Moving Tips

Moving house is a stressful time, but here at Tiger Self Storage we can offer you some great advice to make moving a more manageable task. The first step is decluttering, if you declutter first then you will only be left with the things that you actually want. This will make packing an easier task.
Pack early, as so many people underestimate how long it can take to pack up a house thinking that they have more time than they do. We would recommend starting at least two months before, but start off small, so a box or two a day and you will be well underway.

The next step would be to start packing the things you use the least, Christmas decorations are one of the best examples of this because you will only need these once a year. Pack the small things like ornaments and decorative pieces, these are very time consuming to pack correctly but they are not needed for day to day living.

Pack one room at a time and then move on, don’t start packing some things from one room and some things from another because that way it will be hard to keep organised.

Don’t over pack your boxes especially if you are using cardboard boxes. The reasoning for this is if you over fill your boxes you run the danger of the box breaking and damaging your goods. Another reason for not over packing a box is to keep its shape for more convenient storage, if the boxes are all the same size and kept in shape, they will stack easily for more organised storing. Another little tip for boxing up your goods is filling empty spaces in the box with newspaper to keep the items in the boxes secure.

Finally, always label your boxes!

We hope all these tips help for a less stressful move.
