Checklist When You Prepare for a Move 

»Posted by on Dec 30, 2017 in Move | 0 comments

Moving is exhilarating. There are things to do like packing all the belongings, hiring a moving company, unpacking when you arrive and many more. If you prepare late, all your energy would be spent because you can’t just do this task in one weekend. It will take you weeks to prepare, imagine packing everything in your house and loading it in the moving truck, wouldn’t that be challenging for you? The key here is to start early, pack wisely and do not procrastinate.


Pack Smartly

Start a few weeks before the moving date. It’s actually better to have a notebook and set a schedule of what to pack at a particular week. For example, week 1 should be allocated to packing the furniture in the living room, week 1 is the kitchen, week 3 is for the bedrooms, week 4 for the bathrooms and week 5 for packing the essential things you’re going to use once you arrive. Do not box up everything in one weekend; that would make you really tired. Remember that you have to save more energy on the day of the move because you still have unpacking things to do. Again, pack wisely.

Don’t Use Cardboard Boxes

Drop the typical cardboard boxes we use when moving. Se the eco-friendly study boxes with attachable lids. You don’t have to use bubble wraps and taping anymore, plus it’s cheaper than the ones offered by moving companies. The sturdy boxes would be rented by you, and would be collected once again after you unpack. It’s really wise and nature friendly, right?

Don’t Pack the Clothes in Your Closet

Again, you should pack wisely. If the clothes are resting at peace in your closet, you don’t have to get all of them, fold them and pack them in the luggage suit. It’s a waste of time and waste of space. Doing this will also save you time from ironing the clothes once you settled in your new house.

Haul the Basic Necessity

If you move into a nearby city, you can bring the basic items in your new house, probably a day before the move. You will need essentials like bathroom items and pajamas, so make sure you bring those and unpack them. The items should be for at least 2 days, because it will take you some few days before the new house gets to its normal routine. Pack some toiletries, pajamas and food that you can use/eat for the first 2 days.

Hire a Moving Company

Moving on your own is challenging, especially if you don’t have moving trucks. So it’s better to look for removal companies Gloucester aka moving professionals to help you with your move. They have the necessary equipment and packing materials to make your move an easy one. Make sure to ask for an on-site estimate, use your own packing boxes and check their insurance for any damage to your belongings. Enjoy the whole process. Moving into a new home should be an exciting experience.
