Pack as Early as You Can
If you’ve decided that you’re going to pack up your items yourself, you should start as soon as you finish reading this guide! Getting started as early as you can is going to help you in the long run. If there are plenty of items and pieces of furniture likely to go unused before the move, start on packing those up first.

Clearly Label Everything

Whether you are going to unpack and relocate everything yourself at point B, or if you’d like eXpert Man and Van to help unpack everything for you, it pays to label all your boxes. The last thing you’ll need when moving in is to fumble around with boxes for the kitchen when you’re halfway into unpacking the bathroom.
Take it from us, this is is one of the most important tips for moving home – clearly label your rooms and which items are fragile. This is going to help you as much as it’s going to help us! We’re talking from experience here!
Take Important Items With You Upfront
You can rest assured that we will always take exceptional care of your items. However, we strongly suggest you try and take the most important and precious items with you upfront in your car on moving day. For example, make sure to take valuables which are easy to lose with you in a bag or holdall as you drive upfront.
This might include jewellery, money, or keys. Think about how much of a hassle it might be to find all of these again when you arrive at the other end! Keep tabs on the most important bits and pieces as much as you think.
Keep Your Bed Clear
Some home moves can take days to complete and unpack from in full! Therefore, plan ahead. Prioritise unpacking and setting up your bed so you have somewhere easy to sleep. After all, you never really know how long you’ll be unpacking and setting up into the evening!
eXpert Man and Van will strive to get you moving and unpacking as swiftly as possible. However, when it all gets a bit too exhausting, make sure to save yourself somewhere to sleep!
