Moving Hacks People Swear By
Moving house can be stressful at the best of times, but big events like these can be completed successfully with a well-thought out plan.
In the last year, some of us may have had the additional pressures of moving house during lockdown which requires extra organisation.
But there are some handy, and also slightly quirky, tips people have been sharing online which they have used during their moves. But what do they suggest that we do?
Print out a map of your new home and colour code your boxes in line with the rooms. That way, you know what is meant to go where. Alternatively, you can put numbers on the boxes. Think of it as a bit like Deal or No Deal without the big cash prizes and phone calls from the Banker.
Don’t End Up Screwed
Dismantling and then reassembling a bed is perhaps one of the more fiddly tasks involved in a house move. But simply taping screws and other small fittings to the frame will save you hassle. And it means you can look forward to a good nights’ sleep after your move.
Make Sure You’re Top Drawer
A chest of drawers is one of the bulkiest items you can move and that’s without anything in the drawers. But drawers can be left full and then either transported in your car or wrapped up individually in the removal van. Either way, it will ensure the unit can be set up again easily.
Leave Your Clothes Hanging
There are no hard and fast rules about moving clothes to your new home. But do you really have the time to fold and pack clothes in boxes and suitcases? If not, you can keep all your clothes on hangers so you can put them straight in your wardrobe.
Get Snap Happy
After a hard day’s moving, you’ll want to sit in front of the television and relax with your favourite show. But you should take a photo of the back of your television before you take it apart for the removal van so you can set it back up again.
