We all, at some point or another, have to move home. Some move a lot, others will move just once in their life, and if you’re in the latter category, it’s likely that you’ll make common moving mistakes.

To help ensure that you avoid them and enjoy a nice, smooth move, we’ve put together five tips.

Not taking measurements – You must make sure that you measure the space in your new property for furniture. You don’t want to manoeuvre couches and wardrobes into your new home only to find that they don’t fit.

Make use of a tape measure!

Not bothering to label – When moving, you’re going to find that all of your belongings are scattered about in boxes. Which is fine for transporting them, but when unpacking it can be a real nightmare to find the stuff you need.

That is, unless you label each box. So, if you’ve unpacked the bathroom into one box, label it ‘bathroom’. It’ll make unpacking a whole lot easier. Not to mention quicker.

Buying cheap packaging – If you’re looking to save some money, you may think buying cheaper boxes to transport your goods is a wise idea. Trust us when we say, it isn’t.

You need to make sure that your belongings are safe in transport, and the only way to do that is to purchase sturdy boxes, plenty of bubble wrap, and some air pillows. Much better to be safe rather than sorry.

Doing it on your own – If you’re moving into a property on your own, you may think you can orchestrate the whole move solo. We don’t recommend trying it. Moving is stressful. There’s a lot to think about. Don’t try and balance everything without some help.

Not filing paperwork – You undoubtedly have a ton of paperwork that needs to go with you on the move, but all that paper work is scattered throughout your home. Spend an afternoon getting it all together and filing it away for moving day.

Sure, moving day can be really, really stressful. But if you take your time and avoid these five common mistakes you’ll be fine.

Good luck!
