Top 10 Tips for Moving Home

Top 10 Tips for Moving Home

  1. Make a checklist. Prepare yourself for all the tasks you need to complete beforehand.
  2. De-clutter your home in preparation for the move. Reduce costs of the move and storage by getting rid of excess items early.
  3. Start packing as soon as convenient, so you don’t leave it to the last minute.
  4. Have deadlines. Book your movers as soon as possible. Pack by a certain date. Give yourself leeway.
  5. Get as many packing supplies as possible. Don’t underestimate the number of boxes and bubble wrap you may require. It’s better to buy these from the mover rather than scavenge the local supermarket.
  6. Tell relevant people that you’re moving. Your bank, utility suppliers, DVLA and others will need to be notified. Make sure everyone is aware.
  7. Consider parking. Think of how the movers will be able to access your current and new home when loading and unloading.
  8. Communicate with your movers. Give them a full idea of what the move will entail and any items like pianos that may require specialist equipment.
  9. Double check you have cleared the home. You’d be surprised what sometimes gets left behind – especially in the garden.
  10. Have a survival kit for the first night or two, and keep all of your essentials to-hand.
