Get Your Moving Game Face On In Four Steps

By George Hadgelias

Moving house is no easy task – it’s all about strong organisation, hiring the right people and saying goodbye to your old life and hello to your new one.

As the big day approaches, it’s important to be prepared, especially at the moment during COVID-19 when removalists are hard to come by and working on strict schedules.

Here are some fun ways to get ready to move…

1. Play the ‘Moving Out’ game

This game is all about strategic moving out and will be launched on Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on April 28.

You can practise moving furniture without knocking it on the walls and racing to a strict time limit dodging obstacles – not too dissimilar to the real world!

The game’s catchphrase, “style, grace and danger are all your middle name” will be your personal mantra come moving day.

2. Get your body in shape

If you don’t work out properly before moving, that heavy couch will give you a pain in the neck that you will have to nurse for weeks to follow.

In the lead up to moving, practise your squats, push-ups, and stretches to ensure you’re limber for the heavy lifting to come.

There are some great online workout videos currently available to do at home – just browse Youtube for one that suits you best.

Popsugar Fitness has a series of workouts you can do with furniture at home – check out this one which was done with a chair.

3. Know who to hire

Removalists are still considered an essential service, so don’t try to move by yourself if you have more than just a few items.

The other tip is to never just hire one man for the job. Not only will you be relied upon to help them lift everything, but some pieces of furniture need more than two people to move.

It’s also highly unlikely that with one removalist you will finish on time and you’ll just be paying that removalist more anyway for working overtime.

4. Have food and wine delivered

After a huge day of moving, the last thing you want to be doing is cooking dinner. No one wants to be rummaging around in the moving boxes for salt.

Have in mind what you’re going to order from UberEats or Deliveroo and don’t forget a bottle of wine – most bottle shops are currently offering delivery during COVID-19 restrictions.
