Removal tips: do I need to take everything with me?

During your removal, one particular question may pop up in your head: ‘Do I really need to bring everything I own?’ This may not apply to some people, since they will be moving into a smaller place. But even if you have plenty of space in your new house, you may dread the organization that comes with it. Moving absolutely everything can be quite a burden. We recommend planning beforehand, to see if you actually need to pack everything you own. It can save you a lot of time packing and heavy lifting if decided to leave things behind.

  1. Moving tips – Leaving furniture behind
    Are you planning to have a new interior design in your future home? Best to start immediately and leave your old furniture behind. It will save you a lot of lugging and costs. Ask the people that are moving in if they might want to purchase your furniture. And if not, Marktplaats is a great option! Make sure to do upfront, so your couch can be collected before your moving date. As a result, you can leave everything behind on the day itself and move worry-free.
  2. Sell your curtains
    Taking your curtains with you, a big yes or no? Naturally, it is very personal and depends on the situation you are in. If it is possible to furnish your new home before you have moved, it is definitely worth the trouble. You can start immediately and have a lot less to move with you! Curtains are typically easy to sell. Start doing this in advance, so people have the time to take a look at your curtains, as a lot of people will tend to do so.
  3. Store your belongings
    Are you not able to move everything the first time, but was selling your belongings difficult or not possible at all? You may want to consider renting a storage unit. Be aware this can get pricy and you need to ask yourself if that is worth it. But at least your new home will not be full of unpacked boxes.
