Top 4 Tricks For Moving Home Quickly

Moving home can be both a painful and exciting experience for your family. It’s exciting because you’re moving on to something new and getting a fresh start in a new family home. It’s painful because moving can be stressful and take a lot of time.

I thought it would be nice to make life a lot easier for any families planning on moving by showing you some of my top tricks for a fast move. Follow the advice, and you’ll be in your new house in no time at all!

Label Your Boxes

One very simple trick is to label your moving boxes once you’ve packed them. You can label them by writing what’s inside each box and how important the box is. This way, when everything gets packed and moved, you can make it, so the most important boxes are taken out first and opened before others. This ensures you don’t get to your new home and spend ages looking for the most important boxes, they’re already labelled and ready for you to open.

Get Wardrobe Boxes

Packing your clothes is probably one of the most annoying and time-consuming parts of moving house. You need to take everything off its hanger and then fold it all up and pack it into suitcases or boxes. Well, you can save so much time by getting a wardrobe packing box. Essentially, this is a tall box with a pole at the top that allows you to hang things on. So, you can take things from your wardrobe, and hang them in the box without needing to do much at all. It will cut down your time quite dramatically and keep you more organised too.

Hire A Removal Company

You may be tempted to save money and try to remove all the boxes and stuff by yourself. However, this really isn’t worth it as you’ll end up dragging out your move and making it more stressful for yourself. Instead, engage a reliable removal company, and they will handle a lot of the hard work for you. With them on your team, you can get away with transporting all of your stuff in one journey, greatly decreasing the time spent moving.

Start As Early As Possible

Perhaps the biggest piece of advice I can give is to start packing and planning your move as early as possible. Start packing as soon as you even think about moving home, before you’ve even bid on any properties. Naturally, you can’t pack everything this early, but you can still pack all the non-essentials and have them ready. Then, as soon as you’ve had a bid accepted, start packing the more important things. This way, if things go quickly and you’re cleared to move earlier than expected, you’re already in a position to do so. There’s no waiting around, no wild rush doing things, you’ve got it all sorted, and you packed early, so it’s just a case of moving all the stuff.

With these four tricks, you will be moving home in no time at all. They take the stress out of moving and ensure your family has a seamless transition into your new house.
