As a way to make your moving day much easier and more stress free consider colour coding your boxes. A simple stripe of colour ensures your boxes are placed in the correct rooms and doesn't take up time whilst people read labels. At a glance you can see if this is a box for the kitchen or the bedroom. You can even tell what order the boxes should be opened in.

An idea of a colour coded system might have yellow for the kitchen, blue for the bathroom, green for the garden, black for one of the bedrooms, pink for another bedroom and so on. In a colour coded system, you can also use no colour. For example, the boxes that don't have a room stripe on them are all for the living room.

You can use colour codes to designate a box's importance too. If your breakfast things are in a box with a yellow stripe (for the kitchen) and you add a red stripe beside the yellow, you've just indicated this is one of the important kitchen boxes and should be opened first. Whilst it is tempting to think all boxes are important, you should only mark the ones you'll really need to open as soon as possible.

You can use paint, stickers or even crayons to colour code your boxes. They're not works of art; it's just an easy system to make sure everything ends up in the right place. Oh and if you happen to have the brightest, most colourful moving day in London, then great! Just think how easy it will be to put everything away when you get to your new home or office.

If you do decide to colour code your boxes, just remember to tell the removal men the code.
