Giffen Furniture Removals How To Move House Quickly & Effectively

For most of us, the process of moving house can be very time consuming. However for some, having a few weeks or even months up our sleeve to pack up our belongings and transport them over to our new space is just not possible. While the thought of moving house quickly can be a fairly daunting and even stressful one, achieving this task in just a short space of time is entirely possible.

Below are some useful tips and tricks for moving house quickly when you’re short on time.


Come Up With A Gameplan

While it might be tempting to get started on your house move immediately, it’s worth taking a step back first to formulate an actual “gameplan” or plan of action for how to best approach this task. By noting down all of the necessary tasks that need completing, you can slowly tick off all completed tasks as you go and stay on track with your house move.


Organise Transport

Are you looking to hire a professional removalist or will you be attempting your house move as a DIY project? There are of course pros and cons for both options and it’s best to make your mind up early on as to which option you would like to undertake before you make a call to a removalist or truck hire company.

Hiring a professional removalist is the easiest option when it comes to moving house last minute. Getting a professional to help will mean less heavy lifting plus you won’t have to worry at all about transporting your belongings over to your new place. Plus, you can rest assured that your belongings will be in the capable hands of people who are both experienced and trained to move your belongings safely over to your new place.

A DIY house move is more involved of course. Despite being a cheaper option than hiring a professional removalist, a DIY house move will mean you will have to do most of the grunt work of packing and transporting your personal effects and furniture yourself.


Lighten The Load

One way to make the task of moving house easier is to offload any unused or unwanted items ahead of your move rather than transporting them over to your new place. Lightening your moving load will mean less items to pack, lift onto the truck and then have to carry over to your new space – meaning a faster and more efficient house move.

Put aside any items you no longer want, need or use and then decide whether or not you would like to sell, donate or give them away to family and friends who can benefit from their use.


Have Packing Materials On Hand

Ready to start packing? Before you even place a single item into a box, make sure you have all of your necessary packing supplies within arm’s reach first. The last thing you want is to finish packing your box only to realise you’ve run out of packing tape or additional moving boxes. So be sure to get all your packing supplies ready before you even get started.


Start Packing

Packing is probably the most time-consuming aspect of moving house so it’s best to get started on this task immediately rather than put it off. If you’re really pushed for time, try not to worry too much about every aspect of how you go about doing this task and just get started. Simply pack up your items now and worry about sorting them later on at your new place.


Get Some Help

You know the saying “many hands make light work”? Well, when it comes to moving house and packing your belongings, the more people available to help, the faster you can get the job done. Don’t be afraid to reach out to family and friends and call in some favours.


Organise Storage If You Need It

If all else fails and you can’t get everything packed up in time, another option to consider is temporary storage for your furniture and belongings. Temporary storage is a great option that can buy you more time to sort through all of your furniture and belongings after you’ve settled into your new place following a house move.
