Tips on moving home

Moving home can be the ideal time to get organised

Moving into a new home can seem like a stressful process but it doesn’t need to be. Here are our top tips on moving home.


Moving house is a great excuse to get rid of some of the clutter that is likely to have built up in your home. Whether you’re a ‘shove it under the bed’ kind of hoarder or you have a cupboard under the stairs filled with all kinds of unwanted goods, AMS have a solution for you. Simply order an AMS Skip Bag for just £6 and fill it with up to 1 tonne of the items you no longer need in your life. Once filled, call our team on 01202 579 579 to arrange a low cost collection within few days.

Begin packing early

There is no harm in starting to pack with plenty of time to spare; you may have hundreds of DVD’s that could be organised into a box ready for moving day or a spare room that would the perfect place to organise and box up all your non essential items ready for the move. This approach will make your life easier in the final few days leading up to your move.

Stay organised

Organisation is key to moving house. So whilst you’re boxing up your belongings, make sure you label everything as this will make unpacking a simpler and quicker process. It’s also worth having a box of ‘essentials’ for ‘moving in day’; that way you don’t need to unpack lots of different boxes before that much needed cuppa.

Empty AMS Skip Bags are strong and hardwearing, so are great for storage and transportation.

Don’t move furniture until you’re ready

The big day has arrived, but don’t rush to move in your new sofa or dining table, get each room in a good place before hauling large furniture items through the door. You don’t want to risk damaging your prized items by having to move them around a number of times to clean and finish the room. Be patient!

Planning to renovate, don’t forget…
