Tips For a Stress-Free Moving Day!

It can be both exhilarating and stressful to move into a new house. Here are some tips to help the move go more smoothly:

Create a plan

Make a list of everything you need to do before moving day. Changing your address, transferring utilities, hiring a moving company, and packing all fall under this category.


Moving is the perfect time to cleanse and get rid of things you don't need. Anything that is not usable should be thrown away, and anything that is in good condition should be donated or sold.

Clearly label boxes

Label each box you pack with the room it belongs in as well as the contents. When you get to your new house, this will make things simpler to unpack.

Create an essentials box

Pack a box with essentials you will need during the first few days in your new home, until you have time to fully unpack. This may include toiletries, a change of clothes, and basic cooking supplies. Don’t forget your furry friend’s essentials too, like food and bedding.

Take photos of your old home

Before you leave your old home, take photos of each room. This will help you remember how everything was set up, which can be helpful when you are unpacking in your new home.

Hire a removalist

If you are hiring a moving company, do your research and choose a reputable company. Read reviews and ask for recommendations from friends and family.

Update your address

Make sure to update your address with the post office, banks, credit card companies, and other essential organisations.

Set up utilities

Make sure to set up utilities like electricity, gas, water, and internet before you move in.

Meet your neighbours

Take the time to introduce yourself to your new neighbours. They will have local knowledge on popular places to eat and shop.

But most of all take time to relax and enjoy your new surrounds. Spend a few days familiarising yourself with your new home and unpack at your own pace.
