Our top 5 Tips for a Stress-Free House Move

October 12, 2017 | By | One Comment

Moving home can be an incredibly stressful experience whether you are moving across the country or just across the road. Our expert team have compiled their top 5 tips to ensure your move is as smooth as possible.

Book your removal company

As soon as you know your moving date, book your removal company. Take into consideration whether you want a full removal service, where a company will pack and wrap your items for you or if you’re going to do the packing yourself and just require removal and transportation of your items.

Start packing up your least used rooms first

If you have a spare room or garage then start by packing up these rooms first, allow yourself time to have a thorough sort out and use this time to get rid of any unwanted or unused items. This will save you time in the long run as decluttering will mean less moving and unpacking at your new home.

Pack with care

If you are packing fragile items make sure you use plenty of protective wrapping and store these items in strong boxes. It is advisable to write fragile on the box and use arrows to indicate the right way up, as this will prevent it from getting upturned or stacked under much heavier boxes. If you require boxes for your move, most removal companies will be able to supply you with these.


Label each box with its contents and its new destination, this will save time when you get to your new home as you and your removal company will be able to get each box into the correct place much quicker. Labelling will also save you having to rummage through several boxes to find your essential items too.

Keep your documents close by

Keep your important documents such as birth certificates, passports, utility company details, bank records etc with you and keep them together. Do not pack these in the bottom of a box as losing these will create a lot of unnecessary stress.

    This is a really useful post! Moving house can be super stressful but making sure you plan it well can make things a lot easier and more straightforward! It’s really useful to organise how you pack with the least used rooms first and to make sure that you keep documents etc to hand, this is something that a lot of people might overlook!
