While for many, the countdown to Christmas means buying presents, putting up decorations and indulging in lots of festive food, it’s also a time when others are focusing on more urgent matters, such as moving house!

Moving house can be one of the most stressful event’s in a person’s life, particularly at Christmas time, but surprisingly this is one of the most popular times for moving home, so we’ve listed a few tips to help make your move as stress-free as possible.

1. Plan ahead

Be sure to confirm your move date well in advance (preferably before the 24th December, so you can have a somewhat relaxing Christmas).

2. Book your removals company

By getting a quote you can book your preferred moving day, so you will know when you need to have everything ready by.

3. Organise your packing

Aim to start packing at least 2 weeks before your move date and ensure all of your boxes are labelled correctly to speed things up on the other end.

4. Inform your utility companies of your move

Let them know your move date to avoid spending Christmas without water, heating or electricity and remember to read your meter, so your final bill payments are accurate.

5. Get your Christmas shopping done early 

This allows you to wrap all of your presents and send them out before you move, giving you more time to focus on other tasks.

6. Pack your presents and Christmas decorations in the same boxes

You will want to create a festive feeling in your new home, so make sure all of your decorations and presents are easy to find amongst all the other boxes.

7. Clear your drive and pathways 

The winter weather can cause issues for your move – wet leaves, ice, snow and sleet can make carrying heavy boxes and large items a dangerous task.

8. Remember to lock away your valuables

Christmas time sees an increase in burglaries, so make sure you keep your valuable items secure and out of sight throughout your move.

9. Don’t forget about your TV provider

Book in a pre-Christmas slot or you will miss out on your favourite Christmas television shows!

10. Remember to celebrate

Don’t forget what the season is all about – although moving house can be challenging, don’t miss out on your usual Christmas traditions.

By following these 10 top moving tips, your Christmas move will be a lot less stressful than you expected. Happy moving and merry Christmas!
