You’ve chosen your new home, and are all set to begin the next chapter in your life.
You can see a finish line, it’s nearly there – oh so close. All you have to do is take a few steps. There are oh so many aspects are involved in moving, that it’s so easy to forget about something here or there. Not to worry, we have some helpful tidbits of advice which are sure to make sure you don’t miss out on those easily overlooked issues. These pieces of advice are sure to help your moving day be a smooth one, well-removed of unnecessary last-minute headaches or disasters.
Removing those heavy or fragile items from the tops of dressers.
If you try to move a dresser as it is with all of its longtime resident items within it, it can spell disaster. Dressers do not like change and they aren’t designed to be moved around much, that’s especially true while it is full of odds and ends. The dresser can be a casualty of the moving process, along with all the fragile items within! To avoid this silly scenario, simply remove everything before the big move. If the dresser is on the larger side, then it’s usually fine to leave clothes inside, but any solid items inside should be removed.
Make sure that there is a parking spot at both locations before the move.
On the day of the big move, it’s all too common for the movers to not have secured a car parking space for the truck to come and pick up the goods. This can create some serious logistical problems as there is nowhere near to park and therefore things have to be carried long distances to an available spot, increasing work time, and price! In order to avoid these headaches it’s simply a case of reserving the spaces beforehand. This is going to make for a shorter, easier and cost-effective move.
Labeling Boxes Before the Move
Often when the move is complete people find that the boxes are moved into the wrong room? Imagine having the movers bring tonnes of items in only to find that you still have a big job on your hands when it comes to getting your furnishings and heavy boxes of items in totally the wrong room. In order to avoid this simply label each box and make sure that you want boxes labeled a certain way to go to a specific room. That way your life is made so much easier after the main bulk of the moving is done, you just have to unpack and love life.
Reserving the Lift.
If you’re moving to a high floor of an apartment building you might be able to coordinate with building management in order to reserve the lift, so you can get to those upper floors with ease, otherwise organising the usage of a building can be a massive hassle.
Hire professionals. So often people try and cut costs and corners by moving everything themselves. However, it is not a great idea. Moving is stressful enough as it is, without having to haul and move boxes all by yourself. You will be better off if you hire professional movers to take care of the heavy lifting.
