Tips to ease your moving process
- Sort your items. Reduce the load you have by donating, selling or throwing out stuff that is no longer important. Consider old clothes, books, broken furniture and most garage equipment. This in turn lowers the cost charged on the load. The lower the weight the lesser the costs incurred.
- Make an inventory of all items packed. Use a spreadsheet to know the number and identity of items in a box. This ensures you do not lose items during transit. Check off boxes in the list as they arrive at their destination.
- Work with a timeline. Estimate the duration required to; pack, transport, unpack and arrange. Use this estimate to plan your activities and remember to leave time for events that may arise.
- Pack items from one room in a similar colored box. It is easy when unpacking and arranging.
- Take pictures of the items and note their condition as you pack. In case the goods are broken, scratched or tampered with, you can countercheck using photographs taken and demand for compensation.
- After packing all items, place them in a strategic location for easy loading into the moving vehicle.
