Let’s begin by talking about the packing. Packing is the bane of every mover’s life. Although it’s easy to simply throw all your belongings into boxes, you won’t regret being organised in the long run. Label your boxes with a lot of care. Label the boxes accordingly. Kitchen items go in one, and bathroom necessities in another.

We’ll talk now about the hiring of movers. If you do not want to carry that sofa up three flights of steps yourself, it is important to hire reliable help. Read reviews, and ask friends or relatives who have been in the same situation for advice.

Moving house is all about timing. Weekends are often busier and more expensive. You can often save money by moving during the middle of the week.

A little insider’s tip: Pack an essentials kit. The box is not just any ordinary one; it’s your lifeline on the first evening in your new apartment. Consider toiletries and snacks, as well as a change in clothes. If you want to be fancy, maybe some bedding.

If possible, disassemble the furniture before you arrive. It’s no fun to have to deal with the bedframe at midnight just because you forgot to disassemble it earlier.

Do not forget the utilities. Be sure to inform all the relevant companies well ahead of time so you don’t end up without internet or electricity on your first day.

Decluttering is straightforward: moving gives you an excuse to throw out all the junk that has been accumulating “just for case.” Be ruthless! It’s likely that you won’t use it, if the item hasn’t been used in more than a year.

Next, let’s talk about something many people overlook: insurance. If your moving company does not offer insurance, you may want to consider purchasing it yourself.

The parking restrictions in front of both houses on moving day can throw everything into disarray. Be sure to leave enough room outside for the van.

Remember that pets will also need attention and care during the upheaval. You might consider arranging for them to be with a friend or relative until everything calms down.

Keep calm, last but not least. Remember, this will also pass.

These tips are sure to help you move smoothly, whether it’s across the city or farther afield.

Have a great moving day.
