Wednesday, June 17, 2015

Are you about to move house? Yes - then you are probably feeling incredibly stressed out. Let’s face it, moving house is one of the biggest tasks there is; it’s stressful, hard work and incredibly tiring.

While moving house can be a good thing, especially if you’ve found the house of your dreams, it can also be overwhelming. The key to moving house with minimal stress comes from being as organized as possible, the more organized you are, the better.

If you haven’t spent some time planning in advance and getting everything packed up, then moving day will be chaotic. You don’t want to be panicking on moving day, panicking plus stress is not a good combination.

To help you keep your move as stress-free as possible, here are some handy tips:

● Don’t leave anything until the last minute

The key to moving success is organization; that’s why it’s so important that you don’t leave things until the last minute. As soon as you find the perfect house and have a moving date, start getting organized.

The best way to start preparing for your move is by creating a countdown list that has all the steps you need to take leading up to the big day. This should include things like when to hire a removal company and when to start packing boxes, etc.

●● De-clutter

Before packing everything up, it’s a good idea to spend some time de-cluttering. Moving house is the perfect time to purge your belongings and get rid of any items you no longer need.

Over time we all collect junk - don’t make the mistake of taking it when you move. Spend at least a day or two going through everything before packing it, sorting it out into things to keep and throw away.

●●● Get professional help

If you are only moving a short distance and can pack up everything into your car, then it might not be necessary to hire professional help. But if you have a lot of stuff or are moving a long distance away, it’s a good idea to consider getting professional help.

While you might think that you can pack up a van just the same as movers can, you would be wrong. Professional movers know how to pack up a van to ensure that everything fits and that everything is safe.

There are some good moving companies to choose from, to find the best moving companies, your best bet is to get a referral from a friend. While you can find hundreds of moving companies online, if someone you know can recommend a good company, go with them.

●●●● Don’t buy boxes

Many people make the mistake of spending hundreds of moving boxes when there is no need to. Instead of buying the boxes for your move, why not get them from shops and grocery stores? Stores throw away hundreds of boxes each week, so why not ask to have some of their old boxes?

It might be a hassle traipsing round store after store asking for boxes for your move, but it’s definitely worth it.

Moving house can be incredibly stressful, but if you follow these simple tips, you will make it much easier for yourself.
