Get Some Order To Your Home Moving Boxes

Moving house is a massive undertaking, so it makes sense to start preparing well in advance. Writing out a plan and schedule for your relocation will reduce the stress involved for three reasons.

First, it gives you a chance to think through the process and be assured you are not overlooking any details. Second, you know what will happen, making the whole process feel less unpredictable. Third, by starting to organise things well in advance, you won’t be trying to juggle everything at once under pressure. Post your written plan in a place where you see it often and can update it as you complete each task. So how and when you should start?

Hopefully, you will know a few months in advance when you will be moving. Two months ahead of your moving date, you should arrange to transfer, cancel and set up your utilities such as electricity and telecommunications. You should also notify your insurance carriers, and research your options for ensuring your belongings during the move.

You can update your telly licence details online, so that can wait. If you have pets, update your details with their microchip company and let them know when you are moving a couple of weeks before you go. About a month before you move, contact the National Drivers License Service with documentation of your new address, and complete the section for address changes on your vehicle registration certificate and send it off.

What to Pack First When You Move

Some items you will need right up the last minute, but most homes are full of things we use rarely.

  • Christmas and other seasonal decorations are very important and sentimental, but due to their seasonality, they can also be the first thing to start packing into home moving boxes.
  • Out-of-season clothing and bedding can also be sorted some time in advance. A single Buska crate can hold up to 15 jumpers and winter coats, or close to 60 t-shirts.
  • If you have dishes or pans that you only use for large gatherings or special occasions, you can pack those up too. As these are fragile items, sturdy plastic moving boxes can be a great help in making sure they arrive safely to its destination.
  • Many people like to stock up on tinned foods and boxed foods that will stay good for years. Packing up some of those ahead of time will make the last days in your home easier.
  • Children’s bedrooms can be a treasure-chest of sentimental things they have outgrown. Unless it upsets your children, pack up these treasures ahead of time. If they take comfort in having them around, you can leave the packed moving boxes in their rooms until the time of the move.
  • Packing up ornaments, photos and other decorative items a couple of months before your move will save you a lot of last-minute stress, and that makes the bare feeling of your home well worth it.
  • Books, DVDs and photo albums can also be boxed up several weeks before moving day.

Breaking your move into small steps makes it more manageable. You don’t have to do everything at once. Order your boxes for moving house one week, then focus on utilities the next, for example. Accomplishing one step a week starting eight or ten weeks ahead of your move will make the whole job much easier.

Buska’s plastic boxes’ packages allow you to keep the boxes for a full week, so you don’t need to rush the packing and unpacking process. If you would rather take a little longer, Buska also offers the possibility of extending it up to four weeks, from only €12.50 per week.
