Packing Hacks For Moving House In Peterborough​

In this blog post we have put together some of our favourite packing hacks for moving house in Peterborough. We have lots of experience helping our customers move house so we want to share some top moving house packing hacks with you to make your packing easier!  Have a look through the hacks and see what you think. If you need any packing materials or help with your move, just drop our friendly team a message! Attach & Label Wires and electronic items will get mixed up. Make sure you put the electronic item in the same bag as the wire. We would recommend coiling the wire around the item. Grab some masking tape to stick it down and then write the name of the appliance on the tape. This way, if they do get separated you’ll still know what item the wire belongs to. Important Stuff Have a separate box for important stuff. This should include passports, marriage certificates, birth certificates, moving documents and more. Make sure you keep these important items somewhere safe and clearly labelled. It’s easier to replace a mis-placed bedside lamp than a passport or marriage certificate. Essentials Bag Have a bag for the essential items. This includes things like a phone charger, toothpaste and toothbrush, hair brush. The things that you always forget to take on holiday at the last minute are the things that need to be made a note of. Double and triple check these essential items are packed, make sure they are somewhere easy to find after a long day moving. Heavy and Small Use smaller boxes for heavier items. For example, books! Lots of smaller boxes of heavier items will be easier to transport than one or two large boxes of heavier items. Make sure when you are stacking and labelling your boxes you clearly make them as heavy. This way they can be loaded into the van under lighter items to avoid any damage. Labelling boxes as heavy will help avoid injury to you too. Cable Packing We all have lots of cables around the house. Toilet roll tubes are great for cables. Make sure you clearly write on the toilet roll what the cable is for. This way the cables will be nicely organised when you start unpacking in your new home, and you’ll know what goes where. Toiletry Packing Take off the lids of your toiletries and place a cling film or a bag over the opening and replace the lid. This packing hack will help reduce the risk of these items spilling or leaking during your move. We would also recommend placing some cotton wool on top of your make up items, under the lid. This will help reduce the risk of any breakages to your powder make up items.These are just some of our many packing hacks for moving house in Peterborough. If you need any help with packing or moving house – just give us a call!​

Top Tips To Make Your House Move Easier​

There is no getting around it. We will all have to move house at some point in our lives. It is rumoured to be among the most stressful things in a person’s life, along with death, marriage and divorce! Moving house can be hard work, but there are ways that you can make your house move in Peterborough easier. With many years managing house removals in Peterborough, we have lots of experience. We would like to share just some of our many top tips to make your house move easier in this blog post. Moving house may still be stressful, but it will be a lot easier if you follow these tips. Get Organised People moving house will often have about 4-8 weeks notice of their moving date. This gives you time to get organised. Don’t leave it all until the last minute. Think about contacting your utility companies and changing your address. Will you be taking all your furniture with you? If not, what are you doing with your furniture? There are lots of things to consider when moving house and this is just one reason you can’t leave it until the last minute. Unwanted Items When you are moving house it is a great opportunity to de-clutter and clear out those unwanted items. We all hoard things over time, some of us hoard more things than others. If you have something in your home you haven’t used or looked at for years, is there any point taking it to your new home? You will be saving yourself time and money but getting rid of these unwanted items. You could have a garden sale, go to the local car boot sale, drop it at the charity shop, sell it on line or hire a skip.  Get Packing Challenge yourself to pack a set amount a week. If you have 5 rooms in your house and 5 weeks to the moving date then challenge yourself to pack one room a week. Try and start with the rooms that are used the least. It is important that you leave out the essential items such as medicines, toiletries and the kettle! Think about packing items too. You’ll need boxes, tape, bubble wrap and more. We can supply you with all the packaging materials you need – just drop us a line. Movers or DIY Moving You can hire a self-drive van from us, but if you’re looking to make your house move easier, why not call in the experts? Our removal specialists can load all your belongings safely into the van, drive them to your new home and put them in the rooms you choose. This is ideal if you have pets, kids or have mobility issues. A professional mover in Peterborough, like our team, will take all the physical stress and hard work of moving away from you. If you’d like to hear more of our top tips please check out the website, our other blog posts or contact the team directly.
