Studies on statistica.com say that there are currently 7.8 million people living alone in the UK, and a whopping 7 million of these adults have no close friends. That is a lot of lonely people living in the UK. 

Having friends to rely on is a good thing. They can help you in a tight situation or give you a helping hand in case you need it. Moving homes is a significant situation that does require some helping hands. So if you're one of these isolated people who are moving houses and need some help but don't have friends, we got you. 

This article will focus on how to move houses by yourself. 

Moving and Packing Tips for Moving Without Help

Now, moving without any help may sound like a daunting task. Believe us. We know that if one person were moving on their own, the sheer scale of the process would take a significant toll on them. Therefore, we've compiled a list of everything you need to know if you're moving all by yourself. 

Decluttering 

Get rid of all the things and possessions you no longer need or want. This will help you tidy up a bit, and also, you'll know what is essential to pack and what to leave behind. Plus, fewer things to pack and move means less expensive the process will be less. 

It would help if you were moving with as few items as possible. This is good for your peace of mind and your bank account. 

Creating a moving checklist

We all have forgotten one or more things while moving. You've done it. Your friends have done it. We have all done it. It's one of those universal things that are true. Every human is prone to forgetting at least one thing while moving houses. 

However, to minimize the damage this does, it is recommended to have a checklist of all the items that you intend to pack and move with you. An index is easy to sort out your stuff and remember to bring it along. Then, if you forget something, check your checklist to see if you've taken care of it or if it's still somewhere. Easy peasy. It's incredible how this simple hack can work wonders. 

Finally, packing

Now that we're finally at the stage where we can start packing, here are some tips. Smaller boxes are better as they will help you track which items are where. Having a small designated box for your makeup or toiletries is excellent because it lets you know exactly where things are. Remember to label the boxes, too, so you can distinguish your packages. 

Remember to use bubble wrap for fragile items. These can include anything from perfumes to expensive china to even wall mirrors. Bubble wrap is your friend and will safely keep your possessions from cracking or breaking. 

Save the effort, hire professional movers 

In the end, the best option is to sit back, relax and let professional movers help you move. With tons of benefits, here is a summary of why they are beneficial especially when you have nobody to help you. 

  • Relocating takes time. It takes a lot of time, from weeks of planning ahead to filling the van, travelling, and unloading at the other end.
  • Professional movers are adept at packing delicate, priceless, or valuable things.
  • If the circumstances surrounding your transfer are uncertain or if issues arise, it could be simpler to handle.
