Make Moving Easier

Make Moving Easier

It’s well known that moving home is highly stressful. So, you need to prepare in advance and get needy for the big move. Whether you’re moving cross-country or across the street, there are some things that you just have to do and get in order. These organising tips will help you make the moving process easier, less stressful and better for the whole family.


Sort through all your belongings, like your furniture, children’s toys, clothes, books and even crockery. Give any unwanted items to your friend or the local charity home. Don’t pack them and take them with you and only to have them sorted out in the new home.

Labels all boxes clearly

Make sure that all boxes are labelled clearly with their contents. You can take it a step further by using colour coding to organise where the boxes will go in your new home.

Right size of boxes

Small boxes for heavy items like books and large boxes for light items like linens and pillows. This is to reduce the chance of breaking your valuables and making the moving job easier. Put heavier items at the bottoms of the boxes, lighter items on top.

Secure the boxes well

Use the tape generously to close the bottom and top seams, then making a couple of wraps all the way around the box’s top and bottom edges, where pressure is concentrated.

Bundle the breakables

As you pack your dishes, put packing paper around each one, then wrap bundles of five or six together with more paper. Pack dishes on their sides, never flat, and use plenty of crunched-up paper as padding above and below. Cups and bowls can be placed inside one another, with paper in between, and wrapped three or four in a bundle. Pack them all in a dish-barrel boxes and label it “FRAGILE – THIS SIDE UP”.

May your house move be a great move.
