What needs to be Done When Moving House?

Packing up and moving your entire life can be a daunting task. It’s not just the physical act of packing up all of your belongings that takes time. It’s also figuring out how to pack them, where to store them while you’re in transit, how to get everything into the new place when you arrive, and finally unpacking it all. Moving day is often stressful enough without any added complications. So what needs to be done when moving house? AB Castle have made an easy read blog to inform you. AB Castle is a removals company offering our removal services in Sheffield and surrounding areas.

Make a list of what needs to be done

It’s important to prepare for your move so that you know what you’re getting into. Also so you have the time to do everything you need to do before moving day. Reason through everything that needs to be done-from packing up your stuff to figuring out where you’re going to store it pre-move. You should even think about how much time you’ll spend at the new place unpacking-in order not to be surprised by anything on moving day. Take the time to make a complete, exhaustive list of all the things that need to happen before moving day arrives. It can take some time but will make life easier in the long run! Starting to pack early is always better for you and your removals company.

Get quotes from movers

It’s important that you get a quote from a reputable removals company before you begin packing. This will give you an understanding of roughly how long your move is going to take. As well as what it’s going to cost you. Ask friends and family members for recommendations on removals companies they’ve used in the past, and see if they can fit into your budget. There are many removal companies that offer a free quote service to help you out. We recommend taking advantage of this so you can get the cheapest quote.

Pack your clothes and other personal belongings

The first thing you should do is pack your clothes and any other personal belongings. Clothes are the easiest to pack-you just fold them up and put them in a box or a bag. If you want to hang things like shirts, dresses, or pants, then use hangers or buy some cheap ones at your local store beforehand.

You’ll also need to pack up all of the toiletries; if they’re not already in bottles suitably sized for packing, it’s time to buy some! Keep in mind that fragile items like glasses might break during your move, so make sure you pack them in bubble wrap. If you don’t have bubble wrap, there are many other materials that can protect your fragile items.

Hire a professional cleaner for the day you move out

It’s important to have your new place ready for you when you arrive, so hire a cleaner to tidy up before hand. You can find cleaners either by word of mouth or by doing some research online; make sure they are insured and licensed! This way, on moving day you can put your time towards unpacking and enjoying your new abode.

Make plans to store your stuff pre-move

If you’re not able to store everything at home before you move, then it is really worth considering temporary storage options like lockers or self-storage units. These spaces are usually very affordable (you can rent them on daily, weekly, monthly or yearly basis) and you can store your things on a temporary basis, or for as long as you need to.

Pre-arrange your belongings

Its important to arrange all of your furniture in your new home before you move in. You can do this by drawing it or have the idea in your head for each room. This will help you in the long run as you won’t have the hassle of moving your furniture around on moving day. Therefore, this is saving time for you and your removal company.


If you want to make sure your move is as efficient and stress-free as possible, it’s important that you take the time to plan ahead. You’ll need to pack up all of your clothes and personal belongings beforehand; if not, they may get lost or damaged in transit. If there are any furniture pieces that will be difficult for movers to handle on their own (like a piano), then arrange them before moving day so you know where everything goes without having to guess! Lastly, spend some time with friends and family during this exciting moment of change – they’re going through it too!
