How to take the stress out of your big move!

Moving house can be incredibly stressful. However it doesn’t need to be. Prolink moves hundreds of people each week; we know what works, what saves time and how to take the unnecessary stress out of moving your home.

We utilize a project management approach and offer a bespoke service. We carefully assess your relocation needs and requirements and develop a realistic packing and transit schedule to ensure a ‘smooth move’.

Prolink’s Top Tips for packing up your house:

The Pre pack- Always De-Clutter, Itemise and Over-estimate on boxes

Always pack by room – This makes unpacking so much easier.

Label all boxes – Then when you are at your new home when you unpack your van, you can immediately put every box in the room that it should be.

The Admin– Make sure anything/documents important is safe, like passports, birth certs etc keep together so when unpacking you have to hand and ready to file in your new safe place!

Weighty Issue – Always make sure your box can carry its weight.  If it can’t then get another box. Any heavy items should be packed separately but if items are very heavy or big then perhaps they don’t require a box at all.

Fragile Goods – They should be carefully wrapped in bubble wrap and shouldn’t have any room for movement in the box.

Now for the unpack

Supplies – Make sure you have all your must haves to hand- tea, milk the kettle for the hours of unpacking that lies ahead!

Room by Room – Unpack one room at a time rather than trying to tackle the whole house at once.

Recycle – Love the environment and recycle your boxes.

Delegate – When your items arrive, have one person directing the movers as to where each item of furniture goes. Don’t go unpacking boxes straight away as this can get in the way of the movers. Wait until they have finished in a particular room and then you can make a start on that room.

Final Inspection -Take a look once the movers have finished unloading, once you are satisfied you can sign the necessary paperwork and sent us on our way.

Now simply Unpack and Put Away!
