7 Tips for a Stress-Free House Move

Stress-Free House Move

Whether you’re just moving down the street or to another corner of the country, moving to a new house can be stressful. It can help enormously if you hire professional Melbourne Removalists, but there is still more you can do to make your move to a new home go as smoothly as possible.

Pack Early

Are you the person who packs the night before when going on holiday? If yes, then this approach will certainly not work when moving home. You need to start packing early. Create a spot in your home and name it ‘Packing Central’, then divide all your items into three lots: keep, sell, and donate.

Start packing the items that you are keeping and sell the ones which you are not. You can also donate your unused, non-necessary items and to your packing task. This will save not only your time but also your energy.

Make Lists

Don’t start packing things in boxes randomly. Start making lists and label every box, so you can easily find your items when you reach your new house.  The amount of time it will save will amaze you, and also prevent shouting matches when others in your family demand that you tell them where their favourite DVD or game is, for example.

  1. Get an Early Start

When it actually comes to moving, you need to be aware that things can take longer than you might expect. And trust us, there’s really nothing worse than trying to finish your move in the dark.

You can reduce time related stress by making sure you get a bright, early start on the big day. Get to bed early the night before, set an alarm and start your day with a healthy breakfast to keep you going.
