Here are 10 essential tips from Happly to help make your next move as stress-free as possible.

1. Create a moving checklist 

Finding where to start can be daunting when moving house. To make it easier on yourself, make a comprehensive checklist of all the tasks that need to be done before, during and after the move. By breaking down the process into manageable steps, you can ensure that nothing is overlooked.

2. Declutter and organise before packing

Before you dive into the packing process, this is the perfect time to declutter your belongings and organise your possessions. Sort through your belongings and decide what you no longer need. You might be surprised by the items you come across that are no longer useful to you. Consider donating, selling or disposing of these items responsibly to reduce the number of things you need to pack.

3. Pack strategically

Taking a strategic approach to packing can save you time and effort. Begin by packing one room at a time, clearly labelling each box to ensure a smooth transition into your new home. This will make it easier to locate items when you unpack and ensure nothing is left behind, or lost. Make sure you use sturdy packing boxes and packing materials such as bubble wrap and tape to protect fragile items. Try to use small boxes for heavy items and big boxes for lighter items. This can reduce the risk of someone getting injured or potentially damaging your things. 

4. Hire removalists & service providers early

When it comes to the logistics of your move, it’s always a good idea to secure professional removalists and service providers, such as cleaners, to ensure a smooth transition to your new home. Professional movers can bring their expertise and the equipment needed to leave the property in excellent condition.
