Top 3 Moving Day Mistakes & How to Avoid Them

If you’ve moved home before, you’ll already be aware of how stressful a moving day can be. Organisation is the key when it comes to a stress-free move but that’s often easier said than done! If you want your move to run smoothly, it’s essential that you do your research, plan effectively and most importantly, learn from the mistakes of others!

Here at Jeakins Removals, we specialise in domestic removals and our years of experience puts us in the perfect position to help you make your move as simple and stress-free as possible. So, let’s take a look at the top 3 moving day mistakes and how to avoid them:

1.    Poorly Planned Packing

Ah, the joys of packing! It’s not the most exciting part of moving home and it’s no surprise that many of us get our packing done as quickly as possible without thinking about the later consequences. Planning your packing effectively and clearly labelling or colour coding your boxes will make it easier to place belongings in the right rooms and reduce unpacking time significantly. REMEMBER: don’t pack too much into one box. The boxes will be very difficult to move and may even break!

2.    Choosing An Unreliable or Inexperienced Moving Company

If you’re hoping for a successful move then there is nothing more important than your removals company! An inexperienced or unreliable moving company can result in absolute disaster! Always check a removals company’s credentials and experience before making your choice.

3.    Trying Too Much In One Go

It’s tempting to try to move everything you own in one go and that’s where a lot of movers run into trouble. The more items you’re moving, the more likely it is that things will begin to run behind schedule or go wrong altogether. Why not think about putting some of the more seldom-used items into short-term storage and moving them a later date when you’re more settled in your new home?
