Tips For Moving To A New House

Moving from one home to another can be a particularly stressful process that can take its toll on even the best planners. Luckily, there are some ways to pack and move faster, reduce the amount of work, and make the overall process go smoother. In this article, we have listed some of the most important moving house tips that you can follow for a less stressful and easier move.

Pack Ahead

Packing ahead will save you so much time and effort. It is advisable to start packing for your move at least 3-4 weeks prior to your anticipated move date. The earlier you start the packing process, the easier and less overwhelming it will be when your move date arrives. 

Declutter Unnecessary Items

Take some time to go through your belongings and have a clear-out of your unused items that you don’t need to take with you. It is advisable to remove any clutter from your home as soon as you know you’ll be moving across town in order to ease your entire packing process. You can either donate or sell the few items you no longer want but would love to get a little money for. 

Label or Categorize Each Box

Labeling each box and writing a description of its contents in a small notebook can be a good way to keep track of what you’ve packed and to ensure you still have everything when you unpack. However, if you have a box of valuables going with the removalists, it is best to use codename when labeling it on the box. Another notable tip is to color code the boxes per category to easily identify which room they belong in. 

Wrap Delicate & Fragile Items

It is also important to keep your glasses and kitchenware protected, and you can do this by stuffing some newspapers. Wrap fragile items individually and place them in a box that has been layered with several bubble wraps or newspapers to protect them from dents and scratches.
