Moving is a stressful time in any one’s life. You really need to be on top of your game as you need to deal with the kids running around, cleaning, packing, losing things, and running out of boxes, dealing with furniture removal companies and the list goes on.
The moving process will always be a stress, but you can put measures in place to make things a little easier.
Here are a few tips and tricks that you can use next time you move:
Plan ahead: Make a list of what needs to be done before your move. Assign tasks to family members and friends who are willing to help you.
Clean-ups: Before you move, give your home a good clean out. Get rid of everything that you don’t use or need. This will save you from moving items that you don’t use.
Boxes: You can never have too many boxes. Start collecting boxes a month or two in advance. You will oven find boxes at your local super market or you can buy boxes at Box-It. Also stock up on bubble wrap for your breakables, packing tape for your boxes and marking pens to mark the boxes.
Pack timeously: You don’t need to start packing too early. A week or two before your move should be ok. You don’t want to live amounts boxes weeks before your move.
Transport: Consider low cost furnitureremoval from Power Truck Hire. They offer a great DIY furniture removal service.
Baby sitter: Do yourself a favour and arrange a baby sitter for your kids who are too young to help with your move. It may sound nasty but you will save a lot of time if your small kids are out of the way.
Moving times: To save on transport costs, it is better to move during the week. Start moving as soon as possible as the day is going to be long and you want to finish up as early as possible.
Arriving at your new home: Put your boxes and furniture directly in the room that they need to be on. This will save you a lot of time moving things from room to room all day.
Un-packing: It is always better to try unpacking everything that you have moved on moving day. Push through and put everything in its place. You will be thankful the next day if you do this.
