Moving House in Oxford | Tips to make it Stress-Free

Moving can be just as exciting as it can be stressful, that’s why it is very important to get organised and prepare everything ahead of time. Even though moving all the stuff from one house to another seems like an impossible task, when you divide all the tasks into bite-sized pieces it can also be a walk in the park. Following these tips will make you wonder why you were even stressed in the first place.

Tips And Tricks For a Stress-Free Move 

Declutter Your Space And Throw The Unnecessary Stuff Away

In order to make moving a pleasant experience and also to avoid clutter in your new home, it would be a good idea to sort out the stuff you have in your old home and throw away anything you haven’t used in more than six months depending on the time of the year, for example, old clothes that you keep just because you think you might wear them someday. 

Other things that may take too much space in your new house might be old bedding, towels, magazines, half-empty bottles of shampoo, hairspray, creams etc (if they weren’t being used). Throwing the unnecessary stuff away will help you get a clearer picture of the stuff that you actually need to move and it will also help you get a fresh start in your new home.

Organise And Prepare

First of all, it would be a good idea to make a to-do list with specific things that need to be prepared for the move, like booking the date with a Bellview Transport removals, sorting the admin stuff out, packing everything up and preparing. Depending on how many rooms you have in your old home and how many rooms you will have in your new home, label the boxes accordingly. 

It would be best to sort all the boxes with kitchenware together, all the boxes with things for the living room together etc. This way you will have way less work when you do move and won’t have to spend too much time searching through the boxes. 

Another thing to remember would be to secure all the fragile items you have and put it all together in one box, so you would know exactly which box it is and can inform the movers to be careful. 

The Day of The Move

The best thing to do would be to move as early in the day as possible, so you can relax the rest of the day and enjoy your new space. Be sure to pack a bag with everything you might need as soon as you move into your new home, like clean clothes, a toothbrush and all necessities like bedding, glasses, plates etc., so you don’t need to go through all the boxes to find what you need, before completely unpacking and settling in.
