Small Moving 2017: Easy Moving and Packing Tips and Tricks
While it is true that moving is one of the most stressful tasks of family life, but you can make your moving experience truly easy and exciting through research. When moving it is best to get rid of unnecessary or unused items from home so that your things are more organized and less stuff to pack up. It is a good idea holding a garage sale for stuff you’re not using anymore or better yet donate them to charity. It is also helpful sorting out your things in category like clothing, shoes, books, and important papers or documents. You have to do your homework and research for a trusted, reliable, and reputable moving company for less stress and hassle-free moving experience on the date you have chosen. It is best to hire a moving date for at least thirty to forty-five days before your desired move, and find the cheapest time of the month to set an appointment which is usually Tuesday or Wednesday as compared to busy Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and Friday.
Figure out the most efficient and easiest way to get to your new home, taking into account the traffic, necessary stops, and detours when you are making your plan. Making a list of the things you need to prepare, important reminders, contact information of people who will help you, and other things that come to your mind that will be beneficial to your moving. Organize by getting an oversized calendar and mark the white empty boxes with everyday task that you need to prepare until you are able to complete everything before the moving date to make sure you won’t miss anything. You can visit your convenience or liquor store to see if they can hand you recycle used boxes, and if they do, you can grab a handful to help the environment by saving paper in your moving journey. The best way of transporting your electronics is using its original boxes when you purchased them, so check if you still have the original boxes for your appliances and electronics, or you can also use bubble wrap, quilted blankets, and sturdy tape to protect your tv and other delicate items. You can also purchase important supplies and tools that will help you in your moving such as packing tape, masking tape, double tape, packing paper, cardboard boxes, new industrialized broom, extra screws, packing a paper, putty, and measuring tape.
A week ahead of your moving date, call your electricity, cable, internet and gas providers to figure out when you need to shut everything off. Gather all remotes, cords, or cable boxes you need to return. The trickiest to pack are your decorative items so pack them several weeks before you move. It is very important to update or change your mailing address, registered address and your shipping address for your credit card, bills, and online accounts if you want them all in your new home.
