Most us know how difficult it is to move house, especially if you are doing all of the packing and house moving your self. By the time you have finished moving and cleaned the house you were living in, then unpacked at the new house you can expect to feel very tired. It seems to take another 2 to 3 weeks to actually get over the move, and that is if you've been very well-organized.
Here are some of my house moving tips to help you be extremely organized, so that moving can be a much easier process for you and your family. If you can afford to hire someone to do this for you, then you will find it much easier and it is the way to go. However, my tips will help you even if you do pay for a removalist, as this can be difficult if you do not get the best available.
1: Use a calendar to plan which rooms you will pack, and what date you will do them on.
2: Delegate tasks to all members of the family, so they know what they need to do, and what timeframe they need to have it done in.
3: Previous to moving, make sure that your whole house has been de-cluttered, so that you are not moving house things that will end up in the rubbish later.
4: Pack a suitcase for each member of the family, similar to if they are going on holiday for a few days. This great idea means that each person will have what they need for the few days after you move without having to go through boxes.
5: Keep each box to a liftable weight, even if you have to add things that do not go in the same place.
6: Make sure you mark the top of each box clearly with the room it needs to be unpacked in.
