1. Get rid of all that clutter

When you have lived in a house, it is normal for lots of unnecessary items to accumulate. Without a doubt, a move is the ideal time to get rid of them. In addition to saving space in your new home, de-cluttering will reduce the amount of items to load and transport.

2. Pack and label your boxes

Ideally, use various sized boxes and use the time you need to pack the items that relate to each other. For example, do not mix the bathroom items with the bedroom ones and ensure that you do not lose anything or spend hours looking for the items you need. In addition, add labels or use a marker on the box listing what it contains and whether it is fragile or not.

3. Create a survival kit

When you move to your new home, you will probably just want to rest and wait until the next day before unpacking. In any case, you will not have time to organise everything. It is, therefore, best to unpack a few boxes that contain the essential items such as bedding, pajamas, bags and all those urgent goods to help you survive during those first few days. 

4. Rely on a removal company

This will cost you but the gains in terms of comfort, effort and time are unquestionable. Today there are many experienced companies that have vans and trucks ready to carry all kinds of cargo and if you want, they will take everything to your new home so you just have to worry about unpacking the boxes and organising the content. 

5. Follow the correct order

Once you are in your new home, it is important that you prioritise which rooms you must organise first. The kitchen and the bathroom should be the highest priorities since, in short, they are used daily. Afterwards, the time will come for the children's room and then the main bedroom and the living room.
