Make a plan

Having a plan is a good way to tackle almost anything and moving house is no different. Make a detailed list for each room of your house of everything you want to take with you to your new home.

Do this at least a month before you are scheduled to move. A key part of your move going well is to be prepared and organised. 

Have a declutter

Now: you have a list of everything you want to take with you. But what about everything you don’t want?

Put this all into piles with all the stuff that can go to charity in one pile, everything that needs throwing away in another. 

If you find that there are items you really can’t part with, this is a good time to look into self storage in Ely. You will have a place to store your items whilst you decide what to do with them.

Decide whether you are doing this yourself… 

… or if you are using a removal company. There are a great deal of benefits to using a removal company when house moving Ely. They will have a great deal of professional experience so you will know that your items will arrive at your new home safely. 

Many removal companies will also come and pack your belongings for you which can take away a lot of the moving pressure. 

Pack room by room

Packing needs to be in an immensely organised fashion. If you decide to pack everything yourself, then make sure to do your packing room by room. 

Pack everything in your living room, then do your kitchen and so on. This is another reason why it is so important to begin organising your house move within plenty of time of your house move. 

Take extra care with anything breakable

Whilst a lot of items can be put straight into boxes, anything breakable will need some extra care. Make sure to wrap anything made of glass in bubble wrap and label the items as FRAGILE.

And pack important things LAST

Always pack your important items last. Important documents, passport, medicines, and toiletries will most likely be the first things you need when you arrive in your new home. 

Label all your boxes

This may seem obvious. But in the rush of trying to get everything done it could be very easy to just fill up a box, tape it up and then move on to the next. 

Take a moment to write down what is in the box and be as detailed as possible. Future you will be so grateful you took the time to do this.
