Preparing for a Move
Not many people recognize how much energy it takes to relocate to somewhere new. Especially when moving a great distance or transporting a large volume of items. When hiring a moving company, experience and reliable company practices will lighten the mental load you face during this time. Even when hiring a moving service, you will still bear some responsibility. Yet with a bit of due diligence and some professional advice, you will be all set with an affordable, stress-free relocation.
- Write out a task checklist regarding the steps you must take to fulfill the move. It will aid in helping you get things completed while also being able to address matters as they arise.
- If possible, hire your mover as early in the process as possible. 2 months in advance should give you plenty of time to get everything in order.
- Label all boxes clearly and use the proper packing materials. Be sure to label your fragile boxes as well.
- Either recruit the kids for packing duty or have family and friends help out by watching the kids so you can focus on the move.
- If you have unused rooms in the house, start packing those items weeks ahead of time.
- Make sure you know the name of your moving truck driver along with his cell phone information and ETA.
- The Internet should be your source in finding movers with largely positive feedback and reviews. Compare sites and read through people’s experiences to help make a stronger decision.
- Do what your moving company does and make an inventory list. It will be worthwhile in the case of discrepancies and it’s generally wise always to have a paper trail anyway.
