Keep Moving Stress-Free with These Simple Tips

As we have said many a time before, moving can be stressful! Being organized is the best key to success when it comes to stress-free moving. Here are our top tips to make it as seamless as possible.

  1. Sell all of your unwanted items on Gumtree. Why spend time, money, and effort moving things you don’t necessarily need? This is a great way to grab some extra cash, too.
  2. If possible, donate any items in decent position. If this is not a possibility, hire a dumpster to get rid of everything in one place; this can also then be used for all other garbage that may arise throughout the moving and cleaning process.
  3. Make a list of everything you are putting into each box so that you do not spend weeks in your new home trying to figure out where everything is.
  4. Have a bin or box for all necessities you will need for your first day and night. This could include things like mugs for morning coffee, a plate and cutlery for each person, tooth brushes, and more.
  5. Instead of taking all hanging clothing items off the hangers and packing them in a box, keep them on their hangers and simply place black garbage bags over them, with an elastic band to secure the hanger hooks together.
  6. If you have clothes in a chest of drawers, keep those clothes in the drawers when moving them.
  7. Pack heavy books and other heavy items in suitcases rather than boxes that may not hold up.
  8. Use socks to pack glasses and other breakables.

Now that you’ve got the knowledge, it’s time to move! Head to gumtree.co.za or your Gumtree app (click for Apple & Android).
