Tips For Moving House In A HurryMoving house is something that requires a lot of time and effort to make sure it happens smoothly and efficiently. Lots of people plan their house move months in advance to prevent any accidents happening on their big day. Unfortunately, it’s not always possible to be so prepared, and you might find yourself needing to pack up your home and move house in only a matter of days. No matter what the circumstances may be, there are lots of things you can do to try and keep your stress levels to a minimum if you’re trying to move house in a hurry. This guide can help you out with some handy hints for moving house with a time limit. -    Sourcing packing materials.If you’re on a strict time limit then sourcing packing materials is something that should be done quickly and efficiently. Spend a couple of hours asking around your local shops and supermarkets to find second-hand cardboard boxes. You should also have a root around your house to find any plastic boxes, such as under-the-bed storage boxes, or any packaging that you might have held onto over the years. Collect all of your packing supplies together and make sure that all of your electronic and fragile items are going to be well-padded. You can use old towels and bedding to wrap around any fragile items, and you can also make use of newspaper or anything else that can provide a layer of protection! -    Enlisting help.Friends, relatives, neighbours and family – anyone that owes you any favours is going to be of enormous help when it comes to packing in a hurry! Assign the different rooms of your home to different teams of people so that you can get everything packed and ready to go in no time at all! -    Calling in the professionals.Professional help is always a bonus when it comes to moving house, but removal companies get booked up months in advance. It’s worth asking around to find out if anyone can give you a helping hand at such late notice, but be wary of scams! Make sure you only hire someone that has experience or that you’ve found based on the recommendations of a friend. Before you sign any paperwork make sure you understand what services you’re paying for so you can avoid having to face any unexpected costs and fees. -    De-clutter as you go.Once you start packing you should separate items into things to pack, things to throw away and things to donate to charity. You might even come across a few items that might be worth selling, so keep an eye out! Try to keep only what you need – if you haven’t used it in a few months then ask yourself if you really need to keep it! De-cluttering as you pack will save you time and effort, and it will result in you needing to pack fewer items! -    Put aside essential items.Make a list of any items you might want or need during the first few hours in your new home. This will probably include bathroom essentials such as hygiene products, bedding, kitchen cutlery and crockery and maybe even a kettle for that first cup of tea! Whatever you put on the list, try to bag and box these items separately and label them clearly so they’ll be easy to find as soon as you get to your new house.
