It is no exaggeration that moving house can be one of the most stressful things that we can experience in life. We are all constantly looking for ways to make sure that our house moves run as smoothly as possible.
We know it can feel completely overwhelming thinking ahead to a big move and it can feel difficult to know where to start. So here is our super simple list of how to make sure your next moves is as stress-free as it can possibly be.
Plan, Plan Plan
A really efficient and smooth house move all begins with detailed and methodical planning. Going through your home and each individual room, putting together a really solid packing list is the best place for all home movers to begin. So you will want to start by going through the most unnecessary items that you don’t need on a day to day basis.
Decorative items, for example, lamps, cushions and mirrors. From there you will want to build your list ending up with the most essential and necessary everyday living items from beds, sofa and bathroom and kitchen essentials. You will then want to be working through this list in the lead up to the big move, putting away all the items you can live without, temporarily, until you are left with only the items you absolutely need on a day to day basis.
This list should also make sure that you know exactly where everything is at all times. By colour coding, labeling and referencing packed items on your list, should anyone need anything that is already packed with you will know immediately where to look. This will also ensure that come the big move you will only have your largest items left that need packing up, meaning that you will only have to do the minimal amount of packing on the move weekend itself.
For those of you that aren’t into crippling back injuries and nervous breakdowns, there’s really no other way to do this than by calling in the professionals. Making sure that you hire a professional removals company is the best way to ensure your house move is as smooth as possible.
Look for the best-trusted removal company in your local area and ask for their removal quotes. That way you know how much it will cost you and you will also have the peace of mind that your belongings are on good hands.
