Moving house can be stressful. One way to ease some of the stress and make the process run more smoothly is by having a house clearance.
Read on to discover some practical tips on optimising house clearance to save you time, money and stress.
As with anything, being prepared and starting early is key to a successful declutter. You should plan to start packing at least two before you are due to move. This will give you enough time to sort through your possessions so that you know you are only packing the items that you are certain you want to bring with you.
Some people have found that clearing out before you have even found a buyer can help your property sell quicker as you have a clear, clutter-free space which will make your home look more spacious.
Separate unwanted items
The next step of a home clearance is to separate items into different piles: one for items you no longer want to keep and one for items you do want to take to your new home.
For example, the wanted team may consist of valuable items, sentimental items, pictures, games, consoles and more. The no longer needed or wanted section may consist of obsolete items crowding your property’s space.
The best advice is to not let nostalgia take over. Pick each item up, decide yes or no for keeping it and then determine if it’s something you want to take the time to sell or not. By moving quickly, you will be more efficient which can make the whole process much easier.
Remove the rubbish
Once you have split everything into categories of wanted and unwanted items, the next step is to go through and take out anything that is rubbish. To make the process much quicker and easier, simply hire a skip for all of your hazardous and non-hazardous waste.
Donate and sell
Any items that you don’t want to keep but are in perfectly good condition can be donated or sold. Try local charity shops or apps like Depop or Vinted for an environmentally-friendly solution to decluttering your home.
