Moving To A New Home? Make Your Life Easier With These Tips

They say that moving house can be of the most stressful life events. From potentially relocating to a different part of the country (or even world) to packing up an entire house into a removals van, it takes a lot of time and energy. There are some tips though to hopefully make the process a little simpler.

Use a moving company

The first tip to make your life easier when moving to a new place is to use a moving company. Moving companies are companies that are specialised in making your moving process as seamless as possible. They do this in several ways, such as organising the logistics of moving and having expert movers transport your heavy furniture in a way that ensures that nothing breaks. This means that you don’t have to do any heavy lifting at all.

Declutter before packing

Everyone secretly has an inner hoarder in them, and this persona is most noticeable when it’s time to move. There are so many items that are not worth bringing and instead need to be either tossed, sold or donated. It’s wise to have 3 stacks of items to divide the stuff in. One stack for keeping, one for trashing and another for donating/selling. This will make your move much lighter and easier.

Purchase high quality moving boxes

Quality matters when it comes to moving boxes because you definitely don’t want your stuff playing jenga as you transport it. Invest in sturdy, durable boxes designed for moving. They’ll keep your belongings safe and secure, and they stack neatly, making loading and unloading a breeze. You can often score these boxes at a local moving or storage company. Another option is to ask around – maybe your friends or family have some spare moving boxes of a high quality.

Plan ahead of time

Planning can be a pain but is your moving day’s best friend. Start by marking the big day on your calendar, then work backward. Create a checklist of tasks and timelines, maybe even set reminders on your phone – whatever works to keep you on track. Remember to inform necessary parties about your move: utility companies, subscriptions, and don’t forget the friends who’ve been eyeing your plants. Planning ahead keeps the chaos at bay!

Labelling makes your life easier

Labelling your boxes might feel a bit tedious as you’re packing up your life into cardboard squares, but it definitely pays off! Get descriptive with what’s inside each box. Also include the room it belongs in too, so movers can drop it off in the right spot. When you’re looking for that one thing you need right away, you’ll know exactly which box has the goods.
