Moving into a new home is exciting – it gives you a fresh start, new opportunities and the chance to make your new home your own.
That’s not to say it can’t feel amazing at times. Fortunately, there is a way to avoid the problem. Get started early, make a plan, and do whatever you can to make it easier on yourself.
So we thought we’d share our top 8 tips for a hassle-free move.
HIRE REMOVAL COMPANY
Depending on when you want to move, it can be difficult to get an appointment. Finally, most people try to move on weekends, school holidays, or public holidays to allow themselves more time. Don’t get caught out – plan ahead.
Choosing a removal company may seem easy in comparison to all the other decisions you’ll have to make, but it’s important to choose a professional. Your belongings depend on the company you choose and to avoid damaging goods or property or paying more than expected it is important to do some research.
MAKE A LIST
It can seem like too much to think about before you move – after all, real life goes on with your moving plans.
To avoid stress, make a to-do list and think about your schedule. You may have just accepted your offer and are months away from graduating. That doesn’t mean you have to wait until a week before moving in to start preparing.
MAKE A PACKING PLAN AND START EARLY
Packing always takes longer than you think, so it’s better to start as early as possible. Once you’ve cleared out everything you no longer need, it’s best to start with the room you use the least.
Packing these spaces up and using them to store boxes of stuff will be the least intrusive in your life and allow you to maximize yourself.
When labeling boxes, it’s easy to summarize the contents at the top, e.g. B. “Kitchen Utensils” but that may not help if you need to prioritize unpacking!
Label the box with the room you plan to put in your new home and label some of the items inside so you know what’s inside. You would thank us if you didn’t have to open the fifteen boxes labeled “Kitchen” to find the one with dishes!
Try not to pack your boxes! It can be tempting to fill it up, but try to use small boxes for heavy items and large boxes for lighter items. Otherwise, you risk damaging the case and injuring the wearer and possibly damaging your belongings.
SOURCE QUALITY PACKING MATERIALS
Once you have a complete inventory of all the items to be moved, the next step is to get quality packing materials to wrap them. Taking an inventory will help you determine exactly how much packing material you need, the size and style of the box. If you already have a box or received one as a gift from a friend, look for one that is high quality, sturdy and reliable. Using old or damaged packing materials can compromise the safety of your transfer and have the potential to damage or damage your valuables in transit. Discuss with our team about the packaging materials we can offer. For our packing and moving services, we always use the highest quality boxes and moving materials to ensure that your goods receive maximum protection during transit.
When packing, make sure each box, bag or container you use is clearly labeled. Labeling your items offers a number of useful benefits. This allows you to easily navigate your things when you need to find something you have packed. Labels help movers direct goods when unloading them from moving trucks. The use of labels can also indicate when a box should be handled with extreme care if the items inside are fragile. Labeling all of your moving items can also help you keep track of everything in your inventory to make sure everything is accounted for and nothing gets lost during the move. You should consider the following information on the label you use: box contents, disposal location, and friability or not.
SECURE DOORS AND DRAWERS
An important step in preparing your items for moving is to close all furniture doors, cupboards and storefronts. This ensures that no accidents are caused by open doors or cupboards, dropped objects or injuries during activities. It is important to remember to remove any items inside beforehand to avoid damage or movement of items during shipping. By simply getting a roll of duct tape and covering all moving parts, you can protect yourself from potential unwanted incidents on moving day. It’s important to check with your mover beforehand because, for example, with a heavy dresser, we may want to remove the drawers for transport, which makes moving easier and also reduces the risk of damage.
