help to make an emergency box for each family member. You don’t want to rush the unpacking process, but each family member will need a few things to make their lives easier. For instance, put the things you use every day in the box. Rather than packing each toothbrush in the ‘bathroom’ box, pack it in an emergency box. You can also pack makeup wipes, chargers, and anything else you might need in a hurry.
