There are some things that you can do to make the physical moving of your items run a little smoother.

Before you even start packing your items away into boxes you should careful plan which items you can pack away immediately and those that you will need to leave out until the morning of your move. This way you can have any non-essential items that you perhaps only use occasionally such as christmas decorations and seasonal clothing packed away and stored. It is always worth trying to calculate the amount of boxes that you need in advance and also ensuring that you have enough bubble wrap and parcel tape for all of these and a good quality marker pen to write on the boxes. It is also important to ensure that you don’t overfill your boxes and exceed the weight limit as this will cause the boxes to break. Any hazardous items such as your cleaning products should be placed in a separate box away from all of your other items.

When it comes to planning for your moving day it is worth considering packing a small bag for each family member, a bit like packing for a short holiday, to make sure that they have all the essentials and a change of clothing. Moving day does not always go to plan and if you find that you don’t move in until late in the day, in which case you will want to make sure you have some basic available for thay evening and the following morning. There is nothing worse than trying to sort through boxes to try and find the kettle and your bedding.

One great way to ensure that your boxes end up in the right rooms is to not only write on the boxes the items that are contained inside but also the room in which they are to go.   You should also keep a small toolkit or a selection of tools handy so that you can deal with any issues and furniture building requirements that you may have in the few days following your move.
