Moving house can be one of life’s most stressful events. However, by careful planning and organisation. You can reduce the amount of hassle and worry on the moving day.

A simple way of reducing the number of items you have to take with you is by donating clothes, curtains and children’s toys to Charity shops. There are also sites such as that will give you cash for your unwanted CDs, games and DVDs. With online services such as Netflix and Spotify, the items are not needed and usually just gather dust.
