Buying a house, or moving into a new home can be a super exciting time, moving day however, not so much. There are few things more painstaking, slow and messy than gathering up all of your belongings, boxing them up and then moving them elsewhere only to be unpacked again. It is precisely for this reason that you need to make sure that you are on the ball when it comes to get ready for your moving day. I would also recommend that you go to a site such as Shiply, and find yourself a great removal service to complete your house move in a fast and efficient manner. Here then are some tips for you on getting ready for your house move.
One of the biggest keys to making your house move run smoothly is to really get ahead of the game when it comes to organisation. From the moment that you know when your moving day will be, start packing up things which don’t get used a lot, start small and gradually pack more and more in the build up to the big day. If you do all of your boxing up last minute, you’ll find yourself in chaos.
Boxing up all of your worldly possessions gives you a great opportunity to start clearing things out which you simply don’t need. Keep a box or two to one side for things which are surplus to requirements and then sell or donate them to get them out of the house.
Put a System in Place
If you have multiple people helping you with your home move it is important to put a solid system in place regarding who is doing what. Make sure that you manage this well so that no boxes get confused with others, and that everyone knows what they are doing.
Label, Label, Label
Every box which you pack up should have a selection of labels on the side. Each box should state whether it is light or heavy, whether it is fragile or expensive, as well as having a sticker which indicates which room the box is destined for.
Next up it is time to think about the logistics of moving day, who will be helping? How much stuff are you moving? What kind of transport do you need? Who drives? All of these questions should be in your mind when it comes to working out the logistics, align all of this first and moving day will be a cinch.
Communication With Movers
I’d always recommend that you use a professional removal firm, at the very least for your heavy, large or expensive items. It will be important therefore that you have regular communication with your movers as to what time they should arrive, how far they will be traveling and what kind of vehicle is required.
Follow these tips and your moving day will run like clockwork and give you minimal stress.
