House Move Hacks You Should Know

Moving to a new house can be incredibly stressful, so you need to make sure you’ve planned and prepared effectively.

Luckily, we’ve got years of experience when it comes to helping people move house, and so we’ve picked up some great hacks along the way to make the whole process that little bit smoother.

  • Get new furniture delivered to storage

If you have furniture that’s intended for your new place but you’re still in the final stages of completion, the last thing you want is to clutter your home. Having furniture delivered straight to storage can solve this and reduce the stress of having to move it back and forth.

  • Have your mail redirected to storage

The above hack can also be applied to your mail. If you are having to move into temporary accommodation before you can complete the house-move, you won’t want your mail being sent to either your old or new house. Have it redirected to one of our personal mail boxes to solve this.

If packing up your home wasn’t enough, there’s also finding the right boxes to put it in too. We have specialised packaging such as wardrobe boxes that are perfect for clothing storage. Not only are they incredibly useful during the move, but they are great for the first few days of living in your new home as you may not have built your wardrobe just yet and this box can hold your clothes until then.

  • Label your wires

When you arrive in your new home, you’ll want to set up things like your TV and WiFi as soon as you can. That’s why you should take photos of which plugs go into which devices. Trust us, this hack will save you hours of untangling and messing around when you arrive.

  • Create an ‘open-me’ first box

Unpacking boxes when you arrive in your new home can take weeks, if not months. If you’ve hastily packed all your belongings away, then you may find yourself rooting through endless boxes just to find one essential thing so pack a box with all the items you’ll need right away. We’re not just talking about things like medication or clothing here, we mean items like plates, cutlery, washing up liquid and any other items that you’ll need in the first few days.
