If you are in the minority of people who for some reason never had to move house, then consider yourself lucky. It’s usually rather unpleasant, not to mention time-consuming. Although, despite it not being the most enjoyable thing in the world, it is nowhere near as hard as some make it out to be. The biggest obstacle is probably the initial mental barrier which one has to overcome to actually start moving everything over. Of course, depending on the distance between your current house and your next house, it the biggest obstacle might be moving all your things across to their new destination, but we’ll get onto that in a bit. If you feel like you have a lot of trouble moving house, and you want the process to be nowhere near as bad as it used to be, or as some people make it out to be, then keep reading. Let’s briefly look at some ways in which you can make the transition between houses run a lot smoother, not to mention, with much less stress involved for both you and the rest of the family.

Be prepared

Planning things in advance can be the best thing you can do in this case. The worst possible scenario is leaving things until the last minute and suddenly finding more and more things you have to do, or more and more things you have to pack. Try to give yourself a week or so to start packing, preparing things to be packed, and to book some time off from your job to get this over and done with.

Think of a route between the two locations

The difficulty of this part depends entirely on where you are moving so there is no objective best way of going around things. However, there are a few things you can look at to determine the best course of action.

  • See if you can get a friend to help you move. Try and give them some concrete dates for the time of the move, and hopefully, they will be able to get some time off.
  • If you don’t have anyone available to help, getting a company which handles removals works just fine. If you want to see how much it would cost you, you can even get a free quote from some company’s websites.
  • No matter the distance, if you have a decent connection between the two places via public transport, you might be able to get away with doing a few round trips rather than having someone drive you back and forth.

Be smart with your packing

In order to save yourself the pain of having to sift through seemingly endless amounts of things which you don’t even really need but you felt the need to take it with you anyway, pack away all of that useless clutter first. If you stash it away in boxes before the more essential everyday items which you actually use, you will have a much easier time unearthing them as they will probably end up somewhere near the top of the pile instead. Reading up some packing tips before you get started wouldn’t hurt either.

Get rid of some things while you’re at it

When packing everything at home, why not go ahead and look through your things if you’re already having to move everything? Instead of putting everything in boxes to move to your new house, put some in a separate box which would either be for sale, or maybe for charity. You get rid of some clutter, make some money, and someone possibly gets something useful. It’s a win-win-win situation.
