Moving is a complicated process. You should be looking for any way to make it easier on you and the people who are going to be helping you with your move. There are plenty of things that you can do to make your move go much more smoothly. Here are some things you should remember to keep the easy on you as possible.
Make a Detailed Plan
You are probably going to be moving a lot of things. The best way to make that easier on yourself is to make a detailed plan of everything that you are going to be moving. Start by taking an inventory of each of the rooms in your home. List the items that you are going to be packing in the room and as you pack your boxes, you check the items off your list. You can even note what box the items are packed in for quick access at your new home.
Your plan should also include important dates like when the movers are going to arrive, when you need to change your address by and other things that are critical to your move. You can use the plan as a check list, crossing things off as they are completed. This way you can organize the things that need done way in advance of doing them and cross them off as they are completed. It will also help you remember what needs done so you don’t miss anything important.
Purchase Packing Materials
Don’t wait until the night before you are packing to go out and buy all the supplies you are going to need to move. You might find the list quite long and yourself too short on time to buy it all.
Packing boxes generally come in three sizes: Small, medium and large. You want to be sure to have plenty of each of them for packing things up. Remember, the goal is to have all of the boxes weigh about the same amount. This means you are going to pack smaller boxes with more dense items, like books, and larger boxes with items that are a bit lighter and take up more space.
Don’t forget the additional supplies like packing tape, packing materials like bubble wrap and shrink wrap. Your move is going to need a lot of supplies so make sure that get everything that you need ahead of time.
Take your estimate of how long your move is going to take and add a month to it. You want to make sure to start planning your move way ahead of time. The more time you have to plan and pack, the less last minute rushing around that you will have to do. Rushing causes stress but being prepared will help you to calmly execute your move.
