Store That, London Docklands’ Advice on A Stress-Free Move

The thought of moving can often be daunting and overall quite a stressful experience. However, the main thing to remember is that it promises a fresh start and endless opportunities.

As the saying goes: “one door closes and another one opens.” And in this case, it’s the truth quite literally! Moving doesn’t need to be an ordeal. Which is why Store That, storage in East London, have put together a guide of handy tips and tricks to make it that little bit easier!

Start packing early

Even the most organised person will underestimate just how long it takes to pack all of their belongings. We would recommend you start packing several weeks before you move to ensure you give yourself plenty of time. Not only will this help to avoid a mad panic trying to find a spare box to place your prized mug in, but it will also give you an opportunity to have a good clear out of things you don’t need anymore.

Organisation is key

Nobody likes a hoarder. A tidy space is a tidy mind. When it comes to packing, think of the things you’re most likely to need when you first move in: cutlery, clothes, coffee etc. While you may consider your entire Dexter boxset an essential. Are you really going to need it the first day you move in? It’s important to start packing those kinds of items early in the process and leave the items such as plates until last minute.

Labels are everything

No, we’re not talking about designer labels. We’re talking about labelling every single one of your boxes. Why? So, it makes it easier for the removal company unloading your belongings into your new home and it also makes it easier for you when it comes to unpacking your boxes.

Make sure you have plenty of packing materials

Nothing will make the process more stressful than running out of bubble wrap on moving day and having to carry your late grandmother’s vase by hand the whole journey. How do you avoid this problem? Ensure you have plenty of moving materials that will safely and adequately protect your belongings. Fortunately, at Store That E14.
