  1. Label boxes on the top and the sides with which room they're due to go to, and a description of what's inside.
  2. Put screws and bolts from furniture in freezer bags and stick it to the relevant bit of furniture with masking tape.
  3. Flatten boxes and lay them down to protect your flooring.
  4. Move your furniture in first, otherwise you'll end up moving boxes around to make room.
  5. Make sure there are lightbulbs - you don't want to have to go to the shops mid-move. We suggest creating a box of ‘moving essentials’ – kettle, mugs, tea, coffee, milk, sugar; cleaning things: cloths, detergents, dustpan and brushes, vacuum cleaner and dustbin bags; loo paper, kitchen towels and tissues; torch, pliers and screwdrivers; pens and paper and post-it notes.

These 5 tips will make all the difference when it comes to making your move.
