Tips & tricks for an efficient house move

Updated: Jan 29, 2021

Moving is certainly a stressful endeavor. Having to go through basically everything you own and then wrap, box and transport it to a new home can be quite overwhelming. Even so, you can tackle a move head-first and make it more efficient with a couple of tips & tricks we’ve gathered below.

Get organized and plan ahead

Easier said than done, but if the move has been a long time coming, you can take advantage of this and outline a clear moving plan. Use a moving checklist. Purchase and gather any materials or services that will assist you in the process and make the move more efficient - such as booking a moving service, buying tape and labels, procuring moving boxes, etc.

Set up a labeling system

To be really efficient when moving, it’s important to label storage boxes not only by the room they came from but also by priority or which should be the last ones on the car you are using for moving and first off. You will definitely need some belongings to use for the last days before moving and in the first days at the new home. This will help you find important items quickly and ease the unpacking process.

Snap pictures of complicated setups

A very good idea is to take photos of everything that requires a more complex setup or assembly. Either it’s a display cabinet you would like to keep the same, or the cable connections for electronics, photos will help you reassemble and reconnect everything faster and easier at the new house.

Make an inventory of everything

Needless to say, having a clear inventory of every box you have packed, will ensure you can account for all your possessions after a move. Be sure to also check if the number of boxes uploaded matches the unloaded one.
