Moving Tips and Frequently Asked Questions

Moving to you a new home can be stressful and tiring experience for everybody involved. Things get forgotten about or left to the last minute. There are plenty of things that you will need to remember to do when it comes to moving out of an old and home and into a new one.

Fortunately we’ve come up with with some quick helpful tips to help the whole experience go smoothly.


  • Pack early. The sooner you get the packing done the less stress you will have on moving day.
  • Stay organised – Having a list of things that needs to be packed away helps.
  • Make sure you allow plenty of time for all jobs.
  • Keep a note of what day your removal van will be arriving.

Packing and labeling

  • Label all boxes so you do not get confused by contents per box.
  • Pack one room at a time – Completing a room one by one helps you stay organised and helps you locate which moving box belongs to which room.
  • Do not exceed around 30 pounds per box, this is vital as it can make the box too heavy and cause potential injury.
  • Dispose of hazardous materials.
  • Make sure you have a generous supply of packaging tape, scissors, markers and labels

Moving out

  • Switch your utilities : Make sure all your bills and personal mail are moved to your new address.
  • Research your new area so you find it easily and can not get lost.
  • Insurance : Have you organised contents insurance for your belongings?
  • Defrost your refrigerator in time for moving day.
  • Dispose of unwanted items

Moving in

  • Consider pest control : Its always best to pest-proof your new home if you have children or people with allergies.
  • Inspect your belongings. The last thing you want to do is have your valuables go missing after you have moved to a new location.
  • Say hi to your new neighbours (obviously not essential, but its always good to meet people you live nearby).
  • Explore your local area!
