Four Basic Moving Tips You Need to Know

Everyone moves at least once in their lifetime especially if you live in Edinburgh. Moving from one house to another can be a stressful situation as it usually involves a lot of work to ensure a smooth transition. Occasionally things can get lost or damaged when you choose to carry out the moving and storage on your own.

But fear not, we have prepared this handy list of essential moving tips to ensure your move goes as stress free as it possibly can should you choose to take care of it yourself.

Prepare Early

There is nothing as frustrating as packing to the last minute. This is usually messy as you will most probably end up shoving things in places where they are not even supposed to be. You need to create enough time so that you can have peace of mind as you tuck away all your belongings neatly ready to be used in the new home without any complications. This is also a great time to sort out all your belongings to have the things that you need and the ones that will be tossed out to start a new life without any clutter. You don’t necessarily have to throw away the items that you don’t use but can give them away to charities or make some little money by taking them to a car boot sale before you leave.

Make A List

This is one of the most important steps when you are moving house. This might seem like something tiresome but it really helpful and you will find it beneficial at the end of the day. This can be done early like 2 months before the actual move to make sure that everything is documented. It can be done from room to room to make the process much simpler. This list can be used when unpacking in the new home as a means to ensure that nothing was left behind or lost in transit.

Be Organised

This requires you to get lots and lots of boxes where you will put all the belongings in a clear and precise systematic manner. It is usually best to pack things according to the rooms where they will be used. These should be marked clearly to avoid any confusion. You can try color coding the various boxes from different rooms to make them more distinct. Ensure all the valuables as well as things that can break easily are well covered and protected so that they can reach the final destination without the risk of damage.
