Moving takes a lot of planning and time; it must in order to ensure that everything goes smoothly. Many times a move takes much more time than it needs, and this can be troublesome if the move needs to be planned and executed quickly due to it being timed with the ending of a lease or the start of a new job. Here are some tips for cutting time off of your move and ensuring that everything goes smoothly.
Make a List
Spending some time up front can help to save you lots of time on the back end of the move. Start by making a list for you move. Start your list with tasks that are going to need to be completed before the end of the move. Once your task list is complete, assign them an order that they must be completed within. Finally, take the ordered task list and assign them dates, moving backwards in time from the move day to the day you are making the list.
You now have a complete move schedule along with dates that the tasks must be completed within. If your list is complete, there will be no forgetting critical steps and trying to complete them at the last minute.
Make a Packing Plan
Part of your task lists should be a packing plan. The right time to get packing is the day after you figure out that you are going to be moving. There are plenty of things in your home that you are not going to need between now and the time that you move. Start your packing plan with those things. Then, as you move closer to the date, pack more and more things that you won’t need in that time. Finally, you can pack the last of your things in the days before your move so that everything is ready to be carried out to the truck on the day you are loading it up. Don’t wait until move day to finish packing.
You don’t have to move on your own. Most friends, neighbors, coworkers and family will be willing to give you a hand with your move. If you have completed the previous steps then you should have a task list. You can assign tasks to people willing to help you to get things off your list and shorten up your time line. Just remember to give helpers plenty of advanced notice that you will need their help. That way, they can plan accordingly.
