6 Easy Moving House Tips

Everyone will move house at some point in their lives, and those that have done it already know the heavy stress & chaos it brings. No house move will be completely stress-free. However, there are a few things you can do to make the process run a little smoother. Here are 6 easy moving house tips to make the process easier.

Moving house tips – A couple packing boxes while moving

1) Get Organised Early

Avoid leaving anything until the last minute! Unless you must pack up and leave in a hurry, you usually have around 30 to 60 days to make a plan and ensure that moving day runs smoothly. Check out our Skip Bin Size Guide to ensure everything is organised. Trust us; it’ll make your life a lot easier.

2) Use the Opportunity to Purge

Moving is a great time to organise your belongings and eliminate a few things you don’t use anymore. Hire a skip bin to get rid of rubbish, and check our Waste Type Guide to understand what skip bin you will require. This moving house tip will save you time that you would otherwise spend boxing these belongings and transporting them to your next place, and if you’re using a moving company, this could also save you a buck or two. Hold a yard sale, donate, or sell online as much as you can!

3) Specific Labelling

You can never go overboard with labelling when moving houses! Label each box clearly with what’s inside and where it’s going in your new home. The more detail, the better! Thorough labelling will save you loads of time and frustration when you’re unpacking and trying to find that one thing you need. Trust us; it’s worth it!

4) Plan the Space

To save time on moving day, plot where you will put everything in your new place. It is also handy to take measurements of walls & spaces, especially where big pieces, such as cabinets, will go. Masking tape alongside this is very helpful, so space is mapped out for the day. Long story short, invest in a tape measure and a roll of masking tape!

5) Prioritise your Kitchen

Moving can be stressful & exhausting, & so nourishment during this process is important. Prioritise unpacking your kitchen first. The sooner you can cook a meal in your new home, the sooner it will feel like home.

6) Use a Packing List Template

Using a packing list template will give you a list of everything you need to complete in your move, with different categories. You can then use the same list to unpack because you will know where everything is. Go through your house systematically & list everything in each room, ensuring to make a note of the fragile items.
