Things to Organise When Moving House

Although moving into a new home is exciting, it is also very stressful because there are so many things to do when moving house. According to research, selling a property is almost as stressful as going through a divorce! This doesn’t sound very promising, but the good news is that there are several things that you can do to make the process run smoothly. Here is the ultimate moving house checklist.

Plan Ahead

If you attempt to do everything at the last minute, you are going to give yourself extra stress that you don’t need. If you know that you need to leave in two months time, don’t wait until one week before the move to start packing. Start getting things in order as soon as the sale has gone through. Start purchasing boxes, throwing out or selling the things that you know you don’t need. Write down everything you need to do and get things done slowly over the months so that when the last week arrives, you literally only have to pack your things in a van and go.

Moving Budget

Moving home is not cheap, you are going to have to spend money on moving materials, vans etc. So make sure that you find out the cost of moving house, create a budget and stick to it.

Redirect Your Mail

Inform the postal service of the date you’ll be moving and provide them with your new address. You will need to do this at least a week before you move to make sure that you receive your mail.

Home Insurance

You want to make sure that your home is covered with building and contents insurance from the day you move in. If you have insurance on your old property, make sure that you get it transferred over.


If you want to buy new furniture and carpets for you new home, make sure that you order them in plenty of time and that delivery dates coincide with the day you are moving in to your new home. Items such as beds, a sofa and curtains should be on top of the list.

Pack Strategically

Don’t make the mistake of throwing everything into boxes so that you can pack as quickly as possible. Pack kitchen items in separate boxes to bedroom and bathroom items. Label each box so that you know what’s in it and where it needs to go.
