Upping sticks and moving house is a stressful time – there is so much to do and to organise, as well as the usual stresses of daily life still to contend with! It is important to be well organised when moving to alleviate as much stress as possible – for example, use a company such as this removal company Cambridge to do all the moving for you on the day.
One of the best ways that you can ensure that your move goes smoothly is by being organised with your packing. Here are some of the things you can do to make sure that you are packed to perfection ready for the big day!
One of the most important things that you must remember is to make sure that you label every box. Write the contents of the box (e.g. ornaments) and the room it belongs in and you will have a much easier time finding all your belongings at the other end!
Don’t fill boxes right to the top – if they are too full or heavy this increases the chances of them being dropped, and things being broken or damaged.
Make sure that all delicate and breakable items are well secured using things such as bubble wrap or newspaper to lower the risk of breakages.
Start to gather your boxes as early as possible – you can get boxes for free, such as from the supermarket or ones that you have received deliveries in. Speak to friends, neighbours and family to ask if they would save their boxes for you too – this will save you having to buy boxes.« Back
