Moving house to Croydon can be as fun and exciting as it is stressful, with the sheer amount of factors to consider. Everything from drawing up a moving checklist to comparing the prices of removal companies requires your attention, and there’s always something which doesn’t go to plan. The organisation required for a successful relocation can certainly be a daunting task for most people, but some of us, no matter what the job that needs doing, try to be as environmentally friendly as possible in everything we do. If you’re one of these people, here are a few pointers for doing your part to save the planet as you move to your new little patch of it in CR0.


The first thing to do, which should really be an item on anyone’s moving checklist, is to thoroughly go through everything in your house, and get rid of any items you don’t want or need anymore. Unwanted junk can be gotten rid of a number of ways that are much greener alternatives than taking it to the tip to be buried. One such method is selling as much as possible at a car boot sale, or even online if you think you have the time. If you set yourself a cut-off point for getting rid of your clutter before the relocation, then recycle as much of your excess stuff as possible. Anything you simply can’t sell or recycle can usually be donated at a charity shop, which while isn’t strictly good for the eco system, may well light up somebody else’s life.


If you’re moving home, odds are you’re looking to sell your current one, which means a lot of cleaning to make your home in Croydon, CR2 as attractive as possible to potential buyers. There are many green house cleaning products on the market, which will save a tremendous amount of waste produced by other cleaning chemicals. If you make a point to buy eco-friendly cleaning products, you can accomplish two tasks in one by making your former home shine and saving Mother Nature from a little more harm. Another big part of moving house is the packing phase, which requires a lot of components. Aside from the obvious cardboard boxes, you’ll find you will also need an excess of materials such as bubble wrap for carefully wrapping valuable and fragile items, and foam peanuts for creating an extra layer of protection. While these are all plastic and paper based materials, many reputable moving companies in CR2 now supply their customers with specially designed eco-friendly and reusable packing materials, many of which are highly biodegradable in case you’re stuck with having to put them in the landfill.


Finally, try to scour the market for the most eco-friendly method of actually moving your possessions from A to B. You may have taken every previous step to ensure your move to Croydon is as green as possible, but this could all be undone if the removal company you choose has a big enough carbon footprint. First of all, take some time to consider if you really need a removal company. Moving everything you need from one house to another just using the space of your eco-friendly car may sound stressful, but is often not the nightmare you may imagine depending on how much you can de-clutter before the big day. If you simply can’t deal with this, then there is fortunately a growing niche for removal companies that use hybrid vans, though these can be considerably more expensive than a service with regular vehicles.
