First Time Movers

Ultimate Moving Guide

There are a few tips to consider when moving for the first time:

  1. Don’t be afraid to ask for help
    You’ve never moved before, so you may not be sure what you need or what the move is going to be like. The best thing to do would be to find someone who has moved before and ask for some advice. Whether it’s about packing, things you need to bring, or just cleaning tips, an experienced person can give you some important advice.
  2. Don’t lose your patience
    Unless you’ve lived on your own before, it’s hard to know how much you eat, especially when you’ve been sharing with your family for your entire life. So when you move to your new place, don’t stock up your fridge and cabinets with too much, as a lot of it may become ruined. For the first month, just buy what you need for a few days. At the end of the month you should know and be able to judge how much you really eat.
  3. Don’t worry
    You will almost certainly feel quite tired after you move in, with all the cleaning, shopping and organising. After you’ve really settled in and have everything cleaned and under control, you should get your energy back again.
  4. Don’t forget to eat
    You may be so overwhelmed by your first move that you might forget to feed yourself. When you’re done the day’s cleaning, make sure you eat and drink something. Even though you might not be hungry, you don’t want to go a whole day of cleaning without nourishing yourself.
  5. Don’t forget to do your laundry
    Maybe your mum has been doing laundry for you your entire life. If so, you don’t suddeny realise that you have no clean clothes to wear.
