House Moving Tips

Moving House can be a stressful but, if you plan ahead, you can make your big move a lot easier. Let's get cracking on how to make moving day stress-free and easy.

Pack before you get a quote

First up on our moving house list: don't give your removals company an estimate before you have an accurate idea of how much stuff you need to move. It's easy to look around a room and think: “Hmm...about 5 boxes?”, it's less easy to pay up for additional charges when it turns out you have much more stuff than you expected. If you can bear living out of boxes for a couple of weeks, do your best to pack up most of your stuff before you give an estimate. This will make your quote more accurate and spare you any unexpected last minute charges.

Box everything

Boxing all of your gear up will help you keep organised, ensure you don't lose anything, save your removals guys from having to deal with random bits and bobs (which will make you their least favourite person, we promise you) and protect your possessions from getting beaten up en route.

It might sound like one of the simpler moving house packing tips on our list, but you'd be surprised by how many people are totally unprepared for moving day.

Boxing all of your gear up will help you keep organised, ensure you don't lose anything, save your removals guys from having to deal with random bits and bobs (which will make you their least favourite person, we promise you) and protect your possessions from getting beaten up en route. One good house moving tip is to prepare for moving day by disassembling any bulky furniture which won't fit out of the door ahead of time. This will save you a lot of stress, keeping your move on schedule and your doorway unjammed! 

Be ready

o save confusion and hassle, it pays to label your boxes properly. Include the room they should end up in and a description of what's inside. Follow these handy moving house packing tips and you should enjoy a relatively smooth and stressless moving day! Good luck!

Save your removals team time and yourself stress and money by making sure you're all ready to go – with no little extras to sort out – on moving day itself. Is there anything obstructing your way out of your property? At the other end, are there any potential problems at the new place? From narrow, walled driveways to having only one key for the new property, there are all sorts of problems which can surprise you and turn your move into a nightmare. Prepare for them properly by casing the joint before you hit the road.
