Top tips for moving house

Moving house is often deemed as one of the most stressful things you will do in your life.  But that needn’t be the case.  Here at Roy Trevor removals we have years of expertise in helping families move.  In fact, we have been moving people since 1918.  So, with almost a hundred years in the removals industry we have plenty of helpful tips to guide you on your way.


Organisation is key to any house move.  Being organised will help to take the stress out of moving house.  By planning ahead you will find yourself feeling much calmer.  Giving yourself plenty of time means you won’t rush and miss important things.

A room at a time

When packing consider taking a room at a time.  Ensure you label all of your boxes carefully.  Make sure you have plenty of packing material.  When labelling each box you may want to list what items are in it.  That way once you get to your new home you will know what needs to go where.

Basics box 

One really helpful tip when moving house is packing an essentials box.  This should include things such as scissors, pens, paperwork for your new house, tea, coffee, healthy snacks and the kettle!  Taking regular breaks is essential so you don’t get tired and stressed.


Remember to let friends and family know you new address.  At the same time you should also inform the Royal Mail so your post can be re-directed, your utilities companies, schools, doctor’s and any other places that need to be informed. By doing this in advance you will save yourself any extra hassle.
