Important Things To Add To Your Moving Home Checklist

There is no doubt about it that moving home is up there as one of the most stressful things you can do in life, if you have moved home more than once or twice you may hear yourself saying “never again“. To make life easier though, there are some things that you can do to ensure that you aren’t too stressed at the end of it all, and can happily enjoy your new home without too much hassle. This article will detail just a few of those  that will make sure you are less stressed, and much happier than you would be otherwise.


It seems obvious, but it is something that many people forget about and unfortunately can cause a great deal of confusion, and time wasted in your new home. If you are certain that you are packing everything in the right boxes in your home, and that you are sure where they need to go, then labelling the boxes as such means that you won’t need to be opening boxes to see what’s inside once they are moved. This is a common mistake and one that you don’t make more than once. Of course, the local removal company you’ve chosen should help you with this, but keep it in mind will help you avoid mistakes.


There are options when it comes to moving your furniture and precious belongings. But hiring a removals company is always going to be a far better way of reducing your stress levels, than trying to hire and load a van yourself. Whether you’re looking for removals in Manchester or removals to Spain, companies such as Twilley & Son Removals are experts in knowing exactly how many loads are needed, how to fit everything into the van, and how to unload it professionally the other end. 

Removals companies have experience that you simply don’t, and can take the pressure away from this aspect of your move. It isn’t always straightforward, but when you know what potential disasters lie ahead you can plan for them. People like students benefit greatly from student removals as the stress of moving is reduced leaving you to be able to focus on studying.


There is no point moving junk from one house to another, so often people opt to hire a skip and throw everything away that they no longer need. It’s always a good idea to start this as soon as you know that you are moving, to give yourself plenty of time and space to be able to succeed. 

Going through everything that you have in your attics or basement is going to help you avoid extra boxes and bags of “stuff“ that you don’t need anymore being transported unnecessarily. There are plenty of options on how to rehome items that are too good to throw away, such as Facebook Marketplace and Gumtree, but making a start on this as soon as possible is certainly a good idea.

Moving home should be an exciting and positive experience, and if you get it right it can be. So making sure that you know everything that you need to know and are one organised can help you feel, and experience a smoother transition.
