Tips to make your move easier
- Stay organized: The most demanding part of any move is packing. You cannot just shove everything in the back of a truck and call it a day. You ought to plan and pack in an orderly manner to ensure everything is secure and easy to spot. All the boxes need to be clearly labelled based on the contents and rooms they belong to. If done right, unpacking will be a breeze.
- Find a sitter: If your children are at the adventurous stage where their eager minds will not let them sit still, you ought to look into hiring a sitter. You don’t want them running around delicate boxes on the day of the move. They may end up breaking your valuables or worse still get injured. To prevent such a menace, let the sitter keep an eye on them till you have relocated and unpacked.
- Pack your essentials separately: After the long day of packing, loading, unloading, you are bound to be dog-tired. You will not be able to muster the strength to unpack everything right away. To avoid the hassle of looking through tons of boxes to find your everyday staples, its best you pack them all in one place.
Find a clear plastic bin and place all your essentials like toothbrush, comb, medication, water bottle etc. The clear bin will stand out from the rest of the boxes.
Why you should hire a professional moving company
We recommend hiring professional movers for the reasons listed below.
- First, they have all the right supplies. They have boxes, wardrobe boxes, tape, moving dollies, trucks, a ramp on the truck, and the right crew.
- When you use professional movers, there’s a lower chance of damage not only to your belongings, but also to your rental property.
- Professional movers are also insured so if anything happens to your belongings or your rental property, the moving company is responsible for compensating you or the landlord.
