Start packing early. Packing can be a length process so leave plenty of time.
Choose good quality boxes that won't fall apart on moving day. Small boxes just mean more trips to the van.
Get some quotes for using a removal company, it may be cheaper than you think if you already have the boxes and are flexible on dates.
Get organised start decluttering and use a countdown guide to moving house.
Clearly labelling makes life much easier when it comes to loading and unpacking, your know which boxes goes where and will be able to find item quickly and easily.
Notify utilities as soon as possible or you may be put on temporary rates.
If moving yourself ask friends and family to help, allocate a day early.
If hiring a van take time to think about loading items. The first items in the van, lorry, truck will be the last items off. So, if you have things that you need for the first day at your new home, then make sure they are loaded last.
Don't try an unpack everything in one day, just the essentials
