While it is true that moving is one of the most stressful tasks of family life, but you can make your moving experience truly easy and exciting through research. When it comes to moving, you may consider getting rid of unnecessary or unused items from home for lesser stuff to pack and more organized moving. You can do a garage sale of stuff you are not using or donate them to charity. Sorting out things in their own category is very helpful to pack things easier and more organized, so sot your things in category like clothing, shoes, books, and important papers or documents. You have to do your homework and research for a trusted, reliable, and reputable moving company for less stress and hassle-free moving experience on the date you have chosen. The ideal time to hire a moving company is at least a month before your desired moving date, and find the cheapest time of the month to set an appointment.
Take into account the traffic, necessary stops, and detours when you make your plan, so figure out the most efficient and easiest way to get to your new home. Before they slip your mind, create a must-to-do list such as the things you need to prepare, important reminders, contact information of people who will help you, and other things that come to your mind that will be beneficial to your moving. Set up a map and organize everything by getting an oversized calendar and be sure to mark the empty boxes with the daily tasks you need to prepare. It pays to visit your local liquor or convenience store to see if they can have you recycle their used boxes, and if they do, you can grab a handful to help the environment by saving paper in your moving journey. The best way of transporting your electronics is using its original boxes when you purchased them. Go to your local hardware store and purchase tools and supplies you need when moving such as packing tape, packing paper, cardboard boxes, extra screws, packing a paper, putty, new industrialized broom, and measuring tape.
A week ahead of your moving date, call your electricity, cable, internet and gas providers to figure out when you need to shut everything off. Gather all remotes, cords, or cable boxes you need to return. The trickiest to pack are your decorative items so pack them several weeks before you move. You have to change your mailing address, registered address and your shipping address if you want them all in your new home.
