Top Tips When Moving Home During Spring

Everyone talks about having a spring clean, it’s all about getting rid of the old and in with the new, so why not take that a step further have a spring move? Moving home is the perfect way to get rid of all of the items you no longer need and start moving forward with the things you do. We here at McKellar & Sons Removals have come up with a few tips to help you make the most out of your spring move.


First things first you need to start sorting through all of your belongings and putting aside the items you no longer need. There is no point in packing and taking them to your new home, only to have to unpack and find a place to store them. Sell, give to charity or get rid of things you no longer need to free up some space and de-clutter, you could even make a bit of extra money to go towards your new home.

Start Early

Now we’re not saying pack everything, but the items you know won’t be used between now and the move can definitely be packed. Winter clothes, toys that children play with the least, sports equipment, garden furniture, books and anything else that you may not use between now and your move. The closer you get to moving the more items you can start to pack, when it comes to a week before, the majority of your belongings should be packed with a few clothes for you and your family to wear, toiletries, a few toys to keep children occupied and generally just the basic items you need to get you by.

Ask For Help

There is nothing wrong with asking for help when it comes to moving, it can often be extremely difficult to juggle the stress of moving, trying not to forget anything, children and pets. Ask a friend or family member to look after children or pets on moving day or the lead up to it, as the area can often be dangerous with so many items and boxes lying around. The hustle and bustle can often leave them feeling scared and vulnerable and the last thing you want to be doing is consoling them when you need to be focused.
