5 Tips on How to Organise a Moving

When time to move houses arrive, it's obvious that pre-planning is key. If you know what you're doing, the process can be streamlined, efficient, and who knows, even enjoyable. Use our moving checklist to make sure the big day goes as smoothly as possible.

1. Clean and decorate in advance

Since both cleaning and decorating are much easier in an empty house, we recommend you take care of both before you move in all your belongings. 

2. Take the opportunity to get rid of junk

Moving houses gives you a valuable opportunity to go through all your belongings and get rid of what you don't need. With everything packed up and in one place, it's easy to see how much you no longer need. Use the opportunity and your new home will be a cleaner, uncluttered and more pleasant place to live.

3. Pack smart before you move

Prepare your boxes well and your move will be much easier. Organise your belongings by grouping similar items together. The key is to think carefully about how you would like to unpack. Generally, a smart plan is to group items by room, which allows you to pack and unpack each box without moving around the house. 

In addition, labelling each box allows you to unload the van as efficiently as possible. What's more, you'll find everything you need as quickly as possible when you arrive at your new home.

4. Have your day-to-day items in a small luggage

No matter how anxious you are, it's unusual to pack your boxes, move and unpack them all in one day. There will be certain items you can't do without, so pack them all together in a travel bag for a stress-free first night in your new property. It's worth having toiletries to hand, as well as some vital refreshments such as tea and coffee. Moving is a tricky business, and it doesn't hurt to take caffeine breaks from time to time.

5. Introduce yourself to your neighbours

Advice on how to organise a move to another house is not limited to the practicalities of moving all your belongings from A to B. There is also a social aspect to consider. It is best to introduce yourself to your new neighbours as soon as possible. You may even be lucky enough to get a helper to unload the van.
