Moving home can be both an exciting and stressful experience. As you move from one home to the next, don't let the lack of space during the transition get you down.
Here are a few tips to make your move a little easier.
Tips on moving home easily
- Box it up
It’s important to make sure that you have plenty of boxes before you get started with packing up your home. To avoid confusion, clearly label your box by assigning them to specific rooms. Use quality tape to keep your boxes closed and to make sure they are stable and secure. If you’re looking for boxes, we’ve got you covered! View our list of packing items.
- One room at a time
Pack up one room at a time and make sure you clearly label your boxes with the room that contents belong to. This will help to avoid confusion when unpacking, it will also make the whole process a lot less time consuming.
- Easy does it
Don’t let your packed boxes become too full or too heavy. A great way to check this is to try to pick it up, if you can’t pick it up with ease, then it’s probably too heavy.
When disassembling furniture, put all of the loose bits and pieces (screws, legs, bolts etc into a bag and attach it to the piece of furniture. This way you'll keep all your important pieces in one place to make it much easier when you need to put them together.
- Take your time
This process doesn’t need to be stressful. If you are uncertain about how much you can fit into your new place, put them in storage while you make a decision. That way when you are in the space you can add to each room piece by piece while knowing that your items are safe and secure. Now is the perfect time to declutter.
