Pack and Move with Ease
We all know just how tiring and tedious it can be to shift houses. While packing everything can be a task in itself, the thought of getting all that stuff to some other place can be even worse. Add to that having to manage daily tasks, like going to work, traveling and even cooking and the whole situation starts to look like a nightmare. All you need is some proper management and plan.
Get a proper layout of your next house and mark your boxes accordingly. Then tell the in-charge where which boxes need to be placed. So, things like heavy furniture need not be moved inside the house later on if they’re already placed in the spot where they need to be unpacked. You also need to ensure that you pack up a box with essentials that you’ll need on the first night after moving into your new place. Unless you do this, you’ll only end up getting hassled by trying to open various different boxes to get to different things.
If you have multiple liquids lying around like toilet cleaners, perfumes, etc, make sure to pack these separately and not with the dry stuff. In case they leak, they won’t end up ruining any of your dry stuff that way.
The very first thing you need to do is to make a list of all the things that you own and need to be moved. Unless you do this, you’re bound to end up missing something that should’ve been in some particular carton or bag. Making a list will keep things organized and will help you figure out exactly where which thing is. Don’t shift into a house without checking everything first. See if all the lights work or all the taps run smoothly and so on so that you can shift in without having to get anything fixed.
The house should be in tip-top condition by the time you need to move in. It would be really wrong if you don’t check up on your movers and packers before finalizing on them. There could literally be a heaven and earth difference between the prices that different movers and packers have to offer. Make sure that you check their ratings, ask your friends if they know someone good and cost-effective and also ask at least 4-5 packers to come and take a survey of your house. It’ll help determine the costs and the time required for the move.
More often than not we end up hoarding stuff that we don’t need. And even though we know that we need to clear it up, we just keep putting it off until it’s really required. So, now that you have the opportunity to move out, make sure that you start clearing all unwanted things too. Try to donate or recycle all your unwanted things before you move into the next house. The major steps are to make sure you don’t miss anything and also not waste or throw it unless no use.
