Sort out your things

You can also use the move as a chance to clear out your possessions. Look through everything before you start packing and decide what things you do not want to take with you to your new address. If there are a lot of clothes you can pack them up and give them to a charity shop. You should think about getting boxes and old newspapers gathered up. Boxes will be available from local shops and you can save your newspapers for wrapping breakables.

If you have too much stuff, especially the kind that you don't know what to do with, get a storage space and place it in there packed. It'll be out of your way and make it easier to deal with the things you really need. In time you might find that most of those storage boxes never get opened. We often cling on things for emotional reasons, not because we really need them. Moving your house is a good opportunity to get rid of some things we no longer need.

If you are moving everything yourself, you can rent a van to help you out. Make sure it is a suitable size. If the van is too small you’ll find yourself doing multiple trips, and if it is too large you may not be able to park, or even drive it. You should be comfortable with driving the van so give it a try before loading it up to make sure. The alternative is always to hire a professional removal company.
