Moving house is definitely stressful time in your life. It’s also a rather time consuming process. It's not just the packing but the actual process of moving too. We have moved quite a few times over the years and it never gets any easier, this especially so if you have kids. But there are things you can do to make it less stressful on you. 

Moving is a good time to have a good declutter abd get rid of those unwanted items. There is no point in taking broken toys and items you no longer use with you.  If you are packing yourself then a tip is to have a bin bag ready to pop bits in as you go along so you can pack and declutter at the same time. We got rid of quite a lot of stuff when we were moving up here.

Be organised 

Once you know that you are going to be moving, lists will be your best friend. When we last moved I had a few different lists to keep us organised. We had lists of things we needed to pack, who we needed to inform of our address change and even a list of emergency numbers. These lists were incredibly handy as last time we moved we were relocating. 

Hire a reliable moving company
We researched quite a few moving companies and got quotes of how much everything was going to cost. Hiring a reliable moving company really can make things less stressful for packing and transporting items to your new home. Some removal companies will even pack for you at a cost.

Preparing important documents 
Make sure you have all those important documents that you need such as the house deed, passport and insurance papers in all one place and make sure you know where they are.

Protecting items
Make sure that you label any fragile boxes and that they are packed well and safely. We used bubble wrap for a lot of our fragile items last time we moved.
