How to Have a Stress-Free House Move
Posted on 4th April 2023 at 08:09
Moving home can feel overwhelming, but if you take the proper steps, it can become manageable. Here at Wilkinson's Removals and Storage of Bristol, we've been helping people move houses for many years and know the best ways to make your house move go smoothly
So, in this blog post, we'll tell you all our top tips on ensuring your removal process is as effortless as possible, whether you're moving around the corner or further away.
Before you start packing, it's essential that you have plenty of boxes, packing material, bubble wrap and tape to hand. This will make the packing process much simpler because you won't need to continually run out of more supplies mid-pack. Our professional removers recommend getting good quality, strong cardboard boxes which are easy to carry and stack on top of each other so they don't take up too much space. Consider purchasing specialised packaging materials designed specifically for electronics such as televisions or computers which will help keep them safe during transit.
Declutter Before You Pack
It's tempting to start throwing things into boxes when you have a lot of stuff that needs packing, but it's important that before embarking on your house move journey, you declutter through your belongings first and remove any unnecessary items which could just end up taking up precious space in your new home. Separate anything sentimental or irreplaceable into a special box for transporting separately or giving away/selling/donating - this could include furniture pieces like curtains or carpets which won't fit in your new place!
Start Packing Early
If there is one thing that makes moving day more stressful than it already is, it's not having enough time to pack correctly - so begin planning your packing early! It always helps if everything can be neatly packed away, so completing tasks such as defrosting the fridge should be done before then too!

Pick a Room as Your Base of Operation
Choose one room with enough floor space where all boxes can be safely stored until they're ready for pick up by our movers – this typically works best by picking somewhere near an entrance or exit point so staff don't need to trek through each room several times unnecessarily. Try not to clutter the space with items you aren't planning to pack, as they will only get in the way and slow you down.
Getting organised goes hand-in-hand with well-planned packing; group items together according to type, i.e., all books together in one box rather than scattered across multiple ones; clearly label each box with its contents; fill each box evenly; place heavier items at the bottom of boxes with lighter items or well-wrapped breakables on top - failure to follow these simple rules could lead to avoidable accidents during transit! With regards to clothes, use individual hangers within garment bags where possible, or save time and energy with a wardrobe box – this saves having folded garments inside suitcases that then require ironing once unpacked!
Holding off until just before the day itself might seem convenient, but it’s going to leave you stressed out and panicking.
