Are you ready to relocate? If so, you may be approaching your moving date with a mixture of excitement and trepidation. It’s common to feel stressed when preparing to move house, but there are ways to simplify the process. Here are some top tips for a seamless move.

Call in the pros

One of the best ways to avoid stress when planning a relocation is to enlist the help of experts. Removal firms have expertise and experience in transporting belongings and executing logistical operations and they can help you get organized and save you time and effort. Whether you’re moving around the corner, or you’re looking for a company that specializes in long distance moving, it’s beneficial to call in the pros. Ask for recommendations, get quotes, compare prices and services and make sure the firm is reputable and reliable. It’s an excellent idea to see if your neighbors, friends or relatives have any advice, as it’s reassuring to book a company based on reviews you can trust. 

Give yourself time

A lack of time can make the process of moving house a hundred times more stressful. If you’ve got an endless to-do list and no time to get through it, it’s natural to feel like you’re swimming against the tide. Try to give yourself as much time as possible and write a list of tasks to complete before you move. Start packing items you won’t need or use before the move in advance and cross off any jobs you can do ahead of your relocation date, for example, redirecting your mail and contacting utility providers. 

Label your boxes

It may be tempting to fill boxes with whatever you can find when you’re packing up your possessions and you want to finish the job as quickly as possible. The trouble is that you have to unpack your stuff at the other end. If you’ve got boxes filled with miscellaneous items, you don’t know what is in each box, or there are things from different rooms in every crate, it will take you a lot longer to get organized. Organize your belongings, pack similar items together and label your boxes so that you know what is in them and where they are going in your new home. If you have a box marked ‘kitchen’ and ‘plates and bowls’ you can start filling your kitchen cupboards as soon as the truck has been unloaded. 

Pack a bag of essentials

Moving can be exhausting. If you’ve been running up and down the stairs all day and ferrying boxes around, the last thing you need is to be scurrying around trying to find your pajamas, toothbrush and mugs for a cup of tea or coffee before bed. Pack a bag of first night essentials to enable you to relax and enjoy an early night on moving day.
