You could be the most cool and collected person out there, but one thing that is bound to tip your stress levels is moving home. There is so much to do and organise and more often than not it seems like there isn’t enough time to do it all.
Fortunately, with years of experience in the removals industry, MooveIt Removals have Four handy tips that will help ease your stress and make your house move as smooth as possible.
Declutter – No matter how big or small your current property is the likelihood is, that over the years various amounts of unnecessary bits and bobs will have accumulated, often taking over specific draws or cupboards when there is actually no use for them and there probably never will be. This is where you have to be brutal and make decisions of what to keep and what to throw away. For some this can be simple but for others letting go of some things is quite difficult to do.
It is always best to start decluttering as soon as possible leaving plenty of time before your house move so you have the time to decide what’s worth keeping, what should go to charity shops, what can be recycled and what needs throwing away. It is best to be as ruthless as possible as you will not only feel the benefits while packing up your home but when it comes to unpacking at the other end you will be glad you have a lot less ‘bits’ to find a new space for.

Make A Checklist – Take time to sit and write out a thorough check list of everything you need to get done before moving day arrives. This will not only help you keep on top of what needs doing, you can organise your time to get the tasks ticked off and it ensures you don’t forget anything which also helps take some of the stress out of moving home. Your checklist should include everything to do with the move, dates and times, tasks and people that need informing of your house move such as insurance and utilities.
Get Help – No matter how organised or handy you are it is always easier if you have a little help. Ask friends or family to pitch in where they can help with packing or transporting some stuff from your old house to the new one for you, every little helps! If you have chose to use a removals company like us here at MooveIt Removals you can also enlist the help of our dedicated team, we can help with everything from packing to disassembling and reassembling furniture. Again, getting that extra bit of help can ease the stress of moving home.
Arrange Utilities – Finally, make sure you have all your utilities in order, cancel anything that need cancelling, change your address with relevant companies, if your changing supplier for anything be sure to cancel your old one and get the new ones set up ready for the day you move in. Also don’t forget about any subscriptions you have such as magazines or books, these can easily be forgotten about and kit could be a while before you notice you’ve been left paying for a subscription that you haven’t been receiving as you never changed address. By doing all of this before you move it means that come moving day you wont have to think about any of it and everything will be good to go as soon as your in so all that’s left to do is unpack and get settled.
