Moving House without stress

By Steve Brennan

Minutes after seeing this car crossing the Auckland Harbour bridge the one singe rope broke and blocked two lanes of the bridge with furniture, lucky no one was hurt.
Our moving tip’s.
1. If there’s one thing that can drive stress levels up, it’s leaving things to the last minute. Give yourself a good month time to prep yourself for the actual move, both on an emotional and organisational level.
2. Depending how far away your new place is, you might need to arrange a truck and movers to help get your furniture from A to B. Here’s where starting early is particularly important as you’ll need to arrange times well in advance to ensure you’re not stuck with a packed-up house and transportation on the day.

3. Speaking of, try source a variety of boxes from retail stores or your local supermarket. Asking for free boxes both saves you money and makes those guys’ life easier as they usually have a lot of spare cardboard boxes that’d just end up in the skip otherwise.

4. Finally, and most importantly, enjoy it all – you’re moving house, that’s exciting!
