Moving home isn’t a fashion parade. Wear loose, comfortable clothes that allow you to move freely, and shoes, preferably with reinforced toes, that let you balance well. No flip-flops, and absolutely no high-heels.
If you’re hiring a van to move, be sure whoever will be driving it is familiar with a vehicle that size and insured to drive it. Driving a van is very different from driving a car, especially if you’re tired and stressed.
And, speaking of insurance, make sure you’re fully insured for your relocation. Your motive for a DIY move is probably to save money, and it can be tempting to see insurance as an optional extra, but if something goes wrong you could lose your possessions and get nothing back.
