Moving house by yourself can seem difficult - but it doesn't need to be.
Follow the simple steps in this guide and save hundreds of pounds by doing your own removals - without getting stressed out.
Consider making more than one trip with a smaller van if distances are short.
It can make access and loading much easier.
Buy or acquire plenty of strong boxes in advance.
Online packing stores sell complete sets for quite low prices, saving you hunting at the last minute.
Aim for a mixture of sizes - you can even get 'wardrobe boxes' to hang your clothes in.
Drawers provide excellent storage. To load a chest of drawers, remove all the drawers and carry them out separately.
Then reinsert them and tie them closed or push them against the side of the van - otherwise they will come open when you're driving.
Driving a modern van is quite easy - almost too easy.
Remember to keep your speed down on twisty sections - that way you'll avoid breakages.
Decide in advance what order to unpack in.
Then do one room at a time until you are finished.
