Advice for a Stress-Free Move

 Moving homes is up there among the most stressful events in life. But it doesn’t have to be that way. You can organize things in advance to make the whole experience as smooth as possible, and all it takes is some careful planning. It does not matter if you are downsizing or upsizing, or moving into a rental, if you put the right plans in place, you can eliminate a lot of that stress and unnecessary panicking from your life.

Pick the Right Removals Firm

It is best you get this date set in as early as you can. First of all, ensure you get the best removals firm you can, so you need to do your research. Check their websites, such as Bekins Moving Solutions, and look for customer responses. Also, think about any referrals you have received. By booking early, you can avoid the weekends and public holidays, for example, all of which will be busier on the roads and may cause delays. You may also want to get a few quotes, so you get the best quality service for the lowest price. Once you have an appropriate date set in stone, it gives you a focus.     


This is another aspect that should be started well in advance of the move date. Get throwing away all that rubbish you don’t need to start off with. Maybe you need a few trips to the dump. Then think about selling, or giving away any items, such as furniture, that you don’t need but could have a new lease on life somewhere else. Decluttering will make the whole experience easier and may well mean you need a smaller removals truck. 

Create a List

There is so much to consider when it comes to moving, from ensuring you’re moving to the correct place to canceling your utility bills. For your peace of mind, it makes sense you create a list of everything you need to do and tick these off along the way. Each move is different, but you may find it helpful to download a moving home checklist off the internet to help get you thinking.

Start Packing

It may help if you made a packing plan in advance of the packing process, but whatever you do, start packing early. You never know how much stuff you actually have until you start putting it all into boxes. So, clearly, you want to start with the non-essentials. With enough time, you will be able to wrap everything correctly and avoid any unnecessary damage. Do not overpack boxes as this is one surefire way to get things broken. You will also be able to label the boxes appropriately too, with room and items, which will helo the removals firm when they get to the new location.

Organize Utilities

You can usually start advising the companies you use for the basic running of the house a few weeks in advance, so get the ball rolling as soon as you can, ready to provide a final read when you move.
