1. Start early

To save yourself some stress, be organised and start preparing your move a month or two in advance. This way, you will save money as you won’t be paying unnecessary costs that you didn’t plan for.

2. Throw away stuff you don’t need any more

By making an inventory list, you can see which items you definitely want to take with you and others that you really no longer need anymore. You can then throw away or donate the belongings that you don’t want anymore. This way you can reduce the time it will take to pack as well as the removal costs of your move.

3. Pack an emergency essential bag

With everything that comes along with moving house, one of the best moving tips out there is to pack an emergency bag that you can easily access when you first arrive in your new home. Pack a spare change of clothes and toiletries so that you’re not running around trying to find in which box you packed the toothpaste!

4. Calculate your volume

One of the major moving tips that you should take with you is to measure the volume of your move, as you will save time when requesting quotes from removal companies.

5. The heavier the item, the smaller the box

No one wants to carry a big, heavy box, you may hurt yourself whilst trying! Which is why having a small box for heavy items will make the moving process a lot easier. Keep larger boxes for lighter items that are hard to carry on their own and never overpack a box!

6. Pack a clear box with everything you’ll need on day one

As well as an emergency essentials bag, you may need to think about a shower curtain, towels, bed sheets and even snacks! This will make you feel a lot more comfortable and will allow you to settle in quicker!

7. Defrost your fridge and freezer

You should really be doing this a day or two before you move. Then wipe down all the liquid from the inside. If you don’t, when you transport your fridge, you may find it full of mildew! No one wants that!

8. Take photos of how your electronics are connected

Taking pictures of how things are plugged in will save you lots of time and stress, especially when you just want to watch the TV. This way you can easily see how things were plugged in before you take everything apart!

9. Donate to charity

If you have old clothes, shoes, bags or any other personal items that you don’t want anymore, you can donate them to a charity! This way you’ll be giving to a cause whilst also reducing the amount of stuff you have to move! You can drop off your belongings at any charity shop and they will be more than happy to take them off your hands.

10. Write a review

The best way that you can help others is to write a review of your experience with your removal company. Whether it was good or bad, you will be helping others like you who are interested in finding the best removal company for them.
