It’s well documented that moving can be an incredibly stressful time. With a seemingly endless to do list and objects everywhere, you could be forgiven for not knowing where to start.

Before you become too daunted by piles of clothes and boxes, it’s worth taking time out to plan a proper moving strategy. Having a strategy in place can help everything run like clockwork when moving day comes around. To help you do just that, we’ve put together some tips to help you plan your move effectively.

Give yourself plenty of time

Although it may seem obvious, many people overlook the biggest rule of moving. You need to give yourself enough time to plan and pack. Only with enough time will you give yourself the best chance of having everything in place by moving day. Checklists are a great idea because you can start them as soon as you know you’re going to move, and you can update them as moving day looms closer.

Making your list

The simplest way to begin your checklist is by listing the rooms in your house. Divide the room into categories such as pre-pack, and moving day pack. Any smaller items such as ornaments, books and wall art can go into the pre-pack category as they can be boxed up whenever you like. Bigger items such as your furniture and television can go in the moving day pack category. That way when moving day arrives, you won’t be wasting time packing up smaller items. Instead, you can keep your focus on the items that need your attention.

Get your handy items ready

When moving day arrives, you should know which room you want to start in, and have handy supplies ready and waiting in each room. Plenty of time is lost on moves simply looking for handy supplies such as packing tape, scissors, labels and even cleaning supplies. To make everything as seamless as possible, get your supplies ready in advance.
