What is the most efficient way to move house?

We all know moving house is hard. With so many tasks on the ‘to do list’, it’s common to feel overwhelmed. But don’t despair, Removalspal is here to help. Big or small, there are always ways to improve the efficiency of your house moving experience. Read on to learn about how you can save time, money, and energy when it comes to moving house, and also hoe Removalspal can aid in this process. 

Borrow a small van

A small van can be the best way to move house if you’re not moving many belongings. They also fit into tight parking spaces or driveways much easier, making moving your furniture from A to B much faster. Small vans also don’t use as much fuel or emit as much carbon dioxide as larger vehicles, lowering your impact on the environment.

Use cardboard boxes instead of plastic ones

Plastic boxes are lined with oil-based plastic that takes hundreds of years to decompose in landfill sites. Buying cardboard boxes means they’ll easily break down in a matter of months, meaning less waste at the end of your move! It’s also better for the environment because fewer resources were used to make them (cardboard takes only two per cent of the energy required to make plastic). At Removalspal, the range of removal boxes they offer is wide. Multiple sizes, double and single walled and even wardrobe boxes to fit all of your furniture when moving. 

Only move big items that you actually need

Only take items with you that you actually need. If you’re downsizing, do you really need to transport all of your furniture and appliances? Also, if you haven’t used something in more than a year, like a tumble dryer, it’s not worth taking it with you. This is a good time to declutter your home and get rid of anything that you don’t use anymore. If the item is still in good condition, consider selling it to make a bit of extra cash. For the big items that you have, Removalspal has the right size of cardboard boxes or padded covers to make sure that all your furniture will arrive safe and sound at your new home. 

Ask your friends to help

If you’ve not got a lot of stuff to move, asking friends and family to help can often speed the process up and save you some money as well. They can help with packing, loading and unloading and even offer moral support when the job gets tough.

Plan ahead for a move with less waste

Moving house is a great opportunity to reduce your household waste. As well as planning ahead and thinking about what furniture you can reuse, setting up all your new utility services gives you the chance to opt-out of receiving paper bills and letters. Think carefully about food storage too – stocking up on reusable containers can help you cut down on plastic bags, tin foil and cling film. What’s more, before you leave your old home, try and eat all your food up so that nothing gets thrown out unnecessarily on moving day.
