Two tips for people who find moving house very stressful

Moving with horses

Our horses are such an important part of our lifestyle and our family. We are moving next year for my husband's work and one of the most stressful aspects is organising the horse transport. We've done this before and it always turns out okay, but it doesn't make the next time any easier. We can replace our furniture if it gets lost or broken, but our horses are part of our family. This blog is all about organising large animal transport across state lines and has a range of tips to make the process as not stressful as possible for both the animals and the owners.


Two tips for people who find moving house very stressful

If you are moving house soon and are concerned about how stressful this experience is going to be, here are a few tips that should help to make the moving process a little less mentally and emotionally taxing.

Hire some professional removalists

If you want to keep your stress levels as low as possible throughout the moving process, you should consider hiring some residential removalists to help you.

Having a team of highly efficient, skilled removalists by your side will drastically increase the speed with which your belongings are transported to your new home (as the removalists will have a van which is large enough to transport all of your belongings in one trip) and will also minimise the risk of any of your possessions sustaining damage (as experienced residential removalists know exactly how to handle and transport fragile goods without breaking them).

As such, if you hire professionals of this kind, you won't have to worry about having to carry heavy boxes by yourself or have to stress out about the possibility of accidentally dropping and subsequently breaking boxes full of fragile items. Furthermore, you won't have to endure multiple road journeys to and from your new property in order to move all of your possessions.

Fill a box with some first-day essentials

When you finally arrive at your new home, you will be faced with a sea of boxes and furniture, all of which will need to be sorted through, unpacked and organised.

This can be incredibly overwhelming and stress-inducing, particularly after you have already spent an entire day transporting your possessions to the new property.

One way to make this part of the moving process easier is to prepare a box of 'essentials' that you will need during the first 24 hours of being in your new home. This will spare you from the hassle of having to rummage through dozens of boxes when searching for basic, everyday items.

This box should contain the following; a torch (in case some of the light bulbs have blown or are missing in any of the rooms in the new property), a toolkit (so you can put together any flat-pack furniture you have bought and hang shelves), cleaning supplies (to sanitise the bathroom and kitchen) and a pair of scissors or a utility knife (so that you can easily open up your sealed cardboard boxes).

You should also put any prescription medication that you need to take on a daily basis into this box, as well as some toilet roll, soap, a first-aid kit and your phone charger.
