An easy move isn’t impossible to acquire. So, you’ve finally found that perfect place you’ve been searching for months. The excitement is still there; you have all these plans and amazing decorating ideas in mind and you just can’t wait until everything has settled in. But whenever you think about the process of moving you get a tad bit disgruntled. Where to start is one of the main problems you are having and you just can’t seem to find the motivation to get it done. You wander around your current home, looking at all the things that you’ll have to box up and set aside, and it becomes more than a little overwhelming. One of your first moves was perhaps to hire Northshore Removalist in which case you’re already off to a great start. They’ve come to your house, analyzed what you’ll be moving and have given you a very affordable estimate. So now the time is drawing nearer and nearer, and you still don’t know where to begin.
But there is no need to be discouraged and feel overwhelmed. If you take things in stride, moving isn’t as difficult as it may seem. In fact, if you follow some simple tips and tricks, you’ll be right on your way to a successful move that doesn’t carry along all the stress that has been causing you to feel pessimistic about your move.
Get all the necessary supplies together. Scissors, tape, boxes, labels and a marker are some of the essentials you’ll need in order to successfully pack your belongings with limited amounts of stress. Once you have sourced all of these things designate a spot where you will keep them. Try as best as possible not to separate the items from each other or return them immediately after use on another project. This will save you from having to go on a game of hide and seek due to misplacing one of these very necessary tools.
Make a to do list. Many underestimate the power that a to do list has when it comes to adding ease to move. And even more people don’t do to do list properly. Rather than writing down assignments on bits and pieces of paper that will easily get lost, designate a notebook to make your check lists in. Something small and compact that will fit easily in your pocket will work just fine. This will allow you to be able to have it on you at all times, and add and check off things on the list throughout the day.
Label and number your boxes. There’s nothing worse than not knowing where you packed what and not remember if you did indeed pack something. Labeling your box will eliminate this problem. Numbering your boxes is a great way to keep track of things and know immediately if there’s something missing.
Start packing weeks before your move. This doesn’t mean that you’ll have to get the furniture wrapped up and start watching movies on the living room carpet. But there are certainly things in the house that you use rarely, or clothing that you won’t wear due to the season. Pack these things away first. However, don’t try to rush. Pace yourself, take your time, and try to enjoy the process.
Make it a family and friends affair. You will need the help, and you’ll enjoy the company. You will be pleasantly surprised at the immense amounts of work that you can get done when you are having fun, chatting away with your loved ones. There’s no need to tackle things on your own, and your friends and family sure will enjoy the time spend with you and be happy to offer their hand where it’s needed.
Hire a moving company. Sure, it’s perfectly fine to get your friend’s assistance when it comes to packing and moving the small things. But for heavier pieces like furniture and also for things that may easily break, it’s best to leave the job up to the professionals. Northshore Removalist is a trusted company and is one that offers peace of mind your move will be handled properly.
