Moving house can sneak up on you – one minute you’ve found a new house and the next second the removalist truck is pulling up outside! As prepared as you think you may be, there are a few common mistakes that people make which can make moving house that little bit more difficult. To give you helping hand, we’re sharing the top mistakes people make when moving so you can avoid them yourself!
Booking a removalist too late
There’s a lot to think about when you’re moving house but please don’t forget to book your removalist! If you leave it too late, you’re likely to have slim pickings when it comes to dates and times. To avoid disappointment, call the removalist company as soon as you have your moving date finalised.
Leaving it to the last minute to pack
This is one of the most common mistakes we see. People often underestimate how much stuff they have and are then caught out at the last minute realising that half the house still needs to be boxed up. As soon as you know you’ll be moving house, start packing – you can begin with items that you don’t use very often.
Forgetting to clearly label the boxes
So many people start packing and assume they’ll remember what’s in the boxes. Unfortunately, this generally isn’t the case and there’s nothing more annoying than having to open up every box to check the contents before putting it in the correct room. Clearly label the top and side of the box and don’t be too general about what’s inside. It makes unpacking a whole lot easier.
Making your boxes too heavy
We’ve all done this – you pile as much stuff as you can into the massive box in the middle of the room only to find it’s too heavy to lift. Bigger isn’t better when it comes to boxes and smaller boxes tend to be a smarter option as they’re easy for everyone to lift
Packing items you don’t use anymore
When you’re moving house, try to take the opportunity to declutter rather than just throwing everything in boxes. Be honest about items that you no longer use and give them to charity if still in good condition. Decluttering at one end means less to unpack at the other!
