Are you moving home soon? If so, you're probably wondering how on earth you're going to get everything done in time. Don't worry – we've got you covered! In this blog post, we'll share some tips on how to make moving easier. Follow these tips and you'll be able to move home with ease.

#1: Get organised

The first step in making moving easier is to get organised. Start by making a list of everything you need to do and then allocate a deadline for each task. This will help keep you on track and ensure that nothing is forgotten.

#2: Plan ahead

The more organised you are, the smoother your move will go. Start planning ahead as early as possible so you have plenty of time to get everything done.

#3: Get plenty of rest

This is one tip that's often forgotten about, but it's important nonetheless. Moving can be tiring, so make sure you get plenty of rest in the days leading up to your move. This will help ensure you're feeling fresh and ready for action on moving day.

#4: Label your boxes

When packing up your belongings, make sure to label each box with a list of its contents. Labelling your boxes makes unpacking so much easier - especially if you have a specific place for each item in your new home.  

#5: Take breaks

Moving is tiring work, so be sure to take regular breaks throughout the day. This will help keep you refreshed and motivated for the tasks at hand, so make sure you get plenty of rest in the days leading up to your move. This will help ensure you're feeling fresh and positive.

#6: Invest in items that will make the day go smoother

There are a few items that can make moving day go a lot smoother. Invest in some packing tape, boxes and bubble wrap to help protect your belongings during transit. You might also want to consider hiring a moving company to take care of all the heavy lifting for you. This will save you time and energy on the big day. 

#7: Purchase a strong reusable mattress bag with many handles

Mattress bags are a must-have for any mattress you're taking with you on your move. Not only does it keep the mattress clean and protected, but it can also help to avoid those pesky bed bugs. If you buy one with a range of comfortable handles, you’ll also find it so much easier without hurting your back.

#8: Lift heavy items properly to not damage your back

Lifting heavy items incorrectly is one of the leading causes of back pain. Use your legs to lift and be sure to keep your back straight. If you can't lift something on your own, ask a friend or family member for help.

#9: Get rid of anything you don't need

The less stuff you have to move, the better. Go through your belongings and get rid of anything you don't need or want anymore. You can donate these items to charity, or sell them online or at a garage sale.

#10: Prepare to celebrate

As you move on to the next chapter in life, don't forget to mark the occasion with a celebration, and if relevant, some reflection. It doesn't matter how you celebrate or how big or small the occasion is. Just celebrate. In your own way.
