You have no items in your basket!
Moving house can often be a stressful life event with a never-ending mountain of packing boxes and do-to lists. That’s why we’ve put together our top tips and tricks for getting you prepared for your big move.
1. Get organised with a list
Moving house can be overwhelming with a million and one tasks to keep track of AND trying to stay on top of your day-to-day life. So, what’s the easiest way to stay organised and on top of it all? Make a list and think about your timeline now. It might seem like weeks away, but it’s better to be prepared sooner than waiting until the week before you move.
2. Declutter your belongings
Keeping on top of decluttering is key to preparing for a house move. A few weeks before the move, start your decluttering and decide what you want to sell, donate or throw away.
A good starting point will be rooms that you use least often, get these ticked off your list then you’re in a good flow to move on to the everyday rooms.
Remember to be ruthless when it comes to your decluttering. Not used that inflatable chair in the attic for over 3 years? Give it to the charity shop!
3. Smart packing
There are a few simple tricks you can do to make packing a whole lot easier for yourself. Investing in quality packing material is a must and will go a long way when it comes to moving your belongings safely from A to B.
Start early by packing away the items you don’t frequently use. Then, think about your daily essentials and make sure you have easy access to your everyday items such as toiletries, plates and mobile chargers. Pack these items separately in a distinctive box so when you get to the new house you’ll know exactly where they are. Also, label each box with the room it needs to go to. This will make things easier on moving day.
4. Dedicate time to each room
Each room in your house requires different time, tools and attention. Being prepared and organised for what needs to be done in each room, will save you time and stress. Focus on 1 room at a time. Before the packing commences have a quick tidy-up so that everything is in its right place, making it easier to then group items together, and packing quicker! Giving each room a good clean ready for its new owners, will make their move easier. The Vileda Steam Mop removes 99.9% of bacteria* and will give you a deep down clean of hard floor surfaces.
5. Get the new house cleaned
Before moving all your belongings into your new home, put some time aside to clean, paint and fix anything before moving day.
If you can manage to arrange some overlap from getting the keys to your new house and leaving your old place, it can make a big difference. It will give you the chance to organise the new space and give it a good clean before you move everything in.
Cleaning around empty space will be a lot easier than cleaning around a mountain of packing boxes. It also means as soon as you’re in and unpacked you can relax.
On moving day, make sure all your cleaning supplies are stored away in a separate, easy-to-find box. We would recommend the Vileda DuActiva Broom to collect any built-up dust in one easy sweep. Then just use your Vileda 1-2 Spray Mop for a final quick and easy clean without the need of a bucket.
