Your moving day is usually filled with a beehive of activities and we’re here to help you out and give you some tips to make it easier.
Begin your packing early
There is always something that makes you feel at peace when you prepare early. Doing it early allows you time to probably sell or even donate some items that you don’t need. If you have large clutter zones like the garage for instance, you need a lot of time deal with the clutter. That way you can make sure you have time to take what you don’t want to keep to the dump or selling it so you’re not moving it twice.
Packing can be very involving especially if you have been in that home for many years. You have to begin packing the small and important things like the ornaments, wall hangings etc, and then move to the bulkier items. A few days before moving day, you can start packing your clothes and beddings. These should be kept in a bag. Leave the toiletries and kitchen utensils until the last day.
Use a sticker to label every box, indicating clearly the contents inside. This will help in hauling and unpacking, so that you don’t have to spend time looking for an item. The boxes that contain fragile items should be labeled clearly to avoid breakages.
Mind about the kids and pets
Children and pets are very sensitive and can get hurt or be stressed when moving. The front door is usually busy with loads of cartons blocking the way. This is very dangerous for the young ones. Thus, in preparation, you can lock the main entrance and use the backdoor. You can also get a dog-sitter or a child-minder during the moving day.
Prepare your car in advance
It’s important to prepare the registration title, the insurance, and other necessary documents that are involved when moving home. Don’t wait until the last day; it’s likely that you’ll forget.
During this time, you have many people moving in and out of your compound. Thus, you need to have someone stationed at the major exits. You can also talk to your friends to see if you can use some space in their home where you can keep your valuables before the moving day to mitigate risk.
Surround yourself with friends
Having your friends around you is the best thing that can happen to you in times of distress. Now, moving is not easy, organizing here and there, calling this provider and that can be so daunting. Thus, a friend will give you a shoulder to lean on.
Moving day doesn’t have to be that stressful, you only need to prepare in advance, put your things in order, talk to a reliable company and have the right people around you.
