Top 7 tips for having a stress-free moving day

Moving to a new home is one of the most exciting things to do. It gives you the opportunity to make a fresh start, find opportunities, and create your home sweet home. The tasks that are required when moving to a new home, however, can be quite overwhelming.

Here at Space4U, we have put together some tips and tricks to make moving day less stressful.

Give yourself plenty of time

Time management is vital when moving to your new home. Give yourself at least a couple of months before moving day, so that you can get all of the tasks done. If you leave everything until the last minute, the pressure will add up, and you will start to panic.

Create a checklist

Making a simple step by step plan can help you prioritise what tasks need doing first. Whether it’s the room you start with, or the most important items, creating a thorough moving home checklist will help you get through these tasks.

Clear out the clutter

The last thing you want to do is to pack up something that you don’t use anymore. Make sure that you have a good declutter of the house before packing.

Label your boxes

Labelling your boxes can be super helpful when trying to track all of your items during the move. Make sure to keep the labelling system as clear as possible, for example:

Room: Kitchen
Items: Cleaning Products

Get family and friends involved

If you are starting to think that you won’t be able to pack everything before the moving day, ask friends and family to help. Having an extra pair of hands is always useful and less stressful when packing.

Keep everything tidy

A tidy house means a clear mindset. Keep everything clear and organised as possible will help you find where your items are, and also visually plan your next steps.
