Moving Preparations – Tips and Tricks
Have you finally found a lovely place to live in? Congratulations! Moving to a lovely neighborhood and starting a new life with your family is a big thing! Every person dreams of a wonderful home and a perfect job! If you are moving for one of those two reasons, good for you! However, in order to avoid unnecessary moving stress, you should hire a professional mover, make plans and a checklist in advance! Today, we will give you some tips on moving preparations! Let’s begin!
Moving Preparations – Hire a Professional Mover
Whether you are moving locally or overseas, it’s highly recommended to hire a professional mover to assist you with your move. Getting full-moving services from your professional mover will save you a lot of precious time. The packing process is the most difficult and exhausting! If you hire a professional mover, you won’t have to worry about packing. A professional moving company offers plenty of moving services such as local or long distance moving, packing supplies, packing services, storage solutions, special services, etc.
But, in order to prepare properly for the move that is coming, you should also:
- Organize and make a checklist
- Declutter and make a yard/garage sale
- Gather moving boxes
- Gather packing supplies
- Pack an essentials box
Organize and Make A Checklist
As soon as you find out about the relocation, you should start planning, organizing and making a checklist. A checklist will help you to finish all the tasks on time. Involve your family in the moving process too and give each of your family members a task or two to finish. You don’t have to carry this burden by yourself!
Declutter and Make A Yard/Garage Sale
Everyone should declutter annually. However, when the time for the move comes, decluttering is a must. You will be surprised how many things you possess that you do not use at all. Get rid of everything old, rusty and unusable. If you have some items in good condition, you can give them to your family, neighbors, and friends. You can also make some money if you organize a yard/garage sale!
Moving Preparations – Gather Moving Boxes
You will need a lot of moving boxes. Renting plastic bins from your professional mover is also a good idea (you won’t have to deal with extra boxes and recycling). However, you can also find free cardboard boxes in the local stores or businesses around you!
Gather Packing Supplies
Packing supplies are also important for your moving preparations! Start gathering packing supplies as soon as you can. You will need packing tape, wrapper, packing paper, packing peanuts, etc. However, if you want to save some money on packing supplies, you should use clothes, towels, and blankets to cover and protect sensitive items such as a TV and mirrors.
Pack An Essentials Box
If you arrive late, you will need a warm shower and a good night of sleep! Pack the items you are using on a daily basis in an essentials box. Essentials box should also contain toothbrush and toothpaste, glasses or lenses, personal hygiene products, medications, pajamas, etc. One essentials box should contain sheets, blankets, pillows, and pillow casings. Thus, you will have all that is necessary for the first few days, so this is an important task in moving preparations.
