Moving can be a hectic event, with lots of planning and preparation. If you’re going to do it right, there are a few things you should do before the big day arrives. Here are some tips for preparing for your move-day:
Hire a high quality moving company – do your research to find the best company for you. Check reviews and rates, as well as what services they offer.
Get boxes that fit well – don’t just take any box! You want them to be able to hold all of your items without breaking or spilling over. The top-quality boxes are the ones you’ll want to go for, and they will also be labeled with a weight range.
Label your boxes – this is so important. If it’s not labelled then there might be some chance that someone else may put something in them without knowing what was inside or intended. It could end up taking longer to find things because of this!
Organize packing supplies – make sure you have all the tape and bubble wrap you need before anything starts. Making sure everything has its own place can help save time later on when unpacking as well.
Try using clothes hangers instead of box wrapping items individually for more convenience during moving day, such as clothes and linens, by sliding each item onto individual hangers, then placing the hangers into a box.
If you’re unsure of how to pack items for heavy-duty use in your new home’s climate, do some research on what will work best or consult with professional movers to get advice.
Plan out space – take measurements and create floor plans before any packing begins so that everything can be moved efficiently and without difficulty. If you have furniture pieces that are too large or wide for certain spaces they’ll need to be disassembled and reassembled after moving day is finished.
Tape together loose cords – collect all wires, chargers, cables, etc., making sure not to leave them running across floors where someone might trip! This could lead to disaster if it’s something really important.
