MOVING house can be a stressful time, so weve put together some useful tips to help make your journey as smooth as possible.

4-8 weeks before you move




2 weeks before you move

2 days before you move

A couple of days before you move, make up a box of essential items for the first few days at your new home and pack an overnight bag. Include things like scissors, toilet roll, cleaning products, kettle, tea bags, some basic crockery, cutlery and a cork screw. 

Pack your valuables and documents separately and keep them somewhere safe, defrost your freezer and take photos of your electronics before you disconnect them to save you time when you reassemble them. Now just arrange a time to collect keys from your estate agent!

1 day before you move

The day before you move, finish all your packing and label boxes with which room they will be going in and also do a final job of checking the cupboards, basements, lofts and garden sheds to make sure nothing gets left behind.

Once you've moved


Finally, relax and enjoy your new home!
