Green Moving: The Secrets To Moving Home The Eco-Friendly Way

Moving home can be one of the most stressful experiences that anyone will ever have to deal with. Not only do you have to think about packing up all of your furniture and belongings into boxes and crates, but you wonder whether anything fragile will make it undamaged at the other end.

And then there is the question of spending the time unpacking everything and disposing of any packing materials. Aside from the practical issues raised with moving, many people are also concerned with the environmental aspects of their home move too.

For example, the waste generated by disposing of unwanted packing material like cardboard boxes, as well as the CO2 (carbon dioxide) emissions generated from the vehicle used to move your furniture and personal belongings – something which can be greatly increased if more than one trip needs to be made from your old home to your new one.

Whilst I can’t really help you with making your home move less stressful (only you can sort that out), I can certainly offer you some tips to making your home move a more eco-friendly one! Here’s how:

Declutter your home

The first thing you should do before you even consider packing your stuff away is to discard anything that you do not want anymore.

Most things in your home can be recycled or reused, so if you have an old wardrobe unit then you should consider placing an advert on Freecycle so that someone can reuse it, rather than taking it down to your local waste centre.

The key point here is to declutter your home as much as possible, but do it in an eco-friendly way; send as little to landfill as possible!

Use recycled or used cardboard boxes

Consider using recycled or used cardboard boxes for moving your personal belongings in.

Removals firms such as www.manandvanexeter.co.uk generally recommend using brand new cardboard boxes for stability purposes, so if you are planning to reuse cardboard boxes make sure that they are still strong enough to be reused.

Make good use old newspapers and magazines

Rather than spending money buying plastic bubble wrap to protect any breakables in transit, simply scrunch up and use old newspaper and magazine pages to pad out your boxes. You might also spot an interesting news article in the process, which can be an added bonus of sorts!

Hire as big a vehicle as possible

To cut down on harmful CO2 emissions generated by van engines, you should hire as big a vehicle as possible. This way you only have to make one trip from your old home to your new one, and as an aside you won’t have to spend as much money refuelling your vehicle before giving it back to the hire company!

Use environmentally-friendly cleaning products

You will have a need to clean your old home once you move out, and your new one before and during your moving-in process. Rather than using chemicals that can potentially harm yourself, your pets and others around you, you should opt for environmentally-friendly cleaning products.
