Stop procrastinating!

As soon as the move is finalised and even before, don’t keep deferring packing until another day. Start slowly but get it going. This will stop you reaching moving day racing around looking for bubble wrap and cardboard boxes adding unnecessary stress.

Create a checklist

Checklists and budgets help keep everything in order. Use a checklist from step one so that you tick off everything on your to-do list. This will help you understand what is completed and what needs your attention.

Forget the unnecessary

We all have that one draw in our homes full of things we hoard, sometimes this can grow leaving your home full of unnecessary items.

Take this opportunity to get rid of the things that you do not need.


If you have things that you do not want to bring with you but also, don’t want to part with yet, there are short and long term storage options.


Sandwichs, mugs, tea/coffee, kettle etc. all these essentials should be boxed and moved last. Once you reach your new home you can grab this box first and keep your workforce of movers refreshed reducing the risk of accidental damage occurring as you become tired. Any remote controls, phones, cables, mobile phone chargers and any other essential items you are likely to lose keep in a electronics box.

Separate the work

A room by room approach is better than starting randomly. This will help you keep everything sorted when it comes to setting up your new place too.

Donate to charity

As we begin to decluttering our homes preparing for moving day you may find clothing, electronics and other unwanted items that have not been touched in weeks, months or even years. Instead of taking unwanted items to your new home and filling up wasted space, the solution is simple – donate to charity. Zero waste to landfill is our goal at NWWC so we always suggest finding your local charity and help to donate, reuse, recycle.

Label everything right

Grab a marker pen and label each box e.g. “Warren’s Office”, this will speed up the moving process as the movers will know exactly where the box needs to be instead of putting the box in the wrong room. You will also know roughly where every item is, instead of fishing through box after box looking for that one item.

Use quality boxes

Use good quality boxes and do not overpack these. Professionals usually provide packing boxes. So check this when choosing your moving company.Use cheap boxes and don’t be surprised to discover breakages when you unpack, it’s stressful enough moving house without worrying whether your possessions have correct protection.

Go by category

Even if you start packing in multiple places, try to keep things sorted by category. It will just make your life easier.

Look for a good professional company

Look for a professional company that will help you with the move. Loading items and transporting your valuables safety so you know your valuables are in safe hands.
