Moving Doesn’t Have To Be A Hassle
Moving companies may ease the stress during your move, however, they can also tend to be financially stressful. Luckily, there are some things you can do to make your move smooth, all while giving you peace of mind. Check them out below: Use Suitcases for Heavy Items. Things like books can get very heavy. Putting them in suitcases with wheels or handles make them easier to transport. Take a photo of the wire connections on your electronics before you unplug and pack them up. This will ensure you are able to quickly and correctly reassemble and reconnect. Purchase clear bins for things you’ll need first once you’ve moved in to save yourself time looking for your toothbrush in dozens of cardboard boxes. Organize and label your boxes by room and weight. Categorizing by rom opposed to item makes unpacking a breeze and organizing by weight ensure you can place lighter items on top of heavy ones so you don’t have to risk breaking your delicates.
Number your boxes and keep track. Have a note set up in your phone or in a notebook that keeps track of the exact items in each box. That way you know where everything is when you’re unpacking and you have record of it all. Trust us, you will thank yourself later. Don’t make the mistake of paying for your boxes. Boxes can get expensive, so remember that you can get them for free off of Kijiji, Craigslist, local grocery stores and nearby coffee shops. Be prepared with extra boxes, packing tape, paper towels, cleaning supplies and garbage bags. If you have the time, move slowly. Take things over the course of a few weeks to ease the transition for yourself. Taking your time will ensure you won’t miss anything and there will be no need to hire professionals. Bicycle boxes are great and sturdy. They are perfect for pictures and mirrors. You can stuff towels and sheets down the sides for optimum security and to make sure that things don’t slide and break. Hire a sitter for the day. Whether for young children or pets, both can easily get overwhelmed during a move. Arranging to have them stay somewhere during the move will not only make it easier on yourself, but on them as well. That way you know they are cared for. Treat your movers! This one is simple but very necessary.
Whether you decide to hire professionals or recruit your friends and family, be sure to have food and drinks readily available for everyone. On a busy and tiring day, your crew will definitely appreciate a cold drink. These are just a few tips to help ensure a smooth move. Let us know in the comments if you have anymore! Your Lifestyle.
