The Planning Process
Whatever the distance of your move, it only takes a few blocks or miles to start a headache. When moving comes to mind, many people can think back to a time they may have helped a friend move and remember the stress and how tired they were the next day. While those are just a couple of the inconveniences associated with moving, they don’t have to be. Organization and hiring a helping hand are the keys to a smooth move.
Very few of us can handle a DIY move without consulting movers. Even with a couple of cold six-packs and pizza, not all of your friends may have consistent schedules to help you throughout. That’s why investing in professional movers is your best bet for a seamless relocation. Consulting a moving company can give you an in-depth rundown of how the move will be approached, including schedules of pricing for a number of services.
Whether if it’s an apartment, house or room move, the procedure requires a lot more hands than you’d expect. You won’t know how much you have until you begin the packing process. After some research, book a consultation with a moving company that covers your major needs around 2-3 months before you move.
Try to avoid packing last minute. Give yourself ample time in the coming weeks to readily pack all the appliances, plants, housewares, and clothes.
The Actual Moving Process
Moving day! When the day comes to get the boxes out the door and into your new home, we guarantee that we will be there.
Here are a few moving day tips to help make your day a little bit easier:
- The key to moving day is having everything you need close at hand, no further than an arm’s reach. Create a moving day essentials box. This is beyond just what you need in your purse or book bag. This would include things like toilet paper, a pot or a pan to cook that first new home meal in, toothbrushes and toothpaste, extra socks, etc. Most of your normal items will be packed so it’s a good idea to have these things readily available
- Take a picture of how all your electronics’ cords are set up. This can save you hours of stress when it’s time to get your TV, or computer set-up.
- Keep cleaning supplies nearby both for the old place and the new place. You never know when there could be a spill.
- Make sure your phone is always charged. It’s not a bad idea to buy a portable charger and an extra cord as a back-up as well. A dead cell phone could be a real bummer on moving day.
