When Should I Start Packing For A House Move?

That is a good question. When it comes to moving house, the team at Geelong removalist, has come across many different approaches to packing up a house and when to start packing. In general, it is best to start packing as soon as possible. 

When it comes to moving house, the latest thing in Geelong is to “declutter”. It is an American idea, but it is not a bad concept. Why move with stuff that you don’t any longer need or want? Both garage and car boot sales are popular in Geelong. You can find your local Geelong car boot sale on Gumtree. Alternatively, you can organise a garage sale. 

House Moving: When Should I Start To Pack? 

Once you know what you want to take, you should start to pack. Things can more easy go wrong when you try to pack everything at once. You may rush and that is often when accidents and breakages take place. That is not what you need when you are trying to move house. You should have a proper plan for that.

Packing up one room at a time is a great idea. Go through everything and make a mental note of what you want to pack. Bring your boxes up to the room along with a packaging checklist. 

We do advice our clients to write everything down as they pack up their old house. That is the best way to ensure you don’t leave anything you will miss at your new house behind.
