3 Tips for a Stress-Free Move


After the excitement of buying a house the last thing you want is to be stressed out when moving day arrives. With so many other things to think about, why not take advantage of the removal services that are available, to give yourself peace of mind that your belongings will arrive in one piece. Here, we at McKellar & Sons provide you with 3 top tips for a stress free move.

Tip 1: Book Time Off

We all lead busy lives and nothing changes unless you make the time. If you work a full time job then there is physically not enough hours in the day to continue working, start packing, finish cleaning as well as have time to rest. Make sure you give yourself more hours in the day by booking time off and allowing you to get everything in order and leaving the house confident nothing has been left behind.

Tip 2: Pack in Advance:

It seems obvious but many people put off packing because of it being such a mammoth task; after all it’s your whole life in a few boxes. But leaving this daunting task to the last minute can actually cause far more stress not just for you, but for everyone involved. If you have children’s toys to gather up, fridges to clear out and a shed to de-clutter, there is only so much that can be done on moving day.

Tip 3: Recruit Help:

The classic response when people find out your moving is ‘Yes, we’ll help’, but in reality it’s less all-hands-on-deck and more-all-phones-are-off. To ensure you get the help you need on the day, recruit help from a reliable source such as a removals company. As the professionals they know how to get you packed up and on your way swiftly and conveniently and with the heavier objects creating a little more than tension between you and loved ones, leave it in the hands of the experts.
