Getting your ducks in a row is a crucial part of moving home. You need to remember things like strategically packing your underwear to prevent spending your first morning rifling through boxes to find them. The same goes for coupling items together that are useless without their other half.
Adopt Noah’s intentions and couple up toothbrushes and toothpaste, shampoo and conditioner, tins and tin openers and for more great pointers like this, look below.
Donate Or Skip It
You could Marie Kondo your possessions before moving home. Put simply, keep items that ‘spark joy’ and of course things that are imperative for your survival, like bread knives. The end goal of clearing your cache of junk is to; rid yourself of useless baggage, keep track of your things with ease and potentially reduce the cost of moving.
Legit Moving Company
It might be tempting to hire a medium-sized van, underestimate the volume of your stuff and coax a few family members into helping you move with the promise of a McDonald’s reward, just so that you can attempt to cut down on moving costs. However, this could be more expensive in the long run. Hiring professional house movers means contents damage cover and your stuff handled and transported by moving veterans. The result is you don’t lose things along the way, no-one pulls a back muscle, your items are intact on arrival, and your blood pressure remains at a healthy level throughout moving day.
First Night Box
This is essential to help you cope with life when your stuff is splattered around your new home. Pack everyday toiletries, pillows and duvets, pyjamas and the essentials to make you a well-deserved cuppa. Alert the mover you wish to keep this box with you for easy access. Your survival box takes care of you through the night and enables you to take on the next day of unpacking.
Downsizing your things, bringing in the professional movers and crafting a first night box means a stress-free first day and night in your new home.
