When it comes to moving house, it can seem like a daunting task to say the least. Between moving just everyday personal items like toiletries and clothes all the way up to the big ticket items like beds, couches, tables and more, it can seem like it’s a never-ending task, especially if you don’t have much in the way of help. Are you looking for some tips to make moving a bit less stressful? Check out these ideas below.
Ditch The Old Stuff
It might sound like it’s a bit wasteful, but getting rid of your old furniture if you’re downsizing is a great way to save on the moving stress. Buying a new bed or couch can be just what you need to help pave the way for an easier transition from place to place. Furniture companies like Hudson Furniture specialise in a variety of styles and makes and are sure to have something to suit your budget, tastes and needs. If your old stuff is still in good shape, why not donate it to a charity shop, give it to a friend or sell it on the likes of eBay or other secondhand selling pages.
Packing seems to be the bane of everyone’s existence and for good reason. With having to wrap all those little knick knacks, glasses, china and more in paper and bubble wrap followed by boxing them up, it can be a pain to say the least. Packing early can help alleviate the stresses of moving day (or moving month!) by making sure you’re well prepared ahead of time and can move the smaller things in advance of the big day.
Have A Rummage Sale
A rummage sale (also known as car boot or garage sales) are a great way to offload some of those little bits and bobs you may not want anymore, but you want to be able to gain something from letting them go. Selling old CDs, DVDs, VHS tapes and more can be the perfect way to make some extra money to help with moving costs all the while getting rid of things that have just been collecting dust. It’s a win-win!
Hire A Moving Company
Hiring a moving company to help you take care of the big move is an ideal way to save yourself time and stress. Leave it to the professionals when it comes to moving your bigger things (and multiple boxes). It helps that a moving truck can take many items at once, helping to reduce the time it takes to physically move everything to your new home. If you aren’t in the market for a moving company, why not offer some friends a treat of pizza and beers if they help you do the heavy lifting? It can double as a housewarming!
So if you have a big move coming up, hopefully these cool ideas to reduce stress will help you get more prepared for moving day, with helpful tips to make sure everything goes smoothly. Good luck!
