It’s a hard task – sorting through all your possessions, packing them into boxes and then hauling the whole lot into your new abode. And one of the main worries is of course that something will either get lost or broken.
But what if we told you that with a few simple tips and tricks all that stress could dissipate?

Planning ahead will save you big in the long run, she adds. It’ll minimise your chances of getting overwhelmed on moving day and, at the end of the process, leave you thankful you did.
