6 Key tips to make your house move a little less stressful

So, the big day’s arrived, and you’re feeling nervous. Whether it’s your first house move or your tenth, it’s always a monumental day. Still, taking a few precautions on the day can be an excellent way to make the house move that bit easier overall.

#1 Get professional moving support for your belongings

One of the simplest ways to make your house move a little easier is getting help from a local professional man and van team. Local house movers help get your belongings from A to B, so you don’t have to panic about driving with a precariously overfilled car or van; instead, you won’t have to worry about transporting anything other than yourselves to the new home! 

#2 Have a moving day checklist

A lot happens on moving day. As such, we highly recommend you create a moving day checklist with all the events and times you expect for the big day. This can give you an easily accessible resource during the move that tells you what you need to plan for next, helping give you a more precise plan to follow with less stress overall.

#3 Don’t rush to pack

In the heat and bustle of the moment, rushing around to pack everything into the moving vans can feel manic. This can also drastically increase the chances of items getting dropped or damaged, further aggravating the situation. As such, we highly recommend taking the time to load items into the moving van rather than working at breakneck speed; it’ll do you good!

#4 Aim to arrive at the new home before the moving team

When it comes to your house move, where possible, arriving at the new property before the house moving team can be an excellent way to calm down a little. Indeed, many of us worry about the thought of leaving the movers waiting around while we finalise the previous property. 

With this in mind, if you’re purchasing the new home with someone else (for example, a partner), ensuring they’re ready at the new home to let the movers in can be an excellent way to cut back on the worry of your move.

#5 Know where each belonging is packed onto the moving vans

It’s not just getting out of your old home that’s tricky – unpacking your belongings into the new home can also be a bit of a headache! With this in mind, we recommend keeping a clear idea of where everything is packed on the moving plan (with a list, ideally). This can help you unpack each box into the fitting room, making it much less stressful to unpack once you’ve arrived.

#6 Put your feet up!

If you are getting overwhelmed by the big day, don’t be afraid to stop for a few minutes for a breather. This simple action can help you regain a sense of calm and allow you to head back into the proceedings with a clearer head and a much more focused attitude (helping prevent accidents).

Final thoughts 

There’s no doubt that moving house is a big occasion. However, following today’s top tips, you can make your home move much less challenging overall.

Hopefully, today’s ideas will have given you some inspiration for making the most of your own moving day goals. Still, this is your experience – so don’t be afraid to try something new if you think it could help you stay calm and take the stress out of moving day!

What insurance does a man with a van need?

Operating as a man with a van can be a lucrative venture, but it is imperative to have the right insurance in place. The correct insurance not only protects your vehicle against damages from accidents, theft, or vandalism, but also secures your business against various risks such as liability claims, loss or damage to goods in transit, and potential legal expenses.
