Top Tips For a Stress Free Move

You’ve put down the deposit, filled in the necessary paperwork and now, all there is to, do is move in. Moving house is considered to be one of the most stressful things you can do in life, but with the right planning and preparation, moving home doesn’t have to be a chore.

Store That, Canary Wharf, understands that moving isn’t the most exciting activity to look forward to. Here are our top tips on how to tackle a move without breaking a sweat.


Pack it up

Throwing everything in the car and hoping for the best is a recipe for disaster! Boxes are great for making the moving process run smoothly and allow you to keep track and organise your belongings. To make things easier, Store That provides a variety of moving products, including boxes, bubble wrap and polythene covers so that you can move into your new home with ease.


Pack smart

Once you’re ready to pack your belongings, remember to pack smart. Pack the items you don’t use regularly first and bin those you’ve been hoarding all these years. Remember to start using up all the food in your fridge and freezer so nothing gets wasted.

Putting all the heavy items into one large box will only making moving into your new home much more stressful. Make sure you think logically about how you’re packing your items. For heavier items, pack them into smaller boxes so they are easier to carry, whereas lighter items can be placed into larger boxes.


Treat yourself

Once you’re in your new home, you can finally sit down and relax!  Once you’ve moved into your new home, you may find you have a few belongings that don’t fit anymore. Why not consider packing them away in a Store That storage unit?
