It takes time to pack your belongings away but with the right guidance it doesn’t have to be stressful. Here are our top tips which means you will have your house packed up in no time!

Pack Early

The earlier you start packing the better, It will take time to pack up your house. it all depends on how much stuff and how many rooms you have. We usually recommend for a large house two months should be enough if you pack one box a day. For smaller homes, one month should be enough.


Give your unwanted items to charity, sell them on eBay or go to a car boot. Take inspiration from Marie Kondo; there is no point spending time and money moving items that will simply sit in cupboards and won’t get used.

Start With Rooms You Least Need

Pack items you don’t use on a daily basis first. Seasonal items you’re not currently using such a garden tools, coats and Christmas lights.

Pack One Room At A Time

This is one of the most important packing tips and often gets neglected. Doing this will help you stay organised and also makes it easier when unloading at the other end as you will know where all the boxes go.

Don’t overweight Boxes

You might cause injury with overloaded boxes or the boxes simply might not be able to withstand the weight. Pack light items in large boxes and heavy items in small boxes.

Fill Empty Gaps

Use old newspapers, packing papers or even old clothes to fill gaps in between items in boxes. This will help secure the items for the journey to your new home.

Label Your Boxes

Write the contents of each box with a marker. Write on the side of the boxes and not on the top so you can easily see the messages if they boxes are stacked. It is also advisable to use a different colour for every room.

Put Heavy Boxes On The Bottom

By putting your heavy boxes underneath the lighter boxes, you ensure no breakable items will get crushed during the move.

Prepare A Box Of Essentials

This box can be full of items that you will need on the day of the move. This for example can be your toaster, kettle, a set of cutlery, cups, medicines, clothes you will wear on the day etc. Anything that you will need access to on the day of the move that, this will save you trying to find what you need and having to unpack and repack boxes in the process!
