Moving homes is a daunting task. Especially if you’re doing it for the very first time…or if you’re doing it after a long period of time. Here are a few useful suggestions to help you with your task.
Have a before moving checklist
We are pretty sure you have a list for everything in regards to the move. The packing list and the moving day to do list is probably always in your hand as the day draws closer. However, most people forget to make a before the move checklist. Things like checking the neighborhood, calling pest control Bella Vista if necessary, informing the change in the phone and internet line, informing the change of address at work…these all go into said before moving list. Of course, what’s in it changes exclusively according to your needs and wants.
Use a professional service for cleaning up the mess
If you live in an apartment, or if you have plans of selling your home after moving out, it goes without saying that you will need to tidy up your home and leave it spick and span. Unfortunately, packing up an entire house cannot happen without a mess. Not only do you have to deal with throwing out all the unnecessary clutter and packing tapes and papers, this is also the moment where all the hidden dust jumps out at you; creating one huge mess. If you don’t want to be cleaning for days (especially since you have to settle in your new home as well) opt for a professional house cleaning service in Campbelltown.
Use professionals to pack and unpack your things
If you’re living a full and busy life with a supper hectic schedule, taking time off to pack and unpack your things can be nearly impossible. More often than not, you will find yourself simply dumping your belongings into packing boxes to “pack” and once you move to your new place, your belongings will remain in those boxes for months; simply because you don’t have time to unpack. This can be very disorganized and will inevitably only make your busy life more hectic. To avoid this, consider using a professional service for packing and unpacking your things. Most movers offer this service; so don’t forget to ask your mover if they offer this service.
Be organized about your packing – pack and move valuables before hand
If you’re a private person who can’t stand others handling your things, getting a professional packing and unpacking service can feel a little unsettling. So the best option for you is doing the packing yourself. Arm yourself with a sharpie/marker and cardboard boxes for this. Start from one room. Make sure to mark the boxes clearly on what’s inside it…and which room it has to go to. If you’re packing fragile things, make sure to mark the “upside” of the box. If you’re using a mover, it might be a good idea to personally move only your valuables…just in case.
