MOVING TIP #17 – WEAR COMFORTABLE CLOTHES

It’s an obvious thing to say maybe, but if you wear comfortable and practical clothes on moving day it can make all the difference.

You need to be able to move around easily, you will be on your feet all day, and you should also think about the weather as well (wear layers as you will get hotter throughout the day doing so much physical stuff, and will no doubt want to take layers off).

The last thing you want to be doing is trying to find some different clothes halfway through the move…

 

MOVING TIP #18 – FRIDGE / FREEZER CHECKS

Often the fridge and freezer are built in now, so this is a tip only for those that you are moving to your new house.

Switch them off the day before your move, defrost and unplug so that they can be moved easily and safely. Put anything you want to take food-wise into cool bags or an ice box for the move itself – and always allow the fridge/freezer to stand for a while in its new home before switching it back on.

 

MOVING TIP #19 – TRAVEL WITH VALUABLES AND PAPERWORK IN YOUR CAR

Valuables and paperwork are essentials for you and your home, and it’s often worth packing these up and moving them with you rather than letting the removals company move them.

– just so you have them to hand and they don’t get lost.

 

MOVING TIP #20 – TRAVEL WITH BEDDING

By now your car will be very full! (valuables, paperwork, essentials box and a box for each child), but there’s one thing extra thats worth taking with you – and that is bedding.

If you have your bedding ready to go when you get to your home – whether you arrive late at night or have more time to unpack, you know that you have something to sleep on and be more comfortable on that first night.

After all – things can go slowly on moving day, and you may not get your keys until it’s really too late to start unpacking – so best be prepared!.

TIP – Because things can go astray during the move, you may want to consider investing in an inflatable bed just in case!

 

MOVING TIP #21 – COLOUR CODE ROOMS

Get a copy of the floor plan for your new home as soon as you can, and start planning what rooms will be used for once you move.

With this plan in mind, you can allocate a colour to each of the rooms in the new house (green=kitchen, red=living room etc….) and add those colours onto your new homes floor plan (this may of course change once you get into the space, but it’s a quick and easy way of trying to put the right boxes in the right room from the start).

Simply add a coloured sticker onto each box** being taken out of your home, and then in your new home, put a sheet of that coloured paper on the corresponding door – that way the removals company will know exactly which room to place each box in your new home.

    Me and my family are moving next month and are dreading moving all of our stuff to the new house. I like your tip to consider moving some of the heavier furniture into storage when you move. That why you can worry about it later, and it won’t get in your way when moving everything else.

    Almost complete moving house checklist. Sorting out items first can help to know the number of boxes that will need. Always keep valuable items with you no matter how reliable the removals company.

    These are definitely good tips! 🙂 I am planning to move to another apartment soon and the fact that I live alone with my two dogs makes me think that I will forget to do something or I will not really do it that good. I need your tips! Thank you for sharing this with me. Lately, I am spending time reading more tips about what not to do when move house.:) I found them quite funny!

    Often, relocation is a daunting task. But, with innovative and humorous ideas, you can make it stress-free. When you choose a professional moving company, you don’t have to worry about your belongings and heavy luggage. Pack some clothes in a colourful box for your children, it will keep them engaged and will be a matter of fun. Counting your luggage and boxes is your task; you must take care of it carefully.
