Smooth Moves: Tips and Tricks for Stress-Free Removals

Packing up your life’s belongings and moving, whether it be across the road or across the world, is an exciting yet daunting experience. It is the start of a new journey, but with this journey comes a lot of decisions to be made. You might be moving in with someone or moving out to have your own personal space, either way the process can be stressful at times, so we have compiled a list of tips based on the advice from the professional movers at to help you make this move as stress-free as possible. 

Early Planning: 

  • Start Early: Begin the preparations earlier to save yourself from rushing around last minute; this includes organising what professional moving company you will choose to help you move. 
  • Checklists Are Key: A good moving list. It should include everything from moving dates to the order of what rooms to pack first; you will want to leave your kitchen and bathroom goods until last as you will need these up until the moving day. 

Decluttering: Making Your Move Lighter

  • Sort and Simplify: Take an inventory of your stuff and determine what you’re going to leave behind. Less is more in relocating.

  • Donate, Sell, Recycle: Donate unnecessary things that can become part of somebody else’s new home. 

Packing Wisely: A Little Organization Goes a Long Way

  • Room-by-Room Approach: Packing one room at a time is way more efficient. 
  • Labels: Make sure to label each box listing the room and contents.

Special Care for Special Items

  • Fragile Goods:  Transport your breakable goods into a box with bubble wrap or blankets to ensure they are kept safe and secure.
  • Professional Touch: Leave the heavy items to the professionals to avoid breakages and injuries – if you put your back out you will have a hard time setting up your new home! 

Garden Moves: Keeping It Green

  • Plant Prep: Move your plants from the ground into potted plants weeks prior to the move to let them settle in before the move. Make sure to secure tall makes with bamboo stakes to prevent any damage or snapping. 
  • Seek Expert Advice:  If you are not sure you can consult professionals on moving plants.

Take Care of Yourself

  • Rest: Moving is tough. Make sure you aren’t overworking yourself and take it step by step. 
  • New Beginnings: A move is more than just repositioning. It’s a new start to another new page, so enjoy the process.

In Conclusion

Moving can be a stressful time, but it doesn’t have to be if you tackle it the right way. Make sure to plan ahead, keep organised and utilise the expertise of professional movers to make the journey easier. We hope your move goes smoothly and you settle in nicely to your new home!
