Advice on how to make your packing and moving easier

Is it time to change your house or office space? The biggest struggle is always packing and moving your belongings. It takes planning, time and effort and can get unnecessarily stressful if you leave this until the last minute.

If you want to make the process easier and hassle-free, we have some proven advice to give! Some of these moving tips that we have for you might change your approach towards this process and make moving easier and more enjoyable:

Stop procrastinating!
As soon as the move is finalised and even before, don’t keep deferring packing until another day. Start slowly but get it going. Even one box a day is an excellent place to start. Begin with items that are not of everyday use.

Create checklists
Checklists and budgets help keep everything in order. Use a checklist right at the beginning so that you tick off everything on your to-do list. This will help you understand what is completed and what needs your attention.

Forget the unnecessary
Humans tend to hoard. All of us have things that are entirely unnecessary in the home. Make good use of the opportunity, and get rid of the things that you do not need. While moving, do some good and donate clothes or duvets that you do not need anymore. Many places accept used items and give them to the needy.

Storage
If you have things that you do not want to bring with you but also, don’t want to part with yet, there are short and long term storage options.

Separate the work
A room by room approach is better than starting randomly. This will help you keep everything sorted when it comes to setting up your new place too.

Label everything right
Label all your boxes with their contents. This will make everything easier to unpack. You won’t have to fish through all the boxes looking for a particular item.

Use quality boxes
Use good quality boxes and do not overpack these. Professionals usually provide packing boxes. So check this when choosing your moving company.

Go by category
Even if you start packing in multiple places, try to keep things sorted by category. It will just make your life easier.

Look for a good professional company
Look for a professional company that will help you with the move. Look for a company that provides end-to-end services to make your lives easier.

These are a few of the things we suggest that will help make your packing process much easier and hassle-free. Contact us at Clear House Moves.
