Firstly, congratulations on your new home!

We have some ideas and helpful advice to make your big task more manageable and straightforward; packing, boxing and being ready for moving. Here are our guides and advice for moving. We know precisely moving is tiring, complicated and regularly listed as one of life’s most stressful events. We were in a similar situation several times.

So please sit back, grab a snack and read our tips!

1. Take your time

Giving yourself plenty of time will allow you to organise a schedule to ensure you designate sufficient time to complete each item on your task list and collect all the necessary materials you need for your move.

Beginning this process as soon as possible will give you time to purge unwanted possessions, so you only take what you need to your new home. You will also have time to make a complete inventory for each packing box to simplify your unpacking.

Starting early with your preparations will help ensure you don’t exhaust yourself trying to fit too many tasks into a short space of time. If you want a stress-free house move, it is best to pace yourself - don’t leave it all to the last minute.

2. Be flexible

With so many different parties involved with moving house, things will not always go to plan, so it is essential to be flexible to changes during this time to keep stress levels down. Getting started on your tasks early should give you some breathing room to re-think how to progress if you meet any obstacles temporarily.

It may be worth having a backup plan and a list of the jobs you have to complete, allowing you to bring forward other tasks if something gets postponed, so you keep up your productivity.

3. Create a document box, moving file

Store all necessary documents, such as passports, house deeds, wills and insurance papers, in one box or file to ensure easy access. Keep this file in a safe place, in your purse or bag, where you can find it quickly, and you will not pack it in a box.

It may also be a good idea to create electronic copies of important documents by scanning and saving them onto a computer.

4. Use a moving checklist

It pays to be organised during this busy time, so take a look at our moving checklist for a comprehensive guide on what you will need to do and consider and at what stage you will need to do them when moving house.

Our checklist will help make sure the entire process of moving house runs smoothly, right up until you are settled into your new home.

5. Visit your new area

If you are moving to somewhere you are not familiar with, visit the local neighbourhood and have a walk around the area. This can make the transition to your new house less overwhelming, and you can begin to feel at home in your new town.

It will also allow you to find the closest shops to know where to go to stock up on necessities during your first few busy days.

Many man and van companies are registered on our platform, and we are sure you will find the right one. Get Free Quotes. If you are moving house soon, don't forget to check out our other articles on making the process as smooth as possible.

However, moving such a heavy and bulky item can pose some risks if not done correctly. Knowing how to move a mattress safely and efficiently is important to prevent damage to the mattress and avoid any injury.
