Top 10 Tips For Moving House

Moving house can be one of the most stressful experiences of your life. The thought of moving treasured possessions in the back of a truck makes most people feel extremely nervous. However it needn’t be a terrible experience. When you think about it, moving into your new home should be an exciting event not a miserable one.

For more information you should go to a reputable removal firm, if their any good they’ll be happy to give free advice. I recently used an Isle of Wight removals firm and they were excellent.

So what are the 10 things you can do to make moving house as stress free as possible.

1. Make sure you get full cover for any loss or damages in your removals contract. Knowing you are financially covered for any losses immediately lifts a big worry.

2. Often word of mouth can be a great way to find out about the better and the not so good removals firm. However, if your moving within the UK, make sure you check that the firm you choose is a member of the British Association of Removers.

3. Forward planning is vital. So check if your removers will provide boxes and packing crates. If not get some in as soon as you can so that you can pack at your leisure rather than rushing at the last minute.

4. Start packing as soon as possible. Pack everything you wont need before the move as soon as is practical. Packing is a time consuming activity so spreading it out over a longer period will make you feel less stressed.

5. Draw up a plan of your new home for the remover, marking where you wantCutting sarms them to place your furniture.

6. Take down the fixtures and fittings you can as soon as you can or set aside plenty of time to do this nearer the move, It will be more time consuming than you thought.

7. Label every box with the items and destination room. This will be really useful when you want to unpack at the other end.

8. Clearly mark and carefully pack fragile items. Make sure they are the last items to be loaded and that they are on top of heavier items not beneath them.

9. Don’t overload crates with heavy items. It’s better for you and your removers to make more trips with items that are easier to handle than less with excessively heavy or unmanageable packages.

10. Remember to keep essential items available until the last minute. You’ll appreciate a nice cup of tea and some biscuits during the day so don’t pack the kettle until the last moment.
