Moving from your current house to a new house can be a very complicated endeavour. You will have to pack up all your possessions and ensure that they get to the new location safely and quickly. It will take quite a long time for you to finish all the packing as well. We will be giving you a few tips to simplify the packing process so that you can enjoy a hassle free moving day.
Never keep packing till it’s too late. You need a carefully thought out plan to figure out what you should pack first and what should be packed last. It will be easier for you if you write up a schedule with different days dedicated for the packing of different items. Before you pack you need to sort out what you will need and what you can give away or throw into the trash. Your house will be packed full of stuff that you will not even be aware of. It’s in our nature to collect tiny knick knacks and sentimental items. In the end, all of them add to the clutter. Leave yourself a month or two to pack. This will make it easier when it comes to calling a removalist.
The pile that you throw away has to be sorted carefully. There could be things that you can sell in a garage sale or give away to friends. Some things should be disposed of safely with a care for the environment. Think of reusing and recycling. Material such as paper, boards, glass, plastic and metal can be recycled. Once you know exactly what you have to pack you need to figure out how you will be moving the items. If you’re moving a shorter distance you can get the assistance of friends but a professional service will be needed for longer distances. Some heavy items have to be moved carefully lest they sustain damage. This is where you call in a furniture removalist to transport your furniture in its original condition. The movers have to be notified beforehand about the heavy items that are to be transported. You can discuss strategies with them about how best to transport your possessions.
The sizes of the vehicle you use have to be chosen according to the amount of possessions you are transporting. It is better if you don’t have to make multiple trips. Establish a system when it comes to packing. Once you take inventory as explained above you can label the boxes you put the items in so you can reduce the confusion you face when you unpack. Make sure to buy plenty of boxes, packing insulation such as bubble wrap, newspapers etc. and markers to label the boxes.
